Giving the traditional Timberland’s product design a unique touch, the GIRI Collection is surely serving the purpose. Urban and contemporary, the new collection is a modern take of the Japanese Samurai spirit on martial art. GIRI means “katana sword cut”, a sword effortlessly slicing through a tatami mat in Tameshigiri (traditional katana testing ritual), leaving an incredibly straight and clean cut. It features a strong showing of minimal wardrobe pieces in colorful palettes, including canvas boots (the YOKOGIRI line) and oversized apparels (the KESAGIRI line).
Available in the Radford 6-inch Canvas Boot style, the YokoGiri Footwear Collection adds durability, flexibility, comfort and lightness to the iconic Timberland boots. The Radford boot is composed of abrasion resistant coated canvas and lightweight Sensorflex™ outsole. With the construction of padded collar and EVA footbed, the comfortability of each steps is further maximized. In the traditional Japanese sword technique, YokoGiri means horizontal cut. This concept can be reflected on the Sensorflex™ outsole which is formed by merging three separate layers horizontally to deliver all-day support on the modern trail.
Splashed with pop colors, the KesaGiri Apparel Collection plays on the contemporary oversized silhouette with modern Timberland tree logo print. In the traditional Japanese sword technique, KesaGiri means diagonal sword cut and it is seamlessly reflected on the unique logo treatment. The collection offers daily wardrobe pieces, including tee, sweater and shirt.
The collection is now available at all Timberland stores and selected departmental stores.
