Out of the box the first things you will notice are the rugged toe and heel areas. Timberland evidently realized these points take the most abuse. They engineered an abrasion resistant leather that feels and looks like a low grit sandpaper. I especially like this because I tend to slide on my knees and the toe usually digs into the ground, so this should help the toes of my boots last longer. The toes are also steel! Of course, I could never buy a pair of boots that weren't steel-toed. Unlike most steel toed boots however, these actually bend and flex, great for anything. Be it Woodsball™ or at the job site.

One of the other things you will notice is a mesh in areas on the sides, and top of the boot. These allow your feet to breathe, always a great thing. Interestingly, Timberland uses a technology known as core-tex, which protects your feet from wind and water, but preserves breathability. Of the various technologies Timberland utilizes in their Pro Series is Agion, which is a treatment that reduces odors and prevents bacterial and fungal growth. For those of us on their feet a lot, or using their boots for more than just Paintball, this is a good feature. Some other notable things is the sole. It's non marking, oil resistant and slip resistant.

Once you put on the boot the first thing you will notice is the amazing feel. I was impressed when I first put them on and stood up. They felt great. Timberland placed an impact reduction plate which is contoured that supports and stabalizes the foot and it also disperses pressure to reduce fatigue. Great for Woodsball™, who wants tired feet while playing? The insole has a nice arch that decreases stress on your feet if you're standing a lot, it contours the sole of my foot perfectly, increasing it's effectiveness.

I have not had the oppourtunity to play in these yet. I will give an update when I do get some games in with them. For the week I plan to wear them and break them in further. They should also go good with my Fusion gear I ordered. I'll be giving a review on them too.

The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety

I agree with you, Timberland boots are awesome. In fact they are the only boots I have worn for the past three years.

I have to say they are much more rugged and comfortable than Timberlands, and I agree, timberlands are pretty damn rugged and comfortable.

does timberland use core-tex, or gore-tex? because gore-tex is what you want
