It’s finally starting to feel like fall and I couldn’t be more pleased. Autumn is by far my favorite season, and while I enjoy the crisp air and falling leaves, the clothes and shoes are what I’m after! Specifically, the boots – ah, the boots! Though I’m a sucker for a fierce stiletto pump, boots come in at a close second. Just in time for the change in seasons, Timberland sent over a pair of their new Earthkeepers Rudston Boot, $220 to review.
I’ve never owned a pair of Timberland shoes, as I thought they wouldn’t have anything for a girly girl like me. However, the Timberland boots your guy might wear aren’t all the brand offers (I keep picturing Jay-Z in Timberland boots circa, well…all the time, LOL!) . Their new Earthkeepers Collection features stylish, fashion forward boots and shoes made in eco-friendly facilities from recycled materials. I received the Rudston boot in Golden Beige suede, which didn’t particularly suit me, but the boot also comes in a great dark brown leather that’ll go with everything, as well as a several other shades that are available on the Timberland website and Zappos.
I wore the Rudston out for a day of errands and found them to be very comfortable, especially for a heeled boot. I usually put gel insoles in my shoes to prevent soreness on the balls of my feet, but that wasn’t necessary with these. I did find them to be a little snug, which never happens with my super-narrow feet, so I recommend ordering up a size if you have wide feet, plan to wear thick socks or have muscular calves. Since they are leather, they’re likely to stretch, but if you’re generally prone to boots being too tight, I’d certainly consider sizing up. As for styling, these are best for a casual look, so tuck a pair of skinny jeans into them and toss on a comfy boyfriend sweater. Or play up the rugged/feminine factor with opaque tights and a cute floral fall dress, layered under a sweater or jacket. Perfect for a day of shopping or running errands!
If you’re looking for a pair of comfy, casual boots for fall, give the Timberland Earthkeepers Rudston boot a try.
