Great quality for the price! I bought these for around $90 USD and I have been using them regularly for almost three years. Well made of durable materials, lightweight, comfortable, and waterproof up to the laces.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Comfortable
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Cosmetic damages quickly
  • Only 6 inches tall
  • Soft soles

Bought these before hiking Eagle Rock Loop in Arkansas. Reasonably priced, on sale for around $90. Fit great right out of the box, I bought size 13 which is my normal shoe size, formed to my foot quickly.

I wore them for about two weeks to break them in before making the 30+ mile ERL trail. Had no blisters at all, wore regular cotton socks. They are very comfortable even with no special insoles or socks.

The soles are a bit on the soft side, not the best for hiking on sharp rocks all day. The rubber soles were scarred and scratched quite a bit after the first few days of abuse on rough terrain. Only 6 inches high, but still has decent ankle support.

They are waterproof up to the laces, above that only water resistant. Still, I was able to cross most streams and creeks without having to remove them. Great traction, soles have an aggressive grip that worked well in soft soil and on wet rocks. Not extremely insulating, but they are leather, so my feet have never been cold wearing them in 30°F temperatures. Never worn in snow. 

Three years and never had to do any repairs on them. Same laces and hardware they came with. Easy to take off and put on quickly, about as easy as can be expected with regular lace-up boots. They have serious cosmetic damage now, three years later but no problems with functionality. Soles are worn but still have some tread. 

Great buy, would buy again.

I bought two pairs because I liked the fit and they are waterproof.
Both pairs are not! After walking in the rain for an hour, they are soaked right through. Second pair also soaked through next day while the first pair was drying.

Pros

  • Nice fit
  • Good price

Cons

  • NOT waterproof, not even resistant

I thought with the Timberland name that the waterproof label would mean they would be waterproof. They are not and in the rain (West Coast) the boots did not hold up. My socks were soaked through.

Background

My Goretex trainers were much better than these Timberland boots.
