Wolverine Looks to Battle the Covenant with Its Master Chief-Inspired Boots

Whether you’ve been playing it since the first-generation XBOX or simply can’t wait to watch the brand new TV adaptation, Microsoft’s exclusive Halo series is one of the most critically acclaimed in gaming history. It’s so popular that even shoemakers are channeling the Spartan army, as legendary boot brand Wolverine is collaborating with 343 Industries on the Master Chief Boot, and it’s just as cool as it sounds.

This new release’s backstory starts with the American brand’s Hellcat stompers, which garnered an immense response from the gaming community upon comparing their silhouette to a pair of intergalactic boots from Halo. Two years removed, it’s funny to imagine just how much that response meant. Avid fans of the series will appreciate the Master Chief Boot’s appropriate embellishments throughout, like a “117” on the left boot’s heel and a UNSC insignia.

But these aren’t just a video game-themed novelty — they’re a legit pair of Wolverine boots. The Master Chiefs are equipped with grippy rubber lug outsoles and Wolverine’s trademark UltraSpring ETPU midsole, resulting in lightweight responsiveness with every step. They are also dressed in army-green full-grain leather for an added touch of wearable luxury and in-game authenticity.

Some gamers will look you dead in the eye and claim that Master Chief sits among the pantheon of video game mascots like Mario and Sonic, and they would be undoubtedly right to do so, as collaborations as unique as this prove it with ease. Wolverine x Halo’s Master Chief Boot is limited to a befitting 117 pairs and will be available beginning March 29th for $225.

Purchase: $225
