Outside Timberland: I’m a surfer, snowboarder, road and mountain biker. Dad to two kids under 3 and two dogs. Basically never sitting still.
My favorite thing to do in the outdoors: Explore with the family on Orr's Island, ride hilly gravel roads in Vermont, enjoy powder at Jackson Hole or glassy conditions at the Wall. A little bit of everything.
My favorite Timberland product: Earthkeepers City 6-Inch Plain Toe Side Zip Boot. It's business in the front and party in the rear. Feel good about your footwear. The side zip also makes it ultra convenient when you're rushing to that morning meeting after surfing a chilly dawn patrol.

The ask: Create a footwear collection that has unique Timberland DNA and is appropriate for spring and fall casual wear when you’re kicking it beachside with friends or lounging in the park.

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 [...]
It seems contradictory to be talking about spring footwear when there’s several inches of snow and temperatures are in the 30s, but that’s how it works – we’re often designing our shoes, boots, clothing and accessories years in advance.
