Wolverine started life supplying rugged outdoor footwear to the American construction industry, playing their part in U.S. history by manufacturing boots for workers involved in building roads and railways across the country.
From early beginnings in the 1880s, the company became the Wolverine Shoe and Tanning Corporation almost exactly 100 years ago, averaging 300 pairs of tough work boots every day. Today, they sell more than 37 million pairs of boots and shoes every year.
Wolverine Boots began manufacturing work footwear in Michigan, USA way back in 1883.
Originally known for supplying footwear to the construction industry, Wolverine are today held in high esteem for the major part they played in American history by making boots for workers building the railways, roads and later skyscrapers all over the country.
Since then, Wolverine have continued their commitment of constructing high quality walking shoes and boots using the latest new technology, and today are part of a worldwide company that includes Hush Puppies and Merrell.
