Continue on to get more details on the upcoming Yungen and Timberland new arrival Brooklyn Sneaker…
CelebNFashion247.com reports that the footwear specialist has partnered with the Platinum-selling London rapper to create the Yungen x Timberland retro-inspired trainer.
The Timberland Brooklyn Sneaker is made for the “restless city dweller” and focuses on the owner’s “freedom and durability.”
What we know about the Brooklyn Sneaker is that its a lace-up oxford in mix materials which features a premium soft suede and full rip-stop fabric with an aerocore midsole.
The brand has also released ‘The Green Room’ a video set in the tropical greenery of London’s Barbican Centre – a performing arts centre in the Barbican Estate of London and the largest of its kind in Europe – featuring the British rapper and his track ‘Myself’ from his newly dropped ‘Project Purple’ album.
Here is what Yungen had to say about teaming with Timberland collaboration and what it means to him.
Like most Londoners, I’m always moving, so the Brooklyn sneakers match my energy. It’s good to escape sometimes, to take a minute and clear your headspace. Having these amazing green spaces across our city that give us the space to be free, we’re lucky to have them.
Growing up in London really influenced my music. It’s a real melting pop of cultures and people- so even though I grew up in a house where reggae was the staple, I’d go outside and hear Asian music or Afrobeats- which have all played a part in shaping my ear as a musician.
I grew up in South London- so Brockwell Park was always the meeting place for me and all my friends. It’s a huge space and just reminds me of growing up and playing football.
