Timberland produces men's and women's clothing and shoes but is perhaps most widely known for its boots. While standard boots can be purchased online and through retailers, you can design and order a custom pair of boots through the company's website. You can start from scratch to design your own Timberlands or use an established line as a base.

Step 1

Navigate to Timberland's "Design Your Own Boots" Web page (see Resources).

Step 2

Hover your cursor over the variety of styles of men's and women's boots on the page. This will allow you to see three options: start from scratch, start with the original or start with an inspiration. Click on one of the options.

Step 3

Select your size from the drop-down menu under the words "Choose Your Size" in the "Monogram It" box.

Step 4

Select a color from the drop-down menu that opens under "Embroidery."

Step 5

Click the dot next to whether you want your initials on the tongue or heel of the boot. Select the letters from the drop-down menu that opens under "Initials." Choose your desired font from the "Type Style" drop-down menu. You can also add your initials and choose the type style on the hangtag.

Step 6

Select a color for the entire boot from the drop-down menu that opens in the "Color It" box.

Step 7

Select values for the collar, stitching, mid-sole and out-sole sections from the drop-down menu that opens under each category in the "Detail It" box.

Step 8

Select colors and materials for the laces and hardware sections from the drop-down menu that opens under each category in the "Finish It" box.

Step 9

Click "Add to Cart" to order the customized boots. If that is the only item you want to purchase, you can click on the "Cart" tab at the top of the page and proceed with your checkout.
