What if I told you Evan Mock, Kristen Noel Crawley, and Cole Sprouse all teamed up to play a part in the Jimmy Choo x Timberland collaboration (1)? Didn’t see that one coming? We didn’t either. The unlikely duo announced September 9th, 2020 that they will be teaming up on a Jimmy Choo and Timberland crossover line of shoes, and heads started turning. At first, the fashion world wasn’t quite sure what to think. Why would a luxury red carpet shoe team up with an outdoor boot? While many critics were not quite sure what to expect, that quickly changed with the release of the full line.
The Unexpected Pair
With the full unveiling of the Jimmy Choo x Timberland line, it was easy to see where each brand added their own flare. Overall, the collab stayed true to a traditional Timberland boot, not straying too far away from its original DNA. Jimmy Choo, however, added their mark by dousing the boots in luxury Swarovski crystals and glitter embellishments. The pair created a line of four colorways including Premium Wheat with Swarovski Crystal Collar, Premium Wheat with Gold Glitter, Premium Black with Glitter, and Limited Edition Premium All-Over Swarovski with Crystal Embellishments – our personal favorite. While no one was quite sure what could possibly come out of this unlikely collaboration, it was clear to see where Timberland stuck to their roots with a tall outdoor boot, and Jimmy Choo came in and made an already great boot into a shiny, crystal covered work of art. Together, the collab exceeded expectations, turned heads from all over the fashion world, and drove sales through the roof with high demand.

So, you may be wondering what Evan Mock, Cole Sprouse, and Kristen Noel Crawley have to do with this? The collaboration was modeled by skater and model of the moment, Evan Mock, known for his iconic pink hair and outrageous street style. He was also accompanied by beauty entrepreneur and Instagram influencer, Kristen Noel Crawley. Together, Evan and Kristen were photographed by none other than Cole Sprouse, actor and photographer. The shot was set in the desert mountains with a series of mirrors which allowed for beautiful landscape shots and interesting angles of the boots. Behind the scenes, however, Cole was able to grab shots of Evan Mock where the angel of the mirror was slightly warped and posted the unused pics from the shoot on his Instagram, tagging Evan in the ridiculous portraits with hilarious captions. This led to a friendly internet brawl, where Evan would repost the pics from Cole with his own sly comments in return. While the pictures from the shoot turned out incredible, we can only image the behind the scenes shenanigans that took place on set.
