We love the supportive gel insoles and solid stitching between the upper and rubber sole. Improved design has no seam in heel. Waterproof with an imported rubber sole. Nubuck leather resists moisture for a long time, while the padded collar adds comfort.
Fit may be larger than expected. More of a fashion boot than a rugged work boot.
Waterproof seam-sealed construction. Uppers are made of full-grain leather. Tongue is fully gusseted to keep out dirt and debris. Boots have light cushioning and shock absorption thanks to compression-molded EVA midsoles and footbeds.
Some buyers find that the boots scuff easily. They don’t offer much traction on snow and ice.
Very comfortable, with a short break-in period. Extremely waterproof and well-insulated. Great for winter conditions. Good ankle support for hiking. Removable dual-layer inner sole.
Width can be narrow. We suggest ordering a half-size smaller than usual for a better fit. Additional waterproofing treatment may be necessary.
Rugged construction with steel toe makes these ideal for factory floors and construction sites. True to size and width. Stylish enough to wear as a casual boot at home. Goodyear welt construction on sole. Padded tongue for comfort.
Heavyweight, not ideal for hiking or casual wear. Poor arch support. Long break-in period. Supportive orthotic inserts may be needed.
Environmentally conscious construction using many recycled materials. Full-grain leather uppers. Very short break-in period required. Removable anti-fatigue inner sole. Stylish enough for casual wear.
Soles are not durable, as they may separate from upper. Stitching is more decorative than functional. Not waterproof.
Timberland boots are a classic choice – and they’ve also enjoyed a resurgence in popularity. Their iconic 6” Premium is a fashionable option with decent waterproofing, but Timberland has plenty of other boots for men. For hiking or work boots, they have rugged steel-toe options with durable stitching and reliable waterproofing. Many Timberland boots feature padded collars and relatively brief break-in periods for comfortable wear. Any of their boots will look stylish, but their durability may vary. Timberland boots may run a bit large or narrow, and some may require additional arch support. In some cases, orthotic inserts can help achieve the desired amount of support and cushion.
