Best Bet: Splashy Opening Ceremony x Timberland Water Shoes


Opening Ceremony co-founder Humberto Leon has a soft spot for Timberland, a footwear brand he says carried him through high school. O.C. teamed with the company last year to make a heavy-duty work boot with electric-blue laces, and is back again this month with a series of all-weather summer kicks. The unisex shoes are available in sizes 7.5 to 14, and are versatile enough to be worn anywhere — hiking through Van Cortlandt, rollercoastering at Luna Park, or just shopping in Chelsea. The practical side of you will be pleased to know they're made from element-resistant materials like neoprene, mesh, and nubuck suede. Your inner party animal, however, can celebrate the boaters' bold shots of color — visible across multiple subway platforms.
