Once again, you guys have left me speechless. Almost. The mikeroweWORKS Limited Edition 1000 Milers have sold out, bringing this year’s Labor Day fundraiser to a satisfying, but premature conclusion. Honestly, I thought we had enough inventory to last through the holiday, but I was wrong.
Maybe it’s because I underestimated the appeal of a quality product made in the USA?
Maybe it’s because people are finally seeing the importance of closing America’s skills gap?
Or maybe it’s because I removed my boots during a live interview on Fox and Friends yesterday morning, and plugged them shamelessly to over 8 million people?
Whatever the cause, the boots are gone, and my Foundation is the happy beneficiary. My sincere thanks to everyone who purchased a pair, and to everyone at Wolverine Boots & Apparel. And my apologies to everyone at Fox and Friends, for undressing on your program.
PS. To those of you who missed out, Wolverine is now offering to donate 10% of sales of The Original 1000 Mile boot through Labor Day to the mikeroweWORKS Foundation. These are the same boots I’ve worn for the last ten years, minus the MRW accents. I am, as ever, deeply humbled, and much obliged.
