Literally hot on the heels of the release of Nike's Spongebob x Kyrie collection, it’s Timberland’s turn to incorporate Nickelodeon's iconic character into their footwear designs. The SpongeBob x Timberland collaboration includes two pairs of 6” Premium Waterproof Boots, both filled with spongey goodness and clever design details from the celebrated animated series: one in a bright blue colorway and the other in black.


The blue pair is jellyfish-themed, with a nice deep teal colour on the sole and lower part of the boots, and a lighter teal on the upper portion and tongue, and features SpongeBob SquarePants hunting jellyfish equipped with his glasses and jellyfish net on one side, a classic scene from many of the most iconic SpongeBob episodes, while the other side shows Patrick running away from the jellyfish. This pair also comes equipped with a set of pink laces and a keychain of a jar of jelly. With net in hand and glasses on tight, SpongeBob peers over the contrasting white stitching looking down at three jellyfish surrounding Timberland’s debossed logo. A debossed image of SpongeBob replaces the Timberland logo on the tongue. The option of two interchangeable laces allows wearers to keep things tonal with blue or match the jellyfish with a bright pink. A giant jar of jelly keychain replaces the classic removable Timberland branding attached to the shoe.

Depicting another famous SpongeBob scene, the black pair shows Plankton happily running in front of a fresh Krabby Patty printed over Timberland’s logo on the heel. The top two lugs are a contrasting red, while the laces that run through them are a yellow sponge pattern. SpongeBob’s iconic outfit makes an appearance on the dubrae, playing with the scale of the oversized tongue graphic behind it. The tongue is printed over with a graphic of SpongeBob’s face, with his body represented by yellow laces and lace locks that depict SpongeBob’s white shirt and red tie outfit. This pair also comes with a removable rubber SpongeBob keychain completes the shoe.

The SpongeBob SquarePants x Timberland collection recently saw a limited release at Nordstrom, where both pairs quickly sold out, but will be getting a wider release courtesy of Foot Locker on Friday, September 13. Check out both boots below, which will be available in both kid and adult sizes. Prices will be announced closer to their release.

If nautical nonsense be something you wish, then sport this head-turning boot that's waterproof for comfort at the bottom of the sea. PrimaLoft® insulation keeps you as warm as a fresh Krabby Patty, and an anti-fatigue footbed keeps you going for a long day of jellyfishing.
