These boots are value-priced service boots with a Dainite-like rubber sole and solid goodyear welt construction. Wilcox includes features like a full calfskin lining that you would expect on higher-end boots, but for a significantly lower price than many other boot makers. The leather is beautiful and has a smooth, waxy finish that almost feels like a Shell. It breaks in quickly, and hints at a lovely patina that will develop as the lighter leather in the core shows through. I haven’t seen another leather like this, and I love it. These might be the best value service boot you could find. Highly recommended.
I have had my boots 9 months. I wear them 5 days a week 8 to 10 hours a day and walk on an average of 3 miles a day in them. Very comfortable! I work in a large hospital an I’m on my feet all day again very comfortable! I get compliments on them all the time.
They show little to no wear.
I found Wilcox on Facebook. Skeptical, I waited for a sale to purchase my first pair. It was so worth it! I love my Boots. These boot will beat any crappy boots you buy from China or where ever. I’ve used them for light hiking and out on the town. They have a great unique look to them you can’t find anywhere else. You won’t regret buying a pair.
Ok, I have three pair of Wilcox boots and love all three of them. They are the most comfortable pair of boots I own. I use them with everything and I use them for everything. I prefer the boots over tennis shoes hands down. The boots are a bit pricey, but are well worth it.
Initially nervous as I have never bought boots online before. Pleasantly surprised! My Shiloh's look and feel great. Wide enough for my orthopedic insoles which makes them very comfortable and very stylish! They really look great with my blue jeans and I've gotten quite a few compliments. I am them for casual occasions and when riding my motorcycle.
The Kerns are super comfortable and fit perfectly. I have the tan belt as well and love it. It is great piece for any outifit. I cant wait to see what more wilcox boots has to offer!
This is my third pair of Fairfax boots. I enjoyed the first two pairs and then they took this line off market. However, when they brought them back, they were WAY better. The sole seems sturdier (which it was already but even more so) but the biggest change are the insoles. These are 10x better - much more comfortable than the previous ones. I feel like I'm walking on clouds every day. Great job.
I have had the Shiloh boot for about 90 days. Super short breakin period a couple wears. They are really comfortable wear them at work on my feet all day and feet aren’t that tired. They go with business and casual attire. Great buy will definitely consider another pair.
I just can’t seem to break them in don’t really need to wear them in the summer but had to wear them every other day and wear you hook the shoe lace pulled out of the leather
I have been looking for a boot like this for a long time. I use them almost everyday. I bought them in 2018. There was no break in period. The only thing I had to replace were the insoles and the shoe laces.
Can you tell I love these boots. My first Shiloh's have been re-soled twice and the patina is the best. I put them on more times a month than all the other's combined. The Kern's are a great comfortable casual city hiker for me, and go great with jeans or shorts. My newer Shiloh's and my Fairfax are great for the boot look and are substantial for a scooter ride.
If you only buy one pair or all, just do it you will be happy.
Love these boots… tough but dressy… wear them daily in busy medical practice … also handle outdoor work well… in many boots I wear custom insoles, but not these
Found Wilcox after searching for work / casual boots that weren't $300. VERY well made and the leather inside and out is amazing. Size is true and to the toe box is good for a EE foot. When they had the scratch and dent sale a couple of years ago I bought two pairs extra. One is on the shelf in the box waiting, and one I use for casual wear. I have moved one pair into the garage for yard work. The only disappointing issue is that the soles leave black marks on tile floors, worse when wet. Highly recommend these boots - although now they are priced as they should have been when they first started - good job with buying your way into the market. I'll buy them again even at the higher price.
Comfort and fit is outstanding, maybe the most comfortable boots i have worn. Only had them a short time so durability is unknown but I suspect they will be excellent.
I have been wearing a pair for several years have had them resoled and they are so comfortable they are my go to everyday shoes.
I have purchased these boots many times. I like them even though wearing them every work day the soles wear out after 6 months.
I'm on my second pair of these boots ... basically wore the others out. The leather uppers are still fine (and look neat a little "distressed") but the soles are worn down and paper thin. Love to resole them, but finding anyone to do that is impossible any more. SO ... purchased a second set and they will go in rotation as soon! Love them!
Wear them in cold and even rain w jeans. Stylish yet warm and dry. No need to resole, they’re quite durable and comfortable.
I love the way this boot looks and it appears to be very well constructed with top quality materials. But when I messaged with a question about the width the reply was very short saying “all of our boots are wide”. So I ordered in the size I wear in all my other boots. However upon receiving them I find my toes feel cramped. I have to admit I don’t wear them much to break them in more because the fit isn’t comfortable. I would recommend ordering a half size larger than you normally wear. For as much money as I spent I doubt if I’ll pay that again just to get a size that fits better. Kinda disappointed about that.
My Wilcox Fairfax boots maybe the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. I have had them re-soled due to wearing them so much. I can’t believe how many compliments I get on these boots, people ask me all the time what kind of boots are they. Will buy another pair in the future for sure.
Very stylish, extremely comfortable and worth every penny. Bought the brown and the black!
