Here at Timberland, we love our snow. Nothing is better than the white stuff. But even I have to admit that this year I couldn’t be more excited for the warming temps!
Spring is all about having fun in the sand, sun, and water. When it came time for our Spring 2013 photo shoot, we kept this spirit in mind and traveled to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
For over a century, MV has been one of the most popular summer destinations on the east coast- and we definitely aren’t surprised. There is something for every warm weather traveler. Not only does it have some of the best beaches in the country, but it is also home to lakes, miles of trails to explore, and authentic boat builder workshops.
We found lots of interesting landscapes to act as a back drop to our colorful Spring 2013 product (where better to shoot a boat shoe then on an actual sailboat?). Plus, we actually got to meet some of the boat builders who crafted our ship the old fashioned way – how cool is that?
Be sure to check out the results of our trip! Our MV photos are all at womens.timberland.com
In the next few years, every person will be able to interact and have a conscious choice on colour and the way that a garment is constructed and finished. In a true sense Timberland are pioneers in the new movement, the biggest of our generation: “The makers movement.”

This season, Matthew Miller has partnered with Timberland to design the footwear for his show at LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN. Using our Design Your Own online tool (US version here and UK version here), the breakthrough menswear designer created four unique styles which mirror the themes of his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.
Miller picked from the hundreds of leather bases, laces, rivets and soles available on Timberland.com to adapt the classic boot to sit alongside his collection. See the finished products and hear more about the collaboration from the designer himself:
