More than 130 years ago, Wolverine founder G.A. Krause built a company on a dream of creating finely crafted footwear using the best materials of the time. Inspired by men who wanted quality made products but also demanded comfort and craftsmanship, Krause began a footwear company that would soon revolutionize the industry. Paying attention to the smallest details, utilizing new materials and employing fine craftsmen, the Wolverine Brand was born.

The Original The first of its kind, the Wolverine 1000 Mile Shoe was crafted to provide the balance between classic design and function. The shoes were constructed from shell-horsehide leather with a look that would become a signature product for Wolverine. Advertised as comfortable enough to “give you 1000 miles of wear,” the shoe became a must have item for men of the 20th Century.

Established in Rockford, Michigan, Wolverine made the original boots that helped build the railroads, erect skyscrapers, and expand highways across this great country. A historic mile marker for the brand took place in 1914, when Wolverine introduced a footwear line called the 1000 Mile Boot®, setting the standard for durable footwear.

    G’Day,
    Those 1,000 mile boots might be ok, however in Australia we can buy locally made, the best boots in the world for the price you are asking for these boots.
    I have a pair of Australian Made R.M. Williams Stock Yard Boots I have worn for 5 days out of 7 for 30 years and they will go for another 30 years. These “RM Boots” have never been repaired, re-shod, or anything else done to them since new, BEAT THAT ! I will send you pictures if you wish

    Cookey.
