The history of Timberland shoes is the classic American success story of pulling yourself up by your bootstraps - literally. In 1918, Nathan Swartz began a boot-making career as an apprentice stitcher at The Abington Shoe Company in Massachusetts. He started on the lowest rung on the ladder, learned his trade, and through hard work and determination eventually became the owner of the company. Swartz and his sons continued to make shoes and boots for many manufacturers, and in the 1960s they produced the first truly waterproof boots. The innovation came by fusing soles to leather uppers without stitching.
In 1973, the Timberland name was born. Throughout the next couple of decades the range of products produced by Timberland shoes and boots grew to include casual and boat shoes, and then clothing. Every item was - and still is - designed to reflect a rugged outdoor style. Timberland shoes designs footwear to make sure you enjoy every minute spent outdoors.
Since the 1990's, Timberland shoes have risen in popularity and taken on a new urban image. This image has been created and helped by various hip hop and rap celebrities. Still, Timberland shoes and boots will always be functional and useful as trail and hiking wear, and the urban jungle is not the first wilderness that comes to mind when we see a pair of Timberland shoes.
