If there’s one wardrobe staple that won’t let you down this season, it’s undoubtedly a sturdy pair of Timberland boots. The classic brand continues to grow in popularity, a crossover favorite in the world of footwear and streetwear. Spinning off of the brand’s success, we’ve partnered with Timberland for the latest installment of BNY Sole Series. Here, we’ve recreated limited-edition versions of two favorite boot styles—the 6-inch and the “Authentic Hike”.
“With Timberland, for the past couple of seasons we’ve stuck to their classics like the 6-Inch boot, but this time we wanted to mix it up a little,” explains Chris Pepe, the Senior Men’s Footwear Buyer and the head of the collaboration. “We thought their new hiker shape was amazing, so we’ve created an updated version with brand’s best materials.”
This exclusive “Authentic Hike” boot comes in black or tan nubuck options, while the iconic 6-inch boot style is available in sleek brown leather. “Our previous collaboration with Timberland for the 2016 BNY Sole Series actually lent inspiration to this month’s 6-Inch boot. Now the materials used are an inverse, with a dark brown scotch grain upper and a suede collar,” says Pepe.
These three choices are certainly perfect for winter, and Pepe notes, “Timberland has all the essential qualities for battling cold elements—providing warmth, plus waterproof properties, too.” He says, “They’re able to do that while also looking great. The boots can appeal to any age group, from the classic guy to someone just looking for a fashionable, cool shoe.”
