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.
