Wolverine and Rawlings, the manufacturer of Major League Baseball equipment, released its collaborative limited-edition 1000 Mile Boot. Inspired by baseball, the Grand Slam Boot is crafted from the same 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. 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,” said Lauren King, senior director of marketing at Wolverine. “We’re honored to give passionate baseball fans the ability to bring a piece of the game with them every step they take.”

The lace-up boot reimagines Wolverine’s 1000 Mile Boot with a twist. Each pair features:

  • Custom Rawlings baseball bat wood in the heel stack “offers the love of the game in every step
  • The tongue has the same Rawlings logo tag found in its baseball gloves
  • Handcrafted from the “Heart of the Hide” baseball glove leather from Chicago’s Horween Leather Co.
  • Classic White Vibram rubber outsoles from Pennsylvania

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