WOLVERINE HAS OVER 130 YEARS OF HERITAGE IN THE BOOT GAME.
For most people when they think of wolverine in this modern era they envision shops like sears stores or local big box shop. But the time-tested quality wolverine has encapsulated into one brand is something else. Here is what the history looks like told by their website.
By 1901, Krause organized the Rogue River Electric Light and Power Company to bring power to Rockford, Michigan, allowing him and his sons to build and operate a shoe factory. By 1903, they were making 300 pairs of shoes a day. Krause was a true revolutionary, later selling shares of the company to its own employees, becoming one of the nation’s first profit-sharing plans. In 1921, flush with success, the company took the name Wolverine Shoe and Tanning Corporation. Wolverine’s headquarters still remain in Rockford, Michigan today.
