What size am I?

  • Stand vertically on a piece of paper and trace your feet. Then measure the maximum length in cm and determine your UK size
  • Please do not add anything to this. Yes, your foot needs some space because the foot moves in the shoe as it rolls. This has already been taken into account in the table when converting.
  • If you have wide feet, you don't need to add anything, as almost all Jim Green shoes are already wide. Wide width EE (almost all Jim Green models). Normal width D (e.g. Shoellie, Baobab, Numzaan) .
  • Please call us if you have any doubts. Shop with peace of mind as you can exchange your size at any time.

Sole options

JG Sole – This sole is our lug version and is designed for grip. It's made from real rubber and feels firm to provide stability underfoot. The JG Natural Rubber option is softer but still offers the same properties. Best suited for loose gravel surfaces, rocky terrain, uneven terrain and challenging landscapes.

OR Sole – This sole is designed for a combination of grip, comfort and speed. This is made of real rubber and offers a softer feel for more walking comfort. Best suited for sandy areas, longer days on feet, quick hikes, urban areas. A great, lightweight hiker.

BR Sole – Our all-rounder option, this sole is designed for durability in the city and outdoors. It is made of real natural rubber and has a firm grip to provide stability under the foot. Ideal for days between the office and outdoors.

FA Sole – Our lightweight comfort option, this sole is designed for comfort and a sleeker look. It is made of real rubber and has a softer feel for comfort. Best suited for casual days in the city or light walks or camping trips

KH Sole – This sole is designed not to absorb mud and dirt during your daily activities, hence its “Flay” design. It's made from real rubber and feels firm to provide stability underfoot. Best suited for muddy soils or sandy areas.

Shoe care process

Step 1) First remove the loose dirt with a
dry brush.

Step 2) Use an old toothbrush that is less abrasive to clean the hard-to-reach areas and seams

Step 3) Apply saddle soap in circular motions with a damp brush or sponge. Carefully rinse off the soap without soaking the shoe and wipe it with a dry cloth.

Step 4) Allow the shoe to dry in a ventilated place for at least two days. Not near a heater.

Step 5) After the boot is clean, it's time to care for the leather. Use beeswax to maintain the water-repellent properties of the leather and to create a silky shine (only after brushing). At first the leather will be dark, but after about 3 days, as the polish absorbs and dries, it will gradually lighten.

A natural leather balm nourishes the leather equally,
However, not as water-repellent as with beeswax. The advantage, however, is that the leather does not darken as much.

For our suede options repeat Steps 1
to 2 and then select one of the following two options:

Option 1) If you prefer a lighter look and want to preserve the rough texture of the suede, we recommend using a suede cleaner and/or waterproofing spray.

Option 2) If you prefer a darker look, use beeswax or a leather balm. First, the leather becomes very dark with beeswax and dark with leather balm. After a few days it will become a little lighter as the polish absorbs and dries.

Please note that with this option the leather is smoothed, but the water-repellent properties of the leather are increased.

Do steps 3 and 4 and 5.

The Boot that Puts Boots onto Rangers

50% of Rangers don’t have access to sufficient Boots and Gear
and over 40% are required to purchase their own Boots.

With the future of our wilderness areas in the hands of those with boots on the ground, Jim Green Footwear and The Game Rangers Association of Africa (GRAA) have come together to make sure this issue is addressed.

Inadequate gear for rangers leads to a low morale and effects rangers wellbeing. With Rangers being on the front line of our conservation areas, a quality pair of boots is essential for everyday tasks

We put out a survey to Rangers from Across Africa and from that pulled together various focus points as to what is needed in the ultimate all round Ranger Boot. From that we give to you the African Ranger – A Boot Designed By Rangers For Rangers

  • 3 main focus: comfort, durability and affordable price
  • 2.2 mm full grain leather for added durability
  • Double layer leather at heel and toe against increased abrasion
  • Heel and Toe stiffeners between leather layer for added stability
  • Soft leather collar and tongue for comfort and weight reduction
  • Steel shank between the insole board and sole offers extra support and stability
  • Single lasted stitch down construction, can be easily resoled 
  • Double stitched assembly with 2.2 mm braided nylon cord
  • OR sole: genuine rubber wedge sole for best grip, comfort and speed on sandy areas, longer days on foot, speed hikes and urban areas
  • Softer rubber compound (shore hardness 55-65) keeps the Ranger quiet when walking through the African bush
  • Heavy-duty hooks and eyelets to secure feet
  • Size relatively large. If you are wavering between two sizes, take the smaller one
  • STC Last = EE Width, wide toe box
  • Made in South Africa


       

      For every 10 pairs sold, Jim Green donate a pair to a Ranger
