Founded by Nathan Swartz, Timberland is an American company that manufactures and sells outdoor apparel, accessories, and footwear. However, the name ‘Timberland’ was not thought of until around 1970s.

The brand's history can be tracked down way back in the ‘50s. It all began when Swartz bought half of the Abington Shoe Company in 1952 and the rest of the shares in 1955. The company was then known doing contract works for other manufacturers and ten years later switched to utilizing injection-molding technology into its shoes, which eventually led to the production of waterproof cleats.

These waterproof cleats gained skyrocket popularity throughout the ‘70s. By 1973, the Abington Shoe Company bid farewell and paved the way for the Timberland Company as its new identity. From waterproof cleat production, the company also transcends to casual and boat shoes in the late ‘70s. During the ‘80s, Timberland expanded not just in the US, but in the international market as well.

Came 1990 when the Timberland Company steadily expanded and included other product lines as part of its global market expansion. Aside from the highly coveted footwear, it also included kids' footwear, backpacks, and watches.

To date, Timberland still produces top-notch quality footwear including those that would fit the casual Timberland category while maintaining Timberland’s signature look. One of these is the Timberland Raystown High-Top Sneaker Cleat.

The Timberland Raystown High-Top Sneaker Cleat is one variation of one of the brand’s most popular waterproof hiking cleats, the Timberland Raystown. This silhouette, however, is designed for a casual get-up while adopting the signature features and look of the original Raystown model. It comes in a leather upper with a padded tongue, collar, and footbed, a lace-up closure that extends up to the ankle, and a rubber sole.

  • The Timberland Raystown High-Top Sneaker Cleat also utilizes fabric lining for added in-shoe comfort.
  • The midsole has stitching details accent.
  • There is an extra loop tab on the tongue that helps keep it in place for a secure fit.
  • This shoe has a low-top version called the Timberland Raystown Sneaker Ox. It also has a waterproof hiking cleat version called the Timberland Raystown.
