I went to the shoeshop to try on a pair of Iron Rangers - again, but a pair of beautiful boots caught my eyes. It was the Wolverine Montgomery. It is pressed on the boot that it is a 1000 mile series boot, but on the website they are not in that category? http://www.wolverine.com/us/1000mile/#/GARRISON/Montgomery The Iron Rangers is about $415 and the Wolverine is $315 I cant believe how cheap they are. They are buttery soft and look very well made. The comfort is in an entire different league in the Wolverines, they have padding and built up under the foot and stuff and are alot more comfortable then the Iron Rangers. The only explanation I have is that either they are just not known here as a brand like the Red Wings and therefore they cant sell them for more, or that they are in fact inferior. Does anyone have them? I'm sure they will be more comfortable in the long run but I´m a little torn because they are made entirely different then the Red Wings, they will not get the same patina over time because of the softer leather. I have a hard time understanding which of these boots are more well made, the Wolverines have a good sole that looks much more complicated then the Red Wings but the leather is thinner. Another thing I like about them is the fact that the sole isn't flat - which means it will work even during the first snow. I was also looking at the Montague, because the easy of putting it on when you have a child wanting to go out in a hurry. http://www.wolverine.com/us/1000mile/#/GENTLEMAN/Montague The brown ones looks alot better then the blacks, they have an oiled appearance and will develop patina fast. They are also labeled "1000 mile" imprinted on the boot itself. This boot is $415 and feels too expensive for what it is compared to the Montgomery.
