Match the fall colors outside! Check out a sneak peak of our brand new Fall Colors Collection, available on October 1, exclusively on Wolverine.com. As a state with over 50% tree coverage [top-10 in the USA], our home state of Michigan is the quintessential state to experience fall. The Wolverine Fall Colors Collection is inspired by those trees in our home state and the warm colors they bring to the landscape this time each year.
The Fall Colors Collection features three Original 1000 Mile boots; the Maple, the Chestnut, and the Oak. The limited edition boots are handcrafted in Michigan using time-tested methods and a selection of premium materials. The details in each design offer subtle nods to the fall season, from a textured and veined CF Stead Cognac Rambler leather, to an ultra soft Horween Oak La Salle leather.
“This collection brings together the natural textures and colors that are introduced when the fall season hits,” said Carrie Hill, Wolverine Senior Design Manager. “We were heavily influenced by the hues surrounding us in Michigan, the quintessential state to be in when you want to be exposed to Mother Nature’s warm palette. We selected a rugged Horween leather that mimicked a leaf-like textured surface, as well as burnt-orange hues that carry a red-cast reflecting peak colors in fall.”
All the boots in the collection are made with Goodyear Welt construction, which allows the boots to be resoled for years of wear, and are handcrafted with impeccable attention to detail in Big Rapids, Michigan. First launched in 1914, the Original 1000 Mile Boot is a timeless, century-old pattern is meticulously recreated for today.
