The Timberland brand started out in 1952 as the Abington Shoe Company. The shoe company was acquired by Nathan Swartz and started manufacturing outdoor shoes. The American brand has also been instrumental in using injection-molding technology in shoe manufacturing in 1962. The shoe company specialized in making outdoor footwear especially for the cooler climates and later on branched out in coming up with all-weather boots.
Since then, the Timberland label has evolved and began manufacturing lifestyle and casual sneakers aside from its usual repertoire of waterproof boots and outdoor footwear. The Timberland label has also released boat shoes and other footwear designs to keep up with the times.
The company became a subsidiary of VF Corporation in 2011 and has continued to be a leader in global engineering, manufacturing, and marketing of footwear design. It has also led in the use of leather materials in its footwear using only materials from facilities rated silver or higher by a third-party environmental audit.
