Timberland Men’s Earthkeepers 6″ Lace-Up Boot

I have been testing the Burnished Brown Timberland Men’s Earthkeepers 6″ Lace-Up Boot for quite some time now.

Description:

When a leather boot looks this good, it’s hard to resist. Our flagship Earthkeepers® men’s boots are back and better than ever this season, made with recycled/sustainably sourced materials. We haven’t sacrificed quality or rugged good looks to make these boots eco-conscious, either – their classic style and durable performance will speak for itself over seasons of wear.

Details:

  • Premium full-grain leather from a tannery rated Silver by the Leather Working Group for its improved water, energy and waste management practices
  • 100% recycled PET lining made from recycled plastic bottles is comfortable, breathable and eco-conscious
  • 100% organic cotton laces
  • Removable anti-fatigue footbed provides all-day comfort and support
  • Durable Green Rubber™ lug outsole made from 42% recycled rubber provides durability and maximum traction on any surface
  • Imported
  • Water resistant

Caution: my experience was not the same as some other reviews.  I noticed in the reviews that the soles and tongues come apart due to inferior glue.

I love these boots for what they are.  The first time I put them on, I didn’t feel that I should even wear them because they didn’t look aggressive enough for what I would put them through.

If you take a look at the tread, you will see that it is a basic work boot tread, because it was designed for environmentalist workers that are on their feet all day.  Because of this, they are extremely comfortable and lightweight.

I found myself wearing them A LOT because they are so comfortable and they look so darn good.  I use these boots as dress shoes all the time, and even decided to go hiking in them a few times.

Because the loose fit, they are great for casual walking and good for hiking for a mile or two, but after that you will start getting foot fatigue.

These boots are comfortable right out of the box and require no break in period to feel good.

I also think these would work as a decent pair of boots if you are wearing them for everyday use, and find yourself bugging out with them on.

Final Thought: If you want a dressy, comfortable, everyday pair of boots, that dress up or down, and although not intended for it, could be used while trekking in an emergency… these are some awesome boots.

Amazon reviews showed inferior glue used for soles

My experience so far has been a little different

Tread is a basic workboot tread

They are very comfortable and lightweight right out of the box

To the point that I decided to try them hiking

You will get a bit fatigued in them

Look awesome, easy to dress up or down

If you are not set on bugging out, but wear these as an everyday wear, I think they will do you well in an emergency

Final Thought: If you want a dressy, comfortable, everyday pair of boots, that dress up or down, and although not intended for it, could be used while trekking in an emergency… these are some awesome boots.
