Timberland's boots have been popular with many for decades.

Timberland was initially founded as a brand specifically for manual labourers. In the cold and harsh conditions, the boots had to be functional and warm above all - something that still stands years later.

The boots are waterproof and use Premium Timberland® Leather. With a lining of recycled ReBOTL™ material, the brand's focus is also on improving the environment.

From the classic Yellow 6-inch Boot, to the 3-Eye Lug boat shoe - the American brand's innovative designs have become staples in today's fashion world.

The boots are expertly designed for durability with sustainability in mind.

Timberland Technology

Injection moulding is used to make Timberland's leather boots completely waterproof, seamlessly bonding the soles with the uppers in a revolutionary move.

Anti-fatigue technology provides standing comfort, shock absorption, and energy return for all-day comfort.

Greenstride technology introduced new ideas of recycled materials used in the construction of the shoes, and is based on a 75% renewable material produced from sugarcane and natural rubber.

Through the Timberloop program, Timberland also attempts to keep products and materials in circulation for as long as possible, breaking down used products and recycling materials to reduce waste and environmental impact.

The widely acclaimed "The Original Timberland® 8-inch Boot" was launched. The boot was designed primarily for workers in and around New England. The sturdy silhouette was a great success, so too with non-workers.

In the same year, due to the success of the boot, Swartz changed the name of the company. The Abington Shoe Company was renamed Timberland.

The successful Timberland® 8-inch Boot received a new variant; the 6-inch Boot. The pair came with a lower collar and was an even greater success than its predecessor.

Timberland boots were originally tested in a toilet!
