You don’t have to be an extreme outdoor person to know the two brands that we are going to talk about today, Timberland and Dr. Martens, and their popular boots.
Not only that, but you have also probably owned one or the other, or both, at some point in your life.
While we have usually focused more on outdoor activities that can be considered sports or hobbies, such as hiking, climbing, trail running, backpacking, today’s comparison will be all about boots that are more for work or daily wear (even though Timberland offers a few hiking shoes too).
As an example, think about those who wear these boots in the city in winter as fashion items that keep them warm, but also those who work in the woods and in rural areas that need durable shoes.
As a curiosity, these were the “cool boots” when we were, well, let’s say younger.
These boot brands stand for much more than being popular and cool. Even with the competition from other brands that they have to face nowadays, they still stand as two of the top outdoor boots brands.
This is largely due to their impeccable quality and outdoor-friendly design from soles to stitching.
So, how much do you really know about these brands? What about their products, materials and prices?
And also, when it comes to Timberland versus Dr. Martens, which brand would be the better choice?
Well, let’s take a look and try to find out!
