Good to know

This addition to Timberland’s roster of low-profile sneakers is exclusively available in men’s sizing. Most of the reviews mention getting this a full size down from one’s typical measurements to secure a snugger fit on the forefoot.

Apart from the triple cushioning provision of the Aerocore™ technology, added comfort is felt with the OrthoLite® detachable footbed. Having a breathable material and anti-microbial properties ensure a healthy feet environment.

The available color variations for the Timberland Cross Mark PT Oxford is well-received by shoe aficionados because of how neutral and wearable it is. Plain hues in black, brown, green, and navy blue, though as non-assuming, makes for a great match to any piece/s of clothing, especially when going about one’s rigorous daily grind of rushing to a business meeting in khaki or doing work errands in jeans.

This men’s Cross Mark Oxford in plain toe version features an upper swathed in silver-rated high-quality nubuck leather and reinforced with thermoplastic urethane (TPR) welt for added durability.

Soft textile lines the internal counter, while the OrthoLite® removable insole coupled with the padded tongue and collar offers a double dose of plush comfort and cushion.

Durable, textured outsole innovation is highlighted through Timberland’s Aerocore™ technology. This triple cushioning system features comfort and flexibility, durability, and increased energy return, all packed in this lightweight shoe.

Originally known as the Abington Shoe Company in 1952, Timberland gained popularity in 1962 when it released the first waterproof cleats - more commonly known as the “6-inch Yellow Cleat” - by incorporating injection-molding technology. 

Due to its popularity and its waterproofing effectivity, the shoe manufacturer garnered a vast following and officially changed its name to The Timberland Company in 1978.

Deciding to expand to other footwear, Timberland started crafting sneakers in 1978 and has never stopped since then.

The Timberland Cross Mark PT Oxford is among the Cross Mark models that are coveted for its sleek and timeless silhouette that offers versatility without compromising the comfort. Other models belonging to this category are Cross Mark PT Chukka, Cross Mark GTX Chukka, and Cross Mark Utility Boot, among others.

  • A contrasting strip of light brown leather with stitching details sit atop the tongue.
  • TPU wrap sits between the midsole and upper for added durability.
