Officially established in 1978, Timberland became famous for its signature yellow boot, 'Timberland', launched in 1973. Crafted from premium full grain nubuck leather, with thick rubber lug soles, the boots were created with function and durability in mind, with waterproof properties. The boots have since been worn by workmen and celebrities alike, becoming a cult style piece, worn by the likes of J-Lo and Rihanna. The success of these boots lead Timberland to become a worldwide name in outdoor footwear, with apparel and accessories expanding the range. Influenced by their trademark boots and classic Oxford styles, Timberland's range of sneakers offer a relaxed alternative to the more robust boots, for a cool city-chic look.
