Timberland does the best boots in the world. Take this from a Finn (Well, Finn-Swede, but that’s just a technicality) who has survived snow storms and over two meter high snowbanks. I have the boots that have the thicker soles and they have yet to fail me. And these babies seem as good as they do. Just a tad lighter, me thinks. I think I need to find my nearest Shuh and give these a try. Might come in handy when winter comes (Yes, I know. Har de har).
