I've had these on my wish list for a number of years and I finally pulled the trigger. I'm so glad I did! They are comfortable and well made. They took about 10 days of wear to break in (felt a little tight in the toe at first), but are now a dream!!! I'm looking forward to putting many miles into these bad boys!
They feel great right out of the box and run true to size. great craftsmanship and quality leather.
Kern Boots are the best Boots I’ve ever had. Enough said!! Just received my second pair.
Was a little apprehensive buying a boot that cost over 200$ but was so happy i did once i opened that box. The beautiful smell of the leather hits you followed by the eye popping boot itself. Gave them a good look over but could not find any faults. Ordered a half size up from my usual and they fit like a glove. looking forward to many years of wearing this boot.
Stylish, comfortable, and built to last. These boots continue to impress. I own 3 pairs and they have turned into the only shoes I wear. I’ve re-soled a pair and they feel like brand new. Honestly, don’t know that I’ll ever wear anything else. If you’re thinking about buying a pair, do yourself a favor and pull the trigger. You won’t regret it.
I bought these for my husband. He loves them. Says they are so comfortable and stylish. Every time he puts them on he makes a comment about how good they feel.
Bought 2nd pair 2 days after first.. red wing person here.. but will be looking to Wilcox more..
I purchased two pairs of Wilcox Kern boots. I’m on my feet almost all day and these are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn. I wear them everyday. I even wear them when I walk to and from work (2 mile round trip). I highly recommend these boots to anyone who respects comfort, quality, durability, and dependability.
The boots give me excellent support and are very comfortable right out of the box. This is my third pair - and they are all great boots!
I have wore a lot of boots! These provide excellent comfort. Wilcox found the perfect balance between casual dress and comfort. I even bought a second pair.
Extremely happy with this pair of boots , I am on my feet over 12 hours a day on concrete.
True to size. Look great, fit great. I live in Alaska, so it’s nice to have footwear that ain’t just snow boots but can handle the elements. I wear wool socks, and I dress the boots down with fleece sweats and a hoody, or I dress them up with nice jeans and a flannel button up. The way the laces lock in my heal is impressive. These boots fit like they were custom made. Comfort level is out of this world. Virtually no break-in, and the insole is slowly, but perfectly, molding to my foot. Lastly, they arrived expeditiously, and shipping to the Alaskan interior is often troublesome! Thank you for a great product!
These are my all time favorite boots. They break in quick, they last a long time. Comfortable!! I wear them year round for work- not too hot in the summer not too cold in the winter.
I DESTROY footwear at work! These last a really long time!! I can’t say enough good things about Wilcox boot company!!
These boots look great with jeans or even styled up with khakis etc... Great comfort and quality. My son just ordered a pair for himself!
I suffer from injury-induced neuropathy in both feet as a result of tarsal tunnel syndrome. I use orthotics in my shoes and boots. As a true boot lover, I really wanted a heritage boot, but to my dismay, I couldn’t find any that accommodated orthotics. I was told I could buy a larger size (i.e. a boot that doesn’t actually fit). I thankfully found Wilcox and ordered the Fairfax. It’s a great boot. From the construction, high quality materials, and great looks, I was immediately impressed.
I’m between a 10-11, so I chose a 10.5. With the boots’ E width, it was a perfect fit. I’ve read other reviews where customers could wear the boots with no break-in. That has not been my experience. Given my diffuse foot issues, it was to be expected. However, I’ve never owned a quality leather good that didn’t require a break-in.
I’m looking forward to buying another pair!
Boots are meant to be
- well made
...and after they've kept you grounded through whatever you throw at them... they're meant to be resoled, not thrown away.
