Seen on its own Humberto Leon just few weeks ago as he went about the City of Lights, Opening Ceremony is set to launch its new collaborative footwear with Timberland the Watershoes. To contain what will be a shopping pandemonium when the shoes official release next Friday. Opening Ceremony is offering a pre-order process that will guarantee you a pair of the limited edition.
An interesting backstory surfaced about the origin of this latest collaboration between OC and Timberland. The Watershoes were part of Timberland product portfolio back in the 1980s. Subsequently, the design was shelved till the eagle-eyes at OC noticed them on artist Nate Lowman and actor Leo Fitzpatrick in 2001. Luck would have it, Leong stumbled upon a pair of dead stock at a shop in Greenwich Village. Now with a store and a long standing partnership in place, OC and Timberland decided to re-issue the Watershoes. A durable construct of breathable mesh, waterproof leather, and Neoprene last, the new footwear is the ideal accessory for the escapes of summer either by the pool side, on a beach, or the deck of an yacht. Comes in trio of colorways, in teal, white, or orange, the Opening Ceremony x Timberland Watershoes will be available Friday, July 16th. However, you could reserve yours today. Simply follow the instruction here and fax the form to 212-965-8776. Pre-orders end on July 13th.
