Timberland‘s iconic 6″ boot gets a fresh rework in Canadian red, just in time for Toronto’s hosting of the NBA All-Star Weekend between February 12-14.
Coined the Timberland Red 6 “SPECIAL MAKE-UP,” with official designation Style #A2416 (the original’s is Style #10061), the boot’s iconic silhouette is made real through a premium red nubuck upper with black leather padded collar and a woven heal tab in black and metallic gold. Peacocking features arrive via the 18 karat gold plated lace keeper, hangtag chain and tree logo, while the top two eyelets get the 18K gold treatment with the others finished in corrosion-resistant red.
Place your foot inside and the leather footbed’s exclusive anti-fatigue technology from Timberland is laced with gold foil, keeping you comfy, while the boot is insulated with 400 grams of PrimaLoft for warmth. On the heel, Timberland’s iconic tree is interwoven with the Canadian Maple Leaf, which just looks and feels right.
“Timbs” have appeared on nearly every R&B and hip-hop star’s feet since the early ’90s, however just 2,016 pairs of the Red 6 drop today, Saturday, February 6, at select Foot Locker and Champs Sports stores across Canada.
