After some teasing on Shawn Yue’s IG account, the much anticipated collaboration between Timberland and his label MADNESS is finally launched. The capsule collection features the Yellow Boot redesigned with a personal touch by the Hong Kong actor / streetwear icon who wanted the boot to maintain its rugged style yet lightweight enough for comfortable daily wear.
Dubbed ‘TYPE-MD01, the boot is constructed with a mixed media of water resistant nylon and premium suede leather and engineered with Gore-Tex Performance Comfort technology to offer waterproof protection and optimized breathability. The footwear is completed with an outsole made with the Vibram Morflex to give a lightweight body and offered in Shawn’s favourite blue colour. Also included in the collection is the Gore-Tex Cruiser Jacket and a Down Jacket.
Timberland has long been famous for its craftsmanship and quality, while MADNESS has been known for its attention to details. The collaboration between the two labels has seamlessly demonstrated the perfect blend of craftsmanship and meticulous details, transmuting Timberland’s classic products into something different and better.
The Timberland x Madness capsule collection will be released in limited quantities on mdnsonline.com on Nov 25; at CROSSOVER Flagship JB, and Sunway Pyramid on Nov 30; and finally at Timberland Mid Valley and Pavilion on Dec 7. Don’t miss it.
p/s: We’ll be heading to the launch party in Shanghai on Nov 25 so stay tuned to Streething for updates.
