Wolverine’s Joint Effort with Rawlings Pays Homage to America’s Pastime

Wolverine’s endless line of long-lasting boots makes it one of the most popular brands in the space, especially when it comes to options crafted in the U.S. As far as American brands are concerned, Rawlings is another iconic name, as it’s been manufacturing sporting goods for over a century. Today, these two heritage brands join forces to put forth an exclusive pair of boots inspired by America’s pastime.

The Michigan-based shoemaker’s iconic 1000 Mile Boot is one of its most popular silhouettes, and this sleek makeover makes it all the more coveted. The handcrafted stomper is made from the same brand of Horween leather from Chicago that Rawlings uses to make its iconic Heart of the Hide baseball gloves, going to show that the new release is a genuine home run. As an added touch, the boot’s tongue is embellished with the same sherry-colored Rawlings logo that appears on the unmistakable mitts.

It’s safe to say that these brands executed the joint effort with flying colors, as the Americana-exuding take on the 1000 Mile arrives in a chic shade of blue and is touched up with red-and-white stitching to mirror an actual baseball. For comfort’s sake, the boot sits on a clean, white Vibram rubber outsole, which is rounded out with durable Goodyear welt construction. The boots are then finished off with a custom red leather heel stack from Williamsport, Pennsylvania, and a debossed fob acknowledging the collab.

Finally, in a show of support for the American workforce, these boots are handcrafted in Arkansas. The Wolverine 1000 Mile x Rawlings Americana Boot is available today on Wolverine’s online store for $415.
