Hong Kong’s MADNESS continues its string of strong collaborations, following its painted UltraBOOST sneaker and 50/50 Converse Chuck Taylor with a potent array of elevated Timberland shoes. Executed in muted army tones and plush suede, the revamped boots and shoes all sport hefty Vibram soles for maximum winter traction.
Encompassing tall boots, chukkas and boat shoes, the collection is divided into two releases: “Limited” and “Mainline.” Though both are only available in small quantities, the Limited boots, with darker hues and black outsoles, will be even harder to come by. Regardless, the shoes all boast hairy suede uppers, executed in dark navy and earthy beige with black accents, with GORE-TEX linings to keeping the wearer’s foot dry. Most Mainline shoes sport white outsoles with raw leather welts, with small “BY MDNS” tags distinguishing the shoes from the “MADNESS”-branded Limited footwear.
The collaboration drops via MADNESS’s web store and Hong Kong outpost on January 19 before hitting Timberland’s Hong Kong stores the next day. Take a closer look at the “ALTERATION” range below, with the Limited styles followed by the Mainline offerings.
