Tonight | Drinks and American Made Boots

The Wolverine 1000 Mile collection officially launches tonight at the Scoop store in the Meatpacking district. Everyone is welcome to stop by for a drink and check out the new 1000 Mile Boots (the tasty numbers pictured below). I’ll be there all evening (because I’m working with Wolverine), so be sure to introduce yourself. It is always good to meet everyone, even the ones that talk smack all the time! ha

    Michael Williams on July 9, 2009 4:32 PM:

    You can buy them from Scoop right now, come by or call them.

    I hate to ask how much…

    Chris on July 9, 2009 5:27 PM:

    Aesthetically perfect. Looking forward to seeing these USA made beauties in person.

    Michael Williams on July 9, 2009 5:30 PM:

    $325 retail…

    davidH on July 9, 2009 5:34 PM:

    325 is actually a reasonable price

    Very nice, I’ve had my eye on these. Nice pics.

    JB on July 10, 2009 8:24 AM:

    Oh man those look sweet as candy.

    Tintin on July 10, 2009 10:05 AM:

    Jethro Bodine had a pair just like ’em.

    Kevin on July 10, 2009 10:07 AM:

    Those are what I have been looking for.
    Nice pics too, thanks.

    Jim on July 10, 2009 11:45 AM:

    more pictures!

    JP on July 10, 2009 11:55 AM:

    I might have to give those a try.

    Jeff on July 10, 2009 5:12 PM:

    They look fantastic, although I am disappointed to see the top three optional “eyelets” (not exactly sure what they are called).

    They are positively awful and will faithfully tear up laces like there is no tomorrow.

    It takes seconds to throw a lace through a hole so I don’t know why companies insist on using them.

    Pitboss12 on July 10, 2009 10:23 PM:

    Interesting. Do they come with the creases or is that just a sample that’s been around?

    Michael Williams on July 10, 2009 11:22 PM:

    They come unworn, the pair pictured are mine and I had been wearing them for a day, hence the creases. I have to say they are wearing amazingly…


    DC on July 11, 2009 12:58 AM:

    Jeff, the top hooks are called speed laces and it makes these a much better, well thought out boot. It is not for the purpose of not threading the eyelet, but for the purpose of not untying your shoes. You simply unhook the laces without untying them. Try it! Your laces will stay intact – promise.

    robbie on July 11, 2009 12:22 PM:

    I really like these boots.

    It is still quite a toss up for me personally between these and gentleman travelers however.

    Jerry on July 11, 2009 1:25 PM:

    I’ve got the Gentleman Trqvelers in the black cherry (amazing looking boot). But I will admit…the break-in period is intense. Now they are perfect, but the leather is so strong and stiff in the beginning it does take awhile to break them in. New to ACL. Love it.

    Josh on July 11, 2009 6:05 PM:

    Any word on the rest of the 1000 mile collection making it to production?

    These are great looking but the rest of the collection, in my eyes, stands head and shoulders above these aesthetically. I want all three Garrison boots at the very least.

    Kit on July 12, 2009 10:45 AM:

    Creases happen after one day? Can you shed some light on what kind of leather they use? Is the bottom of the shoe all wood, or wood/rubber? Thanks

    DC on July 12, 2009 2:08 PM:

    Kit, The bottoms are LEATHER with a rubber heal. Wood soles only on clogs.

    When I get these I will have my cobbler put a rubber “commando” sole in the front for winter conditions. I still think they will be a handsome shoe.

    Gavin D. on July 13, 2009 6:00 PM:

    are these available in L.A. or Vancouver, Canada?

    Awesome boots….

    Josh on July 14, 2009 11:55 PM:

    Apparently Wolverine thinks it’s long time retailers like Crane’s aren’t good enough to carry this “heritage” line.

    They just lost my business.

    Michael Williams on July 14, 2009 11:57 PM:

    They are just keeping the distribution separate. Get a grip!


    DC on July 15, 2009 7:50 AM:

    yeah josh. this is still a fashion boot line and should be sold in fashion driven stores. there are also special edition filson products that would not be distibuted through crane’s. are you going to stop buying from them too?

    Josh on July 15, 2009 9:13 PM:

    If Filson took it upon themselves to yank a product line in the manner Wolverine did with Crane’s (despite Crane’s having more info and line of sight about the boots then all of the bloggers and web outlets Wolverine is pumping these boots to combined) then yes I probably would.

    God forbid real world B&M stores outside the hipster community see these things. Remind me again why Red Wing dominates this market?
