Not a lot has changed from a design perspective with the upcoming release of this Timberland Dookie Rope Pack. However that’s not to say that these two latest Timberland releases are not special in their own right. Two classic silhouettes in the Field Boot and 6 Inch Premium have both been given some bling bling treatment with the use of Dookie Rope laces. Dookie Rope chains arguably hit its peak ages ago when seen on the likes of Run DMC. Available now at STLESS.
