The Timberland® brand outfits consumers for everyday adventure in the city, the countryside and everywhere in between. We deliver quality, finely crafted products that combine style, performance and doing good.
The Timberland® brand believes that boots, shoes, apparel and gear should be comfortable enough to wear all day, durable enough to withstand your everyday adventures, and stylish enough to stand the test of time.
From eco-conscious products and practices to employee volunteerism, the Timberland® brand is driven by a passion to do the right thing and to make a difference in communities around the world.
The Timberland® brand has a long history of supporting communities around the globe. Employees are given up to 40 hours paid time each year to volunteer in the community, leading the company to hit a big milestone in 2014: one million hours served. Now they’re working on their next million.
The Timberland® brand has been making its original yellow boot since 1973. The ultimate expression of the brand’s heritage of quality craftsmanship, each yellow boot undergoes 80 steps in its creation — many still done by hand.
Activating real insights, the Timberland brand tapped into consumer interest in escape and outdoor adventure, and set out on a road trip with four creative individuals at the forefront of style, art and culture. Along the way, the brand will document their travels, explore their crafts and share their personal connections to the brand.
In 2010, the Timberland® brand set out on an ambitious initiative to help reforest Haiti and rebuild its communities. What started as a commitment to plant five million trees in five years grew into something far bigger and far more impactful – the formation of the Smallholder Farmers Alliance, and the establishment of a self-sustaining agroforestry program that creates environmental, social, and economic value for Haiti.

The Timberland® brand holds itself accountable for what goes into its products, as well as how they are made. A big part of that is steadily increasing the use of recycled, organic and renewable materials in Timberland® products. In fact, to date they’ve given about 185 million plastic bottles new life in footwear.
At the heart of theTimberland®brand is service: supporting the communities around the globe where they live, work and play. In fact, in 2014 Timberland employees achieved a major milestone, serving their one millionth hour. (They’re now working on the next million.) How did they do it? By way of the brand’s Path of Service program, which offers employees up to 40 paid hours each year to volunteer in their communities – either on their own, or through initiatives like the brand’s annual global Serv-a-palooza event.
