      These boots were slightly tight on arrival but in less than five miles they already felt like slippers.
      Far comfier than my old wellingtons and much more stylish.
      I can’t wait to wear them next shoot season.

    2. Reece

      These are without any doubt the best boots I will ever own. Normally cost £395, but my partner purchased these for £240. Now don’t mistake my opinion that these are not worth £395, because they are. I and the finances and income could not afford to pay £395. I was very tempted to purchase 2 pairs because of the deal and the quality of these boots, one wool lined and one without. Basically live in them for the rest of my life.

      Moving on then… Full length boot that stops about half an inch by the knees. Fully lined with a super soft shearling wool. Perfect fit and true to size. They will stretch a little once broken in.

      Originally I searching the Internet for some rubber wellingtons, and by chance I found these. Instead of worrying about cracking of rubber, or sole separation these are fully thick leather and have a very good quality welt. It’s design is much more watertight than Goodyear welted soles. Vibram sole has a very thick tread. For me these are leather Wellingtons, waterproof, tall and durable.

      Overall these boots with great care will last me my lifetime. I love everything about these boots.

      Worth mentioning Brandecosse also sell a boot care kit. This comes with everything you need to nourish, polish, and maintain the leather.

      Lastly is how quickly the customer service response is with everything from sizing, delivery and other enquiries. So a thank you to Jane (Customer service team member).

    3. Roger Neal

      I bought a pair of Rubicon wool boots a few years ago. After a quick clean and polish they look as good as new. The robust quality and comfort are so beyond any other boots that I have owned there was no choice but to replace my current fading other brand walking boots with a pair of Fagiano boots. When my summer walking boots need replacing I will be buying a pair of Capriolos without hesitation.
      Jane is always helpful with advice on sizing.

    4. Dr G T Rhodes

      Fantastic quality beautiful boots. Pics on the website look good but close up and handling the boots you can really feel the quality. Beautifully made it’s going to be a shame to wear them in the mud on the shoot this weekend! Service and delivery top class. I was a little apprehensive about the cost but after going through a pair of wellies every season I can see how these boots are made to last and should be well worth the investment. Thanks

    5. Joe

      I ordered these boots as have been looking for an upgrade to old leather boots. They arrived within 2 days and the customer care was unbeatable. I echo all of the comments above and am blown away with the quality and comfort of the Rubicon wool lined boots. Its clear they will last decades! Thanks so much for your help and its clear that this is a company that cares passionatly about their customers and products.

    6. Karl (verified owner)

      Just received my Arno Boots from Brandecosse, excellent quality Boot, very stylish, and superb Fit. I had struggled with sizing, but a phone call with the folks at Brandecosse helped to determine the optimum sizing, its great to deal with a company that takes customer service so seriously, I could not have asked for a better experience.

    7. Martin miller

      My boots I have had for over 10 years and during the winter I live in them , the shearling lining has kept me warm and the quantity of leather has stood up to the brambles and thorns over the years but alas they need replacing after many years of service there was only one place to get my replacement boots as the service you get at brandecosse is friendly and very helpful thank you for my second pair of boots

        Hi Martin,

        Good to chat and good to know those old faithfuls have seen you through thick and thin, new ones will be on their way to you on Monday. Kindest regards

    8. Jonathan Bone (verified owner)

      I phoned Brandecosse around lunchtime on the Tuesday to enquire about certain measurements / fitments (I have very a very narrow calf measurement) and spoke to Jane at length. She very kindly went off to measure the boots and phoned me straight back to discuss. I ordered the Rubicon’s then and there and Thursday morning saw them land on my doorstep. By Friday morning I was standing on a peg wearing them, suffice to say that the boots elicited more positive comments than my standard of shooting on that particular morning!
      I spend the vast majority of my life wearing boots and have been through all of the big names, along with some of the lesser known, and can say with some authority that the standards of materials and construction are second to none. Couple this with service which is nothing short of exemplary and you have a product / supplier which is as close to perfect as you will find anywhere.
      I can say with certainty that when my current stalking boots wear out they will be replaced with a pair from Brandecosse.

        Dear Jonathan, Thank you so very much for your kind words, chuffed to bits and even more pleased that you are happy with your boots, now that you have broken them in they will be faithful pals for many a year, thanks again very kind. Jane

      Hi Folks,
      just received my Rubicon boots they look great and they are already comfy, can’t wait to use them this coming shooting season. great service prompt and kept in touch as to when arriving. my local gun shop has struggled to find boots like these so will pass on your details.

