Wolverine, the 139-year-old boot and clothing company, and Rawlings, the Official Baseball Glove of Major League Baseball, have launched their second limited-edition 1000 Mile Wolverine Boot. This premium style features handcrafted details and the unrivaled quality of Horween leather, the same leather that is used in Rawlings Heart of the Hide baseball gloves. This high-top boot makes its debut in a rich navy hue with red and white stitching as a nod to America’s favorite pastime.
“For our second year working with the Rawlings team, we wanted to capture the essence of baseball in our design,” said Lauren King, Director of Brand Marketing at Wolverine. “We’re excited to celebrate the sport by sharing this limited-edition 1000 Mile Boot that pulls through the classic details of baseball and evokes the nostalgia of this great American tradition.”
First introduced in 1914, the Wolverine 1000 Mile is America’s original work boot. This new Rawlings edition of the Wolverine 1000 Mile boot reimagines the tried-and-true style with a twist on an American classic that honors lifelong memories of the quintessential American pastime. The boots are designed in Michigan and handcrafted in Arkansas to support American workers and manufacturing. Each boot is complete with all the traditional 1000 Mile features and includes:
- A limited-edition sherry-color Rawlings embroidered patch on the tongue
- American-made red leather heel stacks
- White Vibram® rubber outsoles
- A custom baseball glove leather fob debossed with the Wolverine 1000 Mile and Rawlings logos
“Rawlings and Wolverine are both heritage brands known for their quality and authentic materials making this a natural fit for a collaboration,” said Eric Reinsfelder, Vice President, Rawlings Brand and Sports Marketing. “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Wolverine and create exceptional footwear inspired by both brands’ rich histories.”
