Foot Locker and Timberland team up with legendary hip-hop recording artist Nas to present the Fall 2017 Legends Collection – a limited-release series of Timberland® boots available exclusively at Foot Locker Legends Club locations. To bring the new Legends Collection to life, each monthly drop (Volumes VII – X) will be accompanied by a custom animation video short, the first of which launches today on Foot Locker’s YouTube channel. The videos document pivotal milestones in the artist’s personal journey, with Nas telling the stories in his own words, from his early days in Queens to the moment he was discovered.
“Foot Locker is thrilled to be partnering with Nas and Timberland to bring this season’s Legends Collection to life for our customers,” said Jed Berger, head of marketing for Foot Locker. “Nas is a true icon and authentically defines what our Timberland Legends Collection is all about. He elevates the credibility and respect for both of our brands as we introduce new and timeless boot styles to the next generation.”
The Volume VII FlyRoam™ Leather Sneakerboot, featuring a sporty silhouette and creamy buttermilk nubuck leathers, takes design cues from Timberland’s heritage while incorporating modern details like the all-new AeroCore™ energy system. Volume VII (retailing for $150) is available via Foot Locker’s App Launch Reservation in select New York City locations on Saturday, Sept. 23. Volume VII will be available on footlocker.com and in Legends Club locations nationwide on Sept. 30.
The Legends Collection is made with only the most premium materials and Timberland’s legendary craftsmanship. Monthly releases to follow the September launch include: Volume VIII, a 6-inch Premium Strap Boot with an asymmetrical strap and sleek blackout leather, fabric and hardware (October, $160); Volume IX, a 6-Inch Field Boot with velvet collar (November, $175); and Volume X, the 6-Inch Premium in boot mauve shadow with contrasting port collar (December, $190).
