Born in 1978 when Abington Shoe Company became The Timberland Company, Timberland is synonymous with high quality, durable outerwear, in particular, its signature yellow boots. With a rich New England heritage, the footwear and apparel is created with durability and comfort in mind, to withstand outdoor activities. In 1973, the 'Timberland' was introduced, a yellow boot created from premium full grain nubuck leather, with thick rubber lug soles, which has since been worn by everyone from workmen to Rihanna. The brand now offers a range of apparel and footwear which are versatile enough to be worn for both outdoor pursuits and for fashion. Showcasing the brand's New England heritage, Timberland's range of scarves feature classic checked and striped designs, in a range of soft-touch fabrics.
