Wolverine just collaborated with 343 Industries, developers of the Halo gaming franchise, for a second time to create the Spartan collection of boots, footwear that’s made for gamers, as well as the typical everyday consumer.

By blending the rich culture of the Halo gaming franchise with the ultimate comfort found in Wolverine’s shoe, this collaboration is making a return. This time around, the theme behind this collection and collaboration is Spartan-inspired, taking its cues from the Spartan’s armor and the customization option in the Halo universe.

The Spartans are the heroic figures in the game and considered the good guys in the Halo universe. More on that later.

Following the first launch last year, with their Wolverine x Halo Master Chief boot that sold out in less than one minute, this four-boot, limited edition drop will be available on March 16 in Spartan-inspired colorways: Wild Kovan, Foxwood Seal, Scorpion Horvath, and Midnight Frost. The Wolverine boots are coming at an exciting time for the Halo franchise following the launch of Halo Infinite’s Season 3: Echoes Within that took place on March 7. Fans who purchase a pair of the Spartan collection boots on wolverine.com will receive a code to obtain an exclusive Halo Infinite nameplate background titled “Plasma Lock.”

The boots come with lightweight UltraSpring high-rebound ETPU midsoles, rubber lugged outsoles for traction, knit and premium full-grain leather uppers with TPU ran- metallic -tipped color pop laces with secondary tonal lace, and color block hexagonal comfort lining and removable PU footbed with mesh-top liner. Everything from the colors of the boots, the design, and shape of the shoe embrace the attractiveness of the Halo game franchise while still providing extraordinary support.

“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.

For those unfamiliar with the Halo game franchise, according to Halopedia, Halo Spartans are members of a series of United Nations Space Command projects designed to create physically, genetically, technologically, and mentally superior super soldiers as special fighting units.” What better boot for a superior super soldier than a Wolverine boot built for performance and durability with the boots having multiple layers of protection. 

These exclusive boots are available on wolverine.com in limited quantities. Boots retail for $175.
