Wolverine Creek Bed shoes UPDATE!
So far I have worn the Wolverine Creek Bed shoes almost every day in some form or fashion. Hiking through the woods, streets and ponds around my house. Only one issue so far and that is pretty small. Check out the update here! So far I really like these shoes!
I don’t have a lot to add but, now that the Wolverine Creek Bad shoes have a few more months of wear I can safely say that they are the best shoe I have ever used for my activities that involve lots of water. This has included more hikes to the holler and subsequent wading around in the creek as well as several more kayaking trips.

Wearing the Wolverine Creek Bed shoes while kayaking
I have now worn the Wolverine Creek Bed shoes on numerous occasions on varying types of terrain. They have worked really great in all situations so far. I have continued to wear them on my exercise hikes to the holler. I also wore them while backpacking and on a kayaking trip.

The Wolverine Creek Bed shoe is certainly an interesting looking shoe. Wolverine list it as a Multi-Sport shoe but the words “performance water shoe” are printed on a hang tag on the shoe. All I can add is that after wearing them down in a creek bed, I can honestly say the name “Creek Bed” seems very apt and is a good indicator of the type of terrain these shoes are designed for.

uppers still in good shape after several months
July and August turned out to be very hot and dry and I rode my bike a lot more than I hiked. However, I did wear the Wolverine Compass boots several more times, whether hiking for exercise or riding my Crank Forward bike. I also recently got a mountain bike and used the boots on a half dozen of those rides. I know this may not sound like an ideal way to test a hiking boot but since I ended up walking up so many hills, I actually put in several miles this way. They have continued to be one the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. To read the rest of the update along with the entire review please click here.

I would consider the Wolverine Compass a mid-weight hiking boot. They are lighter and more flexible than full on hiking boots but offer more support than a trail runner type shoe. The uppers are a mixture of nubuck leather and some kind of synthetic materiel listed as mesh in the specifications. The boots feature a GORE-TEX membrane for wet conditions. Of course with the top of the boots at only 5.5 inches high, I will still need to be careful not to get water over the tops of the boots. To read the rest of the review click here.
