Timberland is creating a limited line of boots endorsed by the ex-Beatle Ringo Starr. These 75 pairs of boots, dubbed Earthkeepers, will bear an autograph from Ringo himself and will only be available in his shoe size (8).
These boots are made of Bionic Canvas, which is a type of yarn created from cotton-wrapped strands of recycled plastic from soda bottles. This combination makes the textile much more water-resistant, durable and environmentally friendly.
An auction for these shoes will begin on December 1st, 2011 at 9pm EST on eBay. The proceeds of the auction will be going to WaterAid, a charity dedicated to providing clean water to the poorest countries.
