What’s So Great?
What is so great about the Timberland Women’s White Ledge Hiking Boots?
I was precisely looking for hiking boots because I prefer spending time in nature, whenever I have time.
Because I have a job that allows me to wear any kind of clothes and shoes, I did not have to look for something elegant or simple.
Timberland offers two brownish colors, so that may be a problem if you are looking for something more colorful.
Anyway, I did not mind having dark brown hiking boots…dark brown is such a rich looking color!
What mattered more to me was their durability and their ‘performance.’
I knew perfectly well what I could expect from my Timberland boots, but still, I needed to reassure myself, that I was getting a new, and even more improved pair.
Love The Leather
The uppers are made of premium full-grain, waterproof leather that keeps my feet dry and warm one hundred percent.
My previous pair was waterproof too, as one of my top priorities was to have boots that didn’t let water ruin them.
They are, as the manufacturer says, a seam-sealed waterproof construction. I can totally agree with that.
Also, I was looking for leather, because I want natural materials for my boots.
The tongue, and cushions around the ankles are a combination of leather and polyester fabric, completely breathable and soft.
Airflow is guaranteed for the ultimate dryness I am looking for.
My hiking boots were the exact size that I ordered online. There was no problem for me wearing them even with thick socks.
I didn’t feel any discomfort, or problem with circulation. They are wide enough, and the lace topping helps me tie them up as tight as I want.
The tongue is soft enough, so I don’t really feel the lace pressure on the top of my foot. It’s really good.
As shown in the photos, these boots are a combination of D-ring and speed hook lacing.
There is no way for the laces to tear, or loosen up when I walk, hike, or occasionally run (not really meant for jogging though).
EVA Footbed Crucial
The mid-soles have the well known removable, dual-density EVA foot bed. EVA is known for its bubbly comfort.
Timberland’s boots have perforated EVA mid-soles that provide additional air circulation. There is a moisture wicking textile lining that keeps my feet dry comEVafort on the inside.
As I said before, I have worn Timberland boots before I got this new pair. You could say that I am used to their quality, so I knew exactly what I was looking for.
For instance, I wanted my boots to have toe bumpers (and heel protection) and a durable, man- made out-sole.
Of course, Timberland again caught my interest, as these boots have all of these traits. The outsoles are well lifted from the ground, but not to extremes.
Walking in snow is their specialty, but any terrain is a piece of cake for these outsoles. They grip tight, and have excellent traction.
The lugs below are strategically placed to follow the curved center of the pressure path.
Timberland says that these shoes are especially designed to follow four natural motions of the foot: braking, supporting, flexing and propelling.
These hiking boots (just like any of Timberland’s boots) by far proved that they are indeed following these four natural motions.
They are flexible, lightweight (1 lbs. 15 oz per pair) and easy to walk in.
Timberland Women’s White Ledge Hiking Boots have so many qualities, and they literally surpassed most, if not all, of my expectations.
I know that this pair too, will endure all sorts of weather (even now I can see that they are functioning well during rainy days) and terrains.
Timberland is a brand that creates durable boots, and that’s why I stay loyal to them.
