Timberland’s latest TV commercial is a salute to diehards everywhere – and we don’t mean “diehard” in an angry, elite or intense way, but in a fresh air, sun on your face, fun-seeking way. Take the hero in our new Timberland TV commercial, for example: what kind of sailor oversleeps and misses the boat on the day of the regatta? I’m guessing one that has some seriously fun stories to tell from the night before:
Fortunately for our sailor and his crew, our new Formentor boat shoe is made with Gripstick™ technology, which is engineered for traction on wet and dry surfaces, as well as water-shedding quad-cut siping and anti-microbial footbeds and linings for odor control (because there’s nothing funny about stinky feet, ever).
The Formentor kept our hero jumping all the way to his own boat without a single slip along the way, and nary a hair out of place (although I don’t think we can take credit for the hair).
Tell me this video doesn’t make you want to blow the dust off your bike, put on a pair of pedal pushers and get out on the road / trail:
Are they even called “pedal pushers” anymore? Maybe not. But shoes are still shoes, and you’ll need those for your cycling (and hiking, and boating). Check out our spring line.
