If you already own a pair of Timberlands, you'd be familiar with how hardy they can be. But a level above is the Timberland Pro® line, that's—just like the name suggests—is designed for actual professional use. Think performance-driven clothes, footwear and accessories for those working in tough conditions such as construction sites, oil rigs and other occupations that require the use of heavy machinery. Imagine your favourite Timberland yellow boots, but jacked up with better cushioning and protection.
The Timberland Pro® line is available only in select Timberland stores, and has never been available in Singapore. That's about to change with a special collaboration with Japanese label N.HOOLYWOOD; the first-ever collaboration under the Timberland Pro® line.
N.HOOLYWOOD founder and designer Daisuke Obana took reference from the line's workwear style, and reworked it completely. The fit of the clothes is more oversized and the details are kept to a minimum. The colours too are left rather muted, with the exception of the safety orange hue that instantly brings to mind, safety cones and road work signs. The standout piece is most definitely the dungaree that's cut rather wide at the legs.
The footwear stays true to Timberland's iconic styles and is available in two iterations—the six-inch Direct Attach Soft Toe boots and Disruptor Soft Toe chukka. The former is similar to Timberland's signature six-inch yellow boot but is enhanced with premium waterproof leather and soft toe construction. The chukka style is designed with an anti-fatigue insole for increased comfort. Both styles of shoes are also treated with oil-resistant outsoles, and Timberland Pro® 24/7 COMFORT SUSPENSION™ that provides all-round comfort and cushioning. They're quite a mouthful but all you need to know is that these shoes are designed to keep your feet well-protected while ensuring that they stay comfortable too, and in style.
The Timberland Pro® x N.HOOLYWOOD capsule collection will be available at the Raffles City Timberland store, as well as N.HOOLYWOOD dealers at Robinsons at The Heeren, and Limited Edt Chamber at Marina Bay Sands from 17 November 2018.
