When it comes to the Wolverine 1000 Mile Original Sneakers, the difference is in the details, in the best way possible.

See Now, Buy Now: The Wolverine BLVD Cap Toe Boots are the Best Boots to Wear Now — and Into Spring

Wolverine BLVD Cap Toe Boots

A durable-yet-dressy addition to the Wolverine line of stylish men’s boots.

Have you ever come across a pair of rugged leather boots that seem to fit in with your lifestyle so well, you’ve got to have ’em in your wardrobe and on your feet instantly? The Wolverine BLVD Cap Toe Boots could certainly be the next pair of boots to fill that void in your collection, and having tested them out myself since the launch of the Wolverine BLVD Collection, I wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment. Think of the Wolverine BLVD Collection as a more refined and yet no less versatile and rugged offering than Wolverine‘s main line, particularly the much-loved Wolverine 1000 Mile Collection. You also likely know and love Wolverine leather sneakers, so it should come as no shock that the brand can really do it all.

These durable leather boots are ever-so-slightly more dressy and more easily wearable with, say, wool trousers or classic chinos, yet there’s no denying they carry on the Wolverine pedigree quite handsomely. And here’s the thing about the Wolverine BLVD Cap Toe Boots: They’re the type of rugged yet easily wearable boots you can throw on now (with classic dark denim and a shawl cardigan) and keep wearing on into spring (when you should pair them with your favorite light wash denim and one of the best men’s T-shirts). Don’t believe me? You best try ’em out yourself. Oh, and here’s another kicker — among many that we’ll cover shortly — you can get free shipping on orders of $120 at Wolverine right now. Sounds pretty great, yes?

One of seven stylish colorways in which you can pick up the BLVD Cap Toe Boots from Wolverine.

The Wolverine BLVD Cap Toe Boots — priced quite nicely at $199 via Wolverine — carry on that same tradition and commitment to quality, starting with the fact that these timeless leather boots feature a relatively sleek profile and hand-burnished leather. These Wolverine men’s boots also feature a sheepskin lining for maximum comfort and just enough warmth on cold winter days — these boots won’t leave your feet out in the cold. The rubber outsole is toned-down and not overly bulky, yet still provides excellent grip on slippery streets. And the Wolverine BLVD Cap Toe Boots are also built with Goodyear welt construction, meaning they can be resoled after plenty of wear. Throw in the fact that seven leather colorways are up for grabs, and you just might want to get more than one pair (I personally love the Tan option shown here). Wear ’em with slim blue jeans and a refined winter topcoat for outdoor dining or a safe seasonal road trip, then keep the Wolverine BLVD Cap Toe Boots handy come spring — you won’t regret it.

Style Pick of the Week: Wolverine 1000 Mile Faribault Boots

Wolverine 1000 Mile Faribault Boots

Some of the coolest leather boots you’re going to find this season.

Thanks, folks, for joining us to start your Saturday with today’s Style Pick of the Week. We’re continuing to talk about the best gear for fall here on the blog, and in this case, the best men’s boots to buy right now. What’s even better than that is the fact that, well, these rugged leather boots come from a heritage footwear brand you know, love and trust (or at least, I hope that’s the case).

Wolverine has been a tried-and-true brand for me over the years (seriously, check out my 2013 Wolverine product review on this very blog!), so it’s with great pleasure that I’ve been able to test out the Wolverine 1000 Mile Faribault Boots. They’re some of the best new men’s boots I’ve tried this season — if you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m always testing ’em out — and they’ve got the right pedigree and style potential to carry you through the rest of November and through on into winter. They’re also built on the brand’s workman-like Axel boot design. With all that being said, dig in with me, find out and get ready to pick up your new favorite boots, because they assuredly take the cake.

Faribault Woolen Mills has long been known for making some of the strongest, toughest woolen goods on the planet, starting with 1890s military blankets for U.S. soldiers, so it’s only fitting that Wolverine (based in my home state of Michigan!) would team up with such a lauded heritage brand. The specs on these classic leather boots really are something else (more on that in a moment, though).

Rugged details in a rugged pair of boots from Wolverine and Faribault.

Naturally, these wouldn’t be a pair of rugged Wolverine boots without the right construction, and in this case, that means an incredibly tough Vibram lug outsole and the classic 1000 Mile boot design, for starters. And yet, the Wolverine 1000 Mile Faribault Boots go the extra mile (pun intended), using fabrics originally made for U.S. Army blankets (in the case of the Green fabric) or U.S. Navy blankets (as with the grey fabric on the black-and-grey version). Either way, these boots are rugged, handsome, refined and versatile all the same. Agreeable pairings are plentiful with rugged leather boots such as these, from tan chinos, a white Oxford shirt and a blue denim jacket to slim black jeans and your favorite henley on a casual winter morning. Give the Wolverine 1000 Mile Faribault Boots, and find out what all the hype is about.

Style Pick of the Week: Wolverine Original 1000 Mile Boots

A classic in any season — especially fall.

Folks, let’s dive on into another Style Pick of the Week. More specifically, let’s talk rugged fall boots — as in the standout Wolverine Original 1000 Mile Boots. They’re investment-worthy and wish list-worthy, to say the least. Surely, if you’re a #menswear fan and have kept up with the industry, then you’ll recognize the durable, classic and resurgent style of the Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot. They were a trendy favorite in the mid-2000s as workwear and made-in-America goods surged back into play, but here’s the catch — Wolverine has made these boots a modern-day classic. Yes, the handsome, rugged and timeless silhouette of the Wolverine Original 1000 Mile Boot is just as relevant today. And what better season than fall to break out a pair of classic leather boots, after all? Wolverine has come up in the past on The Style Guide, specifically when talking the best boots for fall. Why not get ready for the season with the real deal, the Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot? Ehh? Yessir, Wolverine has nearly outdone themselves once again with this easily wearable, ridiculously well-crafted silhouette — and again, the time is just right to pick up the 1000 Mile Boots, my friends. And if I were you, I’d wear them to your next tailgate, on a bar crawl or to the office when paired up with a stylish fall blazer. They’re that good.

A tough silhouette that’s not too bulky — wearable with jeans or wool trousers in equal measure.

Like other Style Guide favorites — including the Original Chippewa Service Boots — this pair of 1000 Mile Boots is built to last right here in America. Wolverine uses uncompromising standards in crafting boots that can work with every single one of your fall menswear essentials, from rugged dark blue denim and a light blue denim shirt to faded black denim and a slim striped henley — and that’s only the beginning. The thing with the Wolverine Original 1000 Mile Boots  is that they’re only going to get better the more you wear them. Heck, the pattern of the boots itself is recreated from 1914, when the original 1000 Mile Boots  launched. And the leather?  It comes from Horween, perhaps the country’s foremost leather crafters. Throw in well-considered details like flat waxed laces and a leather outsole, and you’ve got a stunning pair of boots that can certainly last … beyond a thousand miles. See what I did there? At any rate, the craftsmanship and rugged appeal of the 1000 Mile Boots keeps going and going. OK, we’re done now. Thanks for reading!

Will the Wolverine Original 1000 Mile Boots be making their way into your footwear rotation this fall? How would you style the 1000 Mile Boots?
