WOLVERINE 1883, Lifestyle, Outdoor, Work Fall 2015

Wolverine showed off some choice new looks for the upcoming season-all contemporary priced footwear...which makes us think that this brand with its functional, rugged American heritage background---is set to appear on more stylish urban feet- as well as the usual- out in the woods and on work-sites.  
Some Highlights:

WOLVERINE 1000 MILE Rockford MI.+Outdoor/Work

Highlights from Men's+Women's F/W 2015 Footwear WOLVERINE 1000 MILES Rockford MI Collection Wolverine the company, part of the same named corporation...continues the tradition of offering made to last footwear for work-and life, indoors and outside.
Top tier--- are the Made in the USA offerings in the Wolverine 1000 Mile Rockford, MI  collection-using primo global and American sourced materials (Horween® leather,Vibram® rubber, Charles F. Stead suede)---and production methods including the easy to see- Goodyear Welt construction----for high quality durable footwear that "...wears like iron..."


  BIG TREND: Fall footwear-for men and women-more colors as workable wearable as the usual neutrals...but a bit brighter than black/brown/grey


OLIBERTÉ-Made in Africa Footwear/Accessories-M/W 2015


It is interesting/curious the hundreds of how to engage/entice millennial pitches---when imo- anyone with a heartbeat would support a well made product made by a company with a good world citizen mission statement...and in the case of the growing Oliberté...products of top notch distinctive footwear and haulers...crafted in Ethiopia- non-toxic methods- using mostly African sourced materials.

Point being-no need for hard sale here...and Fall/Winter 2015 selections we previewed continue the small label tradition of super-ness. The workmanship/materials REALLY stand out.


Vegetable dyed leathers have unique qualities---lovely almost faded in the sun tone----NICE!
