This coming fall the Wolverine 1000 Mile collection is unveiling a limited edition boot under the imprint 721LTD (named as a nod to the original 1000 Mile boot reference number). To celebrate the release we commissioned a short film series to document the process of creating the 721LTD boots. Our first film profiles America's finest tannery, Horween leather in Chicago. Horween takes us through the process of making the shell cordovan that will be supplied to the 721LTD boots. To learn more about 721LTD, stay tuned for the rest of the series.

 Wolverine, the esteemed work boot manufacture founded in 1883, will be releasing the 721LTD as part of their 1000 Mile collection in mid-October. The collection, comprised of archival and reinterpreted classics, started with the re-issue of the 1000 Mile Boot (purported to last the wearer 1000 walking miles) and has been growing in popularity ever since. This new addition, made in the USA of Horween Shell cordovan, is limited to several hundred pairs and sports a price tag significantly higher than the baseline model ($725) but you get what you pay for. Throughout its history the Rockford, Michigan based company has been known for the durability of their products and the 721LTD looks to be no different.
