You asked and we listened! 

In 1973, the Timberland yellow boot was introduced by Sidney Swartz – son of Herman Swartz, the part-owner of the Abington Shoe Company (now known as Timberland Company, after Herman Swartz bought out the entire Abington Shoe Company in 1955 and renamed it Timberland Company in 1978).

Originally, the humble yellow boot was intended for the hard working New Englander in Newmarket, New Hampshire – where Timberland was based. It was never meant to become a fashion icon. After all, it was form, function and craftsmanship that inspired Timberland to create its yellow boot, not trends and runways. In the ‘80s, Timberland exploded onto the international scene and inevitably became the must-have boot for urban- and street culture and catwalks alike. By 1985, over a million pairs of Timberland boots were sold and in the 90′s, rappers like DMX, Notorious B.I.G. and Das EFX started endorsing Timberland – tripling sales.
