As I was watching people walk by, a pair of yellow construction boots caught my attention. I noticed that guys seemed to be obsessed with these comfy classic shoes named “Timberland”. Nathan Sqartz began the Abington Shoe Company in South Boston, where he created one of the first waterproof leather boots. In the 1980s, Timberland became an icon in Europe, especially in Italy for the middle class group searching for the “Made In America” look. They were also popular with the hip hop fans at college back in 1987. The boots may be ridiculously over priced, but the comfort and fashion statement you will be making could be worth it. The shoe can be worn with anything and can help create a look.
I wouldn’t expect myself to like this boot, but to my surprise, I love its boyish and rugged outdoor appeal! Plus the original mustard-camel color is a bonus! In Europe, girls have already caught on to the trend and are seen purchasing the yellow boots and rocking them with their outfits. Women celebrities in America like Rihanna and Rita Ora have also been spotted wearing Timberlands.
How do girls wear them? My tip is to start off with black leggings or jeans and a simple shirt, you will catch on from there!
Boys? Any type of jeans folded right above the boots.
Brilliant pair of shoes! Let me know if you own a pair, and if you do, comment on how you style them! 🙂
