The work boot has emerged not only as a staple on construction sites and workshops, but is commonly seen on city streets, runways, and collection lookbooks. While the boot was attached to a rather controversial collection by A.P.C., the fact that the Parisian fashion brand used the shoes in their collection proves that future fashion-centric collaborations seem more reality than fantasy.

If you have no idea how to wear Timberlands, this is where to start. It's easy to get the look wrong with a pair of pants that are too baggy or wearing an outfit that's too dressy with them. While there are several ways to rock your Timbs—from loose lacing to tongue folding—we're here to show of the best ways to pull off a pair of the six inch staple, and help you care for your boots too.
