The No. 1 Rule to Looking Good on a Boat: Stay on the Boat

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:

There’s Nothing Pretty About Falling in the Drink

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:

Only 63 Days Til Spring …

What?  There’s no rule that says you can’t enjoy the present (in all its icy, snowy, freezing glory) and still look forward to the future.  And when the future includes light, bright styles like these, you might just find yourself hoping for an early thaw.
