Wolverine 'Montague' Chelsea Boot
Good boot, but slightly overpriced
This is my second set of Wolverine Boots. Overall this particular model is of good quality. The stitching is fine and soles are good. No break-in period. Very comfortable. I have worn them every day in the last month while traveling overseas. I have had no issues. No blisters and my feet are dry at the end of the day. The balance is man-made -- not leather, and really for $270 dollars I would expect a little bit more. So that is why I gave them four stars. They do run a full size large. If you wear 11, buy size 10. Good pair of boots, though slightly overpriced.
Fantastic Quality, Runs a FULL Size Large
These boots run a FULL size large and I respectfully disagree with the other reviews posted here as concerns size. I usually wear size 11.5 (by brand: Clarks 10.5M, Allen Edmonds 11C, US military 11.5D, Timberland 11.5M, New Balance 12D, and Adidas 12D) and initially ordered these boots 1/2 size down from my usual size (based on the other reviews posted here) and found them 1/2 inch too long in length, but wearable in the width. I returned those boots and ordered a second pair one full size down from my usual size to see if I could do better and found the second pair to be a perfect fit in length and snug (but not tight) in width across the ball of the foot -- what you want in a boot without laces as they will stretch. You cannot beat the quality of these boots (in material and workmanship) and I will enjoy them for many years. Highly recommended.
The shoes definitely run a little large. I generally wear a 10 but the 9.5 fit quite well. They need breaking in which is a little dissapointing but they do it pretty quickly.
One of the most beautiful boots of this kind I've found anywhere. Have a few pairs of Timberlands and a pair of Blundstones like this; they don't hold a candle to the Wolverines. But the Wolverines are a tad bit dressier than those models, but still casual enough to wear with jeans. The leather is top quality, the soles are more of a dress shoe sole. Order a half size down. Ordered an 11M, need to go down to the 10.5---now, I just need to wait & see if Nordstrom gets them in a 10.5; I'll probably order the black AND the brown.
