WELCOME TO HALF A CENTURY, WELCOME TO COLOURBLAST 

We know that your shoes are an extension of your personality.
 
For over five decades, Timberland has been crafting footwear that’s not just about style but about embracing life’s journeys. We started back in 1973 with a vision to create boots that are tough enough to explore nature's wildest terrains yet stylish enough for city streets. And now, as the year 2023 comes to a close, its finally time to celebrate our 50th Birthday with a collection that truly celebrates a world of Timberland diversity and encourages creativity. When it comes to Timberland, your boots are more than just boots, they’re your canvas and an invitation to celebrate your individuality. 
 

FIVE DECADES OF ICONIC BOOTS 

 

From the iconic yellow boot to innovative collections that blend sustainability with style, Timberland has been a symbol of quality, durability, and outdoor adventure. Our commitment to crafting footwear that stands the test of time while reducing our environmental footprint has been at the core of our journey. 

 

  
 

A COLOURFUL FUTURE: COLOURBLAST

The Timberland Colorblast collection celebrates our 50-year journey with a signature Timberland combination of style and substance. They're not just stylish – they're comfy, durable, and available in a rainbow of colors to suit your personality and outfits.

A collection that reimagines a true icon, colourblast introduces an electrifying range of colours that revitalise a classic. A bold boot deserves an even bolder colour way and the true ability to express yourself without having to say a word. 

Beyond the stunning colours, our Colorblast boots boast premium features. Crafted with top-notch leathers, they blend durability with comfort. Plus, they’re waterproof, ensuring you're ready for anything, no matter the weather. The eco-friendly PrimaLoft® Eco inside means that they’re perfectly insulated and ready to keep your toes toasty when it gets cold. The signature lug sole provides both traction and durability.


HOW TO STYLE THEM

Well that’s something that we just can’t tell you! Versatility is the name of the game for this collection which is designed to offer the opportunity to let your personality shine through. Just like our classic boots, these are designed to be worn and loved. Pair them with anything from jeans and a simple t-shirt to a dress, skirt or even a classic suit.
