A short history of Timberland
The roots of this American shoe manufacturer go back to the post-war era. Nathan Swartz was a shoe-maker who spent two decades making custom footwear, with his shoes’ waterproofing being a key factor in their success. In 1973, he launched the Timberland and its weatherproof boots which were designed to repel water effectively. The name emphasizes the shoes’ suitability as outdoor wear, recalling the forests and the great outdoors. After just a few years, Timberlands were a massive sales hit in the USA, as a result of which, Swartz renamed his business and to The Timberland Company.
Due to the company’s continuing success, the label became well-known in Europe and worldwide during the eighties. The traditional range of waterproof Timberland shoes was complemented by additional clothing and accessories, and the brand continues to offer a comprehensive selection of outdoor wear. The lacing used in the boots continues to be a hallmark of the brand, though other boots and everyday footwear are also available with an authentic Timberland label. Since the start of the millennium, the brand’s shoes and other fashion items have been firm fixtures in the hip-hop scene. Starting in New York, Timberland shoes successfully conquered the hip-hop subculture and you can no longer imagine contemporary streetwear without them.
What makes Timberland boots so special?
Over the decades, the company has remained faithful to its quality standards, even though a large proportion of the shoes are no longer worn in the great outdoors. As such, thick, high-quality leather is used in urban fashion footwear to create a tough and hardwearing companion for daily life. Thinner versions allow you to enjoy a closed shoe that leaves a great impression when you hit the clubs in the evening thanks to raised heels and a stylish look for men and women that was previously only available elsewhere.
If you would like to wear your Timberland Boots or during a trip to experience nature, you’ll continue to find a huge selection of suitable models and collections. The strong laces firmly hold your shoes around your feet and are up to the job of overcoming any obstacle you might encounter in the wild. With a deep, cleverly formed profile, you’ll get a secure grip on almost any surface while looking after your feet and ankles. Thanks to the wide variety of styles, from authentic hiking boots to light leisure shoes, you’ll find suitable Timberland footwear for any conceivable use and now you can even buy Timberlands as loafers or slip-ons without the brand’s hallmark laces.
