Mens Timberland Boots - The Ultimate in Rugged Fashion Footwear

When it comes to the world of men’s footwear, if you are looking for a killer combination of style, practicability and durability then you must surely look no further than a pair of classic mens Timberland boots. Developers of a range of great solid wearing footwear that is equally at home on the building site, up a mountainside in the great outdoors or keeping you warm and dry on an urban city football terracing – the Timberland brand has established itself as a near iconic name in men’s outdoor wear and as a rugged fashion line that remains as popular today as it ever was.


From the mid 1960s, the Timberland brand has been at the centre of advanced boot making technology and methodology – introducing a ground breaking injection moulding design which allowed for greater waterproofing and greater lastability for the boot. Modern advancements have since given the boots a level of breathability and comfort that is unparalleled amongst similar competing footwear lines including a cushioned sock lining and the boot’s padded tongue provides the wearer extra comfort.

Converse Shoes - Iconic Men’s Style

It is arguable that few footwear brands over the years can claim such an iconic place in the history of men’s fashion and sport than Converse. The Converse brand takes its roots and inspirations from its historical contributions in American sport. In the early years of the twentieth century, the brand designed and manufactured what was at the time considered to be a revolutionary piece of American Basketball footwear – a trainer that remains widely regarded as the first performance shoe specifically designed to be used in the sport.

Today, the brand remains immersed in the world of American sports - and more broadly speaking an iconic brand name in the players, fans and culture of athleticism, popular music and men’s fashion. The Converse All Star and High Tops models still remain as popular as ever – worn by leading sporting figures and top names from the world of music in the USA and Europe. Offering both comfort and style at a relatively affordable price, the longevity of converse shoes is perhaps not surprising – and its distinctive Chuck Taylor star logo is as recognisable across the world as other sports fashion footwear giants Adidas and Nike.
