Wolverine should be a familiar name for those who value sturdy craftsman-focused gear — not because of the comic book hero, but rather because they’re an American brand with over 135 years of experience making superb work boots. Their latest release, however, is even more special because the proceeds will actually benefit U.S. craftsmen.
Released in celebration of the upcoming Labor Day holiday, the aptly-named Journeyman boats a premium waterproof full-grain leather upper mated to a light PVC midsole, EPX footbed cushions, a Vibram outsole, a Goodyear Welt construction, and more. They can even be equipped with a Carbonmax toe for extra worksite protection. That means this footwear is built tough enough to withstand 10+ hour days and then some — a welcome prospect for hard-working blue-collar men and women everywhere. What’s even better is that 100% of the proceeds of the Iron Grey colorway will go toward the American College of the Building Arts (ACBA) in Charleston, SC through September 3rd. The Wolverine Journeyman is available now starting at $170.
