Timberland is famous for its utilitarian footwear and arrived on Oxford Street in 2016. Alongside the brand’s iconic yellow boot, discover a full lifestyle range of footwear and accessories for men, women and children. The 90 square-metre store is also home to a cobbler station to help you care for your Timberland shoes and boots and the Design Your Own service to fully customize a pair of boots, boat shoes or hiking boots to your taste and add a monogram.
The brand was founded in 1952 in Boston, USA, as a shoe company for the workwear industry. In 1973, founder Sydney Swartz invented the original yellow boot. Sturdy and waterproof, it was an instant hit with outdoor workers in wet and snowy New Hampshire and became a symbol of the “all American” look. In the 90s, hip hop artists adopted the boots into their wardrobes, catapulting the look onto the global stage and transforming the boot into a fashion icon. Not just a favourite with the hip hop community, Timberland boots have grown to be a style staple of anyone who favours comfort and practicality while looking good, no matter your aesthetic.
The Timberland Oxford Street store is dedicated to their lifestyle ranges, though the company still makes work boots as one of the best quality options out there. The in-store choice includes chukka boots, sandals, Chelsea boots, boat shoes and hiking boots as well as backpacks, hats, scarves and gloves, each made with the same care to quality and practicality. A 10% discount for students is also available at the store.
