New Year, New Boots:
The Chinese New Year Collection

Most people have a whole list of resolutions heading into the new year. Why not add looking your best with a fresh new pair of boots to your list? Cue the Chinese New Year Boot Collection. Inspired by traditional Chinese New Year celebrations in luxe new designs, these boots are sure to kick the Year of the Dog off right.

To create the most authentically inspired boot collection, we collaborated with international award-winning Taiwanese designer Benson Chen. Chen, who spends his time between New York City and Taiwan, has an impressive resume, highlighted by Chinese paper-cutting, product design, graphic design, exhibition design and web design.

The product line features four premium men’s boot designs in varying colorways of rich browns and crimsons - two 6-inch silhouettes and two chukkas - as well as two women’s premium 6-inch styles. Inspired by the Chinese New Year celebration’s traditional hues, the boots have gilded collars with designs honoring Chen’s signature paper-cutting technique. 

Each boot features rich, quality leathers, goldtone hardware and crimson laces and tassels. But don’t let the luxurious nature of these boots fool you:  Like your other favorite Timberland boots, the entire line is waterproof, durable, and ready to take on any adventure in style.
