Before I started On The Fly, if there was one thing my clothing or cigar salespeople knew about me, it’s that I’m a sucker for anything that’s "Limited Edition". If I can own some boots that only 999 other people on the planet can also own, well sign me up. "Oh, they’re only $900? I’ll take two pair!" So you can imagine my excitement when Wolverine announced a new, limited edition boot they will be releasing this Fall that will be sold through a very select group of retailers…
This Fall, they will be releasing a shell cordovan boot under the imprint 721LTD (in a nod to the style number of the original 1000 Mile Boot). One thousand of them will be made, and we plan on taking our fair share on behalf of our customers.
To generate some enthusiasm around the launch, Wolverine is releasing a series of short videos (3-4 minutes) that chronicle the making of the boots. The first in the series is about Horween Leather Tannery who is producing the shell cordovan for the boot (and who produces the leather for the current 1000 Mile Boots). Enjoy.
