BUILT FOR YOU, BUILT TO LAST
When you purchase a pair of Timberland boat shoes, you’re buying a pair of shoes that are built to last. If you’re always on the move and want a shoe that moves with you and builds in comfort as you wear it, a boat shoe is the perfect option. Our top-rated EVA footbed cushions engineered specifically to absorb shock and withstand extensive daily use. A leather lining provides added comfort and the rubber sole offers great traction and durability. Your boat shoes are also designed to improve with age, moulding to your feet as you wear them in. This is due to the traditional, hand-sewn construction of the Timberland boat shoe which increases the durability of the shoe. Ensure your boat shoes last with premium product care and laces, made by Timberland, for Timberlands.
TO WEAR SOCKS OR NOT?
The most important thing to know about wearing your Timberland boat shoes, is that the only right way to wear them is your way. However, having said that, how best to wear boat shoes has long been a hotly contested topic. One of the most common questions? Should I wear them with socks or not? Technically, boat shoes are actually uniquely designed to be worn without socks. Thus many traditionalist boat shoe wearers will advocate for them to be worn without socks. If you are looking to achieve that classic, ‘old money’ maritime look, its definitely best to opt for no socks or if you feel you have to wear socks, to opt for secret socks. On the other side of the coin, many younger wearers often opt to wear a mid calf sock with their boat shoes. This is obviously a challenge to the convention but it also offers a more unique and ‘preppy’ twist to a classic shoe. This can help to elevate your boat shoes and make them look and feel more modern.
NAIL THE LOOK
The best way to nail that super relaxed, nautical look is to opt for high quality fabrics such as cotton and linen in more classic, neutral and subdued colours. Rolling the hems of your pants to show off your ankle will add to that laid back look. Wear them with secret socks or without socks for effortless style.
