Wolverine — the 140-year-old boot and clothing company — and 343 Industries, developer of the Halo franchise, are continuing their partnership for a second year: Following the first launch in 2022 of the Wolverine x Halo Master Chief boot that sold out in less than one minute, this four-boot, limited-edition drop is available now in Spartan-inspired colorways: Wild Kovan, Foxwood Seal, Scorpion Horvath, and Midnight Frost.
“After a powerful moment with the Wolverine x Halo Master Chief Boot selling out in just a few seconds last year, we’re thrilled to launch this coveted Spartan-inspired boot collection,” said Scott Schoessel, VP of Global Marketing at Wolverine. The boots come at an exciting time for the Halo franchise with the recent launch of Halo Infinite’s Season 3: Echoes Within that took place on March 7. Drawing inspiration from Halo Infinite’s multiplayer experience, the one-of-a-kind boots take cues from the Spartan’s armor and the customization options in the Halo universe.

We couldn’t be more excited to give fans a unique way to express their style by way of their favorite media franchise.”
