Timberland's beginnings date back to the 1960's, when the Swartz family introduced the injection-molding technology into boot-making that would revolutionize the footwear industry. This new way of connecting leather uppers to their soles without stitching allowed for extremely waterproof and wearable boots. A brand was built around the water-resistant technology, and the name 'Timberland' was brought on to the stage in 1973. Headquartered in Stratham, New Hampshire, the company soon added boat shoes to their line, and has since expanded into producing a whole range of quality outdoor products.
Timblerland values more than it's products. In 2007, the company was named by CNN Money's 'One hundred best companies to work for' list as the 78th best employer in the United States. Timberland is also a leader in corporate social responsibility, setting a new environmental standard for the industry.
Timberland is the obvious choice for travel, hiking, mountaineering, or fashionable casual wear. The companies' product line now extends into watches, luggage, and an extensive range of apparel. Their reputation for comfort and practicality has not forgotten fashion sense and style. Timblerland never fails to deliver a solid product range perfect for people on the move.
Timberland boots are famous for their durability and ability to resist the most rugged environs. Check out their Earthkeeper Leather boots, manufactured to make a smaller environmental impact with recycled materials and organic uppers. Be prepared for your next epic hike in the Chochorua Trail hiking boots, available in both Women's and Men's styles. Stay warm and dry in the Flume Waterproof mid hiking boot, a solid choice for short hikes or longer multi-day ventures. Also from the Eartkeeper line, the Rugged Street 2 Chukka shoes are not only a fashionable choice, but a responsible one, as they feature Green Rubber outsoles made from recycled rubber.
