"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 simple and classic lines of the Shiloh, they transition from the workshop to a night out with ease. You can take them anywhere.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.
The Shiloh Boot fits true-to-size in length and width for most people.
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 (back) - 5"; boot height (front) - 6⅛"
Whole sizes: 8 to 15
Half sizes: 8.5 to 11.5

After thousands of motorcycle miles and countless hikes, these boot have held up and are still my go to boot for any adventure.
I had some initial problems with the first pair I bought and let me say the customer service is better than 99% of the companies I have ran across. I got my replacement boots in and am smitten. I won't say they are my new favorite pair of shoes but pretty close. Comfortable as heck. It didn't take but maybe a week to get them broken in to where they didn't kill me to wear all day. That being said I don't like when I'm not wearing them. Looking forward to seeing how they wear in the next few months and years. I couldn't wait to get them out of the box.
I like the boots a lot. They fit really well( size 12) I was worried they wouldn’t be narrow enough but they are just right, I have narrow feet and generally boots are too wide. They took about 4 or 5 seatings to break them in, but are now quite comfortable. Really good looking with casual clothing.I really like the size of the loops at the back to pull the boots on, you can get a finger in them, which I’ve never seen before.Two things I wish were better. 1. The quick loops at the top are sharp and are cutting my laces. 2. I wish the soles were a harder material, I have to have mine resoled, the area under the ball of my foot has worn smooth and the back of the heel is wearing fast. If it was just the lacing issue I’d give them 5, but I’m pretty disappointed in how quickly the sole material has worn out.
I thought looking at the boots they would be a bit too stiff but once worn it didn’t talks long to get used to them. Wore them all day and didn’t not have my feet hurt at the end of the day. Feel bad on the abuse they will get because they are great looking boots.
Sizing little small in width go with wide. Own 3 pairs
These boots . Are what they say they are, I've work building swimming pools,and believe me. These boots are super durable... they're good for work or just to wear casually .. I've been wearing them for a while now. As work boots. 🤔 Did wore them a few times before deciding to take them at work..
When i bought them i first thought i was being scammed 🤣🤣 but than 😳 i was contacted by the customer service team 🤣 and said they were on the Way . Now .
Are the boots high quality? Yes, they are. What’s wrong with my boots then? As many reviewers here say, the boots tend to be on the smaller side. I ordered size 9.5 as that’s my usual size but the boots feel tight. When I first got them I thought I had to walk around a few times, maybe it was my feet.. i wanted them to feel comfortable, I wanted to want them but after a used them a few days I realize that perhaps I should have ordered a size 10 instead :(
Like I said the boots themselves are perfect. The online buying process not so good as one cannot try different sizes before handing over nearly $300… nothing beats in-store buying. What I would recommend is to maybe buy 2 or 3 pairs, choose which one you’re really comfortable with and return the other two. Online purchasing failed me this time.
I believe I have now owned these boots for over two years (maybe three). I bought them on sale as a "Factory seconds" boot, meaning it may have blemishes or discoloration. When I got them I thought they looked great. I also have metal in my left foot making it difficult to buy shoes. I wear an 11-11.5, with my left foot being wider then my right. These fit great, leaving good room in the toe box. I purchased a size 11.5. I use them riding my motorcycle (hence the dark toe on the left boot), winter use (everyday), and for work (all winter, most of spring and Fall, some summer. I do a lot of driving, in and out of shops, repair facilities, municipalities, etc..). I oil them usually twice a year (I believe they have been oiled 3 or 4 times, it is probably time again) . They have not torn or pulled apart, and there is still a bit of rubber on the soles. I feel I have not been easy on these and they are still just as comfortable as new. I still wear them on a regular basis (like today). Great boot.
