Celebrate the holiday season and get into the festive spirit by putting your best foot forward. And what better way to do that than by getting a fresh pair of kicks! But you won’t have to go shoe shop-hopping and try dozens of footwear to find what you’re looking for. Why? Because New Balance and Timberland gotchu covered!
New Balance has just released new urban trail running shoes, the ‘ML610T’. The new ML610T is a stylish throwback to the original MT610, which provides modern shapes and design by removing the outdoor inspired upper string from MT610, while maintaining the functionality and technology of the original, which was first released in 2012.
The combination of modern design and functionality will provide everyday utilitarian comfort and style from light hiking, outdoor activities to everyday city life. The first release comes in unisex sizing and brings back the original MT610 colourway (ML610TAA), a supporting colourway inspired by urban lifestyle (ML610TAC), and alongside 3 other colourways (ML610TBA, ML610TBB, ML610TBC).
ML610T features the ABZORB® midsole with excellent shock absorption, that provides excellent cushioning for everyday comfort, along with a N-durance sole, which is a highly effective rubber compound that enhances durability of the shoes for urban trail running. The New Balance ML610T will launch at a suggested retail price of RM459.
The ML610T is available on www.newbalance.com.my and at New Balance’s Pavilion KL, Sunway Pyramid and Mid Valley Megamall outlets. For more, visit their website.
Timberland x Bee Line
Bee Line and Timberland team up for their ninth collaborative project, with a capsule collection that celebrates the past and takes ownership of the future. The iconic rubber toe boot reappears in classic monochromatic colorways, while the apparel juxtaposes Timberland’s work and outdoor heritage with abstract Bee Line iconography by New York-based artist, Shaun Crawford.
Bee Line Creative Director Joe Au reimagines the Bee Line x Timberland® 6″ Rubber Toe Boot (MYR1,039) in tonal Wheat, Black and Red colorways – the red paying homage to the 2014 ‘Crimson’ style, limited to just 300 pairs in the world. Offered in men’s and women’s sizes, these waterproof boots feature premium nubuck leather, boldly updated with rubber toe caps and overlays for added protection in the elements. True to both brands’ dedication to responsible design, they feature TimberDry™ waterproof linings made of 50% recycled plastic and ReBOTL™ fabric linings containing at least 50% recycled plastic.
The accompanying all-gender apparel brings the fresh energy of the city to classic outdoor-inspired silhouettes and features responsible materials throughout. The Bee Line x Timberland® Sherpa Fleece Jacket (RM839) is made of 100% ReBOTL™ fabric, while the New York Hoodie (RM699) and LS Graphic Tee (RM279) are each made of 100% organically grown cotton. The Printed Jacket (RM939) and Printed Pants (RM699), featuring a bespoke Gargoyle Bee Line Bees Print by Shaun Crawford, are also made of ReBOTL™ fabric, containing at least 40% recycled plastic. Capping the collection is the Bee Line x Timberland® Beanie (RM229), made of 60% recycled polyester, 30% acrylic, and 10% wool.
The collection comes to life through an editorial campaign shot in New York City’s Central Park by Aijani Payne – reminding us that we can enjoy the great outdoors in our own neighborhoods and backyards. Sometimes, the outdoors is right at our doorstep.
The Bee Line x Timberland® FW22 Capsule is now exclusively available at Timberland Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and its official LazMall.
