The Fairfax Boot fits true-to-size in length & width for most feet.

Size guide: Order the size you most commonly wear in US-sized sneakers.

Between sizes? Choose the larger size. 
• For example: If some of your sneakers are 9 and some are 9.5, order a 9.5 in our boots.

Width: E - All our boots are an E width. This means a little more breathing room than standard shoe width (D).

Wide Foot? Most people with EE width find our boots fit them well if they either (a) go up a half size, (b) replace our standard insole with a thinner insole for more room, or (c) do both.
• You can do the same thing (a) or (b) if you prefer a roomier toe box or like to wear thicker socks. Either way gives you a little more wiggle room around your toes.
• 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.

Full sizes: 8 - 15
Half sizes: 8.5 - 11.5

Comfy, but dry…and…

My Fairfax’s are very comfortable out of the box! No need for break-in! BUT…the boot leather was really dry when I received them. I put a coating of Huberd’s Shoe Grease on them and now they’re fine. AND…the shoelaces on these boots were flimsy, so were the ones on my Shilohs. Replaced both pair.

Really like these boots

This was my first pair of Wilcox boots. Didn’t know how to size them…. Took two tries to finally get the right size but customer service was great. Once I got the the right ones they have been awesome. Wear them often. Well made, look sharp and really comfortable. Will be a repeat customer.

Best boots ever

I was always looking for a traditional man’s boot a boot a man from the 30’s
Or 40’s would be familiar with.
Your boot fits that bill. The pig skin lining is a added plus for comfort. I will always chose quality over Chinese crap.

3rd + Pair of boots

I have owned Wilcox boots since 2017. 2 x Shiloh rust brown (one is now a work pair and a newer not as beat up pair) and 1 x Fairfax Black. These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. Not only do they feel good, they also look great. As they break in, they seem to stretch a bit making it easier for thicker socks if you are working or hiking outside. I recently had my black Fairfax resoled and shined up, and they look like new.
I also just bought my son a pair of Century's for Christmas so he has a nice pair for college. - so far so good!
The only item that is annoying is some of the quick lace hooks have broken from wear and tear, which either can be repaired or you can slip the laces through the hole..no biggie.
Do yourself and your feet a favor and buy a pair, you will not be disappointed.

Still going strong

I bought these a few years ago and use them hard. (Harder than I should've to be honest. Hunting, hiking, motorcycle, farm.) They look even better with time. I've had them re-soled once,(hunting trip in hard/wet conditions ripped off the heel.) Still love them whether polished or not.
Only gripe is the back/forth shipping took a while and the insert that came w/ them was virtually useless, just a piece of fabric almost.
(I got my own inserts,) and that was all they needed.
I've considered buying a 2nd pair but don't want to spend the dough yet.
I've had other friends purchase, and I'm glad we all have.
Most of the time they're not polished.

GOOD TO GO

The Fairfax is fit for whatever you're up to - casual, dusty, or thanks to the brogue detail even a little dressy when they need to.

Wear them with worn-in jeans & a leather jacket, or with a shirt and blue jeans for a laid back look.

They'll work with whatever you're working with.

CLOUDCUSH️™ COMFORT

Layer 1: 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.

Layer 2: CELTEC® shaped shank that provides stability to the boot, and helps with arch support.

Layer 3: 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.

Layer 4: Removable OrthoBoost™ foam insole to provide all-day support and give your feet a soft cradling feel (that would please most podiatrists).

Removable OrthoBoost™ Insole

Shoe Construction

The heritage constructed Fairfax boot features a 360° Goodyear Welt with a two-part natural rubber sole.

The full-grain leather uppers and calfskin lining make it incredibly durable yet comfortable enough to wear all day.

GOODYEAR WELT

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

FULL-GRAIN UPPERS

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.

CALFSKIN LINING

This age of leather is perfect for the inside of the boot. It's buttery smooth but still durable and breathable.

Behind the lining the boots are generously padded on the upper, the quarters, and the tongue. At the back of the boots, there's a generous cushioning all around the collar. Together, this makes for a snug pair of boots.
