About this deal

These will be a keeper, like my African Rangers 5″ which are great for pounding the pavement on my daily walks. With a good coat of SnoSeal or similar beeswax based sealant on the leather and all seams these are highly water resistant, good for tromping through mud, puddles and streams but not wading. 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. Given the durability and quality of the Jim Green upper, most people find they wear the sole away numerous times before the upper eventually gives way.

The shoes look great in person and I paid 147 euro’s in total for the shoes, some extra insoles, transport and VAT. Build quality is top notch, I would say these are perfect for trekking days on end whether it be paths, rocky trails, or in mud, these handle all those conditions.Fit pretty true to size, though I’m finding the Vellies and African Ranger boots fit differently from the Razorbacks.

With hundreds of miles on asphalt, concrete, dirt and rocks I expect I’ll get another five years before these need resoling. EXCEPT: The lug sole captures a lot of gravel and carries it into my RV where my bare feet then finds all of it. Granted, that’s after nine months of solid work (including a freak blizzard and two castration sessions). I have quite a wide forefoot and a high arch (higher volume foot) and I found the boot comfortable without significant lace pressure.South African footwear manufacturer, Jim Green, makers of the rugged, no-nonsense Razorbacks, have a second hiking boot in their line-up: The Monster Waterproof Boot. I’d been looking for a pair of reliable work boots/hikers/shit kickers and seen Jim Green’s presence in this group so I figured I’d give them a shot. They are very high quality leather, full grain I believe, and are good for applications in uneven terrain. From what I understand, the company is looking at potentially upgrading their insole to leather, but what’s used now works just fine and if needed down the road I can just use an insert.
