From Small Factory to Global Juggernaut
Behind the vision of Nathan Swartz, a new era in the world of casual footwear was born. Timberland has become famous for providing durable and dependable products in stylish and well-crafted designs. However, Timberland wasn?t always the global juggernaut we all know and love today. In fact, it began in a small factory producing private label shoes for various brands under the name of Abington Shoe Company.
In 1955, Swartz had become full owner of Abington Shoe Company and turned it into a family business by bringing his sons on board. 1965 marks the year when the Swartz family got their big break, and everyday casual footwear took a massive leap into territories never thought possible. It was that year they developed injection-molding technology a fusing process of the soles to the uppers. For the first time the stitching process was gone, and as a result, waterproof shoes were born.
Abington Shoe Company became the creator of the first waterproof boot, which at the time were called Timberlands. The boots were highly praised and their popularity soared. Before long, they became the backbone of the company. The boots were so huge that the company changed its name to what we currently know it as today.
The Urban Effect
Though the popularity of Timberland was steadily growing, it wasn't until the early-mid '90s that the company began soaring into iconic territory. In this time period, hip-hop artists began wearing the boots in music videos, at concerts, and even referencing them in their songs. Notorious B.I.G., among many others famed rappers, was known to frequently drop lyrics about his love for Timberlands. The younger generation recognized the style, comfort, and durability these boots could offer, which resulted in massive growth for Timberland.
As years progressed, Timberland began to expand beyond boots, and into casual shoes, boat shoes, chukkas, and much more. However, despite their success in all type of footwear they bring to the market, the backbone of Timberland to this day remains the 6 Waterproof Boot. Featuring leather or nubuck uppers, the Timberland 6 boot stands up to every day wear and tear, in nearly any condition.
