The Timberland boots have become iconic due to their unique design and the use of many advanced technologies. The waterproof Basic Boots are another line in their shoe collection that’s perfect for work and the offspring with their favorite cowboy beanie and jeans.
The nubuck leather looks noble and has its own texture. The metal eyelets and the strong seams contribute to the look. They look good with almost everything, especially denim outfits. The leather can collect stains fairly quickly, but you can use suede and nubuck cleaners to restore the original shine.
The boots are durable, and the direct-attach method has increased this strength even more. In addition, they are sealed at the seam to make them completely waterproof. Rubber soles are unlikely to pull through, but they are heavier than most shoes on this list.
The comfort is surprising. The padded collar provides a soft fit around the ankle, and you can accentuate it with the lace-up lacing system. You can even loosen the laces and fold out the tongue for a pretty cool look. The size is also standard, but Timberland recommends buying half a size over the typical sneaker size.
The thick padding of the midsole and heel feels comfortable. It also absorbs shocks to keep your legs tiring after a long day.
The star feature of the model is the PrimaLoft ECO insulation. It is a dynamic structure that retains heat even when wet. It is a good idea to wear them in cold weather. However, they are unlikely to work well on ice and snow.
The boots are not too flashy, but they do not abandon the use of advanced technologies, making them a solid investment for every worker. Due to the lack of steel or safety tips and the EH classification, they are unsuitable for precarious working conditions, but are suitable for construction sites, trekking and daily use.
