With today's chaotic climate shifts, there's no telling when your classy night on the town might be disrupted by flash floods, lava flows, or even something as catastrophic as snow. Get stylish shoes with a rugged edge from Timberland, whose fashion'd-up Timberland Boot Company line's just now available in the US
TBC's footwear channel everything from timeless dress shoes to your high-school clunkerboots, all inflected with touches of the brand's working class roots to beef them up -- just like Timbaland, except they didn't jam needles of deca durabolin in the cow's ass. All the line's materials are at once fine and beastishly durable (leather insoles, wood bases layered on top of rubber outsoles), and everything's significantly distressed via a heavy pre-wear process and cruel comments like "Your mother's a whore". The extra-high Tackhead's ideal for snow-day hoops games, while the Labourer Chukka eschews leather for brawny waxed canvas; you could actually wear the Wodehouse Wingtip Oxford to an interview at Goldman Sachs, and then back to your current job, apprentice ditch-digger
Furthest removed from blue-collardom is the Labourer Cap Toe, a laceless side-zippered affair that few labourers could afford -- until that Super-Tornado hits, and they become Masters of the Loot-iverse.
