Timberland Nubuck

The Timberland 6″ has become a favorite over the years, an icon. To celebrate the favorites, Timberland has decided each season to reimagine the favorites with new materials, new colors and modern design. The Red Nubuck in its limited release is a product of that re-imagination of the 6″ boot. The boot is made of premium materials of course, the outsole is made from recycled rubber, which is great for the environment, and designed for traction and durability.

A.P.C Controversy Causes Partnership With Timberland To Go Bye Bye

Following A.P.C’s showing of their Timberland collaboration in Paris earlier this week, head of the A.P.C brand Jean Touitou held a sign that read “Last Ni$$@& in PARIS”. He then proceeded to speak and this is the drivel that came out of his mouth to explain the sign: “in the ghetto, it is all the Timberlands, all the big chain” He later tried to defend his comments by saying “I am friends with Kanye…When I came up with this idea, I wrote him, with the picture of the look and the name I was giving to it ad he wrote back immediately saying something like, ‘I love this vibe.’”

Timberland responded by canceling their collaboration with A.P.C and issuing a statement “Yesterday we became aware of the offensive remarks made by Jean Touitou during his A.P.C. Fall Menswear show in Paris. We have chosen to immediately terminate our involvement with the A.P.C. brand, including the footwear collaboration we had planned for this fall. Simply stated, this kind of language and approach is in complete contrast with our values. Timberland seeks to collaborate with designers and brands who are at the forefront of lifestyle trends; equally important, they must also share our values. We will not tolerate offensive language or racial slurs of any kind being associated with the Timberland brand.” Bravo Timberland.

Although the US has been recently struggling with violent and racial policing, the fashion industry as usual seems to be oblivious to these issues. Paris has a history of race and religious-related conflicts, you’d think that a person like Touitou would be aware of using such a problematic statement in a public setting, plastering it on posters none the less.

This act is a disgusting approach of appropriation. Which is why Kanye’s alleged part in this stunt is sort of weird. Over the years he himself has  spent time appropriating high fashion for himself, peers and fans. Making a comment on a place where his peers and himself were at a time not welcomed. His song “Ni**as In Paris” celebrates the door opening to such acts and culture. It’ll be interesting to see what the usually outspoken Kanye will have to say about this.

It’s cold out there and lately we’ve been visited by surprise flurries. We all hate it when the slush gathers on the sidewalks, making it difficult to keep your balance. Timberlands are ideal for said weather; they’re warm and  comfortable, with great traction. Not to mention that they give any outfit and edge.  We’ve got the entire family covered, from kids to mens and women. We even have the Stussy X Timberlands. The two brands teamed up to create a reworked version of the six inch boot. They added a zipper along the upper leather part of the boot, along with Stussy’s branding on the top of the tongue. When living in New York City, Timbs are essential, so come in and get yourself a pair.tumblr_mwkz6c30bm1qitjcco1_r1_500timberland-stussy-6-release-06-960x640stussy-x-timberland-2014-fall-winter-6-inch-boots-0StussyTimbs3_1024x10241086010810

Timberland Abington Spring 2012 Collection


Timberland’s Abington Collection always offers solid boots, hiking shoes and deck inspired footwear and their Spring 2012 collection that just landed is no exception. All comprised out of higher quality materials such as Horween leather, rich suede and durable canvas. Each pair is also fitted with Vibram outsoles to ensure that you get a lot of wear out of the shoes. My personal favorites have to be these deck shoes.

Timberland Abington Boat Chuckka


The collection continues to draw from New England’s rich tradition of field and factory footwear, and adds new influence via the service industries. Dock workers, police men, and posties bring a new look and feel to Abington (particularly in their Boat Chukka).

Timbs, Timbos, Timmies? None of these names applied before 1973 when the company’s name was officially Abington. Confused? Let me break it down for you. In 1952, Timberland founder Nathan Swartz, who began his shoemaking career in Beantown in 1918 as an apprentice stitcher, bought half interest in The Abington Shoe Company. Three years later he bought up the remaining shares at which time he brought his sons into the company. Things didn’t really start to get rolling until 1960 when the Swartz family introduced the innovative injection-molding technology into the footwear industry. This enabled the production of virtually waterproof boots by connecting the soles to the leather uppers without stitching. The brand name Timberland was introduced for this product and because the waterproof boot proved to be very popular, in 1973 the company name was officially changed to The Timberland Company.

 

The Abington Collection consist of three different styles: The Roll Top (as seen above), The Cupsole, and The Hiker. All three silhouettes are crafted from locally-sourced leathers from Horween Leather Company of Chicago and feature Vibram outsoles. The collection will soon be exclusively available in Brooklyn at Rime.
