Timberland may be best known for their iconic yellow boot, which has become a constant fixture in rap videos and construction sites alike, but they do make plenty of other stylish silhouettes. If you like pairing rugged boots with jeans and other casual outfits, you might take a liking to these Timberland 6-Inch Lineman Boots.
If it looks familiar, that’s because it’s based on the silhouette of shoes traditionally worn by electrical workers that climb poles and perform maintenance on power and telephone lines in the early half of the 20th century. And, yes, they should work great for that purpose, although Timberland’s stylish take should leave them functional for other settings, too.
True to its roots, the Timberland 6-Inch Lineman Boots are billed as strong, tough, and abrasion-resistant, making them ideal for wearing in job sites and places where your footwear are likely to be subjected to heavy abuse. They’re also meant to be worn to death, repaired, and brought back to life for further use – the kind of shoes that can serve you for a long period of time. The upper is made from premium Horween full-grain leather that’s both tumbled and hand-stained in a variety of earthy colors.
Poron memory foam material on the footbed provides shock absorption and energy return, all while contouring to the shape of your feet to provide a snug and more customized fit. Other features include a leather-stacked midsole and Vibram rubber lug outsole.
Available now, the Timberland 6-Inch Lineman Boots is priced at $349.99.
