The limited-edition collection comprises four designs – three unisex and one women’s style. From subtle gold glitter to statement crystal embellishment, the capsule is a unique marriage that fuses two brand’s design iconography.

A limited edition style, encrusted in all-over Swarovski crystals, makes it the ultimate in statement streetwear. The Jimmy Choo x Timberland collection reinvents a core of timeless Timberland styles with a Jimmy Choo touch.

Continuing Timberland’s pledge to plant 50 million trees over the next five years, a tree will be planted for every pair of Jimmy Choo x Timberland boots created in support of Timberland’s pursuit of a greener future. Featuring embellished gold glitter and one-of-a-kind crystal detailing, the versatile range epitomises off-duty glamour.

“To collaborate with Timberland allows Jimmy Choo to take part in a different conversation. I love getting together with different creative minds to create beautiful and surprising product. Timberland’s outdoor work heritage, combined with our high fashion sensibility, creates something really exciting and unique,” said Sandra Choi, Creative Director.

“Timberland was the footwear of choice when I was going to college in the early ’90s so there was a notion of ‘nostalgia’ for me in this collaboration. But I also like to surprise people, make them ask ‘what kind of product are we going to come up with’,” continued Sandra Choi.
