Rockford, Michigan footwear company Wolverine has been making comfortable and durable boots since 1883. For a large portion of the last 129 years, they’ve been known for making work boots that are up to any task you can throw at them. Enter the updated 1000 Mile Collection, a foray into more stylish (yet still durable) types of footwear. The original 1000 Mile Collection was created 98 years ago with a focus on boots, and this updated line has been designed to replicate the look and feel of the original with a more contemporary style.
Choose from 5 collections, including the Gentry, The Gentleman, the Garrison, and The Women’s Collection to find the shoe that fits your needs. While Wolverine offers the traditional type of work boot here, you’ll also find wingtip oxfords, chukkas, and field boots – all with the classic, yet stylish look that this collection is known for. If you’re looking for shoes that’ll last, these can make it at least 15 to 20 years with the proper care. If for some reason they need to be repaired, you can take these to your local shoe repair shop and they’ll be able to return them to their former glory.
Shoes in the Wolverine 1000 Mile Collection start at $265, which isn’t bad for stylish, durable shoes that you’ll be wearing for years to come. You’ll find sizes to 14 in most of the shoes as well. Take a look at them for yourself at the Wolverine 1000 Mile website.
