Fashion trends change every decade—from hair to bottoms to shoes. It seems that contemporary females like to express themselves with big, chunky boots. First Dr. Martens, then Timberlands.
The Dr. Martens 1460 has always been the staple casual boot, but recently, the yellow, 8-holed Timberland boot is providing tough competition. Timberlands were first manufactured as waterproof boots for workmen in the 1970s. Celebrating its 40th birthday this year, Timberland’s shoes can be seen on almost anybody: rappers, hipsters, and even pop royalty.
In the 1990s, Timberland boots gained instant popularity when rappers started to endorse them in music videos and when their ads were played on television. Timberlands became even more popular than Jordan basketball shoes.
People choose to buy these suede boots since they are extremely versatile and can be worn with almost any type of clothing. The simple yellow boot can be worn with jeans, shorts, and even dresses. Customers buy the boots not only because they are fashionable but also because they are durable.
Timberlands are created using strong leather, which is hard and soft in the right places so that wearing the boots does not cause blisters. The boots also come in a variety of colors and are therefore appropriate for both men and women. Whether it is for a walk in the park or for a Rihanna concert, Timberland boots are warm, comfortable, and dependable.
Following the legacy of Dr. Martens, Timberland boots have lit a spark in the fashion industry. Today, they are used as a means of liberating creativity and fueling identities.
