Jim Greens durability meets a new sleek sole design and the beauty of fudge leather

For over 25 years Jim Green has manufactured high quality leather work boots, with our Rambler vellie we have drifted off our traditional path and now offer a casual, dam good looking, everyday option. Made with our traditional construction methods and materials, the Rambler vellie is flexible, lightweight and exceptionally wearable.
“ Due to the nature of the oils in the material, each boot is unique and will have a rugged finish to the upper. With time and wear it will come into its own”
  • Manufactured with a single layer of 2.2mm full grain leather
  • A steel shank between the insole board and sole offers extra support and stability
  • The traditional Vellie – South Africa’s most loved shoe
  • Thermoplastic toe puff and a heel stiffener for extra support
  • Insole board is secured to the upper with a double stitched 2.2mm braided nylon cord
  • Sole is made from a genuine soft rubber compound offering extra comfort
  • This boot can be re soled
  • Last: STC (This is a wide fit and offers a roomy and rounded toe box)
  • Sole: FA (This sole is our light weight comfort option and is designed for comfort and a sleeker look)
  • Weight: 1 kg (Size 7)
  • Laces: 90 cm
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 Rambler Vellie – Fudge

  1. SW (verified owner)

    Very comfortable out of the box. Very different feel than my razorbacks. The complaints about the insoles, while valid, can be alleviated by wearing thicker socks. I’m continually impressed by the value in this brand.

  2. Jason T. (verified owner)

    These are substantial velskoene, and it took me a day or two of wear to break them in. Now that they’re molded to my feet, though, they are my go-to shoe for everyday wear. I’m so impressed with these shoes that I’ve ordered a second pair, and I plan to pick up a pair of Razorbacks for a trip to Iceland next year.

  3. Justin Arnold (verified owner)

    I’ve worn them everyday since I got them. They very comfortable and and feel very durable. I love the leather too. Looks excellent. They’re now my go to boot for everyday wear.

  4. Bob (verified owner)

    I love these shoes. Day by day they get better and better. They do take some breaking in, but it goes pretty quick, and you can feel the fit improve as the day goes on. Light weight, super roomy for wide feet like mine. Super funky. Trying to decide on Rangers or Razorback for the next pair.

  5. Rob (verified owner)

    Simplicity done perfectly. These boots are more comfortable and more robust than the desert boots I’ve had in the past. The three eyelet lacing is spaced to hold the foot in place and reduce the amount of debris getting in. The leather is thick but very supple, the soles are an excellent match of flexible and silent but solid.

    If you are scrambling over rocks with a 30 pound pack, you might consider the Razorbacks. For daily wear, walks, day hikes, etc. this boot is everything I need and nothing I don’t. Breathable, water resistant, quick drying, puncture resistant, lightweight, these boots can be repaired by any cobbler any where in the world but aren’t likely to need any repair for several years.

    If you are comparing these to a well-known British brand made in Asia, these have a wider toe and laces that actually work. If you wouldn’t buy Cowboy boots made in China, why would you buy Vellies made in Vietnam? Making every part of the shoe in the country where it was developed makes sense to me. Making them exceptionally well in South Africa, Jim Green has another winner here.
