Timberland Mens Premium Waterproof Chukka
on January 20, 2013
To date if I had to have 1 boot only it would be these in Brown, Black and Newbuck. Oh wait I do LOL. They have a fiberglass shank so they are VERY Light. They are great for farm, hiking and work. Very long lasting and waterproof design. They are very comfortable and are a great value if you can get them for your price. I've had a pair for the farm for 5 seasons and they are going strong. They do run true to size if anything they are 1/2 size over. I'm a 12 and have both 11.5 and 12's. I prefer the 11.5 though not much of a difference. The Nubuck are great but get dirty rally fast so I only use the nubuck for farm work. The Brown and Black are nice for keeping polished.
Try to find laces at your local dollar store. My laces went on the 3rd year. I wish they came in a steel toe. These are the Original timberland old school no nonsense no fluff and very light. One thing they are not anti slip. I would say they are a great casual going out boot for every day, for hiking, or outdoor work. For slippery places try the Carolina brand they are USA Made. These Timberlan unfortunately are made in Taiwan. I'm paying a bit more now for boots buying only USA made like Carolina, Bates and Danner. These are probably the 3 best top of the line boots out there. There are a few other great ones but these are the 3 brands I'm using now. Timberland is a top of the line Commerical boot. Again, Buy USA, and our Japanese Friends as well as Mexico and Canada folks also Germany. I love these boots but after stocking up I'm only buying USA now. Farwell my fine foot friend. Timberland come back home to the USA!!!!!
