The time has come for the second Construct 10061 offering to be unveiled. This time, Timberland’s one-of-a-kind partnership with creative sneaker platform Concept Kicks has resulted in the reimagining of the classic Timberland boot by a crop of global designers including cult designer Jeff Staple; knit-specialist Suzanne Oude Hengel; sneaker designer Helen Kirkum; Dutch creative duo Peterson & Stoop; Dominic Ciambrone of The Shoe Surgeon; VF Corp creative director Alex Dardinski; and Daniel Bailey, founder of Concept Kicks.

Some of these high-caliber names have teamed up to collaboratively push boundaries in footwear design and rethink every step of Timberland's boot-making process. The actual making of the resulting styles took place at Timberland’s Dominican Republic factory, where the Construct 10061 designers worked alongside the resident craftsmen.

 

Here are the first two designs to emerge:

 

Concept: 06

A collaboration between Helen Kirkum & Peterson & Stoop, this boot is crafted from discarded leather scraps, featuring a direct-injection sole made from re-used leather and PU. 31 pairs have been made in this style, priced at $310.

Concept: 20

Several of this season’s creatives were involved in this design – Peterson & Stoop are behind the white leather, while Wavy Stormwelt developed the construction. The stacked sole is the work of David Mawdsley, and Suzanne Oude Hengel designed and developed the padded collar. Nathan Alexander Walker is the man behind the lace-placement. 31 pairs have been made in this style, too, and it will retail for $360.
