My favourite boots in the world!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 December 2020
I have real trouble finding shoes that fit and are of good quality. Prior to discovering these Timberland boots, I would find a pair of good shoes and next time I come to buy them the style has disappeared. Luckily, these suede Chukkas have been going for a few years now and I've just bought my third pair.
I use them all the time, from casual days with jeans when I'm at work not seeing clients, to weekends and out walking top when I'm in a park (not for really muddy places though - I have proper walking boots for that). They last about 2 years of constant use and abuse, which is really good. To be honest, I've gained far too many kilos later in life due to my wife's fantastic cooking, so my weight (110Kg) gives the soles a good pounding and they still last with only gradual wear. Other shoes that I've tried only last 1 year.
They're comfortable right out of the box with no wearing-in period and I find that the sizing is perfect for me. I have relatively narrow feet and one foot is a size 9, the other a size 9.5 (UK). I find that I really need to buy a pair of 9.5's, but a lot of manufacturers don't do half sizes so I have to try a 10 which is the size at which they start to go too wide for me. Full marks Timberland for making a pair of proper watertight boots that fit like a glove!
All in all, perfect. No cheap, but you get what you pay for. Hopefully, they'll keep making them over the years. If that's the case, these will be the ones I'm buried in (hopefully not too soon).
