In time for Father's Day, Wolverine, a 141-year-old boot and clothing company, and Rawlings, a global brand and manufacturer of premium Major League Baseball equipment, are stepping up to the plate with a limited-edition 1000 Mile Boot. Inspired by America’s favorite pastime, the Grand Slam Boot is crafted from the same quality premium Horween leather used in Rawlings Heart of the Hide baseball gloves and features a custom Rawlings wood bat layer in the heel stack.

“Our fourth launch with our friends at Rawlings is undoubtedly our most special yet,” says Lauren King, senior director, marketing, Wolverine. “What started as a wild idea was meticulously brought to life with the innovative thinking and production capabilities of our Wolverine team and Rawlings partners. We’re honored to give passionate baseball fans the ability to bring a piece of the game with them every step they take.”

Crafted for baseball fans, the boot embodies the essence of the sport by reimagining the style of Wolverine's luxury 1000 Mile Boot with a classic American twist. These limited-edition Rawlings x 1000 Mile Boot celebrates memories made at the ballpark. Each pair features all the traditional 1000 Mile quality and includes:

  • A Grand Slam Heel Stack – Custom Rawlings baseball bat wood in the heel stack

  • Tagged Out – Tongue is stitched with the same Rawlings logo tag found on gloves

  • Legendary Leather – Handcrafted from the Heart of the Hide Baseball Glove Leather from Chicago’s famed Horween Leather Co.

  • Classic White Vibram rubber outsoles from Pennsylvania

“Our latest collaboration with Wolverine is a true homerun,” says Eric Reinsfelder, vice president, Rawlings Brand and Sports Marketing. “Rawlings and Wolverine’s mutual dedication to high-quality craftsmanship has made this partnership a natural fit. Over our four years of collaboration, we’ve crafted exceptional footwear, drawing inspiration from the rich American history that defines both of our brands.”
