Timberland Adventure 2.0 Cupsole Alpine Chukka History
Founder Nathan Swartz began working in the footwear industry in the late 1920s. In 1955, he bought all the shares in the Boston-based The Abington Shoe Company, bringing his sons with him to the business. Contract work for manufacturers was their main operation back then, but it all changed when they introduced the injection-molding process in the shoe industry. The technology allowed the company to remove the need for stitching the sole to the upper.
Soon, the business turned to the production of completely waterproof boots for both cold and warm weather. By the late 1960s, the company had grown so much that they transferred to Newmarket, New Hampshire. It was here that they came up with a waterproof leather boot called “Timberland” in 1973. It quickly became so popular that the brand decided to change its name to The Timberland Company.
It was also in the 1970s that boat shoes and casual footwear were added to the brand’s boot lineup. One shoe from the company’s casual series is the high-top Timberland Adventure 2.0 Cupsole Alpine Chukka. It's inspired by the brand's distinct outdoor roots, as can be seen in its smooth upper, made up of premium leather. Its design has a touch of elegance, yet it also has a rugged appeal that speaks of adventure.
