Wolverine: Boots You Can Walk 1000 Miles In
Not everyone is willing to walk 500 miles, let alone another 500, just to end up at somebody’s door with sore feet and a pair of worn-out old boots.
But to be the man who walked a thousand miles without damaging your feet takes a high-quality set of footwear, and you can’t go wrong with a pair of Cap-Toe Boots from Wolverine.
In a collaboration that gives a toast to working with your hands, Wolverine is proudly proclaiming, “whether it’s a fine pair of boots or a fine bottle of bourbon, there’s something to be said for taking the time to do it right.”
1000 Mile and Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon join their heritage forces to deliver craftsmanship on a whole new scale. With a long-standing commitment to the labor of love for making the best shoes and delicious bourbons, this collaboration is 100-years in the making.
Believing that everything is better with age and in small batches, the limited-edition Old Rip Van Winkle cap-toe boots are crafted from premium whiskey-colored Horween Chromexcel leather with a double-needle-stitch cap toe design.
More bourbon influences are found in the custom cut bourbon barrel layered into the heel, finished with a clear coat to reveal all the grainy wooden details.
Celebrating the American worker’s legacy and spirit through the development of a special edition boot alongside Old Rip Van Winkle’s famed bourbon, the boots include a hand-numbered tag on the tongue similar to the bourbon bottles it copies.
Plus, with limited edition packaging with custom red bags for the shoes, these probably deserve a shelf unto their own.
Other decadent features include a classic leather outsole with a Vibram heel from Williamsport, Pennsylvania, flat waxed cotton laces from Landrum, South Carolina, and a time-tested Goodyear welt construction that is durable, flexible and allows the boot to be re-soled after years of wear. With all the proceeds going to benefit the mikeroweWORKS Worth Ethic scholarships, you can slip on a pair of these incredible cap-toe boots and feel good knowing your money is going to the right place.
Embodying the philosophy that they always make “fine bourbon” whether at a profit if they can, or a loss if they must, no matter what it is, “always fine bourbon.”
