Good to know

The mid-top Timberland Dauset Chukka is exclusively offered in men's sizes that range from 7 to 13. Although most consumers found the shoe to fit perfectly, some have disclosed that it fits bigger than expected. Hence, trying a pair in person is best advised.

With an abundant cushioning in the collar and tongue areas, users are treated to a comfortable fit despite its ankle-length height. A lace-up closure is also utilized to provide a secure fit.

The Timberland Dauset Chukka displays a hybrid style that seamlessly marries the traditional rugged aesthetic of a Timberland cleat with the casual, sporty style of a sneaker. The shoe's premium and sleek leather upper provides the signature Timberland look while the midsole resembles a casual sneaker's traditional midsole, which worked as a unit that somehow bridged the gap between rugged casual wear and streetwear.

These shoes would look its best when paired with slightly loose fitting jeans or pants to complement its bulky form. Finish your look with a shirt and a coat or a jacket for a cool-looking winter/outdoor-inspired ensemble.

The Timberland Dauset Chukka exudes the traditional look of the Timberland cleat, which makes it instantly recognizable especially the Wheat colorway. Its lux leather upper displays a dual tone that elevates the shoe's overall style, while the simple midsole provides a street-smart look to the rugged Timberland aesthetic. Behind this stylish aesthetic, it's nice to note that an Ortholite footbed helps keep the feet comfortable and well cushioned.

Officially launched in 1973, Timberland was born because of the success of the "6-inch yellow cleat." Before the brand's creation, the company has been manufacturing the renowned yellow cleat for almost two decades and achieved its international status due to the cleat's superb quality and style. After a few years since the official introduction of the brand, their inventory expanded to include casual and boat shoes, which also catapulted the company's popularity.

Today, the brand remains relevant thanks to the exponential growth of their products that now include apparel, watches, backpacks, kids' footwear, and more lifestyle-based shoes. One of their many lifestyle models is the ankle-length Timberland Dauset Chukka Cleat, which displays a simple yet stylish appeal with the classic quality of a Timberland shoe.
