This Bradstreet Half Cab Chukka from Timberland features a look that one would quickly recognize. Its high-top construction is built with a nubuck upper that gives it its premium vibe, but what really stands out the most is its midsole accented with speckled details (for some colorways). Behind this eye-catching feature is the Sensorflex technology, which has a triple-layer suspension system that flexes with every move for a stable, flexible and supportive ride.

Although officially established in 1973, Timberland’s rich history can be traced way back to 1933. It started initially as the Abington Shoe Company that produced hand-stitched shoes for the wholesale market. In 1965, through founder Nathan Swartz, the company introduced a then-pioneering injection-molding technology into the industry that led to the creation of waterproof shoes, or cleats in particular.

From then on, Timberland’s product line expanded to casual and boat shoes and, eventually, clothing and women's shoes as well when the brand further went into the international market. By the 1990s to 2000s, Timberland also included accessories and kid's shoes as into its lineup of products.

The brand maintained a solid stand in the footwear industry over the years. In 2013, it released the Timberland Earthkeepers Bradstreet Collection which includes shoes that took inspiration from a classic chukka model and enhanced its performance for optimum comfort and street-ready look.

One shoe in this collection is the Timberland Bradstreet Half Cab Chukka. It has a high-top cleat with a Sensorflex sole and a nubuck leather upper. As part of the brand's commitment to the environment, this shoe also utilizes environment-friendly materials such as 100% organic cotton laces, recycled PET lining and footbed cover, Ortholite PU footbed that uses 5% recycled rubber, and the partly recycled (34%) rubber pods into the sole.

  • The Timberland logo is displayed on the heel counter and tongue.
  • An added reinforcement along the side walls is of leather material with perforation detailing.
