Winter Fashion: Timberland boots

Hinsdale Central has seen a relatively new breakthrough in fashion: Timberland winter boots.

Timberland boots, known widely as “Timbs,” have been popular at Central in years past but nothing quite like this 2014-15 winter season. I wear the boots on a regular basis and the boots are seen in vast majorities in the Central hallways, primarily during snowy, winter days.

“I love Timbs because of their durability in any weather,” said Jim Walker, junior. “They are great for the snow.”

The Timberland fashion doesn’t start and end as a predominately male look. Girls, too, are beginning to wear the boots.

“Timbs are expensive but definitely worth it,” said Jordan Bradshaw, senior. “I wear them a lot.”

The sleek feel and catchy look is what makes the boots so popular. Also, the boots are waterproof and durable, which makes them reliable for years after purchase, despite being expensive – up to $200.

I would recommend the boots to anybody who wants a long-lasting boot for winters to come.
