The Timberland Newport Bay Thread Canvas Sneaker Cleats are men’s silhouettes with sizes ranging from 7 to 13 in regular medium width. The canvas uppers are soft yet sturdy, providing some lateral and medial support. A high-cut construction allows the feet to be more securely locked in by the shoes’ lacing system.
These canvas kicks give off that perfect relaxed and chill look that goes hand in hand with the summer and spring seasons. Ride on the laidback vibe and pair these high-top shoes with joggers and sweatshirts. The neutral colors of these footwear will go well with any color outfit in your wardrobe. You can take it up a notch by matching the sneakers ripped jeans and a cable sweater in a burgundy color (or any other shade that would make your outfit pop).
These Timberland sneakers’ Newport Bay Thread references the Thread fabric used in creating the uppers. The Thread is made from 50% recycled plastic bottles collected in Haiti while fabric crafting is made in the USA. The outsoles, meanwhile, are made from 15% recycled rubber but don’t let that fool you. The outsoles are sturdy and can take much punishment from your everyday activities. If you’re looking for stylish shoes that give back to Mother Earth, it’s these kicks.
Timberland LLC used to be called The Abington Shoe Company until Nathan Swartz bought out all shares of the business in the year 1955. The Swartz family were the first to utilize the injection-molding technology in the manufacture of shoes, an innovation so ahead of its time because it allowed the production of waterproof cleats by connecting soles to uppers without the use of stitches.
The main focus of the brand was outdoor wear, but in 1978, they decided to grow their range and expand into the manufacture of casual Timberland shoes. Just a few more years later, they went international, and they haven’t stopped rising since. This was partly due to professional rappers and well-known hip-hop culture icons DMX and Mobb Deep wearing their brand.
Amazingly, for a company that is focused on outdoor Timberland footwear, their lifestyle shoes are doing well and, in fact, are quite trendy. Just like the Newport Bay Thread Canvas Sneaker Cleats which rock the casual look so well with its high-cut profile, smooth canvas uppers, and neutral tones that go well with any relaxed day outfit.
