Founded on quality craftsmanship and Yankee ingenuity, that boot helped build a brand and set new standards in the footwear industry. Its quality, authenticity and rugged outdoor heritage continuesinspiring new collections for today. This site pays tribute to the yellow boots heritage and influenceto the icon that built a brand.
Nathan Swartz started it all in 1952 with the Abington Shoe Company in South Boston. His two sons, Sidney and Herman, joined him a few years later and relocated the company to Newmarket, New Hampshire. In 1973, Sidney introduced one of the first waterproof leather boots of its kind. Incorporating premium full-grain nubuck leather, thick rubber lug soles and unprecedented craftsmanship, the yellow boot was an instant classic.
He named it the Timberland. The Timberland® brand was known for quality handsewn boat shoes in Europe in the early 1980s. But by the mid-1980s, everyone wanted to know more about the yellow boot. Timberland distributors attended shoe shows across the continent.
The rugged, waterproof nubuck leather was like nothing else ever seen on display at these shows. Soon the yellow boot could be found at high-end sporting goods stores, department stores and men's fashion stores throughout Italy, the United Kingdom and Germany. In Italy, the epicenter of the yellow boot explosion, the rise in popularity can in part be credited to the "Paninaro". The Paninaro movement in the early 1980s was a subculture of youths that were known for their regular hangouts at the "Al Panino" bara popular sandwich and burger joint in Milan's Via Agnello district.They chose the yellow boot as a cornerstone of their fashionable style. By the mid-1980s, the yellow boot was adopted into popular culture in Italy, appealing to a consumer-driven middle class that was searching for a "Made in the USA" look.
