Our Timberloop™ EK utility boots are specifically designed for circularity. These hikers have a unique sole construction where with a cut of one seam, the outsoles can be taken off and each part ultimately put into its own unique recycling stream. To help close the “loop,” this new construction method lessens the chemical-based cements used, and the removable sock booties are made using ReBOTL™ fabric of 100% recycled plastic. To make this vision of circularity a reality, be sure to send these hikers back to us when you’re done with them through Timberland’s circular design platform, Timberloop™.

Made with scrap rubber, Recycled Rubber consists of 34% recycled rubber yet it still delivers the traction and durability you demand whether communing with nature or commuting to work.
