Timberland stands behind their product. I had a pair that were 10 years old and developed a problem. I sent them to Timberland and they sent me a new pair. I don't know of anyone else who looks after the customer like Timberland.

Timberlands quality has went to shit. My first pair lasted 4 years. One year as nice casual boots then three years in the construction feild. I was very satisfied. Bought another pair and theyre barely a year old. The stitching has already split and the sole is separating from the upper. It’s disappointing.

I like how I was told to not wear timberlands because im “white” even though the timberland was created by a white person....
Life hack: if u a size 7 and don't want to pay for 190$ for timbs just get a grade school size 7 and grade school timbs are only 110$

Another cool history of lesson. Only problem I have with them is all 3 pairs that I’ve owned were never actually waterproof. Also the sole always separated. I just don’t have luck with work boots I guess

Yo I'm 54 in 1982 we started rockin Herman Survivors just like that. They went perfect with the sheepskins bubble coats and suede front zip up sweaters. I remember the dude describing the Nu-buck to me. I was used to leather and suede and knew this was neither. After a while I realized they were easier to keep clean then suede and nu-buck replaced suede across the board. My first pair of Tims was 86 leather butters. After that DC homeys wore the 40 but called em Super Tims. Then Brooklyn started rockin em then it was over.

Timberland reduced their lifetime warranty to a "1 year warranty" because many people were sending back the 6" waterproof boots because they have a defect that causes rain/snow to leak in the toebox area. Due to that fact ; in my humble opinion it's a bad investment to spend $190 on boots when Timberland warranty will only cover the "waterproof" boots for 1 winter. Even in NYC it's less common to see Timbs; aside from the classic wheats. Also; many clubs,bars,lounges,venues, etc. have a strict "No Timberland Boots" dress code policy at the door in New York City.

Good short verbal history on the timberland boots bro! I the early to mid 1990s in the dirty south only sporting goods stores (like Friedman's) carried tims and it was limited stock! In Nashville we got our knowledge on them from brothers up North who went to Tennessee State and Fisk University

@ cafelogis, thts totally false my man. U didn't need to be a drug dealer to buy nor wear timberland. Dudes wth a sense of fashion made timberlands. Truth b told, construction workers dnt even wear timberlands for there intended use. Timberland boots r now a part of fashion.
Cafelogis (3 months ago)
It's not crazy that a company doesn't want to be associated with drug dealers and thugs, not because they are black people. Currently Fred Perry is facing the same issue with racist alt righters adopting their polo's as a symbol.

Being from Philly you must know about the Reading, PA. Timberland factory outlet. I remember going there in the early 90s when Tims were at their peak in popularity. They used to have a buy one get one not for half off like they have nowadays but for free! There was a line for miles outside the store. I ended having to cop a couple of pairs of the non padded collars because everything else sold out and I didn't want to walk away empty handed after waiting in that line for hours . That's the only time I've ever owned a pair of the non padded collars lol.

Great video, Jeff.! Being from NY and going to college in upstate NY, I have been with the brand since the '70's. Back then, we wore them mainly because they were the best in the inclement weather and elements. It was in the '90's and looking for something to wear while doing anything outside in the winter did I discover that all the younger generation were wearing Tims. It never moved me one way or another that the hip hop and rap crowd wore them, I just thought it was a style choice made better by a quality product. More recently, I was in need yet again of a good hiking boot to wear casually and moved to a Eurohiker. And MOST RECENTLY, I was again looking for something for the winter and found how far Timberlands had moved into the fashion world. Best of both worlds for me. And as an older guy now, I wasn't limited to one pair at a time. Discovered the Limited Releases line and the rest is history.! Have to love a product that grows with you over the years but never loses its character or its roots while doing so.

It could cover style and other things, for example, a coffee table book, a quality chef knife, shaving kit, dopp bag, a bike or car, piece of art, courage, a pet, lip balm, a hat, 2 party tricks, a musical instrument (absolutely anything you deem relevant) without necessarily being specific to any brand.

I grew up on the East Coast...I'm from Delaware, and we literally are sandwiched in between NY, Philly, D.C. and Baltimore. Being that close to 4 major cities, we naturally observed (and copied) everything the cities did...especially in the music, and fashion...everything we did was mostly copied from NY and Philly, because we saw it on BET and where exposed to it via the Hip-hop culture! Being Black and from the East Coast... we ALL naturally had family members that lived in the various cities surrounding us...so you always had exposure to the latest fashion trends via christmas and birthday gifts! So since im a little older now (just turned 40) i will admit...I came up in that early 90's era when tims first started getting popular. Tims were so new and unheard of in a typical clothing store at that time in our area (91-92ish) that my parents never even bought me a pair of tims at that age! I got my 1st Tims in 10th grade (1993) with money I made from working at my 1st "summer job" and also cutting grass on the side! -me and a couple of my friends were the 1st people in my school to have "real tims" and I got mine by giving my Aunt that lived in Philly the money to buy them for me and bring them down when she came to the family reunion! A few years later, the Tanger Shopping Outlets in Rehoboth Beach, DE were built, and one of the first stores that came there was Timberland outlet! -literally less than 5 miles from where i grew up in Lewes, DE!!! From that point on, i used to get multiple pairs of Tims in various colors and leather styles every year to keep the collection fresh! By the late 90's Tims were common in Delaware because of having the Timberland outlet store, they were no longer stuff we only saw on t.v. in "rap videos" like Mobb Deep's Shook One's!!! Now fast forward 20+ years later...and now I have teenaged kids....and Tims aren't as popular as they used to be when I came up, and I don't understand why??? After ALL these years of production...Tims are still damn near the perfect footware!!! Tims will always look good with jeans (especially the butters!) And can be the base of so many outfit combinations! Now I must admit, i was one of those dudes that wore tims in the summer time as well with shorts too! (looking back, that is definately an LOL nowadays!!! 🤣)...but that was the style back THEN!!! -You couldnt tell us we werent the SHI*T!! Back in those days!!! Me and my Wife STILL purchase and rock tims on occasion because its just so nostalgic for our age group!!!...our kids and others their age group don't care too much about Tims anymore, but its one of those things younger shoppers won't understand until they get a little bit older, and THEN...they will realize the history, the dopeness, and the overall SUCCESS of the Timberland Boot! Loved this video Jeff....thanks for bringing back some fond memories of high school! Imma go throw my Tims on with long black basketball socks, listen to A Tribe Called Quest on a walkman with huge Sony heaphones, and watch the Michigan Fab5 documentary!!! Damn those were some awesome times!!! -before we started "Adulting" and being responsiblele grown ups! 🤣🤣🤣 Thanks for this video Family!!!

This is a well-researched and well-constructed video, love it. Been rocking them for 14 years, since I was 3 (genuinely, lmao).

Saluuute Jeff Style OG! That's a perfectly surmised rundown about Timbs. I have been rocking them since the early 2000s in my twenties, and saying the boots are timeless is simply an understatement.

Great video. I had the butters and the mobb deep brown. As a teenager I also wanted the 40 belows (or what we called them in DC) aka da Supa Tims or Drug Dealer Boots but couldn’t afford them till now.

The 40belows are the ones I never got a chance to own Clyde that I wanted as well!
