Timberland Pro® unveils the new Rip Saw™ work boot showcasing innovation within the industrial footwear market
Technology, comfort and durability for outdoor job environments
Timberland PRO® expands its industrial work boot line this season, with the launch of a new style created with outdoor professionals in mind. The Timberland PRO® Rip Saw provides state-of-the-art technology and out-of-the-box comfort to workers in the most demanding conditions. Key attributes include the brand’s exclusive Anti-Fatigue™ Technology, which absorbs shock and returns energy back to the foot, as well as abrasion-resistant Ever-Guard™ leather with a waterproof membrane to keep feet dry. The exclusive Independent Suspension Network™ (ISN) from Timberland features heel and forefoot pods with 'living hinges" inside the boot, which react and adapt to uneven surfaces, offering comfort, traction and stability. Timberland PRO also partnered with Vibram to create a unique "logger sole" for the Timberland PRO® Rip Saw, combining Timberland PRO® Ladder Lock™ technology with a traditional "logger heel" and wide angled treads to help release and expel dirt/debris while working.
“Our team worked vigorously over several years to develop the Timberland PRO® Rip Saw, taking into account consumer needs within the outdoor work space, and also, incorporating best-in-class technology and design aesthetics featured in our premium TiTAN® and Helix® lines,” said Xavier Kawula, Senior Product Manager for Timberland PRO. “The end result is a rugged, durable work boot that supports workers in the most demanding conditions, allowing each to safely stay on their feet, despite the work conditions or rough terrain at-hand.”
