When the apocalypse comes, I’ve got the shoes for it; a pair of Wolverines. I’ve had them now for about 7 years and they show no signs of wearing out. I’ll be striding across our post-nuclear, or post-zombie, or post-nuclear zombie wasteland for years to come, because these things simply will not wear out. I have trouble justifying new shoes, because when I look down, there are my Wolverines, still together and hole-free. I’ve replaced their laces several times, but the soles still have lots of tread, and the leather uppers, though broken in are far from broken down.
This is not a paid advertisment for the company. I have no affiliation with them. I’m just very satisfied with their product, and plan to buy another pair when these ones eventually wear down. It’s rare in these Made-in-China days to have something that’s so durable.
