Size and fit

Although Brooklyn Oxford is exclusively available in men’s sizing, the basic colors of black, white, and red alone make it wearable even to the opposite sex.

Constructed in a one-piece sock-sleeve style, many testers recommend getting this half a size down for a more snug fit. Mesh lining and perforations on the forefoot area allow for ample ventilation, keeping feet dry and comfortably cool.

Timberland Brooklyn Oxford Style

When it comes to clothing options that go best with Timberland Brooklyn Oxford, it all boils down to one’s fashion preferences. Whether a wearer dons on this rugged-looking sneaker for practical or stylish purposes, a pair of Brooklyn Oxford on feet will surely complete one’s look.

  • A pair of denim jeans, no matter the cut, a tee, and a beige hue of Brooklyn Oxford, is a fail-safe ensemble.
  • For some corporate comfort, put on some khaki pants, a polo shirt, and a navy blue of this kick for some laid-back vibes in the confines of the office walls.

Notable Features

Looking like a doppelganger of the Brooklyn Perforated, this Oxford version features silver-grade nubuck leather or suede upper. A more environment-friendly version of this shoe drapes on ReBotl™ fabric in dark green and black ripstop uppers. ReBotl™ material is made from 50% plastic.

Constructed in this one-piece style, the mesh material lines the insoles that add the breathability factor on top of the perforations on the toe box.

Outsole innovation is highlighted through Timberland’s Aerocore™ technology. This triple cushioning system features comfort and flexibility, durability, and increased energy return, all packed in this lightweight shoe.

Amplifying its rugged appeal are the trail-inspired lace closures and lug sole-looking outsoles for better grip and traction.
