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.

    Just got my pair this week. They look great. Good thickness of leather. Needs a little breaking in but not much. More shaping to my foot than getting the leather softer.
    These will definitely look great with some casual pants. I am new to this type of sole but so far it is comfortable to walk on.
    If you like Jim Green shoes and boots, you will like these. They are not fancy with lots of bells and whistles. They are nice shoes that look to be built to last. I am very happy so far.

    As usual, Jim Green creates another winner! These are good looking, comfortable and will likely be very durable, as all of my other Jim Greens that I love so much.

    If you are looking for footwear with room, these are perfect! These will surely be in the top of my rotation …

    Extremely pleased with this purchase. I wanted a quality leather chukka-style boot that I could wear to the office or work around the house in. I also needed a big toe box because I have wide feet. Jim Green fit the bill.

    The leather was soft and supple. The quality of stitching was also so much better than those Asian-made chukkas.

    These shoes also have a lot of support. After wearing them for a few days, I realized that I wasn’t as tired at the end of the day.

    Do yourself a favor — throw your old Chukkas out and buy some Shoellies.

    First pair of Jim Green footwear for me. Thank you Rose Anvil (you tube) for making me aware of this company. Size is about 1/4 larger than my normal size. But does not impact how good they feel. I’ve had these shoes for about 6 months and have worn them daily for work and pleasure. People that have not worn a pair of Jim Green’s may not believe me when I say I’d rather wear these shoes than my stand bye new balance shoes. Those who have worn Jim Green shoes will know though. I will absolutely be wearing and ordering more Jim Green shoes and boots. Thanks to all the people who work at Jim Green. They obviously take pride in work they do and the products they make.

    Just literally received this on my front porch and was exited to receive it. I wanted to see what all the hype was. It’s no hype. It’s the real deal. Just an honestly great product. From upper to sole. Leather is thick but takes no time at all to break in. Rubber is real w/o any plasticy feel. Some people are concerned about the big logo on the back but honestly does not bother me. This was not intended to be a super formal shoe anyway. Last is nice, almondy but still wide and comfortable. Great job. I’m sold. Just 9 more and a ranger will get another free pair. Please support this company.

    Good shoe, please keep making these permanently. I can see myself buying other colors if they become available. Takes a bit to break in.

  7. Jon Ashworth (verified owner)

    Where do I even start? Construction is fantastic. Thick leather with double stitching everywhere, yet they don’t look bulky. Super comfortable due to wide toe box and excellent insole material. The outsole is tough and has a great tread.

    They look great with shorts or long pants, are versatile and can be work in a number of ways. After hiking a mountain and getting them soaked with rain, and having the toes get stepped on by cowboy boots at bars numerous times, and just wearing them daily over the summer they’ve held up extremely well and look great after some wear and tear.

    They are on the heavier side due to the bomb-proof construction but unless you’re running a marathon in them then you’ll be fine. I will be wearing these for years to come.

    I preordered these and got them in May. It’s been my go to shoe for everything. A little on the heavy side but you get great support and cushion. I wear these everyday from work to camping and even hike in them. Just ordered a new sole. Hopefully they make them in different colors one day, would love to have another pair but in black.
