THE YELLOW BOOT. TIMBERLAND'S CONQUEST OF THE OUTDOOR WORLD
It was a combination of craftsmanship and American ingenuity that produced a very special shoe in 1973: The Timberland. Made for forests and meadows, for the great outdoors and outdoor adventurers. This waterproof, honey-coloured boot was so well received that the Stratham, New Hampshire-based company was renamed The Timberland Company. Since then, Timberland's Yellow Boot has come to be considered a premium shoe among its peers and an inspiration for subsequent boots.
TIMBALAND WEARS TIMBERLAND
The leather boots gained cult status when they became part of the 1990's hip-hop scene and urban culture. Rapper and music producer Timbaland even named himself after the iconic leather boats with the branded logo. Meanwhile, they were made available in numerous colours and designs, yet one thing remained the same: the robustness of these durable boots.
FOR A STRONG STEP
Bad weather? It's a foreign concept for Timberland. Quadruple stitched, the shaft is welded to the rubber sole, equipped with a special support plate and lined with soft glove leather – even the laces remain dry and comfortable. Into nature!
At Blue Tomato, Timberland Boots are an integral part of the (wet) cold season range. Among them, the classics include the 6-inch premium boots for men. They are made of full-grain nubuck leather, while the collar is padded with a double foam layer and the anti-fatigue foot bed guarantees optimal grip.
FOR NATURE'S SAKE
Think green. This motto is just as much a part of making Timberland Boots as the premium leather itself. In 2015, one million pounds of recycled PET and 379 tonnes of recycled rubber, 98 percent of which was PVC-free, were used in manufacturing the shoes. In addition, since 2001, the US company has planted 8.7 million trees worldwide.
