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.
