Tough as Africa – built to last

The Jim Green Razorback boot is inspired by Africa, designed to take on the daily outdoor and work challenges that come with the harsh terrain. Its double layer of leather upper combines with a pure rubber sole to give you superior stability, comfort and grip.
For over 25 years, the Jim Green Razorback has been the choice of South Africa’s’ safari lodges and outdoor enthusiast. Famous for its never say die attitude and respected for its durability. No other boot is more versatile, from mountain tops to factory floors, the Razorback is ready for any challenge.
Mile after mile, year after year, the Razorback, an old friend you can always count on to get you from here to there in rugged comfort.
  • 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)
  • Ankle padding for excellent support, comfort and protection
  • Thermoplastic toe puff and a heel stiffener for extra support
  • A steel shank between the insole board and sole offers extra support and stability
  • Insole board is secured to the upper with a double stitched 2.2mm braided nylon cord
  • Sole is made from a genuine rubber
  • Can be resoled
  • Due to the double layer of leather the Razorback can tackle all kinds of terrain, making it ideal for the outdoor worker or hiker requiring that extra bit of toughness

  • Sole: JG (This sole is our lug option and is designed for grip. It is a genuine rubber and of a firm feel to provide stability under foot)
  • Weight: 1.56 kg (Size 8)
  • Laces: 175 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.

    These boots are amazingly tough. It is difficult to find work boots without an artificial waterproof lining. These traditional leather work boots allow my feet to breath properly through the day without being trapped in the waterproof liners. Name the brand/technology they all amount to spending the day with feet in plastic bags.

    I wear these boots daily in my occupation as a golf course superintendent. I have not had a pair of boots last more than one season until I purchased the Jim Greens. Bought to replace Danner Mountain Trail boots $420. The Danner soles could not make the entire golf season and had to be sent back to Oregon for replacement at a cost greater than a pair of new Jim Greens. Job is primarily walking on turf grass!

    The Razorbacks have an admirable hand construction. The quality of the leather is remarkable. Lace hardware is finer grade metal that I was able to polish back to shining after they were tarnished from spreading ice melter this winter. Soles show only minimal signs of wear and I just retreated the leather to a supple condition. Ready for another year of service. Thank you for bringing such a choice value product.

    I was very impressed when I bought these, since they seemed very solid and well made, and they looked beautiful (the fudge crazy horse razorbacks). Time has proven that to be the case. However, trying them on initially, I thought I’d got the wrong size as they seemed tight and pinchy, and for some time I wasn’t sure if I should keep them. Eventually I decided they would soften up and I oiled them and started to wear them in. It took a while, I can tell you! These are tough boots! But now I love them. They’re no longer the same fudge crazy horse colour they were when new – instead, they’ve darkened a lot and are more of a traditional hiking boot “nut brown” kind of colour – close to the colour of the buffalo skin Ranger boot, actually. That’s mostly my doing from the stuff I’ve put on them to keep water off and so on, but be aware that they’ll darken up, perhaps a lot. They still look great though, and they’re getting a lovely patina with a bit of wear.
    They’re not especially waterproof (water will gradually soak into the exposed edges of the leather where the upper is stitched to the midsole) so I don’t recommend them for wet climates. That said, I’ve worn them in the UK during a cold snap with ice and snow on the ground and they did fine. They’re not insulated, and I had a second pair of socks on for that.
    They’re better for hotter, drier places, where the tongue keeps the dust and sand and seeds out of your boot, and the tough leather protects you from spiky plants and sharp stones but lets your feet breathe. Suits me well here in Southern Portugal. They’re great boots.

    Great quality but unfortunately had to return because they are just sooo wide. My The length was great but I couldn’t get the boot to feel at all snug on my foot. Would love a pair in a normal D width.
