Not impressed

  • Fit: Runs large

I read the reviews and decided to give this boot a try, thinking it would be a good all-around shoe. They definitely run a full size too large, and seem pretty wide. The construction with one layer of leather, many seams, no insulation, and really no support from the flimsy ankles and thin sole made me return these. Also made in China. I really couldn't see myself doing any serious backpacking or hiking in these boots. That said- they are beautiful, and would be great at work (if you work in an office) or downtown. But for $150+ there are simply better boots out there.

Still stoked on these boots. Wearing in nicely. I'm a bad person and haven't used any leather treatment. Left shoe is starting to wear a little fast due to the clutch on my motorcycle. Overall still really happy with these!

Great boot, runs a bit small

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

High quality boot with style and comfortable. After doing some research I bought a half size bigger and I'm glad I did, they run a bit small; I usually wear a size 10 so I ordered a size 9.5, I was a littler nervous but they fit great! Suggest breaking in before using!

super stoked!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

After reading the reviews and downsizing from my usual 11 to a 9.5, it was still a bit too large. so i exchanged them for a 9.0. i'm picky and like a snug fit, though. with reasonably thick smart wool socks (basically as thick as i go, same thickness as what i wear in my ski boots) my toes just barely touch the front of the boot now. yes, yes, i know you are supposed to give your feet some space, but i also know these boots will work around my foot and stretch to my foot with a little time. plus, the sole juts out more than regular shoes and since these are work boots (for me) i'd hate to be carrying something heavy and eat shit because i'm not used to a plank attached to my foot. also, i probably won't do too much hiking in these. so a regular 11 down to a 9.0 was ideal for me. fairly simple, fairly lightweight boot. nothing fancy but a pair you can definitely wear out?depending on your style of course. oh yeah, as noted in other comments, they are NOT waterproof (the tongue is separate from the shoe until the bottom) and NOT insulated. if you DO want to wear big ass socks, then, obviously only go to like one and a half sizes smaller than your usual fit. looking forward to many years with these bad boys!

Great Boot - Comfortable and Soft

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I love these boots. They are well built and fairly sturdy while still being soft and flexible. They lace up really well and don't pinch around the top of the ankle like some boots I have had in the past do. I agree with some other comments claiming they run big. I wear a size 12 and went with 11 in these boots. I still wear wool socks with the 11's and they are not too tight.

I recommended using NikWax leather lotion on these boots. It helps keep the leather conditioned and protects against water and dirt.

I've had these boots for a little over a week now and so far think that they're just the Cat's Pajamas. While they were a bit stiff at first, they've started to break in nicely. I actually appreciate a break in period with my gear as it's usually a good indicator of a well built product.

Wintertime in my city is definitely rainy and full of puddles, so far these boots have kept me well insulated and dry, we'll see how they hold up throughout the rest of this Winter.

As for fit, they do run a little on the large side, which is a huge plus for me. I technically have "Double Wide or EE" sized shoes and wear either a 12 or 13 most of the time. I have these in a size 12 and can fit a midweight ski sock as well as my freakishly wide feet in these without issue. Like the title says; I have great expectations for these boots.

Update: January 2013

After a good session of NikWax Leather Waterproofer, these boots have held up against rain and snow without any issues.
I especially like the leather "hoops" at the heel so that I can wrap my laces around securely and not have to lace them up all the way to the top grommets.

If I were to buy this product again (which I very well might in the future [I have a tendency to destroy boots]), I would get a different "color" just because the suede siding seems a little thin. Other than that, no complaints here!

Good looking and Comfortable

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had these boots for about a year, and have been really happy with how they have held up. I mainly wear them as dress boots, but have also taken them on trails, and they handle both really well.
Discaimer: I did a gear test of these boots.

great boot

I bought these boots to wear out in town this winter, something to keep my feet dry and still look good. There is absolutely no insulation in these boots so pair them with a some wool socks. They are comfortable right out of the box and take not time to break in. There is more than enough traction on the sole to work in snow and ice and well as mud and rain. The boots clean right off with very little effort.

Sick boot

Lace up. It's cold outside. You got to change into your boots to ski. Then you get to come back to these comfy, awesome, warm, wonderful Timby's at the car at the end of the day.

Good casual boot

These are comfortable and light. Soles wear quickly and they are only waterproof to the base of the tongue as the tongue isnt joined to the boot so water can get in from pretty much bottom of ankle height. I'd call them splash proof. They are also not insulated so they are not good for long exposure to cold. So long as you know all this this is a comfortable good looking boot.

Great Boot!

These boots feel great. They hug the ankle nicely and are much lighter than I expected. They also look amazing and exactly as pictured on this website. I took other customer's advice and ordered a smaller size. I usually wear a 9 or 9.5. I went with 8.5 and they fit like a glove.
Also, I placed this order yesterday and received it today.... and I live in Canada! Excellent service from backcountry.com

Cheers.

Great boots, run big

Loved these boots for the few moments I had them, unfortunately had to return them as they were too large. I usually wear a 9-9 1/2 and, as other reviewers noted, these boots definitely run large. Very comfortable, stylin', and great construction. I will be getting a pair of 8 1/2 as soon as they are available.

a good boot

They have served me well from hiking to landscaping. The waterproofing is good. The depression era styling is perfect. Sole's a bit week but livable. I do think they're replacable however.

2 years of wear

Here are mine after about two years of use. Minus the dirt they're still doing well even after lots of ankle deep mud and water and little to no additional care. The sizes run different. Typically a boot is a size smaller than say your running shoe; these are smaller. I wear a 10.5 or 11 in addidas but my timbs are 9.5. My only complaint is the soft soles. They wear out a bit quick for 160 $ boot. I am going to try to get them replaced though.

Love em, but they run very LARGE

I'm really happy with these boots. They look great, and are very comfortable out of the box. The sole is solid, grippy - seems a lot like vibram but it's Timberland's "green rubber" compound - seems really sticky/grippy so far. The color of the boot exactly matches the image on this site. The most important thing to note is that this boot runs really large. I originally ordered a Men's 10. It was WAY too big. Based on how big the 10 was, I replaced it with an 8.5 which is honestly, still I tiny bit big. I usually wear a men's 9.5 or 10. So unless you are going to wear really heavy oldschool wool socks, I would suggest downsizing at least 1 size on this boot....possibly even more.

Wow

Coolest looking 6in boot out there. When I first got these, I passed them around the office and we took turns smelling the leather; it's got that freshly oiled baseball glove scent to it. This is a great looking boot, perfect for fall weather and fall casual apparel. With a thick wool sock (this boot is not insulated), this will do fine this winter too. The Earthkeeper story is just the icing on the cake. Because this boot is not insulated, I would go a 1/2 size smaller.
