Established in 1975, Timberland creates high quality, durable outerwear, with a focus on footwear. Debuting its range with a waterproof leather boot, the brand has come to be associated with versatile and dependable footwear made to withstand outdoor pursuits. However, the company's line of shoes have long since been utilised past their functional intentions to gain an iconic status within the fashion world, with the original yellow boot becoming a fashion classic and status symbol, worn by everyone from J-Lo to Rihanna. Now their range includes a variety of styles, including fleece-lined ankle boots, chukka boots and knee-highs.

How To Care For Your Timberland Boots
Timberland boots will last longer if they are looked after properly. The brand’s boots are simple and easy to clean.
- You will need to remove any excess dirt before gently wiping with a warm washcloth to remove stains
- Select the appropriate cleaner to match the material your boots are made from, including the brand’s Renewbuck Suede and Nubuck Foam Cleanser and the Boot Sauce Cleaner
- Apply your chosen product with a sponge and clean the boot in circular motions
- Finish by brushing them to restore the original appearance
- Wash laces separately and re-lace to keep your shoes looking newer
- We recommend using a protective spray on new boots to prevent watermarks and stains, as well as extending the life of your shoes.
- Are Timberland boots good?
Highly durable and built to last from leather sourced from environmentally-friendly tanneries, Timberland boots are a worthy investment. With Anti-Fatigue Technology that delivers exceptional standing comfort, shock absorption and energy return, as well as some styles with Primaloft ECO insulation and waterproof features, Timberland boots are a reliable option for all-day wear.
- What are Timberland boots made of?
The brand’s signature yellow boots are made from premium materials such as nubuck leather, hard-wearing full-grain leather or smooth suede. The material you choose will depend on when and where you wear your boots. Suede looks and feels luxurious, yet is not robust enough for workwear. Timberland boots made from heavy full-grain leather may be tough and hard-wearing, but there are smarter options for the office.
Timberland uses leather that is sourced from LWG silver or gold-rated tanneries, to ensure the best environmental practices are followed.
- How can I tell if my Timberland boots are real?
Genuine Timberland boots will come in a branded box made from recycled materials. All boots are known for their high quality finish, and you should check that the logos and tags are spelt correctly and inspect that the stitching is neat and uniform.
You can verify the style on Timberland’s website, checking that all details and features are correct. Authentic Timberland boots are sold by Timberland retail and outlet stores, as well as authorized department stores, retailers and specialty stores.
