Timberland footwear brand does not belong to Fashion Houses with century-long histories, and is not represented at the High Fashion weeks in Milan or Paris. Nevertheless, the most famous creation by the brand’s designers – the yellow boots – are exhibited at the London Museum of International Contemporary Design and is sold at the famous London store - the Selfridges. In fact, “yellow boots” are so closely associated with the brand, that if asked, any American would easily make the connection: Yellow Boots - Timberland.
The legend has it, that the color of the shoe – the bright yellow - was not chosen at random. The shoe was intentionally made to stand out in the forest environment, so that the woodsmen, who were by the way the target audience for the shoe, would not drop timber on each other when working. This version is supported by the name of the brand itself – Timberland, and the company’s logo - American oak.
The models of the last couple of seasons are notable in that they all tend to carry that new trend in Timberland shoes, where conventional American style is being replaced with the new shapes and lineament of footwear for men.
The new Fall Winter Collection continues to surprise us with new ideas, implemented into the models, where classical features are beautifully combined with innovative solutions and high-quality materials.
The shoes in this collection are primarily inspired by the shoes of the English workers in the 30-s. The shoes were made of rough materials and were produced according to a special technology. Looks like the polished worn out leather, along with big buckles and zippers are the distinguishing elements of this season’s Timberland shoes. The collection is divided into three styles - Colrain (military style), Counterpane (ultrastylish shoes) and Tackhead (reflection of the new inventive Timberland style).
