I am a proud owner and a witness to the value of a pair of Timberland boots. Timberland creates well-constructed and sturdy work wear boots and they have lasted me well through many a strong winter like the one engulfing DC this week. However, the only pair I have are in black and I've been eyeing this Burnished Brown pair from the Earthkeepers Collection. The materials are mostly recycled and organic which is good for the earth and my feet. While the reviews for this particular model are impressive, I have not had the chance to purchase them quite yet, but they are on my short wish list. I'm not a hiker so these boots will be worn around town or in the city with jeans and a denim shirt. I'll give an update on fit, feel, and function when I'm able to try them out in the street.
