Timberland Taking Inspiration From Classic Comfort

Renowned footwear designers Timberland have combined GreenStride comfort soles and Regenerative Leather in two classic silhouettes, pairing heritage from the past with eco-innovation and progressive style for today.

Inspired by the 3-eye lug handsewn boat shoe design, the GreenStride Ray City EK+ Boat Shoes and GreenStride TBL Originals Ultra EK+ Boat Shoes combine classic boat shoe uppers with the rugged GreenStride boot soles first introduced last year.

Best known for its original yellow work boot introduced in 1973 to take on the harsh elements of New England, Timberland remains based in New Hampshire, but has become a truly international apparel designer with additional design centres in Stabio, Switzerland and Shanghai, China.

Timberland’s iconic 3-eye lug handsewn boat shoes have been crafted and ready to go since 1978. For the spring summer season, Timberland has brought GreenStride comfort soles and Regenerative Leather to two classic silhouettes.

At the heart of the Timberland brand, says the New Hampshire-based company, is a vision for a more green and equitable future. Timberland brings this goal to life through a decades-long commitment to make products responsibly, protect the outdoors, and strengthen communities around the world.

For example, GreenStride comfort soles are made using a 75% combination of renewable sugar cane and rubber from trees, making them naturally lightweight and comfortable. ReBOTL fabric linings contain at least 50% recycled plastic, while EVA-blend foam midsoles add extra cushiony comfort. And as part of Timberland’s Earthkeepers Edition, these styles are made using Regenerative Leather, sourced from farms whose agricultural practices help improve soil and restore the environment.
