Yes, these run large compared to other boots I have purchased. Overall these have been great boots. I purchased for casual use and ended up wearing them for work boots. Granted I have a desk job but I do work in a recycling facility and they have held up very well considering. The uppers are in great shape, unfortunately I have worn the soles down to a point where they are starting to separate. Back on Backcountry to purchase another pair.

Greenwashed 2 Year Product

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

I always got compliments with these more lifestyle boots. I partly purchased these for their comfort and looks as well as their title, Earthkeepers, would suggest with recycled content they use that they are environmentally conscious produced boots. As the soles wore thin I looked into resoling them and every local place turned me down and told me they could not be resoled. Also, Timberland has no resoling program, nor can you buy new soles from them. Beyond using more environmentally sustainable products, resoling a boot or shoe is the best thing you can do to extend the life of a boot and keep the waste out of the landfills. It would be like having to replace a car every time you needed new tires. Sadly Timberland uses this Earthkeeper marketing terms and illusion of sustainable products to sell one time use boots. This term in the industry is called Greenwashing where companies bank on putting a green label on their products but behind the scenes have dishonorable business practices. This boot did teach me to look for a boot with a Goodyear Welt so you can have it for life no matter if the laces are not made of recycled plastic because having one boot for 40 years is more sustainable than purchasing a Timberland boot that lasts for only two years.

First, it runs large, I’ve worn size thirteen for thirty years, this was the first boot that ran one size to big so order down one size or you will be returning. As for the boot, the fit and feel is awesome and comfortable, the leather is soft and upon the first wearing feels broken in. This boot can be a casual wear boot, or everyday everywhere boot. 100% satisfied, just remember the sizing when ordering, and you won’t be sorry for the purchase.

Initial impressions were pretty high on these bad boys after reading reviews. I can say I'm glad I made the decision to go with these. The fit is amazing! they do run large so just make sure to size down and you will still be able to wear a thicker sock. For a boot their pretty light and not too bulky. break in period was very minimal and felt really great right out of the box. Durability seems great so far after a little over months of use. I did pick up some Waximum by Timberland to make them waterproof since we deal with a lot of snow and they would get a little soaked after walking the pup. Overall I can't believe I didn't try these sooner. If you need new boots, look no further.

If you are looking for a great pair of brown boots that can match casual wear up to business casual I would definitely recommend these! These boots did't have any wear in time for me; they fit great from that first time waring them. I certainly appreciate I found these boots!

Almost 4 years after purchase

I bought these almost 4 years ago. Didn't wear them for a while because I felt they were insufficient in the snow/cold. But, I started wearing them Spring/Summer/Fall because my other Timberland knock-offs fell apart. I waterproofed these probably twice myself to really seal them well, and it's rewarded me with a great looking boot that's really broken in beautifully. It's my most comfortable boot. It's light and has great traction. It just molds to my foot now. I added some custom insoles. These won't keep you warm in weather under 30 degrees, but they're attractive, lightweight and durable.

I wear these almost every day from fall to spring. I've now owned 3 pairs over several years. The great thing about these boots is that they're not overly heavy, stiff or clunky. They're super comfortable and great for the casual office and trips to the job site. Only negative is the longevity of the sole. They wear quickly. But I still love 'em. They run large, and really form to your foot once they break in. I typically wear a 10. I buy 9s in these.

Great boots. The stitching and overall construction seems pretty solid. I treated mine with mink oil and saddle soap, but even without that they had a level of waterproofing. The two pull tabs on the back are a nice detail. The bottom one is more for puling on the boots, wherein the top one is for lacing through any additional lace length (not able to fit a finger through). One of my favorite features is the use of recyclable materials. That being said, the materials used are great. The soles have great traction on icy sidewalks, slushy streets, and hard-packed stairs, alike. They are holding up great, and I expect them to patina over time and to age very well.

I love the leather these boots are made out of, it is beautiful! I'd recommend sizing down quite a bit because leather stretches and these run about a size large. Overall an awesome boot with goat skin inside!

Fantastic leather boots. The style is awesome, and they are extremely functional. Not completely waterproof, but will stand up to plenty of moisture and snow. These have been indispensable as we get into winter in Utah! I found these to be about 1/2 size large (I'm an 11 in just about every shoe ever), but they are great with heavy wool socks.

I bought these for nights out. Im not a sneaker man, and sometimes logger boots are to bulky. Waterproof, comfortable, I figured I'd give them a try. Very happy. Idk why people say they run big. I wear 11 , 1.5 got 11, fit good. I will edit review after winter and let you know how they held up.

Great Casual Boots

True to size

I gave this as a give for my brother because he was anxious to get it. Below his opinion: "I've done the most extensive research within all retailers and until I cross my way with this pair of boots I had to bought them ASAP, totally waterproof and as the "earth keepers" version from Timberland the sole is made out from recycle materials and that's pretty quite cool, very comfy as well and they appear to be endurable for any usage that you can think of, from walking through the woods to give them a casual look they are the ones for you. I had to lower down one size cause I read that they run a little bit large and I indeed made the right choice, they fit as expected..."

runs abnormally large

my foot has been measured as size 9. the size 8 was still too large for me and needed to be returned. i'm not sure if this is consistent for timberland, but if it is i guess i'm out of luck because 8 is the smallest men's size....

I like the look of these boots in the burnished style. It adds a bit of contrast to and otherwise boring boot. I usually wear a 10 in these boots the 9.5 fit well.

I was given these as a gift, and so far they're super comfortable; nice, soft leather. and flexible soles. I also think they look pretty darn good, especially considering the price, which is low for fashionable boots. I also appreciate the green story, which makes me feel like these are easier on the planet than other boots. One quick note: These are casual boots, and not really for serious hiking or backpacking. Also, folks aren't kidding when they say these boots run BIG; I normally wear an 11 or 11.5, but had to size down to a 10 for these bad boys ... which meant a couple of exchanges to get the right size.

Like everyone else has said in the reviews, they do run a little big. I went down a half size and they fit great! Very nice leather and solid sole. Very comfortable for everyday use. I mainly use them as a casual boot. Bought them at the beginning of the winter and they have worked very well in the snow and ice.

Soft and flexible. I mainly wear them as dress boots. They definitely run a full size too large, I would suggest downsizing at least 1 size on this boot.
