Very few pieces of footwear have significantly impacted the culture in the last 50 years, more than the classic Timberland boot.

Since the brand debuted the distinct 6-inch boots in 1973, the unmistakable silhouette has been adopted and repurposed by countless demographics and subcultures, each helping reinvent the mainstay item in a way that never feels forced.

From its utilitarian use as protective footwear on job sites to its adaptation into fashion by the myriad of hip-hop legends, the versatile wheat kicks continue to pervade the cultural timeline, blurring the boundaries of high-low style in the process.

After a half-century of influence, Timberland seeks to breathe new life into the yellow boot while remaining true to the shoes’ history and identity.

Accompanying the opening of a brand-new flagship store in NYC, complete with the first US boot customization workshop dubbed “The Shed,” Timberland tapped six innovative creators to design their own version of the classic leather steppers with coinciding clothing capsules to match.

Released at the end of March, CLOT’s Edison Chen gave his east-meets-west-inspired rendition of the boot to kickstart the collab series. Following the debut of Chen’s tiger-striped Timb, Samuel Ross of A-COLD-Wall*, artist Nina Chanel Abney, footwear innovator Suzanne Oude Hengel, designer Humberto Leon, and former creative director of Timberland Christopher Raeburn will give their offerings as an homage to 50 years of unrivaled style.

While we patiently await each designer’s signature take on the renowned Timberland design, here are some of our favorite collabs featuring the quintessential work boot silhouette.


It doesn’t get any more New York than this. With years of history between the two streetwear legends, this rendition of the staple 6-inch boot leaves no room for mistaking – and why should it? As the most “deadass” version of the Timberland boots, this collab is just a reminder of who's still running the game. A bit overzealous? Sure, but when cultural forces like Timberland and Supreme come together, everyone should be on notice.
