Timberland Re-Invented

Posted by twese on October 30, 2009

World, Let me first start by introducing myself, My name is Tobi Babajide, I go by the name Polo for those that are familiar. Im a 21 year old student pursing my goals and dreams, but most importantly I will be a guest writer on Grade A Certified in the fashion section. You will only find content in my posts, I am not going to put up just pictures, there is going to be a story behind every picture. You go on many fashion blogs and all you see are pictures of whats poppin and whats hot and the next best thing. I belive there is more to it than that. Eveything should have content.

Without Further ado, here is todays post.

Timberland is a company that has been a staple in the shoe industry for a number of years, but for a while now people have been shying away from putting on a pair of swamps or even the classic pair of constructs. Timberland was taken out of the “cool equation”. Why this happened? no one really knows, but i think it was because of the shift in fashion culture, people were tired of the regular swamps or the regular classic timberlands, People wanted their boots to have more style and attention to detail. Companies like Frye, Ransom, Steve Madden, Dr. Martens “got it” . They produced more fashion boots that had style but also had the rugged function some people look for.  Timerland must have realized that they were being left out of the “new” “cool” equation. So they went back to the drawing board and  re-invented their boots. They have added the cool, rough, and functional aspect to their boots. But its also important to remember that they did not get rid of the classic that people grew to love.

A Few from the 2010 Boot Collection


Men's Counterpane Cap Toe Chukka

The basic requirements of the industrial work force still have their place today. Unfinished edges, ghost stitching and worn details give each shoe a story related to the needs of that era—versatility, function and form. New fall varnishes looked worn, but well kept, as if valued over time. Imported.
