    About the Rubicon Wool lined

    Rubicon country shooting boot, ultimate hand crafted waterproof but breathable leather country boot. This boot is quite simply luxury personified. The Alpine stitched, 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. This boot is fitted with British shearling lambs wool not only to keep you cosy on the those chilly days but the lining offers a super soft lining for your foot to sit relaxed in, the Sympatex lining also allows the foot to breaths so you will not overheat but just remain comfortable. This is probably the best leather country boot you can buy.  As with all of our boots the soles can be replaced, a boot that can last and last.  Styled in the UK and hand made in Italy.

    Product Care

    How to care for your Rubicons

    A tin of leather conditioner is supplied with each pair of boots.  To follow on we recommend a UK Granger’s leather conditioner and Cherry Blossom (Mahogany) renovating cream.  Both of these products are readily available in many UK stores but we will always have stocks of them if you are short.  We only recommend these products as they have been made especially for use with a Sympatex waterproof and breathable lining.  Tests have shown that other products can damage the lining.

      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

        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

      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’ !!

        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

      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

      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.

      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

      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

    10. 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

    11. 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

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

      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
