Timberland brand hiking boots, outdoor clothing and other products for the active outdoors-y type have finally arrived on Laugavegur. The ‘classic Timberland boot’ (rappers call them ‘Timbos’) takes the design of construction worker boots and pads them with materials so fancy that you most definitely don’t want to be doing any construction work while wearing them.
The new store is located at Laugavegur 6, in a quaint little shack. It is indeed the same little shack that used to host Reykjavík’s Nike store before it entered a state of ruin. But that state of ruin didn’t last long, as recent Reykjavík mayor Ólafur F. Magnússon had the city purchase and renovate it in a process that cost around eighty bajillion ISK (give or take). Thanks to his efforts, we now have a Timberland store in Iceland! Well, two. There’s one in Kringlan too.
