Cheesy, flimsy foot liner
on August 23, 2017
This is the second pair of Timberland Boat Shoes that I have purchased. I wear them constantly at home and when I go out. Actually, the pair I got two years ago are still holding up well but I wanted a second pair that I could keep for more social activities.
The one thing I don't understand is why Timberland puts a half insole support in these shoes. If you look at the photo with the top view you will see an orange liner that looks like it is there for foot support. Not only does it not offer support, but it only runs halfway through the shoes. This means that the balls of your feet are on leather, not the liner. It wouldn't be bad, but the liner easily comes unglued, especially if you go sockless, then it flaps around until you either try to glue it back in place or rip it out. I guess it is there to make the Timberland logo visible to the prospective buyer but it is less than useless.
