There are a few brands who have left their mark as iconic fixtures in the fabric of cultural history. For hip hop culture, especially during the 90's, Timberland and their six-inch boot holds this position.
I think this is something to be proud of and when you really dig deeper into why this style was embraced, you'll find a lot of the foundational values that any brand would be proud of – its heritage as a classic American company whose name now represents a certain level of quality and a subtle sense of luxury.
In contemporary fashion, you find the Timberland style also having a resurgence in high fashion, as the lines have begun to be blurred in today's market.
I don't think you can mention the name Timberland and not point to its presence in the culture as a kind of significant accomplishment - the kind you can't fabricate or manufacture, that has to be driven purely by an authentic movement.
