More Shots of the Wolverine 744s

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.
