Wolverine Product Testing Report


We tested six pairs of shoes and one weather-protector spray sold by Wolverine Worldwide for total fluorine and for specific fluorinated stain and water repellent chemicals (PFASs). Total fluorine was measured by Dr. Graham Peaslee at the University of Notre Dame, allowing identification of samples likely containing PFAS-based repellents.

Samples that tested positive for fluorine were subjected to further analysis by Dr. Marta Venier at Indiana University to identify specific PFAS compounds.
