Bursting onto the scene in 1973, Timberland began with just one shoe: the waterproof 6" Premium Yellow Boot. Since then, the line has extended to include an extensive variety of options for men, women, and children. But this success didn't happen overnight. Thanks to the dedication of founder Nathan Swartz and his children, the Abington Shoe Company has grown into the Timberland brand we know and love today.
After making incredible growth over the years, Timberland now spans three continents and outfits everyone from the outdoor thrill seeker to the city dweller. Using only reputable manufacturers, Timberland ensures all products are not only made to last, but are made under fair and safe conditions. The company has even gone so far as to create the Timberland Sustainable Living Environment Program, in which a team visits overseas factory workers and managers to ensure that basic needs are being met. It is this commitment to quality that has led to Timberland's continued success and achievements. On top of countless nominations and many awards – including the latest in 2015, for Best Mainstream Men's Footwear Brand of the Year, presented at the Drapers Footwear Awards in London – Timberland has made a name for itself in the realm of community involvement. From rushing to provide short-term relief for the 2010 Haiti earthquake victims to setting up programs stateside and offering employees days off to volunteer, Timberland has shown that they are a boot company with a conscience.
In the midst of aiding communities, Timberland has maintained its commitment to producing quality, fashionable products, like their line of men's boots. In the beginning, Swartz wanted to outfit the hardworking man by creating a boot that would work as hard as him. Although the company never expected their outdoor shoes to take off as a fashion statement, their popularity on the hip-hop scene pushed for a different way of branding these boots. As a result, Timberland boots can now be found on everyone, from hikers to students to businessmen. They have created a blend of function and fashion to suit any need, and with over 30 models of men's boots on Eastbay's site alone, it is easy to find the right fit for any situation. While the original 6” still sells remarkable well, the Euro Hiker, Field Boots, and Britton Hill Boots have all found their niches, thanks to their comfort, range of colors, and tough exteriors.
Eastbay is proud to carry a large selection of quality Timberland boots. Check out our line of men's Timberland boots today.
