Here’s a simple way to maybe win a pair of work boots by Wolverine valued at $333. Go to this site and leave a comment that answers the question: “Where Do You Wear Your Workboots.” Entries close on January 20 with a winner announced on January 23. If you win, you’ll get a boot called the Wolverine Northman and they have some interesting features like genuine Horween Leather.
While many people might read that phrase in the product’s description and simply skip over it, I was curious just what Horween Leather is. Come to find out it refers to the products of the only remaining tannery in Chicago and it is run by a member of the fourth generation of Horweens who have been in the tanning business there since 1905. The company claims to make high grade and exacting leather that is used in an array of products from sporting goods and bags to, you guessed it, shoes and boots. Other features of the Northman include Gore-Tex waterproof lining, Vibram outsoles and Thinsulate insulation.
