So, I kinda thought my blogpost debut a few months ago would be a first and a last, but then we were hit up by the Timberland crew who wanted to feature us [as in the whole family] in their Family campaign, alongside their iconic 6" boot! These super chill urban boots are so good, and I have to say, just as awesome as they were when I got my first pair 22 years ago!  Their leather is solid and beautiful, the fit is comfortable and the soles are great for any terrain, urban jungles, tropical bushland and Norwegian woods. The 6" boot has been a hip hop staple since the early 90's. Pac, Biggy, all them boys were lacing up their Timbs back then, as they are today. This is the same boot that Jay Z wears in 'crazy in love', that Kanye ties with a twist and Wu Tang wore as a staple. But this boots amazing journey didn't begin there, the Yellow boot was first introduced to the world in 1973, when Timberland was established in the US of A.  
"The Timberland 6″ Work Boots – known as Style #10061 to the brand’s employees or by their street monicker “Timbs” – have come a long way since their release in 1973. Originally designed as a hard-wearing boot for New England construction workers, the six-inch high waterproof nubuck shoe has become synonymous with hip-hop style, appearing on the feet – and in the songs – of everyone from Notorious B.I.G. to Kanye West" ~ high snobriety. 
But who wears the Timberland boot in 2017? The market has gotten endlessly wide, and the 6" boot is chic, casual, reliable, classy, comfortable and cool, worn by everyone from workers to super models to fashion bloggers, hikers, musicians and celebrity kids.

Special thank you's goes to Timberland Australia, for this amazing opportunity to feature this iconic boot and thank you also to the beautiful Sarah from Portobello for making this all happen. We had a super nice day in the city and it is soooo awesome to say that our [only] family photos were taken by the one and only super talented Mitch Tomlinson from Life Without Andy. What an amazing team and what an incredible experience for this humble little family from a little coastal town in Australia. 

I hope you will enjoy the interview, and that you will love these captures of all of us in the FWC family.
