Japanese streetwear label Wacko Maria has been a staple for nearly two decades now. Aside from the imprint’s continued success from its in-house offerings, tasteful collaborations have propelled the brand forward. This year, Wacko Maria has already connected with Cheech & Chong and WOLF’S HEAD. Now, American footwear manufacturer, Timberland, joins the brand on two leopard print colorways of the 2-Eye Classic Lug. Both parties have worked with the print recently and now blend styles. Previously, Wacko Maria connected with Suicoke on a leopard print Deebo and Supreme x Timberland Spring/Summer 2019 featured a leopard print 3-Eye Classic Lug.
Arriving in purple and brown, the 2-Eye Classic Lug utilizes a premium leather on its leopard print upper. From there, nubuck overlays combine with a rubber black outsole to outline the material composition of each pair. Providing contrast to the look, the tongue utilizes black and connects to the toe box while the top layer of the sole unit favors a clean shade of purple and brown for each of the respective colorways.
While the Wacko Maria x Timberland 2-Eye Classic Lug colorways have already sold out via Wacko Maria, Timberland and international retailers such as Asphaltgold are slated to release both pairs August 6 at a price of €165 EUR (approx. $168 USD).
Elsewhere in the footwear world, the Raf Simons-designed Prada Nappa sandals are available now.
