A celebration of 30 years of Boot Making
We wanted to create something unique, something with added comfort and something for everyone, while still keeping our Jim Green touch.
The Baobab Boot is inspired by the functional appeal of our two best sellers, the Razorback and African Ranger.
The durable single piece vamp from our Razorback combines with the lace up system of our African Ranger, to give you a combination like no other, that will hold up on any adventure and withstand daily wear.
We combine this with a more narrow last, although don’t let the look fool you, as this fit still caters for those with a wider foot.
The good news doesn’t end there, we have added in a leather lasting board that will gradually take to the shape of your feet and add that extra comfort and durability as time goes on.
This combines with a Mini Lug and moulded EVA sole combination, taking the comfort of this boot to another level while still offering the ruggedness of a rubber sole.
Just like the ancient Baobab Trees of Africa, that have stood for thousands of years, we see this boot cementing its roots onto our range and becoming another legend of the range.

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.
