Native Shoes Fall 2010 Fitzsimmons Boots — Let The Timbs Take A Hike
Few footwear styles have gained as massive a following in urban America as Timberland boots. There’s an astronomical amount of rap lyrics name-checking Timbs — Biggie nods to hi go-to footwear choice in cuts like “Suicidal Thoughts” (“I like black Timbs and black hoodies”) and “Hypnotize” (“Timbs for my hooligans in Brooklyn”), Ghostface references them in “Run!” (“My Timbs start feeling like they Nike Airs on me”), Nas raps about them in “Made You Look” (“Knock a pimp’s drink down in his pimp cup/That’s the way you get Timberland’d up”), and the list goes on and on. Street cred aside though, it’s been a minute since Timberland released some baddass boots that went beyond their functionality in harsh weather.
Enter the new Native Shoes Fitzsimmons boots for Fall 2010, which take their cue from classic hiker boots (be they Timbs or any other brand) but reinvent them through the use of foam-injection model EVA, which yields a more lightweight, airy, and washable design (brownie points galore for the washable feature). Free of animal bi-products, all Native shoes are manufactured in such a way as to minimize energy emissions and produce zero waste for a remarkably eco-friendly approach.
Available in both men and women’s sizes, the Fitzsimmons come in a Crayola box worthy array of colors, including: Jiffy Black, Bottle Cap Gray (pictured below), Pencil Orange (pictured fourth above), Academy Blue (pictured second below), Torch Red (pictured second above), Ovaltine White, Zucchini Green (pictured last below), Olympian Blue (pictured first, at top), Trail Brown (pictured third below), and Parachute Green (pictured third above).
