BOOTS FOR SALE:
ABOUT THE BOOT GUY: The boot guy reviews started out as my way to help people make better buying decisions when it came to buying footwear ONLINE. I wanted to be the go-to guy on the net when people had questions about boots and gear.
My qualifications are deeply rooted in manufacturing and sales. I have spent the last twenty-five plus years working as a soft goods designer and prototype builder for outdoor gear. My first job was in workwear sales. I developed a passion for listening to people’s problems on the sales floor, paired with an understanding of materials I was able to help my customers make better buying decisions. As online retail became fully established as the mainstay of the future of retail and knowing that I could help even more people online by pairing them with the right products for their needs, The Boot Guy was born.
It wasn’t long before my YouTube and Instagram accounts were noticed by my targeted audience. Also, people who work in the industry. Now that I had the companies in my corner I was able to obtain more products and create more online videos. But, we all need to work and make money right! For the last four years, I have been working as a photographer. Mostly in the commercial spectrum. Dabling where the money takes me. My main clients are from the footwear industry and offbeat fashion entrepreneurs. As a hobby, I spent years photography the streets of Chicago and alternative sporting events such as skateboarding, urban mountain biking, and rock climbing.
I want to capture the details I see in every product I hold by using all my developed talents to enhance your visual experience. My goal is to take you on my journey, not only to help teach you about the products but to help inspire the purchases you make. I want to introduce you to the people that make your favorite items possible.
From the conceptual design departments to the hands of the people on the manufacturing floor that builds it. No matter what ” IT ” is.
today in the boot guide we are looking at the overpass from Wolverine all right so I got one question for everybody out there I've got a personal question all about this contour wealth system we're gonna save that to the end but let's take a really good look at what makes this boot so comfortable and a beautiful transition boot for somebody that's coming from laces and wants to go into a pool on boot first we got to start with the sole material this new sole material that wolverine is using on their contour welts they're stepping it up from their original first and second generation it's a softer more pliable more spongy more lazyboy type feel material to be very very bouncy for some people it might be too bouncy it might feel too much like a gym shoe and that's what's making it a nice transition from ultra soft comfortable lace work boots to something like this that could be a great summertime boot for somebody who doesn't want to mess around with laces or for somebody who needs to take their boots on and off from job sites now this is not the safety to overpass but between this and the comto overpass they're pretty much the same boots outside of the actual compo and since it is Wolverine and Wolverine understands how to make a boot with a safety toe in it I don't imagine there being any size or fit issues between the two models I mean I've never heard of anybody going from a soft toe to a cop toe in their same size in the brand the Wolverine brand in having a hard time so the overpass is a waterproof plus boot which means that there's a membrane inside there there's a barrier built into it and it's also waterproof treated leather so it seems sealed it's taped it's gonna keep you dry now are you gonna stand around in buckets of water day in and day out in this boot probably not it's probably not the best idea but going from mud to rain to dry days and just having something dependable on your foot this system will actually keep you dry now let's look at all this rubber stuff around the toe now like I said it's not a safety toke but this hard rubber shell that they're using unto contour welt on this overpass is a little bit stiffer than anything I felt before on a soft oh it's a little bit thicker it's got some backbone to it now if you drop it a cinderblock on your foot it's not gonna help you at all it's just gonna crush your toes but if you're using it to kick stuff into place kicking wheels you know just maybe if you're wearing this in the landscaping world this is gonna be a-okay this is gonna give you enough backing that you can kick stuff all day long and it's not gonna transmit through to your foot now if you're repeatedly kicking a concrete wall yeah you're gonna feel it but you're gonna feel it in a comp – anyway now this side rubber stuff that you see that's going on here which is pretty much all just aesthetics I don't see any real purpose for it in there they claim that this is going to hold the boot together better by having these materials here but I don't see that happen because if your boots falling apart here it's falling apart from flexes and there's really nothing you can do except use one single piece of material and follow that material all the way underneath the boot now inside the boot what you find is a really nice liner now Wolverine is known for being able to make mass-produced boots feel the same all the way through so when you buy a 9 in a Wolverine and you move into a different style from them 99% of the time it's gonna fit the same way their lasts are very Universal amongst all their numbers now I'm not talking here to do over means here I'm only talking the work Wolverines and some of the casual Wolverines they're kind of built in the exact same way so knowing what's going on inside this boot on the way they lay things out and how everything is die-cut and mechanically cut you know that it's gonna fit from boot – boot – boot now with that being said with the insides being all synthetics all polyesters and all waterproof materials like you find in every good soft work boot you're losing a few things that you normally find and pull on boots you're not finding and leather heel stop there's no leather back there it's just the material and it's reinforced so you lose that type of comfort feel that you'll find in a real pair of Wellington but if you've never worn Wellington's before – hell of a great place to start so inside the boot they're using an oral light and when I receive this pair it was crammed inside there now it is the right size insole for the boot which just leads me to believe that they're mediums are truly medium so when I head it on my foot yeah it felt like a 12 medium and that's the thing is that these Wellington's from Wolverine they're not coming d ee Triple E they're coming medium wide extra wide that's how a Wolverine works most of the contour well boots so the mediums are a true medium so if you're a d width you can go with a medium if you're a double e with definitely go with a wide and if you're wider than that go with extra water now getting the boot on and off in comparison to an actual pull-on boot a western-style or a real Wellington boot something that's made around the whole Wellington style this is a nice loose general fit this feels like something that's more of an oil rigging boot where it's it comes on and off really easy it's more of an emergency type thing the way it kind of slides off you don't really need a boot jack though I would say to always use a boot Jack with pull-on boots but it does just slide off nice the contour well offers a nice platform in order for you to get something behind that boot to make it easier coming off so like I said earlier going between laces and pull on boots why is it a good boot because of that nice loose fit how easy your foot turns inside this thing and how easy it feels at the top of the foot now a really nice pair of Wellington should be much lower here it should hold your foot more but that's a really uncomfortable place for people who didn't grow up wearing western or wellington boots so when you move from laces and you move into something like this you need it to be tight but you also need it to be comfortable and Wolverine is tackling that by adding a bit of padding right into this section here so when your foot is bouncing around on there when you're not used to wearing this type of boot you don't really notice it it's not banging around in there your foot is sitting in a nice cushion section alright so let's get to my puzzlement I don't understand the stitch I know it looks like a welt but it doesn't feel like a welt I would really appreciate if one of you guys out there who is a subscriber to the channel if you guys have an old pair contour welts if you want to donate them to the deconstruction series that I do where I cut the boots apart so we can see what's going on I would really like to know if this is just an aesthetic I can move the threads around and I always could in all the contour welds but it's not until this particular pair of boots that it has left me questioning why it's there could it be because I've seen a lot of boots being built over the last year and a half two years I've seen a lot of the processes and the machines that do this that put these pieces together and I don't understand that maybe do I think it's just there for aesthetics yeah but what I like to be proven wrong of course I would I would like to see if this weld is real and if it does actually aid in the whole construction and keeping this boot together so that's the Wolverine overpass pool on Wellington boot with a soft toe 100% waterproof if you currently own a pair of Wolverine Wellington's please comment below let guys know what you think about a Wolverine Wellington and if you've owned other Wellington's and you can compare these two boots for which one is more comfortable which one's more
