When it comes to rugged footwear, few silhouettes are as revered as the waterproof six-inch lace-up joints by Timberland. And although we’ve seen countless design iterations of the shoe—from bright pink colorways to woodland camo detailing—nothing quite lives up to the original.
From the signature padded collar and embossed logo, to the recognizable two-toned laces and pull tabs, the timeless components of the boot have allowed it to maintain relevancy throughout the decades—convincing generations that the iconic design couldn’t get any better. But that all changed recently when Timberland decided to drop a handful of updates that didn't compromise the boot’s classic look.
Available exclusively at Barneys, the revamped shoe is noticeably less bulky and features tumbled nubuck material as well as a leather welt instead of the standard plastic.
The changes are subtle, but make all the difference when you’re trekking through nature or pounding the pavement.
