Betabrand & Timberland Launch Craftletic™

Web-Wide Boot Brainstorm Now Underway At Betabrand.com

Big footwear and apparel brands like Timberland have always kept the product-design process shrouded in secrecy: Designers and merchants hash out the details in private, then unveil thoroughly baked concepts to customers the world over.



 Today, however, Timberland is piloting a more open approach to design, inviting fans to co-create a new line of footwear at Betabrand.com.

Shoe aficionados can now invest themselves in the entire design process —  from sketch to fabrication to crowdfundable prototype — and actually help shape their next pair of shoes.


“Partnering with Betabrand gives Timberland the opportunity to engage consumers in a dialogue in a truly innovative way and test new design concepts in real-time, from their infancy through to creation,” said Jay Steere, Senior Director Timberland Innovation Lead.



Last week, Timberland launched 12 concepts on Betabrand.com.  Now, after seven days of fan voting and feedback, they've been narrowed down to three design directions.  
 
 
 Fans will have through March 18 to pick their favorite styles, then Timberland will rapidly prototype them for crowdfunding on Betabrand.com. 

 

“Timberland is the largest lifestyle brand we’ve ever collaborated with,“ said Betabrand CEO Chris Lindland, “and we’re excited about the impact our crowdsourced design process can have on their footwear.
  

“Together, we’re creating an innovative model that gives new meaning to the term ‘fast fashion’, using a brief crowdsourcing period to inform design decisions and bring new products to market faster than ever before.”
