“Fresh and girly” are probably not be the first words that come to mind when you think of Timberland’s classic 6-inch boot, but Parisian style icon Nadège Winter might just change that. She’s been working in collaboration with our Timberland team in Europe and UK-based charity TRAID to design a cute, contemporary version that combines classic boot heritage with colorful, feminine style.
The limited edition ‘Nadège Winter x Timberland’ collection is available in selected stores across the UK, France, Italy and Benelux.
Parisian style icon Nadège Winter likes nothing more than to mix fashion, design and urban eco-awareness. You can imagine our delight when she approached our Timberland Europe team with her idea for “reinterpreting” our iconic classic yellow boot for women!
We connected Nadège, a freelance artistic director and communication consultant, with our long-time partner TRAID, a UK-based nonprofit that recycles, customizes and sells second-hand clothes to fund overseas development projects. Together, they set out to create a collection of footwear that was both fashion-forward and environmentally-aware.
After rummaging through the stock in TRAID’s London warehouse in search of fabrics, Nadège opted for statement Liberty, bandana and floral motifs for her designs:
The end result is a series of uniquely beautiful boots that have kept all of their classic charm — honey nubuck skin, golden eyelets and original laces – but with fresh, stylish, light-hearted print detail.
Starting this month, the limited edition (1600 pairs) “Nadège Winter for Timberland” collection will be available exclusively at prominent outlets and Timberland® stores across Europe.

The Spring 2012 Boot Company styles draw their inspiration from the similarly durable-yet-beautiful women’s footwear found in the early 20th century — well made, well worn and well loved. Here’s Penny, our Women’s Boot Company Designer, to tell us more:
Our Spring 2012 Boot Company collection for women offers beautiful craftsmanship in a bouquet of styles. Pick one for yourself.
