My first boat shoe - when I had no idea of their history or their place in Ivy style (since I had no idea about Ivy style) - was when I went to college and saw an ad in the college orientation guide for a dark burnt-orange boat shoe from Timberland and I wanted it, but it was (from memory) $80. This was when Timberland was still a highish-end company.Todays footwear are Timberland 3-Eyelet Camp Mocs, fitted with the Gum lugged soles. Comfortable to walk all over in and durable beyond one's expectations!
I recently picked up a pair of brown leather Timberland boat shoes. They have hard rubber soles but these are not lugged. Very comfortable and light.Todays footwear are Timberland 3-Eyelet Camp Mocs, fitted with the Gum lugged soles. Comfortable to walk all over in and durable beyond one's expectations!
A picture (photo) is worth a thousand wordsI started the day in Chippewa service oxfords and I'm currently wearing Adidas running shoes, having gone out for a run.
Not to shabby. This is our temp here.70 deg. here in Chicago and it's November!
So sad to hear! Hopefully AE will bring them back. There was a period back in the late 2000s when the Macs were phased out for a few seasons and then were brought back. Let's hope this is the case again.The MacNeil design is a favorite of mine, but alas, just two weeks ago I gave our youngest grandson my last pair. Heavy sigh!
