About the Rubicon Sympatex – Men’s Country Boots

The Rubicon, A Brandecosse classic and one of the very first men’s country boots in our range. The Rubicon is our take on traditional country tall boot styling. Fully leather clad with our signature 2.6mm Hydrophobic leather, adjustable rear guesset and Norwegian welted construction. While introducing modern technologies in Sympatex H20ut breathable and waterproof linings and a Vibram Montagna Block outsole. Producing a tall country boot you can count on to perform season after season, while looking the part.

A double stitched, Norwegian welted construction is something rarely seen in the disposable days we live in, but the result is a boot that could quite literally last a lifetime. Thanks to the replicability of the outsoles and durability associated with this type of country boot construction. For traction, a classic Vibram Montagna outsole provides comfort and grip you can rely on.

A rear adjustable buckled gusset allows a refined fit up the leg, while an additional volume adjuster insole ensures the perfect fit around the foot. Internally, a full Sympatex H20ut lining protects you from the elements.

A cold weather essential for any lover of the outdoors whether you’re walking your dog on a wet Autumn day, or standing on the peg during a chilly January morning. The Rubicon is the ultimate tall country boot for all your outdoor pursuits this season.

      Just received a pair of these (v. prompt delivery as well)- beautiful looking boots – even better than the photos. They are taller than I expected, probably a 1 1/5” than my Dubarry boots they are replacing, so about 18” at a guess.

      Only issue (which I stress is personal to me) is that the volume at the heel is really big. I usually take size 12 (UK) and it is a generous 12 (which I like as I have very broad forefeet), but the heel is also voluminous, which means I am getting a lot of heel lift as I walk (and not being a lace up is hard to adjust, so will need some volume adjusters). An 11 1/2 might have been a better fit for me, if they had one. The higher part of the uppers are also generous, and even with very big calves, I am still on the tightest point in the buckles with a lot of free room at the ankles (however this does allow more
      room for trousers/thick socks).

      Sole unit is very good, with deep tread and decent stiffness, which should deal with rough terrain but stiff provide enough flex to be comfortable over longer distances. Overall they look like they fit my need to combine my Melinda Borneo walking boots with welly-style height for the extremely muddy terrain where I live. They are also very handsome items of footwear for about town!

      5/5 for build quality, but probably loses a point for the slightly odd fit (for me). Consider going down a half size from usual.
