Meet the stylish new sneaker we weren’t expecting this season

Promotional feature with Timberland

Behold the sneaker that everyone’s lusting after right now…

As far as Autumn/Winter 17 footwear is concerned, minimalist sneakers are a wardrobe staple.

We caught up with Scottish model Emma Louise Connolly who revealed her latest shoe find: Timberland’s Kiri Up sneaker. That’s right, the makers of the original yellow boot have launched a sports luxe sneaker that is in hot demand.

‘I like to think I’m pretty relaxed with my wardrobe choices,’ Emma Louise told us. ‘I often wear a statement colour, and like to mix sporty separates with more structured shapes. I’m definitely not one for a short dress and heels – I’d go for flats with a chic blazer any day!’


Of course, everyone from Rihanna to Karlie Kloss has been spotted wearing the classic 6-inch-boot – but now it’s time for Timberland’s #KiriUp sneaker to shine – and you heard it here first.

So whether you take your style cue from Emma and style them with sporty sweat pants or a pair of culottes, or simply want to upgrade your work out wear, you won’t find a sneaker that looks so understatedly cool as these do.

It’s not all about looks though: with breathable neoprene technology, high-impact heel support and a rubber sole, they’re a dream to wear. No stylish wardrobe should be expected to survive Autumn/Winter 17 without a pair – so add to basket now or regret it for the entire season.

Timberland’s new Kiri Up sneakers are available to buy in-store and online now, all that’s left to do is decide which colour way to go for – there’s lots of options but Taupe Grey, Paloma and Jet Black are our top picks. Take our word for it, they’re destined to be the sneaker everyone will be wearing this season. Invest now, wear consecutively for the next 12+ months…