      • Jane Trueman

        Thank you Steve, so very good to know you are pleased with your Rubicon’s and thank you for your kind words. Best Jane

    10. David Smeaton Sporting (verified owner)

      As with my initial review on purchase in December I am more than pleased with these boots. Spent the last two weeks of January in Scotland shooting clay and live game – out for the whole day every time – snow, ice and -9 degrees on more than one occasion. I can honestly say my feet were warm and very comfortable throughout and the Vibram sole performed as expected giving me the confidence to tackle any terrain.
      Out yesterday in lashing rain, ankle deep in mud and wading through rivers & streams – yes – dry, warm & no slippage under foot.
      Can’t recommend them highly enough – outstanding

      • Jane Trueman

        Hello David,

        So very good of you to give the time to do this updated review for us, nothing is better than hearing how our rage of boots perform with their owners. We have just come back from a visit to meet up with the chaps in the factory in Italy, discussing new ideas and seeing them complete our next order, due to arrive shortly. Good to work with such passionate and skilled people who really care about making a quality product.

        Good to know your Rubicons have become faithful pals in whatever you ask of them.

        Kindest regards Jane

    11. David Smeaton (verified owner)

      Just received my Rubicon wool lined boots – great fast service – 40+ years as a professional in the great outdoors – these boots rank among the best I have ever had for build quality, finish & fit. The manufacturing quality is outrageously superb and I love the simplicity of design.
      Obviously very pleased – they will now be put through ‘the mill’ for the remainder of the game season to see if they ‘live up to the billing’.
      Presently gently breaking them in around the house much to the amusement of the ‘boss’ !!

      • Jane Trueman

        David, thank you so much for your note, it is always a huge joy to get feedback. We have put a daft amount of time into every minute part of the build of the whole range down to the grade of the laces, never tire of compliments over them. More than pleased you are happy with them David. Kindest regards Jane

    12. Joe

      Just received a pair of Rubicon Wool lined today, cracking quality. Joe Kent

    13. Patrick

      A group of my friends bought a pair each of these boots last year, meeting up with them again recently on our first shoot this year they are still delighted with them. I have just received mine, I don’t usually go to the trouble of leaving reviews but they are outstanding. Patrick Surrey November 17

    14. Ted

      Delighted with these boots, you can see the quality in them, received them a few months ago. Ted – Essex March 17

    15. Mr Downs

      I have just received a pair of these Rubicon tall boots as earlier in the year I purchased a pair of Brontolare, very pleased with the quality of
      these boots, shooting season here a tall boot needed. Expensive initially but you do get what you pay for with these. Mr Downs from Yorkshire.

      Such lovely looking boots of fantastic quality with the benefit of a luxury lining and full waterproofing. Stunning, practical and very comfortable.
      Add to which the service has been second to none in every way. Very many thanks.

    17. Ted

      I have just returned from a sporting holiday in Canada first outing for my Rubicon boots, I had wanted the un-insulated so I could build up my own
      choice of warmth, they proved invaluable. First class boot and after two weeks of constant wear they clean up as good as new. Ted Scotland

    18. R. Murray

      My Rubicon boots arrived today, all I can say is they are of such high quality you have to view them to believe it. The fit which I talked to Jane
      about is perfect and the wool lining is really warm. I like the fact that the heel is not lined ensuring you can not damage that area, good thinking
      on your part. Another great point is the soles being Goodyear welted therefore you can renew the Vibram soles. WELL DONE, A TOP PRODUCT. R. Murray

    19. John T.

      I promised myself this shooting season that I would treat myself to a pair of these boots. I have seen others shooters in them and only heard good
      things. They arrived this week, the quality is outstanding – delighted with my purchase. John T. Devon

    20. Rory

      Superb service, ordered on the Monday boots arrived on the Tuesday. Glad I phoned for a chat and then placed my order over the phone as I was able to
      discuss my size requirements ending up with the perfect fit. Many boots claim they are the best and I have had many of them but these are what they
      say they are. Rory – Dorset Nov 2012

    21. Charles

      Delighted with my Reykjavik boots, a superb product indeed, I shall be wearing them on every shoot. Charles Sussex UK

    22. Holly

      I have had my pair of boots for over six months and are doing me very well. I wear them every day as I work in a farm shop and also love getting into
      the outdoors. They have proved very functional and incredibly comfortable. I cycle in them and they get really quite muddy, but they clean very easily
      and if anything, i feel, look better as they age. The stitching is all still perfect and the soles have barely worn. They are absolutely fabulous and
      I get complimented on them all the time. Holly W. Scotland
