Abington work chukka

An unlikely candidate for high quality, well-crafted shoes; Timberland pulls through with The Abington Collection. The Abington Shoe Company was a company that Timberland acquired mid-century; thus a befitting title for their heritage line. I recently purchased a pair of their work chukka from Revolve's latest sale (now sold out), and I have to say that I was quite surprised at the craftsmanship and detailing on this piece. For $80 shipped, this was quite a deal and a much better shoe than one would get for double the price or more from a brand like Red Wing.

The Abington work chukka is comprised of:
Chromexcel leather from Horween Leather Co. and cotton duck uppers
Brass eyelets and shoelace tips
Purple EVA footbed
Vibram outsole

At first I was a bit put off by the reverse suede where the heel loop is, but I've found that I can kick off my shoes using my heels and not worry about scuffing the back of them.



awesome! do these run tts? or did you size down a half size like with red wing

Nicolas Lazaro

They run TTS. Much better quality leather than Red Wing as well.
