What wearing Timberland’s Garrison Trail Low means
Who is it for?
- With its beefed-up medial section, the Garrison Trail Low caters to hikers who need that extra arch cushioning and security.
- It is for those who wish to ‘glide’ on flat surfaces, whether on or off the trail. This is made possible by the shoe’s heel- and toe-rockered sole.
- If you are an advocate of a greener Earth and a fan of kicks partly made from recycled materials, this is for you.
- Its waterproofing is forefoot-only. With that, try to tip-toe your way across puddles instead of haphazardly trampling over them.
- The Timberland Garrison Trail Low might be somewhat difficult to put on for some, as it does not come with a heel tab.
- It has no heel brake—you will have to rely on its ridged heel zone and some creative footwork during descents.
- The featured shoe has a fully watertight sibling in the Garrison Trail Waterproof Low. It uses one of Gore-Tex’s waterproof membranes.
- The Garrison Trail Low is made possible by Timberland’s ReBOTL initiative, which transforms used plastic bottles into cloth-like fabric.
