If you’re not quite ready to give up the cozy comforts of winter and embrace the light bright styles of spring, these fresh-picked Timberland Boot Company beauties may give you just the kick you need:
The Spring 2012 Boot Company styles draw their inspiration from the similarly durable-yet-beautiful women’s footwear found in the early 20th century — well made, well worn and well loved. Here’s Penny, our Women’s Boot Company Designer, to tell us more:
Our Spring 2012 Boot Company collection for women offers beautiful craftsmanship in a bouquet of styles. Pick one for yourself.
You might expect superior traction and stability when you’re wearing Timberland’s Formentor boat shoes made with Gripstick technology … but did you know we use the same Gripstick technology in our Formentor bag collection? It’s our way of making sure your gear stays as safe and dry as you do.
Our Formentor bags are made with lightweight, durable synthetics and feature waterproof zippers and polyurethane-coated plastic hardware for superior grip in wet or dry conditions. These bags get their own treatment of Gripstick technology in the form of non-marking rubber feet, which protect the bags (and their contents) from the ground and reduce tipping and slipping.
Our Formentor Waterproof Tote Bag is ready to go to the beach or boat, and its water-resistant detachable pouch is perfect for carrying small essentials:
For not-so-small essentials, our Formentor Waterproof Duffle Bag offers protection from the elements in streamlined style:
Need a bag that’s as changeable as the summer weather? Check out our Formentor Waterproof 4-in-1. Depending on how you configure the straps, it can be used as a pack, duffle, tote or sling, making it the perfect go-to bag for any warm-weather adventure:
If you’re looking for sea-worthy style from head to toe, pair these bags with our Formentor apparel and footwear.
Mr. Strickland was a mid-1800’s adventure seeker; he was the first man in recorded history to summit Mount Washington in the winter … and also the first man to die on Mount Washington during his attempted descent. (For the purposes of this story, let’s just focus on Frederick’s life, not death.)
The fearless (some might say foolish) passion for the outdoors that fueled Frederick Strickland and other early adventurers like him serves as inspiration for Timberland’s Spring 2012 Abington Collection — full of handsome, durable, comfortable boots and shoes made for the most discerning outdoor pioneers.

Over 18 months ago, we challenged our product developers to come up with a performance boat shoe that could grip like crazy when you need it most, but also look great on shore. The result? The Formentor, which features Timberland Gripstick™ technology.
And no better time to create a performance boat shoe: last summer, we announced our technical sponsorship of the Spanish Olympic Sailing team. As they make their bid for London in 2012, we’re proud to outfit the team in our Timberland footwear and apparel.
Just how well does our Formentor perform? See for yourself:
Get your nautical on: Our spring 2012 collection of boat shoes has something for sailors and land-lovers alike.
Authentic and outdoors: it describes our brand, and also describes the photos that make up the women’s gallery on our website – no studio, no stylists, just real women wearing real Timberland gear in the great outdoors. See?
Like our footwear, our women’s gallery models not only look good, they perform well, too. See for yourself what a cold and windy day they had to endure (with smiles on their faces!) for the photo shoot:

That’s why our designers take great care to make sure our boat shoes work as good as they look. For example, Timberland’s Formentor boat shoes are made with Timberland Gripstick rubber (for superior traction on wet surfaces) and use ion-mask technology by P2i to ensure that these shoes shed water more easily.
Here’s Alyssa, the lead designer for our Outdoor Adventure products for women, to explain more about how the Formentor meets the wants and needs of women seeking a stylish shoe that’s fit to perform on land and sea:
