May, 2015 Update:
Just wanted to let everyone know I am still wearing these shoes. They are still very comfortable on my feet and still have great arch support. Definitely getting my money's worth!
well, they're going back. i got the same size i had last time and found them to be longer than the last pair that the did not sit right. i think it is partly also because the neoprene liner that they had in the first pair is gone. it used to go over the arch and attach to the tongue and it's gone. it does make a difference. i have gone now to an 11 EE in this shoe and it fits much better but still disappointed with the lack of shock comfort insole.
However, in this case I went out of my price comfort-zone. I was looking for the sweet spot where "at-the-office" meets "bumming around" from a design standpoint. I also wanted materials with lasting endurance. Something shinier, fancier (or cheaper) might wear noticeably with daily use. Hopefully Timberland's reputation will prove itself in this regard. I wanted something casual enough to wear with jeans, but attractive enough to wear with slacks and a button-down. In my humble fashion opinion these shoes fit in that spot. The "contrast" stitching doesn't jump out (the thread is medium grey, not white) but is not so subtle as to go unnoticed. The overall shape is rugged, but softened just enough to look like a shoe and not like a boot. The finish - a textured matte - should wear very well for obvious reasons. Even the eyelets seem to be well-built with the topmost being ovals which makes sense: lesser shoes with weak (or no) eyelets tend to distort where they are tied again and again. The small spandex-like web at the top-rear of the counter is a genius element making putting on and removing the shoe easier yet not diminishing the look of the shoe or the strength of the counter.
If I can hold anything against this shoe it's the thickness and lack of padding in the upper. Despite this it was one of the most comfortable shoes I'd ever had out of the box. It applies no uncomfortable rubbing points around the ankle, heel, top or tongue. So I guess padding isn't necessary if a shoe is cut just right. (Note: there IS sole padding, I am referring to the upper surfaces.) One possible downside is warmth during the winter. We'll see how that goes.
The only design point I would considering altering would be the laces - which are black - matching them to the grey stitching. Given the low-contrast I don't believe it would look ostentatious, but I'd have to see it. Certainly the black laces do not detract from the appearance.
Other comments mentioned a lack of traction in wet or snowy conditions. I haven't experienced much in wet and we haven't had any snow stick yet so I can't comment there. In dry conditions they seem about as grippy as an average sneaker, certainly more so than a smooth soled dress shoe.
Awesome shoes and a very reasonable price. Don't hesitate to get them; you won't be sorry.
