TIMBERLAND

The Timberland Shoe Company is an American success story that started with Nathan Swartz from Boston, Massachusetts. Swartz was a determined and hard-working gentleman who worked his way up from an apprentice boot stitcher in 1918 until he owned part interest in the Abington Shoe Company in 1952. Three years later he became the sole owner, and quickly brought his kids on board.

The Abington Shoe Company mostly manufactured shoes for other companies until 1965 when they introduced injection-molding technology to the footwear industry. This innovative technology fused the sole to the leather upper without stitching, enabling the production of a virtually waterproof boot. This waterproof boot gained popularity quickly, and was named the "Timberland." Due to its immense popularity, in 1978, the Abington Shoe Company officially changed their name to the Timberland Shoe Company.

With their roots firmly placed in the rugged boot market, the Timberland Shoe Company started to expand its collection to include casual classics, boat shoes, and eventually, clothing. Everything in the line-up continued to display a commitment to quality, and thanks to the urban fashion community in the late 80s, Timberland began to look equally at home on the city streets as it did in the great outdoors.

Today, the Timberland Shoe Company is still thriving in the footwear market. They even introduced an exclusive collection of boots and shoes appropriately named, the Abington Collection. This heritage collection is rooted in tradition and consists of classic styles with premium leather and suede, exactly what the company was founded on. The limited Abington Collection is only available to a small number of select retailers, including Sneakerhead.com.

With fashion changing constantly and new shoe companies popping up everyday, Timberland has stood the test of time. And, they are not going anywhere. Check out all the selections in the Timberland and Abington Collection today.

These are some serious boots. Waterproof, sturdy leather, great traction, etc. The tongue is stitched to the rest of the boot so water can't seep in.

The shoes look and feel great. They are slightly less pointy looking in person than in pictures. I think they have a nice distinguished look to them.
