Timberland Bradstreet Chukka History

Way back in 1933, the beginning of the company’s history, it was then known as the Abington Shoe Company which produced wholesale hand-stitched shoes. In 1952, half of the company was bought by Nathan Swartz and continued to do contractual works with other manufacturers. By 1955, he bought the other half of the company as he saw its potential.

In 1965, the company incorporated injection-molding in constructing their shoes which makes their shoes waterproof. By the year 1965, the company was moved to Newmarket, New Hampshire. It was in 1973 that the company made a name change from Abington Shoe Company to Timberland Company.

Also in 1973, the classic and iconic Timberland 6 Inches Work Boots was first introduced to the world. It was originally designed as working boots for blue-collar workers. During the 90’s, a peculiar thing happened around New York City as rappers, and the likes began wearing the boots as a part of their cultural outfit.
