Who should buy the Timberland Field Trekker Low
The Field Trekker Low fits the bill for anyone looking for a stylish pair of hiking shoes that they can use on the trail and on the streets. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking shoe that provides quality cushioning and support.
- Prefer a hiking shoe that provides a strong grip on varying terrain.
Stable and excellent grip on uneven ground
Timberland soles are made of 33% recycled vulcanized tile rubber. Aside from sustainability, this type of outsole has many other good qualities, such as strength, durability, and grip which you would expect from vehicle tires.
The lugs on the center part are multidirectional which helps maintain foot stability and grip on uneven ground. There’s also enough space in between to help shed off some dirt or mud.
The Timberland Field Trekker Low men’s shoes have midsoles made of EVA. This durable material is also used by other top brands in constructing performance footwear.
Ethel vinyl acetate (EVA) is a synthetic foam. It’s made of thousands of tiny bubbles compressed to hold air. As a result, you get a soft and bouncy material that makes a good cushioning platform for the foot.
Soft and flexible cushioning
The Field Trekker low-cut hiker also comes with an OrthoLite footbed which offers plenty of benefits. One is that it provides long-term cushioning. Compared with traditional insoles, the compression rate of Ortholite is just 5%, so it stays soft and supportive despite long use.
Ortholite is also very breathable. Thanks to its open-cell structure that helps move away moisture from the foot, keeping it dry and comfortable.
The soft and velvety finish
One of the best features of the Timberland Field Trekker Low hiking shoes is the suede leather uppers which they source from a tannery rated “Silver” for sustainability. Suede has a soft and velvety finish, which is naturally stunning.
The uppers also contain ReBOTL fabric lining which is partly made of recycled materials (plastic bottles). They come in three colorways: Taupe/Green, Brown/Blue, Black, and Navy.
Protects against stains from oil or water
This shoe is treated with the Defender Repellent System which protects against stains from oil or water. A speed lacing closure with round laces completes the upper. The metal eyelets are rust-proof for extra durability and longevity.
