Brand Spotlight - Wolverine

Today we take a brief look at one of our more recent brands, heritage boot brand Wolverine
The brand was founded by G.A. Krause who dreamed of owning a shoe company and tannery that employed his values of quality craftsmanship and incessant innovation. In 1883, he founded a small company with a handful of employees. By 1901, Krause organized the Rogue River Electric Light and Power Company to bring power to Rockford, Michigan, allowing him and his sons to build and operate a shoe factory. By 1903, they were making 300 pairs of shoes a day. Krause was a true revolutionary, later selling shares of the company to its own employees, becoming one of the nation's first profit sharing plans. In 1921, flush with success, the company took the name Wolverine Shoe and Tanning Corporation. Wolverine’s headquarters still remain in Rockford, Michigan today. Today Wolverine honors its heritage with a collection of boots and shoes inspired by archival patterns that are crafted with great attention to detail using the same construction methods as the original. The Wolverine 1000 Mile Collection embodies the pillars of Wolverine’s heritage — comfort, durability, function and style.
Here at Fat Buddha Store we will be stocking their signature 1000 Mile Boot. These shoes are made with a fine eye for detail and with the heritage construction methods used when the boot was first introduced in 1914. The 1000 Mile Boot from Wolverine is designed with timeless quality. Still made in America with horween chromexcel leather they feature a stacked leather ousole and classic welt construction.
