After teasing the partnership last month, the iconic shoe brand dropped a trailer for their collaboration on Monday, also announcing that the Desus & Mero-designed shoes will be dropping this Friday, November 13.
“Timberland is proud to debut a new footwear collaboration with the creative minds of celebrated Bronx comedy duo, hosts of DESUS & MERO on SHOWTIME and longtime brand fans Desus Nice and The Kid Mero (a.k.a. the Bodega Boys),” a press release from the company reads. “Known for their quick take on current events and unscripted style, Desus Nice and the Kid Mero show off their eye for design in this special collaboration featuring two iconic Timberland® silhouettes: the 6-inch Premium Waterproof Boot and the 6-inch Waterproof Field Boot.”
“The Desus and Mero x Timberland 6-Inch Premium and 6-inch Field Boots are both made with waterproof Better Leather, ReBotl™ linings made with at least 50% recycled plastic bottles and 400 grams of Primaloft® insulation for added warmth,” the release continues. “The collection launches on November 13 at Foot Locker, Champs Sports, Footaction and Eastbay – plus online at Timberland.com.”
The boys certainly have a knack for design too. Mero put his spin on the design by paying homage to the “Beef and Broccoli” colorway of the Waterproof Field Boot. The shoe is covered with graffiti-inspired patterns and also features an ode to one of Mero’s hilarious nicknames “East Tremont Stevie B,” on the tongue of the shoe.
Desus kept his design relatively clean and simple, with black leather accents and tan laces. The shoe dawns a composition notebook style and has both Desus and Mero’s names signed on them.
