In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Timberland’s timeless 1973 Classic Yellow Boot, the renowned brand has embarked on a creative journey alongside a team of visionary designers known as Future Makers. Together, they have reimagined this iconic footwear through a lens of bold design innovation, resulting in a captivating collaboration with Aimé Leon Dore. Led by Teddy Santis, Aimé Leon Dore is acclaimed for its distinctive and enduring aesthetic, showcasing the power of simplicity in its designs.
The focal point of this collaboration is the upper of the 3-eye lug boat shoe, beautifully enveloped in premium full-grain leather. Embracing responsible manufacturing practices, Timberland proudly supports the Leather Working Group, ensuring the use of sustainable materials. Inspired by Aimé Leon Dore’s luxurious and feel-good color palette, the flat full-grain leather showcases a contemporary twist on the classic silhouette, exuding elegance and sophistication.
Honoring Timberland’s commitment to genuine quality and authenticity, the revised boat shoe boasts traditional, meticulous handsewn construction. This time-honored technique pays tribute to the brand’s heritage while ensuring impeccable craftsmanship. Each stitch reflects the expert touch of skilled artisans, adding to the overall allure and durability of the footwear.
The 360-degree functional rawhide lacing system takes center stage, offering a personalized fit that guarantees all-day comfort. This innovative feature enables wearers to adjust the shoe to their liking, enhancing the overall experience of wearing these timeless classics. With every step, the custom fit ensures unparalleled support, making these boat shoes an ideal choice for any occasion.

Whether you’re strolling through city streets or embarking on outdoor adventures, the interior of the Timberland x Aimé Leon Dore collaboration ensures a luxurious experience with each stride.
To further enhance the comfort factor, an EVA-blend foam footbed has been incorporated into the design. This lightweight and supportive material offers exceptional cushioning, making every step feel like you’re walking on clouds. Whether you’re traversing rugged terrain or navigating urban landscapes, the footbed delivers unmatched comfort and support, ensuring your feet remain happy throughout the day.
Timberland’s commitment to quality is reflected in the supportive rubber outsole of this collaboration. Crafted to withstand the test of time, this robust outsole ensures long-lasting durability and exceptional traction. Whether you’re braving wet surfaces or exploring uneven terrains, these boat shoes provide reliable stability and grip, enabling you to navigate with confidence.
