When looking to make a style statement, one cannot miss the iconic “yellow boot” to complement the outdoorsy look. The boot owes its popularity to its sturdiness, and versatility. Besides the workmen or hipsters who sport the look, these boots, over the years, have penetrated into the pop-cultural sphere to become a fashion classic.
Every successful brand endeavors not just to make profits but to connect with its consumers however possible. An internal research survey suggested that catering to different consumer markets help brands to get more people interested in their products. Keeping that in mind, Timberland expanded its product base from boots to clothing to accessories.
