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.

    I just got mine in the mail and it’s another winner from Jim Green. I already own the African Ranger, and the Vellies and I love both of those boots. I’ve had my eye on the razorback for a while and I couldn’t pass up the Black Friday price. They’re pretty comfortable right out of the box and I can’t wait wait to break these in. I like the look of the wedge sole. I ordered the same size as I have in African Ranger and these fit the same. I’m so glad I came across this brand via YouTube, as they are fast becoming my favorite brand.

    My favorite Jim Green boot. I dyed them black and have worn them for several months, everyday for work. I’m on my feet the majority of the day and they are comfortable and had a very short break in period. I love having in one boot, the sole of the African Ranger, with the ankle support of the Razorback. This combination lends great stability when traversing terrain and maintaining sure footage upon terra firma. The wide toe box allows toes to spread for comfort and added stability.

    I hope this boot stays around for a very long time.

    Highly underrated boot. I have always struggled with finding boots and footwear in general that works for my toes. The toe box on these is perfect for me as someone who wears a double wide.

  4. buzz (verified owner)

    I have wide toes, a tall instep and a narrow heel. I’ve never felt a boot with this much volume for my big feet. I wear a 27.5 mondo point and like a performance fit. My size 10 Razorback’s are the perfect length. Heel is a bit wider than I need, but I’d rather a little wiggle room on my daily wear. Fantastic boots. I don’t need more than 1 pair of boots, but if I did, Jim Green would get my money.

    Love these boots I work in a warehouse and are on my feet most of the day definitely will be a returning customer in the future only issue I had was my laces tore maybe it was my fault not to sure a couple dollar fix at my local store still a great boot

  6. Howard Jones (verified owner)

    Comfortable right out of the box. I have a wide foot, and these boots fit like a glove. The wedge sole option was a bonus for me, as I suffer from plantar fasciits, and the wedge sole allows my full weight to be spread evenly over my whole foot. The boot is large enough in the standard size for my orthotics as well. I love these boots.

    I got these Jim Greene Razorback a few days ago. So far I really like them…a LOT. These are the brown leather ones with the wedge sole. The D-ring eyelets will easily allow for adjustment to either heavy or light socks. At this point in serious competition for the most comfortable boots I have worn. I’m a retired farmer who is 76 and have slight neuropathy in my feet as a result of a bout with spinal stenosis, which was surgically corrected. The neuropathy is mild, but my feet can feel the imprint of the tread pattern of the soles after a few hours and it can feel like the socks have been glued to the bottoms of my feet. I have worn boots with vibram soles all my life, but that seems to be the worst offender these days for my feet. The wedge sole seems pretty well suited for my current situation and I doubt I’ll miss the vibram style too much, as these days I am not nearly as concerned with rough ground traction. I have to be on my feet for quite a spell to feel the tread pattern here, so I’m really happy with that. These do feel a bit wider in the toe box compared to my other boots, but the fit around the heel and mid foot are perfect, and the toes always feel fine.

    On another note related to the spinal stenosis is that very often when walking I will quickly get a hip lock feeling common to sciatica. With the Razorbacks, I have yet to have that happen. I’ve been having some difficulty since the surgery being able to walk enough to stay in any sort of decent shape, but these let me walk freely without that sciatica issue. I’m impressed.

    I really like the full leather lined, double lasted construction. I only have one very slight issue (really a non issue) in that I would gladly pay a few more dollars for a a leather replacement for the lasting board, but as they have been making this boot for 30 years using that fiberboard, I doubt that I’ll notice anything detrimental here. I’d also like to see an option to pay a bit extra on delivery to get the shipment done by UPS. The laces are pretty long as I wound up cutting off about a foot on each lace.

    The build quality looks top notch. The Danner boots I have are the less expensive glued sole, gore-tex types and the Razorback is built a lot better. I also wore these in to a couple of local stores and these JG are at least the equal of much more expensive boots like the leather lined Danner hiking boots which are twice the price of the JG.

    The break in time is pretty minimal. You can wear these pain free right out of the box, but they will become more worn in to fit your foot, but no serious break in time is needed.

    The only issue I have had is that they soaked through with water in about a half hour of wearing in a soggy wet pasture doing a quick emergency repair of a fence. This was on the third day I had them and I had not applied any conditioner. After getting back in the house I noticed they were damp inside. So I removed the laces and dried them out overnight. I was somewhat surprised at the amount of Obenauf’s leather oil they soaked in and how quickly they absorbed the two coats. I repeated the time in the wet pasture and they did not let any water back in. I actually ordered these in brown because that is the same color as the Obenauf oil creates, and if is the product I have come to trust over the years.

    I have always used two pair of boots so I can periodically rest one and I’ll buy another Jim Greene. It will likely be the Baobab. I hope to see a brown added with the wedge sole.

    I’ve worn them all… and these are the best work boots I’ve ever had. My brannock size is 12.5, but most manufacturers stop half sizes after 12 therefore I am always stuck with 13, so I am thrilled to have my true size for once. Also I have a wide forefoot, with low volume and narrow ankles and heel. Typically I have to buy EE width boots so my forefoot fits comfortably, but then I am swimming in the rest of it. This last is absolutely the best fitting boot last I have ever had. Also they don’t look like clown shoes on me (all my other boots do) because they fit so well so I can actually wear them with shorts and not feel like a goof. The leather liner is very nice for comfort and water resistance, however I do think it might make the boots run a bit hot on warmer days. I love the unique Jim Green look and accent colors. Usually I can’t wait to toss my work boots aside on the weekend, but I find myself wearing these every single day. Long live the Razorback.
