Timberland White Ledge – Waterproof Hiking Boot

Timberland White Ledge - Boots for Hiking

 

This boot has a sleek, all-black, streamlined design. Its tongue and laces begin lower on the shoe than they do for most brands, and this allows for increased adaptability of fit. Even people with flat feet have been able to find a good fit for this product. It has an elegant and efficient D-ring and a speed-hook lacing system that holds the laces securely in place all day long.

All in all, this shoe is designed to withstand day-long stress, be it on the hiking trail or at work. It is made of abrasion-resistant grain leather, which not only keeps out water but also keeps your footwear from getting scratched.

Many customers have commented that the product doubles very well as a work boot, due to the secure lacing, the padding on the soles and uppers, and the enduring elegant design. Also, it weighs about the same amount as your standard dress shoe.

Standout features on this product include a BPSF motion efficiency rubber lug sole, which has lugs along the curved center of your foot’s pressure path. The sole is designed to flex along with your foot, supporting a very natural and very comfortable gait.

Another significant feature is the very thick, beefy, comfortable padding on the uppers and the inner sole, both of which are made of high-performance synthetic material. These may take some getting used to, as they contribute to peculiar weight distribution in the shoe as a whole, but they serve as excellent insulation from the elements.

Also, they make offer great comfort for those who need to be on their feet for long hours. This is what makes this product ideal for workers who walk or stand all day, and for backpackers toting a heavy load. However, this shoe may be less than ideal for those wishing to cover longer distances.

Compared to the Hi-Tec Men’s Flagstaff Waterproof Hiking Boot, Timberland’s footwear has less breaking-in time, taking only a few hours to break in rather than the week needed to fully break in the Flagstaff, which makes it the better shoe to buy when you need a comfortable fit but are short on time. It also has better padding, so it is better suited to backpacking and other activities where you may be carrying a load or staying on your feet for an extended period of time.

Compared to the Salomon’s Men’s Quest 4D GTX Backpacking Boots, this shoe is far less expensive in comparison to the Quest’s high price tag. It offers less ankle and toe protection. While the Quest 4Ds include extensions of the rubber sole that protect the ankle and toes, this product covers those areas with only leather.

Pros
  • Minimal breaking-in time
  • Durable; customers highly praise these products and report that they last years
  • True to size
Cons
  • Not 100% waterproof under extreme conditions
  • Outer sole loses texture more quickly, which may impact the degree of traction over an extended period of time
  • Leather at the sides of the lower foot has been reported to be rather thin

 

Some customers have reported that sharp rocks and sticks have in some cases penetrated this leather, and for that reason, it is highly recommended that you avoid areas with spiky objects whenever possible.

You have fewer waterproofing features, and the sole loses texture more quickly, meaning that Salomon’s footwear is probably the way to go if you expect to encounter lots of water. However, if you are just looking for something solid and comfortable at a reasonable price, go with the White Ledge.

In A Nutshell

This boot is durable, stylish, and highly comfortable even over extended periods of time. It has several features geared specifically toward making sure you can stay on your feet comfortably and shoulder weight while hiking as well.

White Ledges do not offer as many protection features as Salomon’s Men’s Quests and other brands, but they are just as supportive and just as versatile. Their conservative design and solid padding also make their very good work shoes, which means you use them in your everyday routine as well as on the trail. All in all, they have an excellent value for their price.
