A pair of Timberland boots by Shayne Oliver of Hood By Air and Swarovski is up for auction. And the classic six-inch boots aren't like anything you've seen before. Featured along the side and the back are huge Swarovski crystals, in case you know, you want to flex.
The boots were made as part of a new collaboration between the jewelry brand and nine Swaroski Award for Emerging Talent nominees, which includes Oliver. Each of the nominees—Todd Snyder, Rosie Assoulin, Wes Gordon, Marc Alary, Tim Coppens, Christopher Peters and Shane Gabier of Creatures of the Wind, Jennifer Fisher, and Irene Neuwirth—designed their own crystallized pieces, all of which are on display at Kirna Zabête, a boutique in SoHo. The partnership celebrates Swarovski's 13th anniversary.
It's only fitting that Oliver designed a pair of Timbs, explaining that he got his first pair when he was 13 years old and still wears them to this day. "I believe they have stood as a good luck charm for me in my fashion trajectory," he said.
The estimated value of the boots are $500, with the starting bid at $200. You have until 7:00 p.m. EST on June 2 to try to get your hands on these. So, get to bidding if you're a size 10.5. All proceeds from the sale with benefit Free Arts NYC, a non-profit organization that provides underprivileged children with educational arts and mentoring programs.
