Only 1,000 pair were made. Wingtip has 251 pair coming, more than any other store in the U.S. Based on the runaway success of the first limited edition Cordovan boot that Wolverine introduced --the 721-- the classic chocolate brown 744 should sell out even faster. Right now, every size is in-stock and ready to ship within 1 business day.
The rich brown leather is classified by Horween as "Cordovan No. 449," and has been cut into a perforated cap toe boot. Stitching on the ankles lends an aggressive look, and the leather-soled boots are branded with Wolverine's iconic "1000 Mile" signature.
Each pair are numbered by hand, include a certificate of authenticity, basswood shoetrees and shoe bags.
Wolverine's 1,000 Mile Boots almost always run at least one-half size big. Order one half size smaller than your typical dress shoe size (e.g. order a 9 if you usually wear a 9.5).
Wolverine's boots have been featured in Esquire, GQ, US Weekly, and on A Continuous Lean. You can also check out a series of videos on the firm by clicking here.
