Filson and Wolverine have teamed up on to form a powerhouse of classic American heritage brands, the result of which is this two-boot capsule for Fall 2012. Both brands have shared a common interest in high-quality, outdoor-ready footwear and apparel for well over a century each, respectively. The range includes the 6-inch Emerson boot and the 8-inch Rowan boot, both of which make use of American-made Horween leather for uppers further accentuated with Filson fabrics.
Leffot and Wolverine have made a joint effort to create a new shoe for a great cause. The limited edition Wolverine 721 LTD Boots are being auctioned off for benefit relief for orphans in Japan who still need help post-tsunami. Features Horween Leather with an archival pattern which makes these notable boots shine in comparison to most luxury footwear. Bids for the #1 pair, a mens’s size 10D in Shell Cordovan No.8 colour, will be accepted from today until the 22nd.
Only 1,000 pairs are available. Bid before it’s too late.
Wolverine is facing off with the elements this Fall/Winter with a new shoe. The 1000 Mile boots, which are homegrown in the U.S.A are getting an upgrade before the cold sets in. Featuring the warmest name we’ve ever heard, Horween “inferno” leather and a stacked leather outsole. You won’t burn your little booties in these, but they’ll definately keep you warm and crisp when the snow starts to fall.
Footwear company Wolverine is aptly named, creating rugged footwear for work, hiking and even hunting. Their 1883 collection distills this aesthetic into a heritage-inspired line of 11 styles fit for city-wear. The Mayall boot combines a soft leather upper and woven lining with a foam-cushioned sole and rubber grips for superior stability and comfort no matter where you might find yourself this fall.
Wolverine have stunned us with this incredibly dapper chukka. Called the ‘Beck’, this desert boot features oil resistant Charles stead suede uppers, canvas and foam footbed and hand stitched construction. With leather laces and a conservative wedge sole, this boot has a beautiful retro look. And by adding a strip of darker leather around the ankle and by contouring the toe, Wolverine gives the Beck and almost south western feel. Available online now.

Though it’s hot outside for many, we mustn’t forget that some of us are still suffering the cold. For example, one friend of the staff, has returned to his parent’s home in Newfoundland for the summer. Suffering temperatures that drop to -4 at night, he’s glad to have his Burton boots by Wolverine with him.
Made in the military style, with full-grain black leather and sturdy construction, these boots were made for survival and any suffering through the cold at the same time that we’re roasting the heat. Get your own pair at Blackbird.
Wolverine gives us a look in to one one of the shoes from its 1883 collection’; the Preston. Dazzling skill and craftsmanship actualize this very cool looking derby, using full grain leather to construct the upper and a dark red mid sole that will catch the attention of any on looking shoe gazers.
