American footwear manufacturer Wolverine broke the mold with a limited edition of the boots worn by the Master Chief from Halo. Based on the Hellcat model and developed with the 343 Industries studio, the pair is priced at $225.
The “117” printed on the side not only alludes to the code code of the soldier named John from Project Spartan, but also the number of units that will be put up for sale. According to the parent company of Hush Puppies, Merrel and Saucony, there are no tricks to getting the product, other than patience.
“Comments came in asking the brand to make the boots a reality. Now, after nearly a year of design and collaboration, Wolverine and 343 Industries are answering that demand.”
The boots feature the insignia of the UNSC, the United Nations Space Command, and the logo of the Materials Group, the division of the Office of Naval Intelligence that developed the Mjolnir Powered Assault Armor.
“The limited edition boot gives Halo fans the opportunity to become the Master Chief and bring the Halo universe into their everyday lives. We can’t wait to see how fans react to the collaboration and upcoming releases as part of our partnership with Wolverine,” said 343 Director of Halo and Xbox Consumer Products John Friend.
To qualify for one of the 117 pairs of Master Chief boots, all you have to do is register on the site Wolverines.
