I have several items of clothing from Timberland including a pair of extremely comfy shoes, a waterproof jacket and some other items and i have to say i would recommend Timberland everytime when looking for outdoor clothing. Although their products do appear slightly on the expensive side they are worth every penny. Both me and my husband have a pair of Timberland gortex shoes and we love them, they are comfortable, robust and does exaclty what it says on the tin, keeps out the water and leaves your feet feeling cosy and comfortable even after a long walk. All of timberlands clothing i have found is very well made and protects you against all weathers. The items are also very fashionable, not like some outdoor wear clothing that you could only really wear for hiking, timberland can be worn any where any time and you would still look good. They also have a very wide range of clothing to fit with all ages.
The Timberland logo also stands out on all of their products so people can easily see you are wearing a fashionable branded piece of clothing.
I have never had any problems with any Timberland products lasting only a few months, my shoes are now about two years old and i wear them all the time and they are still as comfortable as ever.
if you are looking for fashionable good quality clothing go for Timberland every time!
I have owned a number of different Timberland products over the years but the most noticeable is the pair of boots I got for Christmas.
They are very fashionable and I have seen a lot of people wearing them lately.
To pick up a pair you need to spend around £70 but they can be seen for over £100.
I was lucky and mine cost £55 in the sale, I would have paid the £70 so I would say they are defiantly worth it. They are very durable, I should know because I had to use them to walk to work in the very bad snow we had this Christmas. They got soaking wet and actually stained them a very dark tan colour until they dried off which took a couple of days. But they are still as good as new 2months after I got them.
You can tell that they are very well made, most of the reviews on here don't suggest that, such as the laces breaking but I have had no signs on anything like that happening.
I wouldn't recommend you drive in these should because of the size of them. I sometimes do and it does taking some getting used to, like pressing 2 pedals at once so it's very dangerous at first but I think I have mastered it now and don't really have any problems but I do try and avoid it if I can.
If you can afford to buy them I would defiantly get your self a pair if you're interested because you won't regret it.
Make sure you shop around, take a look on getthelabel.com, there are a few pairs on there now for £49.99. The ones I bought aren't on there now and they will sell out quickly but they do get different stock in all the time. JDsports have more variety but they are around £90!
I spent £80 on a pair of timberland boots last winter and what a waste of money that has turned out to be!
There just 6 nearly 7 months old and already ive replaced the laces and now the sole of the boot is starting to creek and work loose.
These boots haven't had a hard life really, im a single parent so expect shoes to last when i spend such alot of money on them.They have been worn nearly daily since i got them to be honest but only to the shops,park and walking the dog. Not climbing mountains and other such things that they are supposed to be made for so they should still have some bloomin good wear in the yet shouldn't they ? ?
Ive bought my daughter a little pair of timberland's too but at this rate im not expecting them to last long either.
such a shame and i was expecting alot more from such a well praised brand
Timberlands customer service or lack of!
I purchased a pair of jeans two years ago and they have been sitting in a wardrobe for two years because I needed them shortened.
I have worn them twice and the belt loop became detached from the jeans leaving hole.
The UK Customer service department came back to me and stated that I should take them to reputable tailor and pay for the repair.
I would say all buyers beware you will get a poor service and perhaps you should save your money and stick to a cheaper brand for better service.
I have spent a lot of money at Timberland over the years (not just because their prices are so high) but i believe that the quality of the clothing is excellent. In fact i've been so many times that I have started getting to know some of the staff (which can be handy).
In the stores that I have been to, they have been generally very clean and tidy, although once they were changing the shop around a bit so the place was a bit messy (i'm guessing that this cannot be helped). The layout of the store was quite simple too. They tend to have footwear at the back of the store (I'm guessing this is because that's what people buy the most so by walking through the store, customers are exposed to more products). During sale, the stores that i have been to have looked a bit of a state. But then sales always are.
Staff wise, tend to always be friendly. Although at Christmas time, they are never anywhere to be seen and I have seen people wait ages and end up getting fed up and leaving because of this. Christmas is a busy period but you would have thought that they would get extra staff or temps in to help out. I have had one member of staff come up to me three times in the same visit to see if i am alright, which gets annoying even after the first one. After all, unless you are shopping for something specific, you don't tend to like being hassled.
Prices are very high. As with most large, multi-national companies nowadays, everything tends to be manufactured in Asia but at £120 for a pair of Classic Boots, I'm thinking they are making a hell of a lot of profit from us customers. On the other hand, however, the stuff I have bought has lasted a long time. I bought a pair of boots and they are still lasting, six years afterwards (they are fading slightly though). Clothing prices tend to be slightly higher too, with jumpers in the region of £60 and t-shirts around £25-30.
