The roots of Timberland came all the way back to 1952 and was then known as The Abington Company which was at first doing contract jobs for other industrialists. It was in 1973 that the company officially became The Timberland Company. The waterproof cleats of the company obtained wide popularity, leading the brand to add casual and boat shoes to its collection during the years 1978-1979.

Around the 1980’s, The Timberland Company made a huge expansion not just in the US but internationally. A larger factory in Tennessee was then bought by the company in 1984 where they moved its manufacturing and at the same time made an international expansion, firstly in Italy then across Europe.
