Wolverine Plainsman 6” Boots (For Men)
Closeouts. Built by professionals for professionals, Wolverine's Plainsman 6" boots give you the best foundation to start off the work day, thanks to burnished, ultra-durable Horween leather and a super-grippy Vibram® 360 degree lug rubber outsole for dependable on-site traction.
Reviewed by Lawton Grub from Colorado on Monday, May 6, 2013Great boot., love the soles, just the right mix of stiffness and cushion. First day I walked seven miles in them. Wolverines do run big and wide so keep this in mind when ordering. They are very reasonable priced for a boot made in the USA. You will notice the quality.
Reviewed by Rancher from Kansas on Monday, April 15, 2013Great boot.
I did replace the insert with a Filson cork insert and they fit much better.
The original insert had too much arch.
If they hold up over time, they could be the greatest boot for the price ever.
'A Poor Man's 1000 Mile Boot"
Reviewed by Slimmy from Michigan on Wednesday, March 6, 2013Good boot. Nice heavy leather, requires some break-in. Sole is nice tread vibram. I have a narrow foot, usually a 9, but I ordered 1/2 down and they fit good. Decent insole.
Reviewed by E from Denver on Sunday, March 3, 2013Great Boots that are "Made in USA." Great tread, insoles, and breathable with good socks. Almost two-tone with natural leather appearance. Classic, stylish look with blue jeans.
Reviewed by Jonathan from Nashville on Saturday, March 2, 2013These boots have top-quality leather, a Vibram tread, and nothing else. No lining, not even on the tongue; no padding at ankle or tongue. I think this is purely for cost savings, not for comfort, quality, or style. I might have kept them anyway, but they were much too large. My feet are pretty much 10 EEE; 10 in almost any brand fits, though often the only wide width available is 4E and they are a little roomy. I ordered 10 EW. The boots were at least an 11, and EW seems to equal 4E, so in a size 11 they were far too wide. I opted to stick with modern boots with cushy soles and linings. They typically last only a year, but feel so much better.
Reviewed by Mr. Philadelphia from South Philly on Thursday, January 24, 2013I'm a general contractor and purchased these for work. "True to size" is a subjective thing -- I take a size 9, which for these boots, measures 11" on the inside and 12" on the outside. I have slender feet of normal width, which means that I often have issues finding a boot that will fit around my ankles, and yet allow some wiggle room for my toes. These fit perfectly.
For comparison, I also take a size 9 in Chippewa's 6" lace up boot (20065) and Red Wing's 9014 6" boot. These are roomier in the toebox than the aforementioned boots, without feeling clunky. I wear a size 42 regular width in Birkenstocks and usually a size 10 in sneakers and other types of shoes.
No lining on the collar will allow these boots to breathe more easily during summer use.
Snap them up while you still can. I imagine that these boots were discontinued because Wolverine realized that most people weren't willing to spend full retail for standard issue work boots, even if they're actually worth it.
