Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots – An American Classic

Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots

Researchers estimate that the average person will walk about 75,000 miles in his/her lifetime. To put this into context, that’s the equivalent of three trips around the globe! So footwear that looks good and performs well is an important tool for everyone, especially when it comes to outdoor work.

Wolverine’s 1000 Mile boots won’t disappoint, in large part, thanks to the sweeping mission objectives underpinning their construction: “Comfort”; “Purpose”; and “Endurance.” Simply put, these boots are handsome, sporting a classic look built on century-old design patterns. No doubt, the quality reflects the craftsmanship.

Indeed, the name itself isn’t just a clever moniker, but rather, a testament to Wolverine’s confidence in their product (a long-running, tacit assurance that workers will get 1,000 miles of wear out of them). Introduced back in the 1910s, these robust kicks quickly became consumer favorites, earning a reputation for their durability.

What’s more, they’re still handmade in the U.S.A. The boots use premium leather and feature Vibram’s proprietary rubber-foam outsoles for added traction and durability. Goodyear welt construction provides greater flexibility and allows the boots to be resoled to extend the mileage. We find this a welcome change from today’s sea of “throw-away” products.

Since there are no safety-toe options, 1000 Miles are best suited for homeowners and professionals who divide their time between the office and jobsite visits.
