1.0 out of 5 stars Timberland YES; This Model: NO, December 19, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timberland White Ledge Men's Waterproof Boot (Apparel)
Timberland has always given me the most durable boot I've ever owned.

This model, however, is falling apart after two weeks. The eyelets for the bootlaces are a flawed design, and two different eyelets have popped out with minimal use or stress on the product. The nature of the disintegration is easily identified -- they're simply poorly designed, and appear to be an endemic problem which is likely to reoccur.

The eyelets aren't really repairable. This makes my purchase a giant loss. Unfortunately for me, I purchased multiple pairs of Timberland boots one year ago, and these have been waiting in storage in mint condition. So no warranty or returns for me.

This particular issue doesn't happen with other models of Timberland boot, I've found, and I still recommend Timberland as a brand above all others.

Are you talking about the lower eyelets that hold the first four laces, or the uppers that hold the top two? I've owned 4 pairs of Timberlands for over 5 years apiece, and never had problems with the any of the eyelets for the laces, including this version. I got these as a bday gift a few months ago and am really pleased with this boot.

So I don't know where you're coming from with your statement about shoddy design. Also, if you've got multiple pairs of brand new boots of the same design (???) why not just try a couple more out and see if the eyelets give you trouble.

These were pretty easy to break in, and they've held up well to the Colorado winters. I've got the mink oil, but haven't gotten around to applying it, and they still keep out the snow very well.

I haven't seen this boot, so I'll have to be hesitant, but your comment about the eyelets being nonrepairable may not be true. I bought a pair of Adidas hiking boots on closeout sale at least a decade ago, and they have been the best fitting boots I've ever owned--but they had poorly designed or manufactured top eyelets (hooks) --two popped out after only the first couple of times I wore them. I repaired them using a pop-rivet gun + small washers on the inside to prevent pullout (I cut a slit on the inside of the shoe collar to insert the washers). Believe me, they have lasted since then. Long story merely to say that the eyelets may indeed be repairable, and simply (Yes, I know things shouldn't be that way, but like I said, these have been the best-fitting boots I've ever owned.)
