US-based production for US consumers. It’s harder to think of anything more ‘America First’ than this. But the goal here isn’t as much political as it is social. The collection is called Ramparts, and was launched by Wolverine, Michigan-based footwear brand famous for producing work boots (part of Wolverine World Wide).
An assist to war veterans
Ramparts manufactures work boots of different heights, made with the best materials in three different colors and with a precise objective: helping the non-for-profit association Workshop for Warriors, which offers training programs to war veterans so that they can be able to re-enter the work force by developing new manufacturing knowledge and capacities.
100% until Friday
Until July 5th, 100% of income originating from the sale of the Limited-Edition version of Ramparts boots, made with Horween leather (Chicago-based tannery), will benefit Workshop for Warriors. But the association will continue receiving, until the end of the year, 5% of the entire profits from the collection.
Proud to be made in the USA
The collaboration between Wolverine the non-for-profit association has given hope to the US footwear production chain. “We are proud to offer boots created for American workers, by American workers”, stated Andrew Shripka, VP of marketing at Wolverine.
