The Timberland work boots can be styled with jeans, skirts or dress pants, depending on your gender and personal tastes. The iconic yellow Timberland work boot has been a popular fashion staple for many fashion enthusiasts for decades. The brand was first introduced in the United States in 1973, and by the mid-1980s the brand was known worldwide for quality hand-sewn boat shoes and boots.
In Asia, the iconic yellow work boot is a symbol of individuality or independence. The Timberland website states that "To many, wearing the yellow boot means you're ready to chase your dreams. That's exactly what the 'Boot Your Dream' project was meant to inspire in Taiwan, rallying thousands of young people to pledge their commitment to pursuing their own dreams." Timberlands are also a big fashion trend in the hip-hop culture. The boot can be seen on the feet of major artists from Pharrell Williams to Nas. The brand has gained major popularity because of the versatility of the shoes. "You could chill out in a hot club & look fly with that boot. And you could work at a construction site with the boot all scuffed and look even better,” states music producer David Z.
