Wolverine and 343 Industries, the developer of the Halo franchise, have teamed up for the second year in a row to launch a new limited-edition boot collection inspired by the Spartans of Halo Infinite. The four new colorways, Wild Kovan, Foxwood Seal, Scorpion Horvath, and Midnight Frost, became available for purchase on March 16th. Last year, the first launch of the Wolverine x Halo Master Chief boot sold out in under a minute, highlighting the popularity of the collaboration.
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 7th. 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.
The design of the boots is inspired by the customization options and Spartan armor found in the Halo universe, with features such as a reflective patch on the tongue resembling Spartan helmet visors, a United Nations Space Command insignia found throughout the boot, and metallic tipped color pop laces with a secondary tonal lace. Additionally, the boots incorporate Wolverine's signature comfort, strength, and support, including an UltraSpring high rebound ETPU midsole and rubber lug outsoles for excellent traction.
Wolverine's VP of Global Marketing, Scott Schoessel, said that the partnership with Halo is representative of the company's commitment to reaching consumers through various touchpoints, including gaming. John Friend, Head of Halo and Xbox Consumer Products, said that the boots were designed to support fans on their day-to-day missions.
"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.
"Every Spartan needs a pair of boots they can count on, and we're excited to continue our partnership with Wolverine to bring a new range of boots to Halo fans," said John Friend, Head of Halo & Xbox Consumer Products. "With design inspired by the Spartan armors from Halo Infinite's multiplayer experience, these boots were made to support you on your day-to-day missions."
The Spartan collection boots will be available for $175.00 in limited quantities exclusively on www.wolverine.com, with select colors available on www.journeys.com. Fans who purchase a pair of boots on Wolverine.com will receive an exclusive Halo Infinite Nameplate Background called "Plasma Lock." Visit www.wolverine.com/halo for more information on the launch.
