In partnership with Concept Kicks, Timberland‘s CONSTRUCT 10061 imprint is set to drop a set of highly-conceptual upcycled shoes. The project brings together a wide variety of creative minds to reshape Timberland’s signature silhouettes, utilizing thoughtful recycling techniques to create a series of limited-run footwear styles.
CONSTRUCT 10061 brings together a wide range of creatives that include knit specialist Suzanne Oude Hengel; footwear deconstructionist Helen Kirkum; Peterson Stoop; jeffstaple; Solene Roure, VF Corp creative director Alex Dardinski, Concept Kicks founder Daniel Bailey and more. The imprint’s initial release centers around four progressive revisions of the iconic Timberland 6-Inch boot, bringing to life four models from the first wild CONSTRUCT 10061 series.
Concept:06 and Concept:20 are the first shoes in the series to see production, each designed by Dutch duo Peterson & Stoop, with Kirkum collaborating on the heavily patchworked model. Made from discarded leather scraps, this model sports a direct inject sole comprised of re-used leather and polyurethane. Peterson & Stoop’s signature Wavy Stormwelt construction informs the white and brown Concept:20, with David Mawdsley providing the stacked sole, Hengel serving up the padded collar and Nathan Alexander Walker designing the lace placement.
Expect Kirkum and Peterson & Stoop’s work to hit Complexcon in an edition of 31 pieces each for $310 USD. Whatever stock remains will join two other styles (seen below) on CONSTRUCT 10061’s site later this year. The website also showcases the eye-popping 95 distinct styles from the upcoming Season 2.
