Who should buy the Timberland Euro Sprint Hiker
The gorgeously-styled boot from Timberland is recommended for:
- outdoor enthusiasts who want a good-looking boot for casual walks around town and backcountry hikes
- a leather boot that doesn't break the bank
- a lightweight pair of boots
Who should NOT buy the boot
The Euro Sprint Hiker is not deemed as robust and grippy enough to meet the demands of multi-day hikes and challenging terrains. If you need a real performer on the trail, consider the KEEN Pyrenees or the Salomon X Ultra 4 Mid GTX.
Recycled yet durable rubber outsole
The outsole of this mid-cut hiking boot is made of 15% recycled rubber. The large lugs on the sides provide stability while the circular boots on the center provide 360-degree traction. Its textured appearance prevents muck build-up.
On the downside, most hikers believe that the grip on this Timberland boot is not sufficient for moderate-to-advanced hiking trips. It is also not recommended for slippery surfaces.
The comfortable confines of Euro Sprint Hiker
The reviewers have described this Timberland boot as blissfully comfortable from the get go. Actually, it was the comfort aspect that convinced them to buy the boot multiple times.
No rubbing or hot spots have been reported either. Also, the boot's tall collar provides great ankle support without being too high and intrusive.
Here are the features that greatly contribute to the comfort and support experienced in the Euro Sprint Hiker:
- The nubuck leather upper of this day hiking boot protects hikers from outdoor obstacles. It has a breathable lining which helps keep a fresh, in-shoe feel
- Comfort is enhanced through its cushioned tongue and collar
- For fit management, its lacing system includes round lace and metal loops
- Additionally, a lace keeper maintains the upright position of the tongue to prevent unwanted friction
A shock-absorbent midsole
The Timberland Euro Sprint Hiker boots have an ethylene-vinyl acetate or EVA midsole. This foam is a rubber-like material that grants shock absorption and cushioning.
The wearers were especially happy with the craftsmanship and quality of the Euro Sprint Hiker. They loved the supple nubuck material and how well the boot is constructed overall.
The boot is living up to the standards of a reputable outdoor brand.
Style must be the best selling point
These boots "make your feet look nice and neat," according to a reviewer. More than a few people are delighted that this Timberland boot does not appear huge and geeky like a lot of other hiking boots do.
