In presenting its premium Legends Collection for Fall 2017, Timberland partnered with legendary hip-hop recording artist Nas, who brings the monthly drops to life with a series of animated shorts. Each video features Nas voicing the story of his personal journey, from his early struggles in Queens to the moment he was discovered. The first installment, entitled “Trumpet,” accompanies the launch of the Volume VII FlyRoam Leather Sneakerboot, the first drop from the Legends Collection. Sporting a buttermilk nubuck leather upper and equipped with Timberland’s new AeroCore energy system, the hybrid silhouette will be available starting September 23rd.

Look for more video shorts to accompany the monthly drops from the Legends Collection.

November sees the launch of Volume IX, a 6-Inch Field Boot with a velvet collar, followed by Volume X in December, featuring the 6-Inch Premium in boot mauve shadow with a contrasting port collar.
