The Halo universe continues to expand in 2022, 343 Industries' Halo Infinite joining the recently launched television series by Paramount+. That’s not all though. Fans of Halo will also get the chance to lace some limited-edition boots over the coming weeks, the 117 pairs available paying homage to the Master Chief. Manufactured by Wolverine, the clodhoppers are based on the Hellcat boot, and will come with a $225 price tag.
‘Comments rolled in asking the brand to make the boots a reality,’ Wolverine said. ‘Now, after nearly a year of design and collaboration, Wolverine and 343 Industries are answering the call.’
Equipped with the mighty insignia of the UNC – United Nations Space Command – the boots also come with a logo from the Materials Group, a division that developed the Mjolnir Powered Assault Armor worn by Spartans.
‘Given our roots in military science fiction, we've often heard from our fans that there is an appetite for a boot inspired by the Master Chief. So, when Wolverine approached us about a collaboration, we were ready to answer the call,’ said John Friend, 343's director of Halo and Xbox consumer products.
‘The limited-edition boot gives Halo fans a chance to step inside (the boots) to become Master Chief and bring the Halo universe into their everyday life, and we're eager to see how fans react to the collaboration and forthcoming launches as part of our partnership with Wolverine.’
You’ll have to be quicker than the Master Chief himself to score a pair, however, as the release will be on a first-come, first-served basis (via Wolverine’s website).
