If you liked the Timberland FlyRoam Go Knit simply for looks, then you will love it even better when you find out about its features. High energy rebound with every stride is easily attainable with this sneaker. It uses the brand’s Aerocore midsole system to give improved cushioning while keeping things lightweight. Nature lovers will be glad to know that the mesh linings of the sneaker are made from 50% PET plastic while the tough outsoles are manufactured from 34% recycled rubber.

Timberland is one of the oldest footwear manufacturers in the US. Previously known as The Abington Shoe Company, Nathan Swartz bought out the business in 1955. In 1973, the company came out with the waterproof Timberland cleat. This cleat proved to be so popular that the company changed its name to the Timberland Company to reflect the shoe’s name.

A few years after changing their name, the company expanded to include Timberland casual and boat shoes to their lineup. They also went international and pretty soon, rappers and hip-hop culture icons, Mobb Deep and DMX, began wearing Timberland products. This gave the brand some street cred and helped triple their sales.

The FlyRoam Go Knit comes from Timberland's lifestyle section and is surprisingly stylish and trendy coming from a company that mainly sells outdoor gear. The streamlined kick features a sporty-chic design with a sock-like fit and lightweight feel.

  • The Timberland FlyRoam Go Knit is covered in a one-piece jacquard mesh fabric, and it fits like a glove for a supportive fit.
  • The model weighs around 340 grams per shoe.
