Timberland 'Women's 6-Inch Premium D-Ring Waterproof Boots' Review

Timberland 'Women's 6-Inch Premium D-Ring Waterproof Boots' Review

I love me some shoes, and I currently have about half my bookshelf full of shoes. People walk into my room and is taken aback by just how much shoes I own but if they look closely, I never buy more than one of the same kind of shoe (although I will break that rule for booties).

And I did not have a pair of Timberlands, or anything similar, so during Thanksgiving I purchased a pair, and I don’t think I’ve worn another pair of shoes since (I’m also one of those people that wear the shoe for a good chunk of time after I get them).

Let’s just talk about the shoes shall we?


They are definitely not the kind of shoes I would describe as elegant, but more as chunky and similar to hiking boots.

But I think that’s also what is appealing to me. I tent to buy a lot of classic/elegant kind of clothes (i.e. trench coats, blouses, etc.) but sometimes you want something that will not only tone it down a bit, but also bring you back down to Earth a little, so to speak.

And I think these do a very good job at that. I can wear it with a pair of jeans, a nice blouse, and still look extremely put together.


I won’t lie, my first 3-5 wears of this shoe, it strained the arch of my foot a lot and it was extremely tight at the top. I couldn’t even walk through my campus without wobbling (keep in mind, my campus is about a 15-minute walk from edge to edge).

But I gave it the benefit of the doubt and dismissed it as because they were new.

And I was right. After I managed to break into it, my feet situated, and the tightness disappeared, and they became the most comfortable pair of shoes I own.

So if you get past that initial pain, you will be a proud owner of a very comfortable pair of shoes.


For a pair of shoes, I have never worried about whether or not they are going to break. I trust the brand enough where I know I will be keeping these shoes for a very long time. Even after having worn them for a month, they shoe very little signs of wear and tear. And even if there is a little bit of wear showing, it just makes the shoe more attractive in my opinion.


Definitely worth it.

However, I will note that I never get a pair of shoes for the heck of it, or for the trend. I have to be able to envision wearing it with the clothes I own and make more than one outfit with the shoe before I even think about committing to purchasing it.

So for me, I’m all about it.

General Cons  

I only have two negative things to say about this shoe.

It is an absolute pain to get it on and to tie it up. Because of the kind of laces they come with, you have to do a double knot or it will come lose really easily.

The second con is that it is quite a heavy shoe. Now, it is meant for heavy duty, so it makes sense why, but if you are a traveler like me who also over packs, this shoe might be a nightmare to travel with. (And then you have to keep in mind wearing it on you when you fly, because imagine the amount of work you would have to do to take it off and then put it back on at an airport…).

Overall Thoughts

Conclusively, as you may have been able to guess, I highly recommend these shoes and love them like crazy. But like I said, only get them if they fit you, not because they are trendy and everyone is wearing them well.

Because as much as I like leopard print, I cannot wear it.

So get these if you can envision it fitting in your wardrobe, and of course, only if you have the money to spare.

But like Joe Sugg said, you should splurge on bedding and shoes, because you either spend your time in shoes or in your bed. 

Purchase here, if you want!
