Old World Style with Wolverine 1000 Mile

July 31, 2013 BY OBI ANYANWU


Since 1883, Wolverine has been the most trusted boot maker for American workers. The durability and comfort of the boots made long days building railroads and skyscrapers much more bearable. In 1914, the creation of the 1000 Mile boot set not only a benchmark for the brand but also for the competition who were forced to find an equivalent to the iconic boot style. Today, Wolverine 1000 Mile boots are still the top choice for work and casual life thanks to their innovations in comfort that make a long day on your feet feel like a breeze. Menswear's workwear revival ushered Wolverine to the forefront in footwear once again proving that a tried and true design can last for centuries.

Wolverine looks to yesteryear for the 1000 Mile SS14 collection by using the same attention to detail and construction as the original 1000 Mile boot. Wolverine maintains the comfort, durability, function, and style in their collection of 100% leather footwear. The brand is not only going retro in production, they're also looking to past designs, paralleling the trends of classic and dressy shoes from the early 20th century. The collection includes a number of Great Gatsby style oxfords that cater to men that seek top quality footwear to compliment their suiting.

The most notable piece in the collection is The Maxwell. The style is a sleek brogue with a Horween leather upper, Goodyear Welt construction, and a Vibram rubber outsole. The shoe is built like a Wolverine boot - built to last for years to come.

Wolverine 1000 Mile will show their SS14 collection at Capsule Vegas in August.
