Good to know

The Timberland Altimeter Mixed-Median Sneaker Cleats come in men's sizes that range from 7-13 Medium. It should be noted that half sizes are available for most sizes except for 12 and 13. These sneakers also come in a traditional lace-up closure that goes all the way up to the ankles, ensuring that the feet are secured at all times.

Timberland does not only boast of its yellow cleat. In fact, over the past few years, that brand has vastly experimented with different technologies and styles. The Altimeter Mixed-Media Sneaker is a high-top sneaker that sports a mix of different materials- premium leather and mesh, which creates a unique texture and breaks the monotony of the monochromatic upper.

Its users can highly appreciate its versatile style as it makes a suitable pair to be worn from day to night and be worn for casual or business-casual occasions. Coming in neutral colorways, a light taupe and black, wearers can effortlessly style each without the need of overthinking.

Much like most of the Timberland sneakers, the Altimeter Mixed Media is packed with features. One that stands out is the Sensorflex Comfort Technology, a triple-layer suspension system that immediately adapts and flexes on every step, even on uneven terrain, delivering a smooth and stable experience.

With a matching Ortholite foam insole, these sneaker cleats heighten the comfort in another level but at the same time provide an ultra-breathable material, moisture transport, and antimicrobial quality.

With a background in the shoe business as an apprentice stitcher, Nathan Swartz bought half the shares of The Abington Shoe Company in 1952. In 1965, shortly after acquiring the remaining stocks of the company, the brand introduced a technology that utilizes injection molding on its footwear. It results in a waterproof cleat that was able to withstand the cold and tropical weather conditions. Because of the popularity of these, the company then changed the name to The Timberland Company.

In 1978 and 1979, Timberland diversified its product range and offered boat shoes and casual shoes. The year after, it showed no signs of stopping as it traversed on international borders starting in the Italian market and later on, on other countries. Since then, Timberland proved that it has more to boast than its famous Yellow Cleat. Because of its consistency on its products, the brand gained a reputation of producing quality footwear made of premium materials matched with impeccable craftsmanship. Moreover, apt for the name of the company, it strives to protect the environment through the use of sustainable materials
