A streetwear staple, Timberland boots have been worn ubiquitously since they were popularised in the late 80s and early 90s. Launched in 1973, these boots were made to brave exciting outdoors conditions, with a rugged knobbed sole and a hardwearing but supple waterproof leather upper.
This might be why they became so popular for the equally challenging terrain of the urban jungle! They were adopted as the go to boot for oh-so-cool urbanites - and the classic striking yellow and black variation is still worn by both men and women worldwide.
But is there any difference between men’s and women’s Timberland boots?
Timberlands are Unisex
For the most part, Timberland Boots are unisex. The main difference between their men’s and women’s boots are the designs offered. Compared to the men's, some of the women's designs may offer different colourways and feature other materials or other sole/uppers combinations.
Classic Timberland boots are the same
As mentioned above, the Timberland Lace Up 6 Inch Premium Waterproof Boots are unisex, with a slight caveat. When buying from an online store like brandhousedirect.com.au, check whether the boots are categorised as “men’s” or “women’s”. This distinction is important because of the size difference - a men’s 6 is a women’s 7.5. If it’s categorised under ‘women’s’ boots, then you can skip the mathematics and just buy your boot true to size.
Are All Men’s Boots Unisex?
For the most part, yes! If you see a boot design that might be out of stock in the women’s style or isn’t available at all, then the only thing you need to do is subtract 1.5 from the women’s size - a women’s 8 is a men’s 6.5. This doubles your options when shopping for boots - and when you visit brandhousedirect.com.au, you already have a huge list of boots to choose from!
