Timberland, the global outdoor lifestyle brand takes a fresh approach to the core attributes that have made the brand an icon since 1973 -- releasing an all-new footwear style for Spring, dubbed the Madbury, to take the next step toward a greener future.
The latest addition to a long line of influential Timberland® footwear designs, the Madbury sneaker boot takes stylistic cues from the iconic Timberland 6” Boot with a distinct mid-top silhouette. “We have taken craft to the next level with the Madbury,” said Chris McGrath, VP of Timberland Global Footwear Design. “It’s dynamic and a true expression of fashion meets function with modern styling aesthetics that resonate with the youthful culture.” The Madbury features prominent “tree” branding in a nod to the streetwear sensibilities that made its predecessor a design classic. An aggressive geometric design imbues the shoes with a streamlined aesthetic that easily traverses city streets and country trails.
The upper itself utilises Better Leather, an environmentally-conscious leather sourced from a tannery earning a Silver rating by the Leather Working Group. Tanneries are independently judged based on responsible energy use, waste management and water treatment. Timberland’s proprietary ReBOTL™ fabric – of which at least 50 percent is made from recycled plastic bottles – is used in the upper and linings. Using ReBOTL™ fabric reduces environmental impact while still providing enhanced breathability and moisture-wicking capabilities. Meanwhile, a lightweight foam midsole meets a rugged outsole pattern inspired by the Classic 6” Boot to provide all-terrain traction.
As we enter a new season, responsible fashion will be crucial in creating a greener world. With its range of eco-conscious features and a cutting-edge design that elevates all-day comfort, put your best foot forward in the Madbury as we step into a greener future for all.
