In the season of unusual collaborations between brands to advance fashion houses and brands in terms of technology, sustainability amongst other causes these brands champion, Timberland has ventured into a first-ever footwear capsule collection with material sciences company, PANGAIA. Sharing a desire to create and innovate with purpose, both brands have been heavily inspired by the nature that surrounds us while creating the collection.
Fans of Timberland can expect to see a footwear capsule collection that combines partly natural materials, bold colours and iconic style. The capsule also features a reimagined 6-Inch boot and a mule, both offered in men’s and women’s sizes. In an effort to update the iconic Timberland x PANGAIA Premium Fabric 6-Inch Boot, this collection will lean into a cleaner aesthetic with subtle flaps covering the eyelets and tonal outsoles. The modern take on the classic boot is made in part with renewable materials such as responsibly grown rubber, abaca plant fiber and organically grown cotton.
Looking for something new to show off this season, or to gift a loved one who is a fan of Timberland? The Timberland x PANGAIA Fabric Slip-On Mule would be the perfect pick—this mule was created specifically in line with Timberland’s Timberloop design process. Both the outsole and the inner bootie/webbing system are engineered to be easily disassembled at the end of the shoe’s life. To close the loop, Timberland asks customers to send back the product once no longer in use, so its parts can be put into their proper recycling stream toward a second life.
Setting this capsule collection apart from the other collections by Timberland would be the custom textblock explaining the material composition – a design detail synonymous with PANGAIA. What does it read, you ask? On the boots you'll see: “These boots are made in part using responsibly grown rubber, abaca plant fiber and organically grown cotton." while on the mules you'll see: “These shoes are made in part using responsibly grown rubber, abaca plant fiber and organically grown cotton. They are designed for circularity.”
The Timberland x PANGAIA Premium Fabric 6-Inch Boot and Timberland® x PANGAIA Fabric Slip-On Mule will be available exclusively at Timberland Jewel Changi Airport from 10 November.
