Last night, we had the opportunity to stop in at New York’s finest shoe shop, Leffot, and see the Wolverine 1000 Mile 721 LTD boot in the flesh. I also got the chance to speak with some of the folks behind Wolverine and when I say they know what they’re doing, I mean it. They pulled out some inspiration from their archives and delivered a timeless boot in the 721 LTD. The Horween color 8-shell cordovan leather is really something else.
The shaft and tongue are unlined shell, which is great because it’s softer and suppler around the ankle and instep. They’re surprisingly lightweight and flexible and offer great support under your feet. As with all cordovan boots the more you wear them the better they look.
Wolverine is only making 1,000 pairs of these and each are hand numbered and includes Basswood shoetrees and a certificate of authenticity.
