Timberland‘s heavyweight collaborations keep coming. This month alone, the American bootmaker has unveiled joint drops with Off-White™, atmos, Shoe Palace, MADNESS, The North Face and Engineered Garments, to name a few. Now, Japan’s WTAPS gets in on the action.
In line with designer Tetsu Nishiyama’s military intrests, the Timberland 6” boot boasts its usual water-resistance and substantial silhouette. All-grey nubuck covers the upper with matching laces and sole. The heel boasts WTAPS branding and the coordinates of the label’s main office — 35d40.33NL 139d42.42EL. The key detail is the honeycomb embossing seen on the bootshaft, which grants the understated shoe textural intrigue. A leather WTAPS hangtag rounds out the premium package.
Look for specialty Timberland and WTAPS stockists to offer the boot on November 25. Meanwhile, Timberland may have revealed its biggest drop of the season, a Dipset-referencing 6” boot releasing in collaboration with Supreme.
