Who should buy the Timberland Bradstreet
The Bradstreet is an attractive shoe that combines oxford styling with everyday-wear utility. This kick is for you if:
- You wish to trade your usual shiny leather pair for something more upbeat yet laidback.
- Standing or walking for hours is part of your daily routine.
- Being as mobile as you can be (while at work or at play) is how you roll.
- You're into spot-on kicks both in the areas of fit and affordability.
Who should NOT buy
If you despise developing blisters on the back of your heel, consider the mid-cut Timberland Bradstreet Chukka instead. Also, consider the more rugged-ready Timberland Davis Square Chukka Boots—it can take you through manicured trails and cityscapes like a boss.
