Timberland does it Again,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timberland Men's Earthkeepers City Chukka Boot (Shoes)
I have many pairs of Timberland boots and wanted something that was a bit less outdoorsy yet had a casual appearance and nearly slip-on fit. These chukka's seemed to be just what I needed. As usual Amazon did a great job on price and shipping. Many of the other reviews note that these run big. They do. My other Timberland boots are 11.5W and fit like a glove. Because of the reviews I dropped down to an 11W. Although normal "Timberland" comfortable I could have gone with a 10.5W. Be aware of this. Also note that these are nu-buck and not smooth leather. Look carefully at the photo. That means that traditional polish or liquid leather treatments/ protectors will not work. I purchased a spray-on silicone treatment. You will also need a suede brush to brush away dirt and scuffs. Also a suggestion based on my experience with Timberland shoes/boots, the foot bed padding is just OK. The first thing I always do is remove them and put in Sof Sole Lightweight Insoles. These take the comfort level from a 4 to a 5+. The best prices are usually on Amazon. These chukka's may be a discontinued item from Timberland as I could not find them at their website. They do offer similar shoes but the price is considerably more than what I paid at Amazon.
