The half way point in between formal and street wear.
Jun 12, 2008
Although Timberland boots are made for outdoor activities such as construction, hiking, and camping - this classic six inch boot has become a hit for numerous other consumers such as hip hop artists as urban fashion enthusiast. The most classic boot is the wheat color way, which was the first pair of 'Timbos' that I purchased. They are also available in all black, and all blue. After that, colors seem to like silly and hard to match with. Personally, I always liked the wheat boots the best.
Timberland boots have ranged anywhere from $85-$125, but usually are found right around $100. This is probably due to the demand and brand name, rather than the actual ability and quality of the shoe. Hip-hop artists and the youth have really brought this brand up throughout the years.
The weight of these boots can get a little heavy at times which make them uncomfortable at times, especially if you were to spend an entire day in them. I wouldn't say that these are collector's items just yet - since they are still widely available, but even just one pair of some of these Timberland boots are great to have in the closet ready to go for any fall/winter outfit.
