California based, yet Brooklyn inspired, BED|STU handcrafts the finest products in its footwear, belt and accessory collections.

Crafted with the same attention to detail found in the original first crafted in 1914, the Wolverine’s 1000 Mile Boot is the cornerstone of the collection. Made in America with classic Goodyear welt construction, the 1000 Mile Boot has been meticulously designed to replicate the original’s aesthetic and is hand crafted to last. The boots feature timeless pattern recreated from the first Wolverine 1000 Mile shoe introduced in 1914. Upper is made from premium leather from Horween Leather Company or suede from Charles F. Stead. Suede ages beautifully and gains character with wear and boots have classic leather outsole with a Vibram heel. These boots are definitely an all American Winter necessity.
You should’ve seen Hood Rubber in the early 20th century — they were huge, with the biggest vulcanized rubber factory in the world, contracts to supply our troops in WWII, and even ads drawn by Norman Rockwell. So it’s a blessing to all us boot obsessives that they’ve been brought back, in a way that stays true to the brand’s original style-meets-function heritage. The prime example: The Wayland Sneakerboot. Its hybrid duckboot look and rubberized leather materials seem ripped from the design sketchbooks of today — but actually, they’re from a forgotten chapter of history. Good save, Hood.
