Whether your weekend involves snowy slopes, one last round of holiday parties or simply navigating an icy walk, we’ve got the boots to help you stay warm while making a statement. The Earthkeepers Mount Holly Faux Fur Boot was made for winter weather, featuring premium full-grain leather, recycled rubber lug outsoles, cozy faux shearling linings and our exclusive anti-fatigue technology.
If you’re not sure how this shaggy-chic pair of boots fits into your winter wardrobe, take a page from our stylist’s lookbook:

I’ve had a few people reach out to me via iMessage or Facebook asking what to get “their guy” for the holidays. With the gift-giving season upon us, here’s a guy gift-giving guide from the perspective of someone who spends a lot of time on the go, for business and pleasure, in both the outdoors and the big city.
In full disclosure, I’m a bit biased as the Boot Company Brand Manager – but I can say with confidence that the Boot Company Tackhead 8-Inch Boot fits in whether you’re in a swanky restored whiskey distillery or on an authentic Yukon Territory ranch. With a mix of organic cotton canvas and premium full-grain leather with a wool liner, it’ll keep you on the cutting edge — and warm. It also features a Vibram® outsole, so you know it’s ready for anything.
When you can only pack one jacket, you need something that’s dependable, waterproof, warm and makes a statement. The Chocorua Alpine Waterproof Raincoat is seam-sealed waterproof and features Primaloft® ECO insulation (made from 50% PET, recycled plastic bottles). The aesthetic mixes classic mountaineering alpinist with mixed media elements in the form of leather in high wear locations normally reserved for Cordura® or Ripstop.
If orange is too bright for you, check out the Earthkeepers Front Country Hiker Jacket in Forest Night (Green), Black or Rust. You can layer it with a Lightweight Quilted Jacket and achieve a similar effect.
It’s a sad reality that whether I’m on the go for work or play, keeping track of time is usually a necessity. The Front Country watch is water-resistant (so go ahead and play in the snow) and durable enough to stand up to your daily workout or simply daily wear, thanks to materials like stainless steel and leather. If classic black isn’t your thing, it also comes in olive green.
I’ve become obsessed with documenting my life. I blame my kids. I’m a huge proponent of the aggregation of devices (aka iPhone), but there are times when you need to have some specialized gear for the task. The new GoPro offers you the ability to capture all of life’s little adventures wherever they may take you. No need to worry about dropping the iPhone in the ocean with this one.
When I’m not working, I try to spend a bunch of time on the bike. When it got a bit chilly, I always wore this layering piece. Eventually I started wearing this off the bike, under button-downs when it was chilly or even on its own in place of a t-shirt. Merino wool keeps you warm, but also naturally wicks sweat and water. This makes it a perfect piece when you need to travel. I usually wear these on the plane, where the temperature changes more frequently than my 3-year old’s mood.
Here at Timberland, we’re a pretty crafty bunch. We like sleek stuff that is hand-made from natural materials, so it’s only natural (get it?) to have an iPhone case made of 100% wool felt.
Remember what I said about Merino Wool and its awesome abilities to wick sweat and keep you comfy? The same goes for socks. These little guys keep you warm, dry and also sport an argyle, diamond pattern for your inner hipster. Rock these socks in an office meeting or on the trail.
We’ve all been there. Your luggage arrives in baggage claim, and it looks like someone packed a honey badger in your bag. It’s that exact moment that you want to avoid when you’re traveling for work or for fun. This duffle comes as small as XS and as large as XL. It’s made out of a crazy, waterproof ballistic nylon, is tested at Mt. Everest (no joke) and can be carried like a backpack too.
Deep breaths. You’ll be ok. Happy shopping and happy holidays!
A good reminder for all of us from Cathy in Connecticut … footwear is replaceable, feet are not.
Timberland boots saved my husband’s toes! He slipped with a chainsaw while cutting up a tree after Hurricane Sandy. Thanks god he had on his new Timberland boots or his toes would have been … well, you know. He’ll need a new pair of boots, but better than a new set of toes!

‘Tis the season for crummy winter weather … as you fire up those snowblowers, chainsaws and generators, be safe (and make sure you’re wearing the right boots for the job!).
Late spring’s longer, warmer days mean more time for you to get outdoors and play. Whether your preference is trail or sail, Timberland’s got just the watch to keep you on time and in style.
Our Belknap Watch is as rugged and outdoor-ready as the New Hampshire county it’s named for. We’ve paired an ion-plated brushed stainless steel case with a versatile rubber strap that’s washable and durable. The Belknap’s date feature and water-resistance add functionality and performance to this stylish timepiece.
Whether you’re tracking high tide or getting ready for full moon fever, you’ll be ready when you’re wearing our Hydroclimb Moon Phase Watch. A sleek, polished stainless steel case contrasts nicely with the rubber strap, which is rugged and easily washable. The Hydroclimb is water resistant to 300 feet – peace of mind in case your canoe tips unexpectedly.
Sleek, hard-wearing and ready to time your hikes and runs, our Front Country Chronograph will quickly earn its place on your list of essential gear. Water resistant to 300 feet, the Front Country features a polished stainless steel case and rugged leather strap that will conform to your wrist over time.
If you’ve got a dad or a grad in your life that’s perpetually 10 minutes late, don’t forget – watches make great gifts, too! You can shop our entire watch collection online.
So says Adam, the global product manager on Timberland’s Men’s Outdoor Team. He knows a thing or two about the outdoors – the Tennessee native grew up boating, kayaking, hiking and backpacking and has climbed 20 of the 14,000-foot peaks in Colorado.
Adam’s expertise makes him a great asset to our product team, and also makes him the perfect guy to offer some advice for your own outdoor adventures:
- You should be flexible; your gear should be versatile. The outdoors has a way of throwing surprises at you; the better you and your gear can adapt, the better your experience will be.
- To scale a mountain, keep your feet on the ground. I see a lot of people climbing the steep, smooth stuff on their tiptoes. But your goal should be to keep as much of your sole on the ground as possible—so you’ve got traction.
- Just get out there. It doesn’t matter how fast you go or how far you go—just do what you love to do, with the people you want to do it with.
If that’s not enough to make you want to get up off the couch, check out our Men’s collection for spring, including the new Pathrock hiker (it’s versatile — Adam would approve!). And to see what products Adam and other Timberland guys love these days, be sure to click on staff picks.
