Rarely can you find two shoe brands more opposite than Vans and Timberland: one best-known for its sleek, stylish skateboarding shoes, the other renowned for sturdy, chunky boots. Yet somehow, the collaboration between the two brands has created a strange sort of magic in the form of the Vans Skateboarding x Timberland Half Cab Hiker.
The shoe is modeled after the Vans iconic Half Cab shoe, fused with elements that make Timberland’s Euro Hiker a best-seller. Features include: cold-weather insulation in the form of the ReBOTL lining (50% plastic), solid 5/8-cut upper, canvas and premium leather, padded leather collars, dual iconography displaying both brands’ logos, and an aggressive rubber lug outsole. It’s the best of both brands in one gorgeous, trendy, and ultra-tough pair of shoes. A 6-inch boot is also available.
