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!
Masculine, high quality leather boots that go well with any casual winter outfits.
Still breaking them in as I feel friction at the heel, but gradually becoming more comfortable especially with thicker socks.
Fits true to size, and since I have a wider size E foot they also work well.
Very comfortable no need to break them in, very satisfied
If you’re looking for stylish comfortable and sturdy boots, look no further. These are the ones for you.
I've owned a lot of boots these are by far the most comfortable and well built. I've gotten the most compliments on these boots of what a great looking boots these are.
I was surprised how light they actually are, and how comfortable they are right out of the box. So impressed by the quality of the shoe
Love the style and the feel. I wear them daily!
Great fit and very comfortable! Top quality and I couldn't be more pleased!
These boots are incredible! I was expecting a long painful break in period, possibly never becoming comfortable. Boy was I surprised! Zero break in period, they fit perfectly! Very comfy! I loved them so much I bought a second pair in brown!
Nice boot. Super comfy. Very well made. Require little to no break-in period. I am very happy with my purchase. I wear an 8.5 running shoe and ordered 8.5 in the Kern, fit is perfect.
This is my second pair of Wilcox boots I have owned, and like the first I use them for church, work and play because one of the most comfortable shoe I ever had. Would recommend them to anyone.
These boots are great!
Bought these as an alternative to dress shoes. They look great with slacks, jeans , or khakis.
Very comfortable out of the box and fit like a glove a week after daily wear!

Tough & Soft
BUILT TO TAKE A BEATING...
AND FLOAT ON CLOUDS WHILE DOING IT.
It's not just about comfort.
4 Layers of Comfort that ADAPT to you
CloudCush™ Comfort is an adaptable system that lets you customize the fit to your feet.
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.
Natural cork base layer that creates an imprint of the wearer’s foot. The cork slowly forms to your foot over time, and increases the comfort of the pair every wear.
CELTEC® shaped shank that provides stability to the boot, and helps with arch support.
Anti-microbial PORON® foam footbed which makes the boots feel soft right from the first wear and provides premium shock absorption and quick rebound from sunrise to sunset.
Removable OrthoBoost™ foam insole to provide all-day support and give your feet a soft cradling feel (that would please most podiatrists).
Where Durability Meets Comfort
The welt is a strip of leather about an inch wide that connects the upper leather to the midsole. Its outer edge cam be seen around the edge of the boot.
This is the tell-tale sign of the highest tier of shoemaking that allows boots to be easily resoled and fully rebuilt, allowing them to last for years to come
XL EXTRALIGHT® SOLES
XL EXTRALIGHT® soles are more comfortable, lighter, stronger and better performing than similar foam wedge soles with the same mechanical properties. Weighing 3x less than other materials, they are light, flexible and a natural shock absorber, for stress-free foot and back comfort.
This means the leather used on our boots has not been sanded, buffed, or treated in anyway to remove natural imperfections. Sanding or buffing removes the layer of skin below the hair, but this is the strongest and most durable part of the hide - so you don’t want to lose it.
This leather shows characteristics of the hide it came from, and only gets better with age.
This age of leather is perfect for the inside of the boot. It’s buttery smooth but still durable and breathable.
Together with our CloudCush™️ Comfort system, this makes for a snug pair of boots.
Day 1 to Day 365
Built To Take A Beating
Overtime with use, your leather gear will buff out marks and scratches into a rich and lustrous patina that is exclusively yours. From day one to 365, your boots will weather but not wear out, creating a handsome, rich character unique to you.
