Timberland is an American manufacturer and retailer of outdoors wear with a focus on footwear. Timberland footwear is popular for hiking, mountaineering, and casual wear (source). For the past couple of decades, a lot of Hip-Hop artists has been seen wearing Timberland boots. I came up with a list of five rappers spotted rocking Timbs. Peep my list and vote who rocked it best below:
Platinum-selling rapper Fabolous was spotted at Adrienne Bailon’s birthday party at SL nightclub in NYC. Loso was wearing a pair of wheat Timberland boots with a Burberry Reversible down vest.
This past June, YMCMB rapper Drake performed at New York’s radio station Hot 97 Summer Jam concert. Drizzy was wearing a pair of black nubuck Timberland boots with a $775 black Versace velour sweatsuit jacket and $450 pants.
