Wolverine 744 LTD Boot

In the wake of the popularity of the 721 LTD limited edition wingtip boot made from Color 8 Shell Cordovan, Wolverine has introduced a new limited edition cordovan boot, the 744 LTD.

The boot is made on the same last as its predecessor. The shape and fit are similar to the 721 LTD, but features a perforated captoe made in Horween shell No. 449 a rich dark brown cordovan. The shaft and tongue are unlined shell, which is great because it’s softer and suppler around the ankle and instep. They’re surprisingly lightweight and flexible and provide excellent support under your feet.

As with all cordovan boots the more you wear them the better they look. This is an elegant work boot, as appropriate with a sport coat as it is on the job site.

There will only be 1,000 pairs made for worldwide distribution, and while that sounds like a lot, these boots are sure to sell out. Each hand-numbered pair comes with a certificate of authenticity, basswood shoetrees and shoe bags.

Wolverine Northman Boot

As the name implies the Wolverine Northman boots are for serious winter weather. The boots are made in Big Rapids, MI to military specifications. I lived in MI and trust me they know a thing or two about winter.

These rugged cowhide boots are made with Gore-Tax® breathable and waterproof membrane, which allows perspiration to escape but does not let water in. In addition a layer of Thinsulate® will keep your dogs warm well below freezing. Surprising light and comfortable, your feet will have no problem standing for extended periods even while ice fishing.

No you probably won’t wear these to the office but when push comes to shove and the winter settles in you’ll be dry & warm in a pair of Northman.

Wolverine’s 1000 Mile Boots for Women

Wolverine’s 1,000 mile boots for women are super cute. They’re kind of like bad boy boots but for girls a little bit tomboy, a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll.

Crafted with the same attention to detail found in the men’s original and modified for a women’s last, Wolverine’s 1000 Mile Boot is the cornerstone of the collection.

Made in America and featuring top quality Horween Chromexcel leather, a stacked leather outsole and classic welt construction, the 1000 Mile Boot has been meticulously designed to replicate the original’s aesthetic.

Wearing these with jeans or cargo pants is a no brainer but they also look great with a skirt or dress, there’s something about the mix of hard boots and soft fabric that’s just so chic.
