British designer Christopher Raeburn’s eponymous label has set a high standard for sustainability in fashion. On that note, he’s also set a lofty benchmark in the style department. Moreover, the brand’s latest planet-friendly collaboration is courtesy of Timberland, as the two have unveiled the rugged TimberLoop Utility Boot.
Considering TimberLoop is Timberland’s eco-innovation platform, it only makes sense to come together with a brand a designer as eco-cognizant as Raeburn. To fully showcase this mission statement, the new boot has a removable stretch knit sock bootie comprised of nothing but ReBOTL fabric — the product of taking non-biodegradable plastic, shredding it, and turning it into yarn. Additionally, it sits on a responsibly-made natural rubber compound and features an upper made of Better Leather from a Silver-rated tannery.
For enhanced comfort, the boot boasts an OrthoLite footbed that contours to your shape and an EVA midsole for an ideal, lightweight feel. The new release is available in a chic Balsam Green colorway and a blacked-out look that are beyond ready for a day in the outdoors. It’s worth noting that this is not the first time these two brands have come together, as they have collaborated on several other handsome, utilitarian-styled silhouettes, too.
Raeburn’s TimberLoop Utility Boot is available on the brand’s webshop for $210.
