Following the explosive release of MSCHF‘s Big Red Boots, a new custom now questions, “What if Timberland collaborated with MSCHF on a boot?” Crafted by designer/stylist and host of WhatNewYorkWears, Ari Serrano, with the help of artist Pri, the team-up reimagines the Big Red Boots in the look of Timberland’s signature 6-inch Boot in “Wheat Nubuck.”
Starting with a 3D printed version of MSCHF’s viral release, the white base of the oversized shoes was given a coat of paint by Pri. The familiar look sees most of the shoe painted to express the light brown “Wheat Nubuck” look paired with darker brown at the openings drawn from the leather found at the ankle region of Timberland’s 6-inch Boot.
Taking the take on the New York staple to the streets, Ari wore the custom Timberland x MSCHF Boots out and about in a series of photos and videos. Unexpectedly the playful, familiar look of the boots turned heads throughout New York.
