Having only just celebrated our revolution around the sun with the New Year, Timberland is ready to celebrate the new moon with the Lucky Knot collection. Calling on the signature red and gold that signify the arrival of the Year of the Rooster, the outdoor footwear brand rings in the festivities with four iterations of its classic silhouettes for a bit of extra huat on your heels.
Adding a touch of prosperity to the brand’s iconic six-inch and roll-top boots, the festive rollout from its SS17 collection sees the traditional Chinese knot motif – a decoration commonly hung on walls, doors and storefronts during the Lunar New Year period to welcome luck and good fortune – embellishing the boots’ full-grain, nubuck leather uppers with the same richly woven brocade fabric used to construct the knots. Offering a luxurious red padded collar and gold logo detailing, the boots feature the same waterproof seam-sealed construction, PrimaLoft insulation and rubber lug outsoles that make them a renowned outdoor staple.
In addition to the roll-tops for men and six-inch premium boots for both men and women, the Lucky Knot collection also features a range of apparel that takes inspiration from the new lunar cycle, including a tees, chinos, and a timeless black Dryvent Mount Kearsage Bomber Jacket that features red lining adorned in festive graphics – ideal for those looking to complement their boots and double their luck.
Boots from $279, apparel from $59. Available at Timberland stores.
