Timberland has been making shoes and outdoor wear for near on a century. Founded back in 1928, the company has done well to not only stay relevant but to become one of the most dominant brands in its industry.
It wasn't until the 90s however, that Timberland shoes rose to prominence when a who’s who from hip-hop adopted the shoes into popular culture.
Biggie Smalls, Tupac, Wu-Tang, Mobb Deep, the list is long of rappers who championed wearing ‘Tims’.
For Spring 2019, Timberland has introduced some contemporary military-inspired apparel that shows the brand is still innovating to this day.
Featured in the new collection are T-shirts and canvas sneakers both with a camouflage print and some military-inspired chukka boots, which historically were called ‘desert boots’ when worn by British soldiers in the Western Desert Campaign of World War II.
