Our Timberloop™ women’s mid hikers are specifically designed for circularity. These hikers have a unique sole construction where with a cut of one seam, the outsoles can be taken off and each part ultimately put into its own unique recycling stream. To help close the “loop,” this new construction method lessens the chemical-based cements used, and the removable sock booties are made using ReBOTL™ fabric of 100% recycled plastic. To make this vision of circularity a reality, be sure to send these hikers back to us when you’re done with them through Timberland’s circular design platform, Timberloop™. These boots also feature Responsible Natural Rubber outsoles that seek to guard against rainforest deforestation by sourcing from responsibly managed rubber plantations.
