The combination of Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon Whiskey and Wolverine 1000-Mile boots easily qualifies as a sign of fall. These limited-edition boots are a collaboration between the two brands meant to celebrate the American worker, and they’re certainly brands that evoke quality and American heritage. The boots aren’t just a whiskey color, they actually make use of American white oak barrels in which Old Rip Van Winkle bourbon ages for over ten years. The uppers are made with Chicago-sourced Horween Cavalier Squash leather with a double stitched cap toe for flair and tradition. Each pair comes with a hand-numbered textile tag and Old Rip Van Winkle-style packaging. The sale if the boots benefit American workers with 100% of the revenue going to the mikeroweWORKS scholarship foundation.
