Good to know

The mixed-media Davis Square Chukka is exclusively available in men’s sizing. Although generally running true to size, a handful of reviews mention that the forefoot runs narrow and suggest going half a size up for a roomier toe area. Diligently poring over the brand’s sizing guide will aid in picking out the right size, depending on one’s snug preference.

Added cushioning is felt through the removable OrthoLite® insole, which allows wearers to replace with its own orthotics for a more customized fit.

Available in a multitude of neutral palettes, the Davis Square Leather and Fabric Chukka can be worn not only by men but women as well. With most of the females taking on more risks when it comes to fashion choices, this sneaker boot is as versatile as its design.

  • Put on a baby blue denim blouse with light blue skinny jeans, and a Navy Nubuck colorway of the Timberland Davis Square Chukka on feet for that trendy denim on denim style.
  • Look effortlessly chill for casual Fridays at work by wearing khaki pants, a gray long-sleeve cotton pullover, and some Davis Square Chukka shoes in Wheat Nubuck hue.

Ensuring to keep the brand’s environmental advocacies, 50% recycled bottles make up the textile lining, Cordura® fabric comes from 100% recycled polyester, and water and energy-saving leather make up the durable Davis Square Mixed-media footwear.

Starting as the Abington Shoe Company in 1952, it caught the attention of the shoe industry when it released its first waterproof cleats in 1962. More commonly known as the “6-inch Yellow Cleat,” it incorporated 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. The same year pioneered the launch of sneakers and has never stopped infusing a rustic appeal in every design.

Incorporating many of its eco-friendly materials, Timberland launches the Davis Square Chukka dressed in a tried-and-tested Cordura® material, which is known for its durability. It adds the rugged adventure cred of the shoe.

  • The insoles print “Nature Needs Heroes.”
