This week The Shoe Mart is bringing you tons of info about Timberland boots, handing out tips, trivia, and even a pair of Earthkeepers 6-Inch Men’s Boots. Maybe you’ve been following along, and you’ve started thinking that you like the look of these boots, but you don’t know how or when you would wear them. That’s where Work it Wednesday comes in. We browse the net for celebrities, models, and the fashion-obsessed, scan reviews for recommendations, add a bit of our own style advice, and put it all in one place, just for you.  Stay tuned each week for a blog on how to wear our featured style and brand.

Timberland Men’s boots are known for their rugged durability, comfort and classic look. The Earthkeepers line adds a modern environmentally-conscious construction.

Made with anti-fatigue technology for the hardworking Americans that spend long days on their feet, you can wear your Timberlands all day, in the great outdoors or just trekking around the city. So what do you wear them with?

You can pair Timberland boots with khakis or chinos. You can pull the pant legs over the boots and wear a collared shirt for a dressier look. If you want to look more modern, you can also cuff them or tuck them into the boots, or your socks. Trending skinny or slim pants can be worn with the boots laced over them as well. Grab your jacket and take to the streets…

A lot of reviewers state that these boots, like most Timberlands, run large, so you may want to size down by a half or full size. If you need help with sizing, feel free to contact our Customer Service department.

These shoes have great traction in the snow and ice, and Timberland waterproofing is excellent in the snow.

Most of all, wherever these boots take you, you’re never fully dressed without a smile. Between the awesome comfort and style, you’ll have plenty of reason to grin.

 

Tech Tuesday : Timberland Men’s Earthkeepers® Original Leather 6-Inch Boot

FBTimberland

This week we’re giving away Timberland’s flagship Earthkeepers® boot.  Since it’s from their eco-friendly line, the 6-Inch is packed with technology to make it not only comfortable, but easy on the environment as well.

The lining is made from 100% recycled PET, the same plastic used to make soda bottles. It is still, however, comfortable, breathable, and moisture wicking. It can be compared to the quality of virgin polyester. The shoe laces are 100% organic cotton.  The Green Rubber outsoles are made with 42% recycled rubber, reducing landfill waste without sacrificing traction or durability.

Timberland also gets their leather only from tanneries that are rated either as Silver or Gold in environmental sustainability. These tanneries are rated by the Leather Working Group based on their energy consumption, water usage, air emissions, and waste management.

When you consider the technology devoted to comfort, you can take all the Eco-Technology as an added bonus. Pictured above,  EVA Smart Comfort insole includes biorhythmic air channels that push air through interconnected chambers and deliver additional support where and when it’s needed.  It is also leather-lined for comfort and durability. Made on a contoured last, Smart Comfort Biorhythmic is intended to have no break-in period. Timberland’s anti-fatigue technology is made specifically for people who spend all day on their feet, using geometric cone support to provide outstanding comfort while standing, as well as shock absorption and energy return while moving.

When it comes to the latter, socks are a fashion essential not to be overlooked. From a flash of color accent to refined plush comfort, having a great looking and feeling pair of socks can make the difference in your day.  Dressing or undressing, what you put on your feet matters.
