There is no denying that Timberland boots are one of the biggest throwback trends of the early 2000s. Back and bigger than ever, Timberland is again conquering footwear with their old classics, and a number of new and contemporary designs.
SHESAID chatted with buyer Kevin Luong about the iconic style, how to style your own pair, and what’s coming up in 2015.
Why do you think Timberland’s are so iconic?
Timberland didn’t set out to create a fashion icon or to be iconic. The yellow boot was born for function, form and craftsmanship for a hard working New Englander.
Over the years the boot gained a following and wearing the yellow boot meant you ready to chase your dreams and also stands a symbol of individuality. That’s what the ‘Boot Your Dream’ project was created to inspire young people to pledge their commitment to pursuing their own dreams.
Collaborations has also played a part of being so iconic, with collaborations such as Staple Design in 2007, Mastermind Japan in 2011 and Billionaire Boys Club in 2014.
What are some of the best ways to style Timberland’s for men and women?
Timberland’s shoes are classic, timeless and can’t be overstated. Some of the best ways to wear them are to wear them loosely, not tying the laces too tight. Timberlands are best worn with tapered or skinny pants and if you’re daring, with printed shorts. With the variety of colours available these can be dressed down or dressed up.
