Wolverine Boots, Shoes, & Apparel - Official Wolverine Online Store. Our Original 1000 Mile boot is the soul of who we are. First introduced in the 1910s, it was named because it offered 1000 miles of wear. Workers loved its soft, long-lasting shell horsehide leather. Today, we’re still handcrafting this American icon with the same methods. This our third century of making quality boots and we’re not done by a long shot.
