Blog/Brand Bible/Timberland Hiking Information
Timberland have never stopped marketing to the demographic which made them successful initially. Having originally gone after the blue collar working market, as well as being based in first Massachusetts and then New Hampshire, it’s almost natural that they would move into dedicated hiking footwear. Over the years, they have delivered countless lines of successful hiking and walking boots, including the now-discontinued Radler Camp shoe, which aimed to save you some precious space in your back by having the shoe fold in half and zip up into a small package:
Our main lines of Timberland hiking boots are the Earthkeepers Splitrock, the Euro Sprint, and the Euro Rock (which we carry in junior and infant sizes). Naturally, all of these have slightly different designs and technological nuances, which you can get a full rundown of the individual product pages. However, here are some features that you can expect to see across the majority of our range:
Timberland have put their years of expertise to use in designing the soles of their hikers. Their soles have lug patterns specifically designed to offer traction in a variety of terrains and gradients, and most are made from their Green Rubber material, which is both extremely hard wearing and environmentally friendly.
Most of our Timberland hikers are made using premium nubuck or full-grain leather from silver-rated tanneries. This means that they are both comfortable and highly durable, and the high quality of the leather means that they won’t require hours of walking to be broken in. Using their injection-molding technique, they seal their boots, meaning most are waterproof. Another crucial feature of the materials used is their weight. Timberland strive to make everything aspect of their hiking boots as light as possible to help you preserve as much energy as possible. And as they’re designed to be able to cope with whatever nature is able to throw at them, it’s only fair that they’re made using ecologically friendly materials. Timberland make extensive use of breathable Gore-Tex membranes which simultaneously keep moisture out of the shoe while allowing the foot to breath. They also use EVA midsoles, designed to help cushion the foot while adding no extra bulk or weight.
All of our hikers come with varying degrees of ankle support, which is vital particularly on long walks or hikes as tiredness sets in and the likelihood of injuries through lack of concentration increases. Timberland use the same soft padded collar that can be found on their 6 Inch boot range, which insures against rubbing and increases stability and ankle rigidity.
Metal eyelets, high quality laces
All Timberland Euro hiking boots come with high quality metal eyelets to provide complete peace of mind. Eyelets made with more fragile materials are liable to break if put under the strain of a difficult trail or knocked against rocks or debris. Most Timberland hiking boots also feature high quality laces made from a combination of cotton and polyester that are designed for durability, making them ideal for hiking.
