Wolverine 1000 mile
G.A. Krause founded his footwear company over 125 years ago, inspierd by men who wanted quality-made products but also demanded comfort and craftsmanship. It would soon revolutionize the industry. Paying attention to the smallest details, utilizing new materials and employing fine craftsmen, the Wolverine brand was born.
Crafted with the same attention to detail found in the original, Wolverine’s 1,000 Mile Boot is the cornerstone of the collection. Made in America and featuring top quality Horween Chromexcel® Leather, a stacked leather outsole and classic welt construction, the new 1,000 Mile Boot has been meticulously designed to replicate the original’s aesthetic.
The first of its kind, the original Wolverine 1000 Mile Shoe was created to provide durability and comfort. The shoes were constructed from shell-horsehide leather with a design that would become a signature look for Wolverine. Advertised as comfortable enough to "give you 1,000 miles of wear," the shoe became a must-have item for men of the 20th century.
