I sent the pics to Timberland in an email along with my Amazon purchase information, but Support would not send a replacement pair without making me jump through hoops to return the ones I bought. (Even though Timberland is aware of this design/material flaw, had photos, and had the Amazon purchase info [screenshots of the entire purchase].)
By producing a shoe they had to know would fail within a year and not making adequate effort to address customer problems with it, Timberland has lost my family's business for years to come, and I'll recommend others avoid their products.
In contrast, I have other brands that have lasted me 20 years, e.g., a pair of Clarks from the 90's that I still wear. These Timberlands lasted less than a year with only intermittent use.
By virtue of the design, the large toe box with stitched openings and a wide stance design, comfort seemed assured. But Timberland has also provided a remarkably generous leather cushioned insole that feels almost like the interior of a bedroom slipper. Indeed I sometimes slip these on in lieu of a slipper. The outtersole is of athletic shoe design and provides abundant cushioning. A feature that adds to the shoes cushiony feel is the inclusion of three rounded soft rubber tubes running almost the length of the sole which does much I think to make each foot placement virtually shock free.
I wore these for three weeks in the South of France and Northern Italy doing much walking and never once looked forward to taking them off at the end of the day. Most comfortable shoes I ever owned? At 71 I can't remember all of them, but let's just say they are the most comfortable shoes in recent memory!
It's feel like fit exactly and comfortable with those two different brand shoes. So, I'm assume this Timberland Sandal is slightly 1/2 sizes larger than Rockport Oxford.
Anyways, it's really very comfortable and only complain maybe it's slightly heavy than other usual sandal like Columbia... However, Timberland Fisherman sandal is made of leather and feel more elegant looking!!!
I really like the leather adjustment strap on the side with a Velcro fastener. I can pull it all the way tight for some serious walking, then loosen it later when I am mostly sitting. Also great for adjusting to the thickness of socks, or no socks at all. The padding on the foot bed is great too, making it an extremely comfortable shoe. These had that instantly broken in feel as soon as I took them out of the box and put them on, which is rare. I have very wide feet and wear up to 4E on say New Balance shoes, but these 2E are perfect width. They are slightly long, but with the strap tightened they don't slip around. I like the slight space in front of my toes for air circulation and gives some comfort when riding a bike with toe clips, so the toes aren't jammed up.
I liked these so well that after a week I ordered a 2nd pair to keep in reserve, because you never know when a company will stop making a great design, or feel they have to update it and ruin a good thing. I've been wearing these all day at work, and sometimes put them right back on when I go out in the evening. When I had to take a flight that was going to include a lot of walking at the airports, I had no hesitation that these would be the shoes to wear. This is my first pair of Timberland shoes, but won't be my last! I'm even thinking of getting another pair in a diff color. Sure there are cooler and lighter sandals, but for something rugged enough for city or country walking, some light sports, and dressy enough to wear for most summer occasions, these would be hard to beat.
**Update - got these early last June and wore them daily through the summer into late fall. Wore them to work and evenings/weekends, really the only shoe I wanted to wear all summer! Put 20-30 miles a week riding bike with them too. Construction and stitching held up fine, soles barely worn. Just oiled them getting ready for spring and they look nicely broken in, in great condition.
***Update - starting on third summer with this pair. Wore all last summer riding bicycle - the stitching and sole are still in great condition. The leather is looking a bit worn from using toe clips, but not damaged at all. I got a second pair as the original pair is looking a bit too funky to wear to the office, but otherwise is in good condition.
