If you’re like me, it’s likely you’ve been watching every sneaker YouTuber’s “Top 10 Pickups of 2015” video over the past few weeks. That’s cool. All of us are clamoring to get our hands on the latest Yeezy drop, the latest retro, the latest from the Three-Stripes. Just know that you always need to make a little room for Timberland.
The lifestyle boot company, first founded all the way back in 1918 in Boston, Massachusetts, has come a long way. (The name Timberland wasn’t introduced until 1973.) Thanks to co-signs from folks of all walks of life, the brand’s fanbase has never been more diverse.
Timbs are particularly relevant in streetwear. Starting with hip-hop in the late ’80s and into the ’90s, a fresh pair of clean Timberland boots was more than just a fashion statement. It was a calling. As Nas once put it: “Suede Timbs on my feet makes my cipher complete.”
A pair of the classic Tans says as much about who you are as a person as anything else. This January, you can add to the collection by grabbing the special Presidents’ Day Pack at Champs Sports. This drop will include both the Lincoln Copper boot, which released on Friday in select stores, as well as the Washington Burgundy boot to come on Friday, February 5. With both colorways offering an updated twist on the traditional colors that helped make the brand such a staple of any sneakerhead’s rotation, the Presidents’ Day pack is a nice start to 2016. Add in the unique inspiration and you can see why many of us are excited.
Timberland has carved out a nice niche in streetwear culture and up next is their Presidents’ Day Pack, which includes these two boots to choose from. Get hyped.
