“We are proud to partner with Saks Fifth Avenue, a retailer that shares our history of style and commitment to modern craftsmanship,” said Tom Lucas, vice president of sales, Timberland North America. “As part of this debut, Timberland will be featuring our highest-echelon premium footwear collections, and we are excited to see the response from Saks customers, who are known for their discerning taste and appreciation for premium quality and authentic style.”
To celebrate this new partnership, Timberland will launch a pop-up shop at the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store featuring the modern collections.

To share and honor the craftsmanship behind Timberland® footwear, a handsewer from the company’s Dominican Republic factory – where all Timberland® handsewns are made – will be on-site during “Fashion’s Night Out” on the afternoon and evening of Thursday, September 10th and also on Saturday afternoon, September 12th to demonstrate the art of building a premium shoe. The shop, located on the 7th floor, will be open from September 9th – September 20th.
