As Biggie himself pointed out on Suicidal Thoughts,"Doesn't make sense goin' to heaven with the goodie goodies/Dressed in white, I like black Timbs and black hoodies." Since the birth of hip-hop, Timberlands have been the ultimate in from-the-woods-to-the-block accessories and while most rock the tan originals, true G’s know black is best. For Biggie and Co., Timberland is offering an update on their dark boot: the Helcor Premium Leather edition. These urban-minded boots are made of reptile skin-patterned leather that’s been treated against heat and abrasion for an ever-fresh look. Yes, Biggie’s dead—don’t let his sartorial legacy die with him. [price TBD; timberland.com]
