Timberland Earthkeepers and my New Rudston Pull-On Boots

I grew up loving and wearing Timberland shoes!


As a teenager, I used to decorate my notebooks with drawings of their tree and I would wear my boots with pride.

Actually my very first pair of Timberland shoes weren't boots but a pair of boat shoes just like these:

They were such a prized possession that everybody in my neighborhood "knew" about my Timberlands and some of my friends even came over to check them out the first day I brought them home from the store.  :)

Since that first pair, I've owned many different pairs and different models, but I've always found that there are some constants no matter which pair I had on my feet: comfort, durability and the fact that I could literally dunk my feet in water and never get wet!

So when I was asked if I wanted to review a product from Timberland's latest eco-conscious brand, Earthkeepers®, I couldn't say yes fast enough!

And a few days later I received a beautiful pair of Rudston Pull-on Boots! :)

My first reaction was "Wow! Are these really Timberland boots?"

I wasn't expecting them to look so, so... stylish! I especially wasn't expecting a heel. A nice sturdy heel.

The leather is soft (no breaking in needed) and the pull-on feature is a welcomed alternative to all the zippers in my closet.

What Timberland is trying to do with the Earthkeepers® collection is to give nature something back, by using recycled materials in the making of each product, and by using at least one plastic bottle and a half in each pair of shoes or boots (and coffee grounds in their odor-resistant jackets!)

But they are also trying to be fashion conscious, by making the shoes appealing to a broader share of the consumer market. So here is a boot that can be worn with jeans, pants but also with skirts. And you can accidentally step in water and your outfit will not get ruined (at least not the boots).

Well done, Timberland (you never disappoint me)!
