Timberland Newport Bay Thread Canvas Sneaker Boots History
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 boots 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.
