#1 When was Timberland founded?
Timberland dates way back to 1928. Founded in Boston, it wasn’t until 1973 that Sidney Swartz introduced the signature yellow boot to the world. Originally created for workmen the boot was designed to be waterproof and hard-wearing, perfect for building sites or heavy-duty workdays. But the shoe was quickly picked up by the fashion crowd, becoming a staple in the hip-hop scene in the 1990’s as Notorious B.I.G and Wu-Tang Clan elevated the boot from workwear to a must-have and prompting the brand to extend their range to include Timberland boots for men, women and kids.
