More than 125 years ago, Wolverine founder G.A. Krause built a company on a dream of creating finely crafted footwear. Now Wolverine is honoring its heritage by introducing a collection of boots and shoes inspired by Wolverine’s original designs.

Wolverine boots are a classic must-have for more than a century.
To outfit a collection inspired by its own heritage and dedication to craftsmanship, Wolverine has partnered with Horween® Leather Company, using premium leathers made from time-tested practices at the historic tannery.

This coming fall the Wolverine 1000 Mile collection is unveiling a limited edition boot under the imprint 721LTD (named as a nod to the original 1000 Mile boot reference number). To celebrate the release they commissioned a short film series to document the process of creating the 721LTD boots. The opening chapter takes you on a pilgrimage to Chicago to visit the Horween leather company , America’s finest tannery and supplier of shell cordovan to the 721LTD 1000 Mile boots.
