Casually Formal

Is it a Shoe? Is it a Vellie? No! It’s the SHOELLIE
We were after an option that can be worn with shorts for those casual Fridays and come the weekend worn with some chinos for your best friend’s wedding. We blended the standard upper of a chukka boot in with the low cut of a formal shoe and found the perfect balance between casual and smart. Our wide fitting lasts weren’t going to make the cut for that wedding you going to attend, so we added in our new standard width last to give you that touch of fashion you after. This is all topped off with our Oringo wedge sole which has quickly become a much sought after option.
Finally a footwear option where formal meets casual meets durability.
  • 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
  • Thermoplastic toe puff and a heel stiffener for extra support
  • Midsole 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: 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: OR (This sole is designed for a combination of grip, comfort and speed. It is a genuine rubber and of a softer feel to provide comfort under foot)
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.

    Absolutely amazing comfort and such a solid build. Looks great with khakis, jeans, or shorts. Second pair of Jim Greens (Razorback two years ago still going strong), and these reinforce the comfort, quality, and durability that I’ve come to associate with Jim Greens. Customer for life.

    Overall build seems good upon initial inspection. You’ll be quite surprised by a gigantic logo on the heel which completely undercuts the point of a subtle shoe. I am debating returning them especially since they disguised this fact in the pictures.

    Finally, a pair of stitched construction resolable shoes that I can wear with shorts! These feel really well made for the price and are comfortable right out of the box. I really hope they bring this narrower last to more of their products because it looks so much nicer and fits me very well. I also saw that they offer a suede (or roughout?) version of the Shoellie on their website and am hoping they bring that to the US. A premium version with a leather lasting board would also be nice to see.

    Jim Green’s Shoelies blew away my expectations. I have the buffalo skin African Rangers, and the chestnut Vellies also.
    Nice thick leather with a very comfortable fit. Incredibly comfortable right out of the box. I gave them some boot oil, which darkened them a little, and away I went. The fudge leather looks and smells wonderful.
    I usually wear a 10.5 brannock size and got these in an 11 because I have wide feet. A perfectly snug fit, but not tight. Vellies and African Rangers I wear a 10.5 for comparison.
    Jim Green you did it again. A+

    These are very good shoes. They are good looking, yet have a supportive, durable feel to them. Love the outdoor spirit of the shoes. You can fix a fence with them. And you can wear them to the office for a day of computer work and go out to a nice restaurant afterwards.

    A few days in and so far so good. Fudge is a great color, pictures were accurate, sole seems tough enough to get a few years out of them. I love rustic and rough cut boots, and these are great mix of rugged but fancy enough for the office or a dressed-up date.

    Downsides? The included insoles are pretty thick, and I got significant heal lift with them in place. I used a thinner pair with better success.

    Sizing: I normally wear a 12.5 or 13, and while I’ve sized down in other similar shoes like Red Wing Weekenders, I wanted to see what would happen if I didn’t. Low and behold, they are a little big, so I should’ve gone for the 12s without insoles. That would’ve firmly planted my heal in the cup, reducing lift, however, I’d still not run these with thick insoles as they are just too short.

    Formal meets casual meets rugged.

    The best casual dress shoe I’ve ever owned. I’ve never been one to wear dressy looking shoes, but the Shoellies are an exception for me and are a perfect blend of a dress shoe and a boot. I’ve found myself grabbing these shoes nearly every-time I leave the house because they are so versatile, comfortable and look good with any outfit. The fudge color is beautiful and pictures do not do it justice, it’s also started to develop a nice patina with a month of hard wear and are holding up great – they feel very well made and I expect them to last a while. I am a construction estimator and have walked job sites in these things and even done some work in them! The leather is nice and thick, the soles are great for all surfaces and it fits very nicely with plenty of arch support. I got my usual size 12 in boots and my feet are a bit wide, but have no issues with width not even the toe box. I also got the black pair for more dressy occasions and they’re beautiful too.

    Another review gave less stars for the Jim Green logo being on the back of the shoe, but I think it’s a really nice touch and gives the shoe character.

    I wrote this review because I want Jim Green to continue making these shoes, and I will keep purchasing them as well as being your biggest advocate. Also looking to try other styles of theres after being so impressed – especially for the price point. Never change Jim Green!
