Our mission is to equip people to make a difference in their world. We do this by creating outstanding products and by trying to make a difference in the communities where we live and work. Places like this are usually for talking about the year some company was founded, how many people it employs, and why the particular kind of thing it makes is without a doubt the best in the universe. If you're looking for history, check out our timeline. If you want to know what Timberland is about, keep reading. We're a big company made up of a lot of small parts and incredibly talented people. We make boots, shoes, clothes and gear that are comfortable enough to wear all day and rugged enough for all year. We don't rest on our accomplishments. If we did, we'd only have ever made one waterproof leather boot. Our place in this world is bigger than the things we put in it. So we volunteer in our communities. Making new products goes hand in hand with making things better. That means reducing our carbon footprint and being as environmentally responsible as we can. We love every minute we spend outdoors, and we work hard to create things that make that experience better in every way.
