Timberland Heritage

The Timberland Company are a world-renowned manufacturer of apparel and footwear, with humble beginnings in the South Boston area of Massachusetts, where they began life as the Abington Shoe Company.

Having introduced the innovative injection-moulding technology to the manufacturing of footwear in the 1960s, Abington Shoe Company revolutionised the industry by creating the first high-quality, mass-produced waterproof boots.

Thanks to the success of its most popular line - the Timberland boot - the company was renamed in the 1970s, before reaching international recognition in the 1980s. As Timberland continued to expand, the company became a brand icon, being worn by rappers like DMX and Mobb Deep.

Now, Timberland is a billion dollar company, manufacturing and selling its products around the world.
