For over 130 years, the Wolverine brand has been the sturdy sole that helped shape a nation.
«We are born of work. Hard work. The kind of work it takes to build the things that endure for generations.»
In the early 1910s the Wolverine tannery was able to develop a unique method of processing shell horsehide which made it soft and pliable, something no other tannery had been able to accomplish. A few years later, the company introduced the «1000 Mile Shoe», handcrafted with durable shell horsehide, and named because it was said to give you 1000 miles of wear.
Today Wolverine honors its heritage with a collection of boots and shoes inspired by archival patterns that are crafted with great attention to detail using the same construction methods as the original. The Wolverine 1000 Mile Collection embodies the pillars of Wolverine’s heritage — comfort, durability, function and style.
