History of Timberland
Timberland started in the 1950s in Abington, Massachusetts, under the name of the Abington Shoe Company. It was soon bought by Nathan Swartz who began producing private label shoes for various manufacturers. In 1965 that the Swartz family came up with the revolutionary injection-moulding technology, which helped create fully waterproof shoes, and which has become a huge part of Timberland manufacturing. It wasn’t until the 1970s however that the Abington Shoe Company finally took on the name of Timberland, and the first fully waterproof boat shoes was crafted and sold by them. Over the years their collection has grown, and they’ve collaborated with various brands and artists such has Supreme, Billionaire Boys Club and Jeff Staple. With their iconic designs and unbeatable quality they’ve won various awards over the years and have gained a loyal fan base.
