Rugged Olive Work Boots

These Exclusive Timberlands Have a Complementary Camouflage Accent

— November 7, 2016 — Fashion
A footwear retailer that's based in Tokyo, Japan called Kinetics recently designed a pair of exclusive Timberlands in time for winter.

Utilizing the brand's classic '6" Boot' model, Kinetics adapted the sleek suede upper with a deep olive tone. This is carries throughout the entirety of the stylish waterproof work boots -- from the laces down to the thick supportive soles. Contrasting this slightly are gold rings that hold the laces in place. In addition to this, the cuff of the exclusive Timberlands is diversified with a camouflage pattern.

Here, the usually dark leather is swapped out for a softer material, which helps Kinetics' design to stand out from the many adaptations that 6" Boot has seen as of late.
