Since I live in New England in the US, every year I struggle to balance style and comfort. Timberland shoes have been a staple in my winter wardrobe for the past couple years. I bought both of these pairs of two years ago, wear them almost every day in the winter and there has been no signs of wear or degrading. The shoes cost $170 per pair but the quality is priceless. They are by far the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. The best part is, is that Timberlands don’t go out of style!
