WOLVERINE Women's Footwear No. 1883, Wolverine 1000 Mile & by Samantha Pleet 1000 Mile Fall 2014

MAE Ankle Bootie-No. 1883 collection. Love this mix of suede and woolen upper…cushioned footbed, rubber outsole and block heel 1.5"- make these durable and easy to spend the day upright, on. In black tan and grey (pictured).

Men's workbooks may be Wolverine's original claim to fame-but for us, the standouts of the Fall 2014 preview =the women's lifestyle collections-No. 1883 (priced under $200), and the premium group=Wolverine 1000 Mile.

ELOISE: Ankle Bootie-No. 1883---waxy suede upper-pictured in tan…cushioned footbed, rubber outsole-block heel 1.5"---girlish take on a chukka...
All boots, ankle booties and shoes are feminine-even the lace-ups modeled on hiker styles and men's classic kicks-with a will be in demand  broadening of the No. 1883 offerings for women---and a few winning Wolverine 1000 Mile carry-overs from last season in more colors---plus, few new silhouettes.

ARDIE: Boot- No. 1883-pull-on (black and taupe-and pictured-tan)-can wear with jeans or a flirty skirt---suede and nubuck leather upper, rubber outsole
Wear the collar up or down-the MABEL boot -No. 1883-comes in a rich eggplant color that's a deep neutral tone for Fall 2014. Full grain leather upper, cushioned footbed, rubber outsole-and a heel height of 1" make these city and country friendly. Really great.

LAVERNE: Lace-Up Boot-No 1883-Full grin leather upper-slim hiker style…cushioned footbed and rubber outsole, 1" heel...

MAJORIE: Pull-on boot-No 1883 full grain leather upper with hints of motorcycle -with two adjustable side buckles. Cushioned footbed, rubber outsole…1" heel height.

MAIJA: 1000 Mile Buckle Boot-full grain leather upper, unlined with leather footbed-breathable. Pictured in mahogany-also in black

Rich leathers, leather welts, and stitch details that are prevalent on luxury labels-all here in the Wolverine 1000 Mile collection for women. These updated classic looks are inspired by equestrian and military designs…with narrower profiles that are decidedly for the gals.  Beautifully made…!
Rubber/leather outsole and rubber heel-hallmarks of a well made boot.

one of our fav styles for cooler temps-ELSIE: Lace-Up Riding boot we'd walk in…full grian leather upper, unlined w/ a leather footbed…leather welt, rubber/leather outsole like the above  Maija-both with 1" heel heights. Also in black.

VILLAGE: Lace-up ankle bootie…equestrian braid detail…available in full grain leather or suede…leather lined and footbed, rubber/leather outsole+rubber heel.

Our favorite booties from the Wolverine 1000 Mile collection are fashioned by the talented Samantha Pleet---who has previously done the design honors for this shoe company.

Feminine and spot-on modern booties with Wolverine heritage in the mix- are highlights for Fall 2014.

We love the warm autumnal tones---including olive green/brown that matches up with the basic neutral colors in any wardrobe. Including black---and a crisp winter white.

this PROVINCE lace boot hits at just the right spot on legs to flatter---and give a long lean look. Full grain leather or suede upper…the red version is muted enough to be versatile…2.5" heel just right.

Taking a look that is a men's classic-add a 2" inch stacked heel-slim it down-ARC: Twin Gore Chelsea Boot----full grain leather or suede upper, leather lining, leather footbed, rubber/leather outsole and rubber outsole…nice.

A two tone winner-straight out of the 19th century-BONNY boot is a carry over, available now $320- but the color options for Fall include the sharp looking - Brown/Green combo. Basically a pull on with adjustable top buckle closure.the top curves add a feminine grace ---not blocky cut-so elongates the legs…

BONNY boot in black/grey suede on the right-new for Fall 2014 (Aug. 1st delivery) will probably sell the best…imo.
