Boat shoes, deck shoes, what ever you call them, they are the must have summer footwear item. They look cute with shorts, jeans rolled up or with jeans rolled down - teamed with a shirt or a simple t-shirt, and these Timberland ones are perfect.
The really kind guys over at Timberland sent them over, as I had been banging on for ages on Twitter about them. So today, I was stoked that these blue suede pair arrived just as I was drinking my morning coffee. I slipped them on this afternoon, which showed how supple they are for new shoes, supporting the ethos of the brand.
They are part of the new S/S10 collection of athletic footwear, headed by Timberland's first athletic trainers. But these boat shoes have a slightly thicker sole to support the foot during 'vigorous activity', as well as having strong, short laces. However, I will be wearing them casually, and defiantly not for anything to strenuous.
Moreover, they are also environmentally ethical, featuring Green Rubber™ outsoles made from 42% recycled rubber. There is a little symbol for this embedded into the sole, and on the insole in the shoe too, which is a great little touch.
So a big thank you to Timberland, and take a look for yourself here.
