Terrible fit, loose and too tight all at the same time.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timberland Mens Heritage 6 Inch Premium Boot#27097 (Apparel)
I love the way these look and that they're waterproof. But there's nothing else redeeming about them.
I did my research and purchased these undersized—they were still way too big. Worse than just being too large, they also were too tight around the arch and ankle. They're just poorly built. I tried breaking them in, wearing thick and thin socks, putting different insoles in them, and nothing resolved these boot's terrible fit. They also seriously messed up my feet. They're stiff and loose in the heel and toe, slapping against the bottom of my feet whenever I took a step during casual walks---by the end of the day my shins ached like I'd been hitting the pavement after a marathon. Putting insoles in them really messed up my right ankle. I would never, ever recommend using these for the purpose I bought them for: hiking. At best these are fashion pieces.
I hated feeling like I wasted so much time and money in a pair of boots, but I bought something else and was infinitely more happy with my purchase—I just got done walking a day-long hike with them, something I could never imagine doing with my Timberlands. I will never purchase a Timberland product again and strongly encourage people to try them on first and really make sure they fit before ordering them online.
