Timberland’s sneaker-boot hybrid and Gucci’s luxury boot copycat

While this is not the first sneaker-boot hybrid, it is definitely one that has caught our attention. The Timberland “Killington Hiker” is the shoe for the urban dweller. Combining the durability and strength of a boot with the athletic comfort of a sneaker while still looking good.  The shoes come in black, navy, and olive and will be available via Foot Locker European stores and online for about €135. Check out the great lookbook shots of the Killington Hiker.


 

Timberland’s 6” boot is probably their most iconic boot and it likely the reason why Gucci is basically copying the silhouette and placing a $830 price tag on it. The construction of the boot is quite different than the actual Timberland boot and honestly speaking the Timberland 6” boot looks a lot better than Gucci’s boot.
