Timberland recently teamed up with Japanese singer-songwriter and comedian George Tokoro to produce a special version of its Premium Boot as part of its fall collaborations. Certainly a departure from previous interpretations of the iconic boots in terms of silhouette, the most noticeable feature is the removable embossed leather tongue cover that straps on around the back of the boot collar with silver hardware. This cover is embroidered with both the word ‘kutsu’ (shoe) based on George’s handwriting as well as an upside-down Chinese character for ‘fortune.’

Beneath this cover is a stylized stamp of Tokoro’s family name in Japanese as well as the words ‘Setagaya Base,’ a reference to Tokoro’s personal collection of cars, jackets, toys and more. This addition, combined with the high-contrast charcoal nubuck upper and red accents results in a unique but unorthodox style that really stands out. Priced at ¥24,150 JPY (approximately $240 USD), the pair is currently available for order over at atmos Tokyo.
