The Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot is exactly the sort of boot our grandfathers wore while they built the country, drank whiskey and didn’t watch reality television. In fact 2014 is the 100 year anniversary of the introduction of the original Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot – the almost identical forefather to the model you see pictured here.
Each 1000 Mile Boot is made from 100% Horween Chromexcel® Leather, they have a stacked leather Welt sole and they’ll last longer than the half-life of most radioactive isotopes.
