Recently, Timberland has launched the Timberloop Trekker City Hiker – Timberland’s sustainable initiative to mark Earth Day – the first full circular footwear, and the extension of its product take-back program.
The Timberloop Trekker City Hiker was designed for circularity and its outsole can be simply removed and disassembled for recycling at the Timberloop take-back facility.
The Timberloop Trekker City shoe also has a detachable inner bootie made of 100% recycled plastic fabric made of 100% recycled plastic ReBotl fabric, which is integrated into the shoe through the lacing system for easy removal and recycling.
Chris McGrath, Vice President of Global Footwear Design for Timberland said, “We always have and always will create high quality, durable products that stand the test of time. Beyond that lens, we’ve added a focus on eco-innovation that’s a natural progression in how we approach product design.”
“Timberland has been using recycled materials in footwear for years, but the design of the new Timberloop Trekker puts us on the path to true circularity, where nothing goes to waste,” McGrath added.
