Timberland PRO Men’s Helix Chelsea ESD Work Boot

Mobility, sense of style and uncompromising comfort – all three features are present in the Timberland PRO Men’s Helix Chelsea ESD Work Boot. And just because these are composite toe boots doesn’t mean they won’t protect your feet. On the contrary, the Timberland Pro Helix boots are made from full-grain leather of the finest quality, meaning they were engineered to withstand heavy abrasions while protecting every inch of your feet from anything in their path.

In the looks department, these slip on work boots are both funky and functional, easily allowing you to transition from the jobsite to an after-work dinner date. The lack of laces makes it even easier sliding into them through the twin gore stretchy openings. As for safety, feel free to take these boots anywhere. The TITAN shaped composite toe box offers a roomy fit without adding any additional weight. Moreover, even under heavy duress the toe box will not contort or deform. Add to this additional worksite hazard resistance such as electrical, heat and water and you get a decked out pair of slip on work boots for men that work in just about any environment.

Some of the interesting features that make these Timberland slip on boots for men special are:

  • Twin Gore slip-on entry system with reinforced pull loops.
  • Anti-fatigue technology helps reduce shock and returns energy.
  • Full grain premium quality leather averse to extreme abrasion with cement construction for reduced break-in time.
  • TITAN composite toe box, molded polyurethane midsoles for cushioned and protective comfort.
  • Rubber outsoles with Ladder Lock radius and abrasion, heat, oil and slip resistance.

The Pros

First and foremost, Timberland PRO Men’s Helix Chelsea ESD Work Boots use conical midsole geometry that helps absorb shocks and maintains a steady tread pattern regardless of the wearer’s pronation. Add to this the polyurethane breathable midsoles and the mesh lining, you get an overtly comfortable quick break-in work boot that can handle the heat, work hazards and night life with equal prowess. Did I mention the Helix Chelsea resists microbial buildup thanks to an Agion anti-microbial mesh lining? Basically, comfort and health are its forte.

Oh! Don’t forget the looks. Words simply cannot describe how cool these boots are. Since they don’t run larger than an average shoe, expect a tight looking fit around your feet that looks every bit classy as it feels.

The Cons

My only complaint with the Timberland PRO Men’s Helix Slip On boots is that it uses a composite toe box. While effective against most worksite hazards, for those who work around heavy overhead tools or objects these boots might not be the safest bet. This is more of a personal preference rather than anything against the Helix Chelsea boots. In short, I find nothing really to comment against the Chelsea Timberland Slip ons!


Style, comfort, looks, protection, price ($100-120 on average): the Timberland PRO Men’s Helix ESD work boots are our top choice for best slip on boots for men. Nothing comes close to this particular Timberland creation especially in the looks department.
