I’m Smizing with Timberland

Share this post:

True story: over the summer one of my neighbors stopped me at our local bank branch and said he saw me modeling in magazine and then proceeded to tell me I should be living in a fancier neighborhood (L-M-A-O). It’s been this running joke the last few months with him calling me a model and me profusely telling him I’m soooo not a model. But then what would he make of seeing these images of me using my ninja skills to stay on top of this bench in Battery Park where it looks EXACTLY like I’m modeling boots for Timberland?

I’m of course not a model, but I did get to participate in a really cool shoot with Glam Network and Timberland along with my buddy Eileen from Miss Whoever You Are (who really SHOULD be a model).

Not gonna lie—since my mind is perpetually stuck in the 90s, I thought I’d be wearing those ubiquitous tan boots we all loved back then. I was sure they were going to dress me in a red and black lumberjack—with the hat to match. But then they told us we could wear our own clothes to go along with our Timberland boots—and what’s more Danielle than moto jackets and camo pants?

I mean, she gives you smize

She gives bright-white smile…

And um, how cool are my boots though? They’re the EARTHKEEPERS® Mount Holly Leather and Fabric Lace Duck Waterproof Boot. I caught a really nasty cold and was sick as a dog during this shoot (Fashion Week flu combined with international travel) and it was a little nippy out, but these boots kept my feet SO warm and toasty. And as winter boots that fight the elements come, they’re very stylish. Can’t you just see yourself climbing the Mount Everest-sized snow piles that tend to decorate NYC sidewalks in these? And since they’re waterproof good luck getting your socks wet (ugh, don’t you hate it when that happens).

Full deets on the boots:

• Premium waterproof leather and fabric upper is finished for durability and long-lasting wear
• D-ring lacing system for a customized fit
• 30% recycled PET fleece lining made from recycled plastic bottles is warm, comfortable and
environmentally conscious
• Aluminized in-sole board increases warmth by reflecting radiant heat back toward the foot
• Anti-fatigue removable footbed provides all-day comfort and support
• Internal TPU shank for torsional rigidity
• Green Rubber™ (42% recycled rubber) lug outsole for durability and improved traction on any
• Shaft Height: 27cm/10.”
• Sizes: Medium : 5-10,11
• SRP $170

So after the shoot we were allowed to keep a pair of boots. I chose the sleek dark brown EARTHKEEPERS® Bethel Buckle Tall Zip Boot, but now I’m kinda kicking myself for not getting the duck boots I wore in my shoot. And while I’m at it, I’m loving this Earthkeepers® Insulated Mid-Length Down Jacket:

I mean, I really want a faux fur hooded parka for winter. But then there’s also this Earthkeepers® Long Quilted Down Jacket:

I love a good hooded coat (especially with that dreaded wind chill factor). Both look super warm and are under $200. Come to mama…

Have a look at the Timberland site and tell me would you wear any of the new styles! We can have a fashion party down in the comments section.
