Earthkeepers® GT Scramble Boot Review

Earthkeepers® GT Scramble – Mid Leather Waterproof Brown/Orange (Style #2201R)

For our hike I was blessed with the Timberland GT Scramble. As far as looks go, "pre-distressed" usually isn't my preference, but in this case it workeds, one, because we got them dirty right away and two, because box-fresh hikers are a bit of an odd look anyways. On my pair, the orange laces also made for a nice contrast against the brown leather upper. Performance-wise the mid height boots were very comfortable with a padded tongue and collar and a cushioned EVA midsole. The Smartwool lining/footbed was soft and warm, while the waterproof leather upper kept me dry when splashing in puddles. The lugged outsole and toe bumper also gripped well in all-conditions, allowing me to easily stay moving over any obstacles I encountered. I would recommend these boots to anyone looking for a clean, casual hiking shoe.

The Walk With Me experience gave me a look at a side of Toronto I had never seen before. The former brick factory that houses the Timberland Canada offices was a stunning in both it looks and it's outlook on heritage, sustainability and preservation. The Don Valley setting for the actual walk was gorgeous as well, but overall the best part was getting to spend an early autumn afternoon getting some fresh air with a group of like-minded individuals.
