Wolverine has gone back into their vault and unearthed the punched cap toe for a limited run of 1000 boots. They are made from Horween’s famed shell cordovan, a layer of tissue just beneath a horse’s hide that is then tanned for a full six months. The leather is unbelievably resilient, and can last a lifetime if properly maintained. At our event last week, Neil Burns, of Wolverine, said of the material, “This stuff is going to outlast us all.” We later took a pair of the 744s on a sight-seeing tour around the Bank of Italy building, including one of our own vaults.
