Timberland Pro Men’s Pitboss 6'' Soft-Toe Boots: Detailed Review

To get a better idea about one of the best work boots on the market, take a look at the detailed review.


Starting off with comfort, it’s very essential to know that American made boots have always been known for delivering superior comfort compared to other manufacturers. From the moment, you unpack these boots and step into them you’ll greatly appreciate their feel.

The soft cotton drill vamp lining interior combined with a shock absorbing insole surround your feet with comfort and minimize any surge along the way.

The shoes are an especially nice choice for someone with knee problems as they are fitted with super-light fiberglass shank for supporting the body’s entire structure.

Timberland has fitted these shoes with its proprietary “Timberland Pro ® 24/7 Comfort Suspension” that keeps the boots in a unique balance every step of the way, cushioning each step. In fact, the boots are designed in such a manner that they can reuse part of the energy put in each step, greatly reducing fatigue.


If you’re looking for boots that will survive extreme work conditions and give their all to keep you insulated from the outside world, then these are the way to go. From steelworkers to electrical engineers, everyone can benefit from these shoes.

They will protect your feet, not only from mechanical injury but from electrical shocks as well as they are insulated as per ASTM standards. They provide underfoot protection against electrically energized circuits, live conductors or other apparatus.

Their wedge-style sole is resistant to all kinds of slips & abrasions, keeping you grounded in even the most unpredictable environment.

The feature at play here is “Timerland Pro ® Rubber” which has specifically been built by Timberland to maintain a line between the inside & outside. The rubber is a heat-resistant, abrasion-free compound, giving these boots a definite edge over outdated compounds used by other brands.

The only thing that these boots miss is a safety toe. Apart from that, these are golden.


The design is very stylish and the boots give one’s entire apparel a very aesthetic appeal. The logo is subtly imprinted by the side, while the interior is nothing less than impressive. The insole is designed in a manner that it molds to your foot’s shape, and adjusts to consistent working patterns. This makes the shoes great for holding your feet in one location.


These boots are made to last for years to come. The full-grained oil tanned leather uppers are attached to the sole with a good-year welt construction, which is the toughest any boot can be made. On top of this, the boot has a highly-rugged outsole with tough traction that will keep you on your feet at all times.

Timberland has used premium grade antimicrobial technology in these boots. There’s an open-cell polyurethane foot bed that keeps odor in check while a Cambrelle ® fabric lining neutralizes any bacteria. This way you can work long hours or in varying work environments without worrying about your feet!

Now, here’s the downside. While the shoes are made out of water-resistant material that can keep you up and running in a mild swamp, they are in no way water-proof to keep you dry at all times. However, waterproofing is extremely easy nowadays, and you can easily use any of the various sprays in the market to achieve dryness.

Best Suited For?

Timberland is a highly sought-after name in the world of work-boots. The durability & reliability of these boots speak for themselves, thus they are highly recommended for Police Officers, Oil & Gas Workers, Construction Workers and Electricians.

How Do They Compare?

Competition #1: Danner Men’s Crafter 6” NMT Work Boot

Timberland packs superior any microbial technology while making sure moisture doesn’t accumulate. These boots fail in this very genre.

Competition #2: CAT Diagnostics Steel-Toe Waterproof Boot

While the accompanying steel-toe & waterproof features are obvious, Timberland’s boots overtake them through consistent sizing patterns which have been a frequent problem with CAT diagnostics.

Competition #3: Timberland Earthkeepers Men’s Work Boot

It’s me against myself! The judgment is simple. The Timberland Men’s Boots are great for beginners, but if you’re looking to pack on something for heavy industrial use, the Earthkeepers are the way to go.
