Heritage is in the DNA of Saucony Originals. Wolverine celebrates its heritage with the Wolverine 1000 Mile Collection of archival patterns, premium materials and quality craftsmanship. Crafted in respect to the Original 1000 Mile boot that Wolverine first introduced in 1914, this Shadow Original delivers durability, comfort and style. On September 16, Saucony Originals and Wolverine will roll out a premium Shadow Original.
The limited edition collaboration combines the elegance and details of the Original Wolverine 1000 Mile boot with the classic Shadow O pattern. The durable upper is a two-toned combination of havana brown and camel Horween leather, featuring maroon leather accents, antique copper eyelets, and contrast stitching. The addition of a cream white midsole and a signature Saucony Originals triangular rubber tread outsole in Wolverine maroon offers elements of contrast.
Founded in 1883, Wolverine released the first 1000 Mile boot in 1914 and soon revolutionized the history of shoe making. Utilizing a secret tanning method to create shell horsehide that was soft, flexible and durable, the shoe was advertised as “comfortable and durable enough to give you 1000 miles of wear.” Shifting the focus for quality, craftsmanship, durability and comfort in footwear, the Wolverine 1000 Mile boot changed the standard forever. Today, Wolverine celebrates this heritage of shoe making with a collection of archival-inspired patterns crafted with meticulous attention to detail, premium materials and quality craftsmanship, including the Original 1000 Mile boot.
Saucony, founded in 1898 – two years after the first Olympic marathon, and one year after the first Boston Marathon – has running in its blood. The Saucony Originals line celebrates some of its most iconic styles by reintroducing them with fresh materials and colorways.
The Saucony Originals x Wolverine Shadow Original will be a limited release on September 16, available on wolverine.com and saucony.com, and select retailers including the Wolverine Company Store (254 Elizabeth Street, NY).
