With the holiday season in full effect, brands are beginning to go full-on Christmas mode as they gear up to supply patrons with quality items to enjoy this time of year. Showing that they are no exception to the trend, Shinola has teamed up with the Minnesota-bred Northern Toboggan to deliver on, you guessed it, a toboggan. To no debate, their Classic Toboggan blows the average department store’s sled out of the water — and snow.
Taking the old-fashioned route, the two Canada-bordering brands’ collaboration takes shape in an exclusive “Khaki” colorway, equipped with an orange braided rope and a serialized Shinola nameplate. Adding to its novelty, the Classic Toboggan is handcrafted entirely out of Red Oak, making for an elaborate piece of equipment that is sure to maintain its form as opposed to any plastic sleds from your childhood. Measuring in at 64 inches long and 16 inches wide, this toboggan is sturdy enough to secure either two adults or three children at a time, ensuring that the wintertime pastime isn’t dependent on age or weight this time around.
Limited to a mere 50 total toboggans, anybody looking to take advantage of the snowiest time of year in style can look to pay $850 for this handsomely handcrafted sled.
