The Timberland® story began in 1952 when NathanSwartz bought part of the Abington Shoe Company. He learned how to make shoes and began to work on ways to make them better. In 1965, the Swartz family made history by introducing injection molding to the footwear industry; creating the first, truly waterproof Timberland leather shoe.
The Timberland mission is to equip men, women and kids to make a difference in their world. With styles ranging from men’s outdoor boots to urban classic-heritage styles, Timberland offers a shoe for casual and outdoor wear. Moving forward in the women’s fashion world, Timberland now offers shoes, sandals and boots with versatile selections that translate effortlessly from day to night.
Timberland has a rich history which is represented by Abington boots and women’s tall and riding boots. The heritage comes of age with the eco-friendly Earthkeepers™ line that combines Timberland classic silhouettes with a reduced impact on the environment.
Timberland is a big company made up of a lot of small parts and incredibly talented people. They make boots, shoes and sandals that are comfortable enough to wear all day and rugged enough for all year. The people at Timberland don't rest on their accomplishments. If they did, they would have only made one waterproof leather boot.
