While Timberland is a name that’s become synonymous with the great outdoors, the brand’s newest additions to its SS17 collection show that rocky terrain and forests aren’t all that it’s set to explore. Comprising lightweight constructions and summery tones, Timberland unveils a footwear and apparel collection that’ll equip you for the radiance of the sun, sand and sea.
Merging aesthetic fervor with comfort and purpose, the new Sensorflex™ Boat Shoes collection unveils a handful of new silhouettes that are a far cry from the Timberland’s boot and sneakerboot ranges, but carry the same trusted durability. Adapting the classic boat shoe aesthetic for a handsewn, premium construction with a three-layer Sensorflex™ system – featuring a firm upper for comfort and stability, an EVA middle layer that adapts to uneven surfaces, and a flexible, grooved outsole – Timberland’s iteration of the boat shoe is as appropriate for a weekend escapade on a yacht as it is for the shifting sands of the beach, with nubuck leather, full-grain leather, suede and organic cotton canvas varieties for every kind of adventure.
On the apparel front, the White Washed Apparel collection sees the brand’s typically hardy aesthetic take on softer tones suited for leisurely summer affairs. Spanning a range of lightweight cotton and chambray shirts, denim tops and shorts, and summertime-friendly outerwear for men and women, the collection sees muted tones and a bleached aesthetic fit in seamlessly with shabby chic beach shacks and sun-bathed seafront boardwalks. Coordinated with a pair of Sensorflex™ Boat Shoes, the complete wardrobe exudes a laidback aesthetic that doesn’t compromise on sturdiness or comfort.
The Sensorflex™ Boat Shoes and White Washed Apparel collection are available from $149 to $199 and $109 to $269 respectively, at Timberland stores islandwide.
