Introducing the New “Chief” to our Range – The Numzaan Boot.

We’ve listened to our customers and are thrilled to bring you the Numzaan boot—crafted with the Jim Green touch for top quality, comfort, and formality on every occasion.

Derived from the Zulu word “Numzaan,” meaning the head of a family or a leader, we proudly present the Numzaan boot as the distinguished “Chief” in our collection. Inspired by our Baobab boot, it projects a heritage feel and features our new Veg Tan leather, making it our most stylish boot to date.

You may want to sit down for this one as on as there a lot specs to run through for this one. The Numzaan boot boasts a double lasted upper (2.2mm lined with 1.2mm calf skin) this is then finished off with a genuine toe cap, making this boot sport over 5mm of leather around the toes. The Heel and toe area is also reinforced with thermoplastic toe puffs for added support. This is paired with an ankle-high lace-up system and bellows tongue. The unique facing pattern allows for less lace pressure for those days when the boots need some added tightening.  Our ASHM last allows for a “fashion” look while still accommodating a wider foot. The good news doesn’t stop there, we’ve gone the extra mile and incorporated a leather lasting board, leather midsole and a resin runner (a total of over 8mm of leather) that will gradually mold to the shape of your feet. All of this comes together with the innovative Frog Grip sole, marking a new stride forward in the Jim Green range.

Discover the unparalleled elegance and comfort of the Numzaan boot—a true leader in our range!

  • The boot is designed with elegance and comfort in mind.
  • Manufactured with a double layer of leather (2.2mm full grain leather, lined with 1.6mm calf leather)
  • Double layer of leather aids in the boots water resistant properties (not waterproof)
  • A True leather toe cap and built in leather Kiltie adding the the look and durability.
  • The Toe, Heel and Eyelet area are manufactured with a double layer of 2.2mm full grain leather for added durability.
  • Heel and Toe stiffeners for added durability, support and protection
  • A steel shank between the insole board and sole offers extra support and stability
  • A leather lasting board, leather midsole and a resin runner for added comfort and durability.
  • The heavy-duty speed hooks and eyelets to help secure your feet.
  • The leather midsole is secured to the upper with a double stitched 2.2mm braided nylon cord.
  • As with all our boots, these can be resoled due to their double stitch down construction.
  • Last: ASHM – This is standard width (for those with wide feet or wearing thick socks we suggest going a half size up from your normal Jim Green size)
  • Sole: Frog Grip or JG Lug
  • Weight: 3.62 lbs (Size 9 US)
  • Laces: 59.05 inches
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.

5 reviews for Numzaan Boot – Walnut Veg Tan

    A true classic style with that Jim Green flair. Beautiful quality leather that I can’t wait to see patina. Flawless stitching. Extremely comfortable and grippy Frog Grip Sole. Day one break in is a breeze. Can’t wait for many years with these daily drivers.

    Well done Jim Green, these are a great pair of boots with phenomenal build quality and attention to detail. In my opinion at this price these really can’t be beat. A bit slimmer design than other Jim Green offerings with truly heritage build quality (I own Red Wing, Whites, Thursday, Blkbrd & other Jim Green products as point of reference) make for a great purchase. The Frog Grip sole is a great option for these boots and feels softer under foot than my other Jim Green boots w/ the lug soles. I don’t doubt I will be wearing these for years to come.

    I received my Numzaan with the frog grip sole a couple weeks ago. I wanted to wait and wear it a bit before writing a review. For context, I own a lot of boots, including some models that were stupidly expensive. Boots from UK, Italy, PNW, Germany, New England, etc.

    When I took these out of the box, I was shocked. The first thing I noticed was just how thick – but somehow still supple – the leather was. The stitchdown construction was absolutely flawless. The frog grip sole is thicker than it seems to appear in the website photos. The walnut leather is beautiful. They are heavy, but not in an uncomfortable way. Break in was quick and painless. And the frog sole is fantastic. I LOVE this boot, and will be one of the first in line when the green ones drop later this year.

    Been wearing my walnut Numzaans with the lug sole for almost a week now, and I am extremely pleased with them! Break in took a couple days of walking, but they’re super comfortable now and will only get better with time. They fit true to size, I’m a 9.5 / 10 US men’s on the Brannock, and ordered a size 10 upon the recommendation from Jim Green’s CS. There’s plenty of wiggle room in the toe box, but not too much to where they feel like clown shoes. Build quality is incredible, especially for a $250 pair of boots. After having tried on a pair of Iron Rangers before these, I’d take these over the Red Wings time and time again, especially considering they’re $100 less and feel much more rugged in their build quality.
    I have no doubt these will last decades, and swing way out of their league. Great pair of boots!

    So, I’ve got some Red Wings and White’s boots so I’m not new to breaking in boots. I went for these because they’ve got this spacious toe box, when they arrived, they were stiff as heck straight outta the box. But hey, that’s what you expect with well-made boots, right? Once I’ve put some miles on them, though, I reckon they’ll fit like they were custom-made for my feet.

    For anyone not in the know, good boots like these take a bit of time to break in—like, we’re talking a solid month for most folks. The leather starts to soften up, the insoles mold to your feet, and before you know it, they feel like a second skin. And man, don’t even get me started on the color—I’m psyched to see how they age and get that sweet patina going!
