Greenstride Motion 6: Step Into Sustainable Adventure with Timberland’s Eco-Friendly Mid Hikers

The Timberland Greenstride Motion 6 Waterproof Mid Hikers are an exceptional choice for both city dwellers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Priced at $150 for women’s and $160 for men’s, these hiking shoes offer a fantastic blend of style, performance, and eco-conscious construction.


When it comes to looks, the Greenstride Motion 6 Hiking Boots undoubtedly deliver. Both the men’s and women’s versions have their unique charm and stand out in their own way.

The men’s version boasts a sophisticated colorway, predominantly brown with black accents. The subtle addition of muted red and blue adds a touch of character, while the small geographic designs on the sides give it a unique flair. Even the pull tab on the back adds a little extra style without going overboard, making it a perfect balance of functionality and fashion.

On the other hand, the women’s version truly catches the eye. The primarily black boots are accented with white, olive, and blue elements, creating a striking contrast. The addition of red laces and a red pull tab, tie the look together and giving it a pop of energy. The real show-stopper, however, is an outsole that provides an almost black and white camouflage feel, adding an edgy touch to the overall design.

Overall, the Timberland Greenstride Motion 6 Hiking Boots are not just great performers in the outdoors, but also fashion-forward choices for those who love to make a statement.


I noticed that while these boots feel relatively heavy in the hand, which isn’t uncommon for hiking shoes, they surprisingly feel lighter when worn on the feet. I expected to feel weighted down, but I was pleasantly surprised with their maneuverability.

The level of cushioning is just right, providing enough support without being excessively plush. I’ve had issues with overly cushioned hiking shoes causing blisters in the past, so I appreciate the moderate amount of trail feel these boots offer. It strikes a nice middle ground, giving me the confidence to tackle various terrains without feeling too weighed down or lacking in comfort.


The upper construction of the Greenstride Motion 6 impresses with its thoughtful design and impeccable fit. It is not often that you can slide a pair of hiking boots on, right out of the box, and feel like you could hit the trails immediately. This is one of those times. There is a nice amount of cushion around the heel and ankles, but nothing too intense. The tongue is also padded, but has a lower profile than some others out there.

The TimberDry waterproof protection ensures your feet remain dry even in wet conditions, allowing you to explore freely and confidently regardless of the weather. We do live in the Pacific Northwest after all.

While it may be dry hiking right now, nine months out of the year, you are going to need some sort of protection from the elements. The materials used in the upper are of high quality, making the shoes feel extremely durable and reliable for long-term use.


The midsole of the is where this hiking shoe truly shines. Its lightweight design delivers exceptional comfort, making long hikes and walks a breeze. The Greenstride comfort soles offer remarkable rebound, providing a cushioned and responsive feel with each step.

The use of at least 65% biobased materials derived from sugarcane and responsibly grown natural rubber in the midsole construction further underscores Timberland’s commitment to sustainability. This eco-friendly approach not only benefits the environment but also ensures a comfortable and supportive fit for your feet.


The outsole is clearly designed to handle various terrains with ease. The triangular lug pattern provides superior traction in all directions, ensuring stability and grip both when moving forward and laterally.

What sets this outsole apart is its eco-conscious composition, with 55% of the rubber sourced from farms committed to regenerative agriculture. Super cool! It should also be able to handle everything but the most technical of hiking trails. And even burn, you could still use this no problem.


In conclusion, the Timberland Greenstride Motion 6 Waterproof Mid Hikers are an excellent investment for anyone seeking comfort, performance, and eco-friendliness in their hiking shoes. I literally can’t wait to plan a full year of hikes in these.

The upper construction offers reliable waterproof protection, while the midsole’s lightweight comfort and rebound capabilities enhance the overall experience. Moreover, the outsole’s exceptional traction and eco-friendly materials reflect Timberland’s dedication to preserving the environment.


Whether you’re exploring the city or venturing into the great outdoors, the Greenstride Motion 6 ensures you can do so in style, comfort, and with a positive impact on the planet.

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
