Nathan Swartz started it all back in 1952 with the Abington Shoe Company. In 1973, his son Sidney created a waterproof boot called the Timberland, successfully introducing the name that the entire brand is known by. In the 1980s, Timberland started its first step towards international expansion; now it boasts a presence in more than 82 countries. Today, as a wholly owned subsidiary of VF Corporation, Timberland is a global lifestyle brand, leader in the design, engineering and marketing of premium-quality footwear, apparel and accessories.
