"I prefer the boots over tennis shoes hands down." - Wilcox Wearer
Say goodbye to aching arches, heels and knees. We have no time for long break-in periods, hefty price tags and boots that fall apart in less than a year. We only make boots that:
- are built to last a lifetime
- support your feet
- are fairly price
To see you through the next 10 years of adventures, we use the very best materials (hello full grain leather) and methods to craft every pair of Wilcox boots. More importantly, the support from each pair's CloudCush™️ Comfort system means your feet (and body) will also be up for all the shenanigans.
And there will be many. With the Fairfax, they're fit for off-roading but the brogue detail makes them a little bit fancy too. You can dress them up or down.
Give 'em a go because there are NO RISKS involved with the 100 Day Wilcox Worry-Free Warranty! We'll ship them to you for FREE (in the US) so you can knock 'em about for a few months and if you don't fall in love, then ship them back to us (for FREE) and we will give you a full refund - no questions asked!
BUILT TO LAST A LIFETIME
These are not your average boots. Every pair is built with our 4 layer CloudCush™️ Comfort system on the inside:
Read more about what this means for your feet here.
The top layer is a removable insole so you can easily adapt your pair to fit orthotics, custom insoles, heel lifts or inserts.
The outside of the boots are made of full grain waxed cow leather (the toughest kind of leather to last through the years). The inside is lined with soft buttery calfskin from heel-to-toe.
The Shiloh has a two-part mini-lug natural rubber outsole that can easily be replaced by your local cobbler thanks to each pair's 360° Goodyear Welt construction.
Have the odd mark and scuff on your boots? Don't worry this tells you the leather on your boots is top quality and adds to their character. However, if you want that fresh-out-of-the-box look follow our boot care instructions here.
Order the size you most commonly wear in US-sized casual or athletic shoes. If you prefer a roomier toe box, consider going up a half size or replacing the standard insole with a thinner insole to give more wiggle room to your toes.
Between sizes? Choose the larger size. For example: If some of your casual shoes are 9 and some are 9.5, order a 9.5 in our boots.
Width: E - slightly more breathing room than standard width to allow for thicker socks and comfort through the waist of the foot.
Wide Foot? Some people go up a half size to get more width if they need, but that's up to you. You can also swap out the insole for a thinner insole to give even more space.
Height: Heel height - 1⅜"; boot height - 5⅞"
Whole sizes: 8 to 15
Half sizes: 8.5 to 11.5

These boots are super comfortable with minimal break in period if you do it right. I personally put on thicker socks and wore them around the house for 30 minutes of walking, and wearing them 2 times and that’s all it took. I have two pairs of Fairfax boots, one in black and one in rust. I also have a pair of rust Shiloh boots and they are all very well made, comfortable look great and will last you for years to come. Without sounding like I work for Wilcox, buy them!! (I don’t work for or have any affiliation with Wilcox.)
I forgot to mention, I have a pair of brown Kerns on the way!
For the last 6 years I've worn these around the streets of urban and suburban Minneapolis, MN mostly in the winter months for work & play. They've been quite comfortable and stylish. (Although the pull loops on the black pair interfere with the way my jeans or slacks hang!). Over the past year I was wearing them less frequently as walking with hard soles on concrete and asphalt had become a bit painful for my knees and heels. Rather than give up on them, I chose to replace the inner soles with some that had more cushion and thickness to them. Bam! What a difference! They are much more comfortable. Then, about two weeks ago, I took a week's vacation to Northeastern Minnesota and wore these boots every day. Hiking or bumming around the campsite on the edge of the wilderness I have never owned boots that perform as wonderfully as these. So very comfortable! Up and down hills and over rocks the tread and the ankle support were tremendous. Mind you this state is in a serious drought right now so I could not test them in mud or rain on this trip but I think the past experience with snow is sufficient. These are terrific boots. They're great around town and absolutely stellar when taken off road. I'm looking forward to using them more off road in the future. I think the tread has a few more years left on them. Thanks Wilcox for some fabulous footwear!
A high quality bolt boot. Very comfortable and looks good too. Started as a Sunday boot but soon became the ones I choose thru the week. 2nd pair I’ve had and am not disappointed in any way. There service department it top notch.
I liked the toe cap on the Fairfax so took a chance. Wore daily to work office/field. 90/10. Wear on motorcycle. Re-soled heal still going strong. Very Comfortable, right out of the box. And I still have all the lacing hooks. Great value and quality.
These boots are awesome. First, they are crafted in fine materials and made with quality construction. They are made to take a beating and last. The insoles are comfortable and easy to wear all day. Plus since they are real leather, they clean up nicely and you can wear them out at night. The size and fit is great. I wear a size 11 in Converse Chuck Taylor’s, and found that an 11.5 in the Fairfax was the best fit. I’ve had my first pair for several years and recently purchased another because I wanted them in black too. Highly recommended!!
A better upgrade than the last pair that I had which was probably three years ago that being said I’m a biker so I ride so you’re gonna see a little damage to the inside and outside of the actual shoe it takes a while to break in but once they break and they fit nicely a little bit of discomfort on the heel whether you lace them tightly or not it just takes a little bit for that to happen the inside of the shoe is markedly better craftsmanship than before. like I said so far so good
Woo-hoo. You brought the originals back. I just might have to buy a pair in black. The brown ones are still going strong and just getting better with time. Gotta love the way quality leather forms and lasts.
Very comfortable and look awesome, for those who like a rugged lug and look with some nice subtle detail. They are also very well-made.
A terrific boot! And very affordable for what you're getting.
I have two pairs of Wilcox boots. One in black and one in brown.
I wear my black ones a lot more, the leather that Wilcox uses is very soft and gets softer with time. Not only is the sole of the boot comfortable but the leather wrapping around your foot adds to it.
Makes you feel like you have a giant sock on. I’ve had them now for 3.5 years.
Highly recommend as it is hard to come by boots that will have comfort that will last years.
