To celebrate the launch of the new 1000 Mile 744 LTD limited-run boot, Wolverine issued an exclusive, special edition wallet. I was lucky enough to get my hands on one.
The wallet is a simple affair, essentially two rectangular slices of Horween "Essex" leather impeccably stitched together on three sides forming a pocket. Stamped with the marque of the brand, the piece offers just enough space to stash a couple cards and a few bills. Minimalist, yet classic, it's perfectly suited to the design ethos of the entire 1000 Mile line.
The pros: It's attractive, made in the USA and totally balla'.
(Plus, it smells nice. -ed.)
The cons: I didn't get a pair off 744's out of the deal.
THE 1000 MILE 744 LTD WALLET VERDICT:
While it's not an everyday carry, the 744 LTD wallet is my new go-to when I want to travel light and look good.
(None of which really matters, because you can't buy the wallet anyway. That said, you can grab the 744 LTD boots at any of the fine retailers listed here, which is almost as good. Just act fast, Wolverine only made 1000 of them. -ed.)
Special thanks to Wolverine 1000 Mile for providing us with this great example of American craftsmanship.
