Timberland‘s iconic yellow boot is now 40 years old, and the bootmaker is celebrating the milestone with the Timberland 40th Anniversary LTD Collection. The goods take the form of three amped-up classics: the 6-inch yellow boot, World Hiker and Super Boot, all featuring new technology developed over the course of several decades, including Italian-made Vibram soles and PrimaLoft insulation. The special collection is limited to only 1973 pairs of each style and individually numbered on the inside of the tongue. One style will be released each month through select retailers, starting with the Super 6″ Yellow Boot on September 25, 2013. That same day, Timberland is auctioning off pairs #1 and #1973 of each iconic style to help support the Rainforest Alliance‘s Sustainable Tourism program. Look for the World Hiker to be available October 25th and the Super Boot to launch November 23rd.
As part of the 40th anniversary celebration, Timberland partnered with the Rig Out, as well friends Noah Kalina and Mr. Mort, to create a film and digi-mag called “Into the Trees.” Check out the video below.