The range of stock tends to be quite good. Particularly for men, although I have never found and clothing for girls and there doesn't tend to be much for women either. They have had quite a 'chav/scally' following in the past couple of years and but have changed the focus of products on more durable, higher quality fabrics. At a price of course. Cashmere sweaters can be as much as £100 and leather jackets up to £500. They have also introduced a Design Your Own Boot system, where-by you can choose the colour of leather, laces, eyelets, pretty much everything really. Many famous faces have also been know to use this service too.
Returns policies - I have only ever had to return something once because i didn't like it when i got home. I never had a problem with getting my money back although the manager i was speaking to was actively encouraging me to exchange it rather than anything else. You have 28 days for a full refund or exchange and I'm sure if you have any problems with the clothes they will help you out.
There are a number of stores throughout the UK, including Manchester, London, various airports, as well as outlet villages such as Cheshire Oaks near Liverpool. They also have stores throughout Europe, including Italy, Germany and France.
At the moment unfortunately, there is no UK website. It's all american, however, I have been told that one is being developed.

Was given a pair of £120 Timberland boots for Xmas, the second day I wore them someone accidentally stepped on my toe and the toe of the boot caved in. The following day I took the boots into the shop and explained, asking that they replace the boots, which had had only about two hours use. The staff in the Covent Garden store explained that they could not help me, if I had a complaint, I should email the customer service department. Somewhat irritated and clearly getting nowhere in the store I left and wrote my email... one month later and nothing. I've had to continue wearing my damaged boots because I have no others. They cost £120, they look like sh!t, and I've been shafted by a company who are large enough to know better. I probably won't be buying Timberland again, I can't afford the risk. BTW, I had a pair of Timberland boots a few years back, they lasted for five years. That's the only reason this company don't get a total thumbs down from me - I KNOW they can do better.
My Timberland socks and sweatshirt cannot be parted from be for long, especially when I'm out camping or in the case of the sweatshirt when I'm out dressed casually with my mates. Reasons why I like Timberland: - The Cut can go with basically anybody. - The style is trendy and fashionable. - The clothes are reasonably priced as designer clothes go. - There is a great variety including: - boots > very comfortable + stylish - sweatshirts > great style + variety + the logo's are visable and look great. - socks > thick + comfortable + plain + odour absourbers. - t-shirts > stylish + comforable + great variety of colours. Who is Timberland meant for: - Everybody, who likes stylish clothing and wants comfortable clothes. - Those who aren't millionaires but have a little spare money and want to get some classy clothes. Comment: Timberland is suitable for everyone young and old. Those who live in the country and those who live in the town will still find Timberland a great designer.
My Timberland boots and I cannot be parted, they are undoubtedly the best and most comfortable boots I have ever had, and to say they're durable is a serious understatement. Like old Levis and with similar cachet, they seem to go on forever... The first pair I bought were bought for £30 at a factory shop sale.I bought kids' boots (the only difference is the sole, which no one notices anyway) something I'd recommend to anyone with a foot size up to about a British 6, as they're cheaper and obviously carry no VAT. I love walking, and the same year had some good walking boots as a birthday present. It didn't take me long to discover that my Timberland boots were far more waterproof as well as being more practical for my lifestyle. The only occasion I'd warn against using them for walking would be in slippery conditions or for climbing any kind of steep and slippery rocky slope. The grip is not great, and a walking boot is undoubtedly much safer, being designed for those conditions. I have walked through mud and water up to my ankles and had my Timberland boots never let in a drop, and unlike walking boots, they seem built to put up with never being cleaned and only improve with age. You will need to buy a designated cleaner for them (very cheap) and the only thing I've done which damaged them was getting them cleaned in the Virgin Gold Lounge by one of the shoe cleaners there.They survived, but never quite looked the same again. It's now years since I bought my original pair.They are still sitting in the shoe cupboard, still waterproof and come out for particularly dirty walks. I have since bought another 2 pairs.I bought them over in the US, which I'd recommend if you're over there as although they're still expensive over there, they're £ for $ so work out cheaper. (ie what you pay $130 for there, would be £130 here) There is a Timberland Factory shop in the Belz outlet in Orlando, so if you'r
e over there get them there. They're about $75 - 100 there. If you can't get them cheaply, I still think they're well worth the money for the wear and pleasure you will get from them!
