Breathability

Breathability

One of the most praised qualities of the Timberland trendy design is precisely the combination of mesh and leather upper, that not only reduces the model’s weight, but it also helps the shoe to breathe well. Featuring 50% recycled PET mesh lining for climate control, this sleek model keeps your feet cool and dry throughout the entire time. The OrthoLite footbed, in addition, enhances all-day comfort and support, while providing a cool and healthy environment for your feet.
Comfort

Comfort

When it comes to comfort, we came across mixed reviews from customers. Many wearers agreed in the high levels of comfort, however, there were some negative comments about the initial stage of wear. According to some, the pair of Killington Oxford is not as comfortable for the first couple of weeks, until they are broken into. The leather seems to be slightly stiff, and it may cause irritation on the ankles for the first few days. After that challenging phase is over, your feet are surrounded in excellent cushioning and comfort. They might even become one of the most comfortable and professional shoes you have ever bought for work!

Some customers noticed that the collar rubbed on their ankles and caused them blisters. Others had no such problems. Many wearers who are on their feet for long hours recommend the Timberland Killington Oxford style to prevent backaches caused by standing for an extended period of time. This is due to the superior cushioning provided by the OrthoLite footbed, which also creates a healthy environment for your feet. The amount of cushioning in this model by Timberland has worked for some to relieve stress and pain from their lower back.
Fit

Fit

You can find the Timberland Killington Oxford design in both men and women sizes. Men can choose from a size range 7 to 13, while women have the option to get sizes 7 to 12 US both in medium width. Many customers agreed that this model by Timberland runs true to size. However, there were some that complained about the narrow fit of the design, despite its lightweight and comfort. According to reviewers, the model has a narrow toe area and also rubs against the heel. So, for all of you with wide feet, you may want to pay special attention when choosing a pair. It is recommended that you try a half size up for a better fit. For the rest, if you want to keep your foot locked in a snug fit, the Killington Oxford design features a lace-up closure with durable rope laces. This can help you customize the fit to your preferred tightness.
