What is CloudCush™ Comfort?
All-day comfort from the get-go.
Our proprietary comfort system of premium materials brings the best energy rebound, shock absorption, and all-day support you'll find in a boot.
Long story short, it's what makes our boots the most comfortable pair of boots you'll ever wear. Right out of the box and for years to come.
3 layers of comfort infused into the guts of classically constructed footwear.
Our obsession with comfort goes deep into our footwear. After we finalized our patterns & lasts, we set out to do something different beneath your foot.
CloudCush™ Comfort system consists of 3 layers of support unique within the industry.
• Top Layer: Orthoboost™ insole
• Interior Layer: Poron® foam
• Base Layer: Cork midsole
We go beyond simply using a premium-grade athletic insole, with a base layer of Poron® foam beneath our insoles. This allows you to replace your insole over time, or use an orthotic insert as needed, without losing the critical interior layer of the system - the quick-rebounding / anti-microbial Poron® foam footbed.
Comfort that ADAPTS to you
It's not just about comfort. CloudCush™ Comfort is an adaptable system that lets you customize the fit to your feet.
Between sizes or Too Narrow? Does your boot feel just a smidge too tight but you don't wanna go up a size and risk them being too big? Swap out the existing insole with a slightly thinner one to give your toes some extra wiggle room.
Too wide? Add a thicker insole to fill out the boot.
Custom insole, orthotic, heel lift, or insert? Our system allows for the use of any of these without sacrificing comfort.
Regardless of the insole you go with, our industry-leading PORON® foam footbed is still at the base of it all to provide premium shock absorption and quick rebound.
Ideal for many, adapts to any.

Let customers speak for us
I purchased a pair of Kerns for work after owning 2 pairs of Wilcox Fairfax, 1 black, 1 brown, which are my everyday go to outside of work. I found the Kern to be a little roomier in fit, very comfy, and the leather incredibly durable. I’ve delivered bread for 35 years and this job is surprisingly hard on shoes, usually the toes get chewed up from kicking around stacks of bread, a month in and they’re still flawless! I put in anywhere from 10,000 - 15,000 steps in a day and my feet have new life! I’ve always bought high quality shoes/boots especially for work, these are a game changer!
Things that can be improved upon:
Hook eyelets on the top two.
A bigger pull strap, I can’t hook my finger in there.
When it comes time to re-sole these, I will have the shoe cobbler put in bigger straps & hook eyelets.
Love these boots!
I have only had these boots a few weeks and I am exceptionally satisfied with this purchase. Some thoughts on my first few weeks:
Comfort - It took a week to give these boots the initial break in, which could be expected for any high quality leather boot), and after the first week, these boots feel AMAZING. I wear the boots all day long - and am on my feet all day long. I'm a teacher and I'm on my feet all day. By time I get home after working up to ten hours, I'm really in no rush to take them off as they're that comfortable! The sizing is great. I wear a 12.5 and the 13s feel perfect!
Support - I have flat feet, am recovering from two ankle surgeries, and have a neuroma in my foot (think walking on a marble) so I use an orthotic. Orthotic aside, these boots comfortably hug my foot and I have zero concerns with anything happening to my feet. These are the boots I've been looking for!
Looks: I admire the stitching on these boots every time I grab them and put them on. I wear them with jeans and dress casual pants and they look great either way. Hell, these boots would look great with just about anything. The stitching screams of great craftsmanship and the leather feels great. I'm getting lots of compliments on them!
Durability - Although I've only had these a few weeks, once you get these in your hands and on your feet, it's easy to see these boots are meant to last! That stitching though...
All-in-all I am exceptionally satisfied with these boots. While the price tag might deter some, keep in mind these boots will last YEARS AND YEARS! You will not be disappointed with these amazing boots!
I have my second pair of Wilcox boots and am very pleased with the fit, the comfort and the quality
I love my boots so far!! Quite comfortable yet it still needs some break in. I usually wear it casually along with jeans. I definitely will buy another pairs in black soon!
Wilcox belts are just incredibly well made. The 1.25 works for nearly everything I have. I'll definitely be a return customer for belts AND boots.
This is a really beautiful leather belt for a great price! You should definitely buy!
I love my Wilcox boots this is my second pair of these boots and I'm still wearing the first pair! Best boots I've ever worn
Recently bought my first pair of Wilcox boots, a beautiful pair of brown leather Shiloh's. They are superbly made and oh so comfortable. I look forward wearing them for years to come. Their service and delivery are excellent. I can whole heartedly recommend Wilcox.
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..
