The venerable 6-inch Timberland is serving as the basis of a special collaboration with Nom de Guerre. As fans of Nom de Guerre know, operations at the cult New York label are soon going to come to an end, which makes this an especially appealing product. The boot in question is the Ballistic Nylon version of the Timberland classic, which lends itself perfectly to the extreme militaristic aesthetic that defines NDG’s latest collection. The boot has been fully blacked-out, including the outsole and all stitching, except for a disruptive camouflage patterned ankle collar; the effect is a pure combat equipment and workwear combination. On the technical side, the boot incorporates Timberland’s ion-mask technology, which makes the boot fully waterproof while maintaining breathability. Check out shots of the boot after the jump; it can be pre-ordered at the Chapter Express Rakuten store, with an expected release in October.
