The Boot that Puts Boots onto Rangers

50% of Rangers don’t have access to sufficient Boots and Gear and over 40% are required to purchase their own Boots.
With the future of our wilderness areas in the hands of those with boots on the ground Jim Green Footwear and The Game Rangers Association of Africa (GRAA) have come together to make sure this issue is addressed.
Inadequate gear for rangers leads to a low morale and effects rangers wellbeing. With Rangers being on the front line of our conservation areas a quality pair of boots is essential for everyday tasks
We put out a survey to Rangers from Across Africa and from that pulled together various focus points as to what is needed in the ultimate all round Ranger Boot. From that we give to you the African Ranger – A Boot Designed By Rangers For Rangers
Follow our journey through our social channels or contact us for further information.
  • The boot is designed with 3 main focus areas: Comfort and Durability while at an Affordable price
  • The wedge sole is designed to grip while the softer rubber compound keeps the Ranger quiet when walking through the African bush
  • Toe, Heel and Eyelet area manufactured with a double layer of 2.2mm full grain leather for added durability
  • Heel and Toe stiffeners for added durability, support and protection
  • Soft leather collar and tongue for comfort and weight reduction
  • A steel shank between the insole board and sole offers extra support and stability
  • Heavy duty hooks and eyelets to secure feet
  • Insole is secured to the upper with a double stitched 2.2mm braided nylon cord
  • Can be resoled – Stitch down construction
The best way to preserve your Jim Greens is through regular and correct polishing. Water, heat and wear remove the natural oil from the leather, so when the tiny fibres dry out they become hard, brittle and break easily, thereby shorten the life of the leather.
For our leather boots we recommend any natural shoe polish found at your local store. For our suede options we suggest light brushing to remove dirt and a scotchguard for longer protection.
After a long day in wet conditions and you requiring your boots early the next morning, the worst possible solution is to artificially dry your boots. Leather fibres burn easily – especially when wet and therefore should never be left near a heater, placed in your oven or left in direct sunlight. For the best results, footwear should be dried out slowly and never subjected to any extreme heat. Should you work in constantly wet conditions, it is best to alternate between two or more pairs of our Jim Green boots.
We realise that buying footwear online is a daunting task and we are often asked to recommend a size by new Jim Green customers. If you happen to purchase a pair of Jim Green boots online and they do not fit, we will happily exchange them for you. If the measurements fall in-between the lengths provided, we do offer half sizes on certain styles. We can recommend a size but we can’t guarantee the fit.

    The Rangers are so comfortable! They were delivered a few hours ago, I can already tell these will be my most versatile boot. The leather looks great, feels great and the soles are very soft and grippy.

  2. Jeff Lowe (verified owner)

    I’ve had mine for a few days now and honestly, I don’t want to take them off. They are extremely well designed and well made. Not only are they one of the most comfortable boots I have ever had, they’re also one of the most comfortable shoes in general. They also look great and have a unique visual design compared to others. So far I couldn’t be happier.

  3. Jason T. (verified owner)

    My Ranger boots arrived yesterday and after just a few hours’ wear are breaking in beautifully. I couldn’t be more pleased.

  4. Zach (verified owner)

    These boots have been phenomenal. I’m a navy vet with a lot of experience in boot. These are the only boots I feel like I could wear all day. They’re pretty lightweight and incredibly comfortable. The boot to value is exceptional and don’t see myself going anywhere else for boots.

  5. Jim (verified owner)

    Received my Rangers earlier this week and after wearing for the past few days, I can say that without a doubt, these are- THE MOST COMFORTABLE shoes I have ever worn. Well constructed, high quality, all leather footwear are an extreme rarity these days amongst the “sea” of synthetics, plastics and foam. My Rangers will last for many, many years; the way shoes are meant to be. Don’t take my word for it, buy a pair and you can find out for yourself.

  6. Dusty R. (verified owner)

    These shoes fit my feet better than any shoe to date. No break in time. I wouldn’t hike the PCT in them but for every other situation….perfect. Size 12 was spot on, feet are wide at the ball and normal at heel. The sole is stiff and is of a higher quality than the picture looks…..Really, I can’t believe how good they feel.

  7. Steve (verified owner)

    Change the insoles when you get them and you’ve got one of the most comfortable boots on the market today. I’ve worn (and own) boots from just about every major US boot brand and find myself reaching for my Rangers more often than not. You probably won’t win a fashion contest with them due to the wide toe box, but if comfort and functionality are more important to you, you won’t be disappointed. I personally love the wider toe box, it feels like a more natural fit and it’s great bunion relief too. They’re as good on concrete as they are in the woods, really such a versatile boot. They are VERY well made with quality materials, if I ever wear this pair out I will buy another without hesitation so long as they keep the quality standard.

  8. Joe (verified owner)

    This boot has a well constructed upper that will likely last a long time. The sole has a unique surface design that offers traction without picking up muddy soil. The biggest area in need of attention is the insole. It looks like 1 mm of leather on top of 1 mm of foam. There is very little cushioning and shock absorption. Also, there is little to no arch support.
