I’ve never been one to shy away from trekking through uneven, muddy terrain to enjoy a spontaneous hike or catch a remarkable view reserved only for those on foot, whether it be in the mountains or in the city. I enjoy getting out in nature with an eco-friendly product just as much – that’s why the Eagle Bay Boot from Timberland has worked out perfectly for me.
Over the years, I’ve learned to be conscious about what gets added to my closet and have grown to be proud of my daily selection – including the stylish, yet responsible, Eagle Bay Boot, featuring a 34 percent recycled outsole.
The first element after noticing the style of a new piece is how it feels – that certainly applies particularly to boots and shoes. An unexpected, tasteful touch tends to sway me when I’m deciding whether to purchase or pass. It also speaks volumes about the company behind the product. And when something can deliver both form and function in more than one way, then that’s the best of both worlds.
When I tried on Timberland’s Eagle Bay Boots, I immediately noticed that it combines a rugged, outdoor-friendly feel while seamlessly integrating the comfort and lightness of an athletic shoe (and the eco-friendly construction that’s so important these days). I found that Timberland’s SensorFlex Comfort System technology gets the job done quite nicely. It consists of a three-layer outsole, with each part made for comfort flexibility and unique traction, plus style.
I’ve already broken these shoes in throughout Los Angeles both on the streets and out on the nature trails. I feel like I am walking on clouds, a truly unique feature not often found in boots. Rugged, light and eco-friendly, the Eagle Bay Boots are perfectly made – they’re a great addition to a carefully curated closet.
