WingTip, On the Fly's member-only club in San Francisco, is hosting a launch party for Wolverine's limited edition 721LTD Horween Shell Cordovan 1,000 Mile Boot tonight from 5-8PM at 560 Sacramento Street (between Sansome & Montgomery).
In addition to Wolverine unveiling the boots, the event is catered; Russell's Rye Reserve will be hosting a rye tasting; and KeaLani from A Shine & Co. will be doing complimentary boot shines.
Wolverine, the American work boot manufacture founded in 1883, is releasing the 721LTD as part of its 1000 Mile collection (boots purported to last the wearer 1000 walking miles). The $725 721LTD is made in the USA of Horween color 8 shell cordovan and limited to 1,000 hand-numbered pairs that are packaged with basswood shoe trees and a certificate of authenticity. The shaft and tongue are unlined shell, which is softer and suppler around the ankle and instep.
Disclosure: I will be the man standing near the rye tasting station for much of the evening.
