WOLVERINE INTRODUCES MODERN UPDATE TO THE 1000 MILE ORIGINAL BOOT
The 1000 Mile Original Sneaker inspired by the boot, originally launched in 1914
Rockford, Mich. (July 1, 2018)
The Wolverine 1000 Mile Original Sneaker is inspired by the timeless style of the Original 1000 Mile Boot with the lightweight comfort of cupsole construction and a Vibram® outsole.
The sneaker is handcrafted in the USA and uses soft, supple, full grain Tumbled Essex leather from the famous Horween tannery of Chicago, offering premium looks right out of the box.
It also features a full PU footbed to provide exceptional comfort surrounding the foot.
“Simply put, comfort is the new cool.
The Original 1000 Mile Sneaker adopts all of the design cues from the Original boot, while receiving a dose of a softer, sporty leather and cushioned insole,” says Carrie Hill, senior designer for Wolverine.
“This addition to the line gives the 1000 Mile Collection a modern update without compromising our Made in America values and craftsmanship.”
The Original Sneaker features everything you love about the Original 1000 Mile Boot but with an updated twist.
It comes in the classic brown and black, as well as a tan and navy, to meet the needs of everyone.
The inside is unlined for added comfort and reduced weight.
It also features an ultra-comfortable, leather-topped PU sock insert that is inspired by cushioning technologies found in performance footwear.
The Wolverine 1000 Mile Original Sneaker will be available on for pre-order on June 29, 2018 on wolverine.com.
