How To Wear
They've become synonymous with street style and hip hop culture. Timberland's weren't created with that intention, far from it. The company was founded in 1952, its goal, to create the most durable, comfortable and waterproof boot in the market. A tool for the blue collar worker needing a dependable pair of boots. That all changed in the 1990s, when rappers began endorsing the boots. Artists like Mobb Deep, DMX and Biggie started rocking the style. A style that was adopted in urban culture much to the surprise of Timberland. Sales tripled and the company now embraces it's mark in pop culture. The Classic Six Inch Boot is the staple in hip hop fashion. Don't take our word for it, here are some of our favorite artists rocking the boots. A little style inspiration and homage for this footwear classic.
Loosen The Laces
The classic six inch Timberlands have seven holes to run the laces through on either side of the boot. Skip every other eyelet. The loose look should not prevent you from walking normal. Tighten or loosen to what you feel comfortable, that's the point of Timberlands.
Half or Full Tuck
Either tuck in your favorite pants all the way in the boot or just tuck in the back, leaving your pants in-front of the tongue. This might be a controversial statement, but we like variety of looks. Try them with tapered pants for a more modern look to this classic style.
Stick to the Classic
Now Timberland makes a variety of colors and styles. From taller to shorter, and just about every color spectrum. We like to stick with the Classic Tan 6 inch Boot. This style and color won't go out of style and it just goes with everything. You won't go wrong by going with the basic.
