Pull-up leather; color brown
Width: Slightly Narrow
It can be a bit tough to get my foot in due to the small opening and stiff pull-up leather. The look is great, but it is very snug at the heel and mid foot. I have gotten used to it, but it took some time to adjust. The creasing in the leather is very tight for the most part, and the boots still look terrific.

I bought these as a work boot for chores, yardwork, whatever I need them for. These are super comfortable and perfectly tough for anything I reasonably need. I got them slightly large for a relaxed fit, and they are perfect that way. It may not be the best way for using these as everyday intense labor work boots, but it is enough for me. QC is a bit lacking. Crooking stitching is present on the welt at the toe area and on the sole in the same area. Other than that, these are good, comfortable boots to kick around in.

Fudge Crazy Horse Leather
Based on my previous purchase of Jim Green vellies, I had high expectations for their African Ranger. These met those expectations and surpassed them easily. There is a new, much improved insole with these. That may be standard to all JG boots now, or maybe just the African Ranger but either way it is a massive improvement. These came with a bit less snug fit originally than my vellies, but they are still essentially perfect for me. These are my go-to weekend shoes for anything from light yardwork to running around town.

Initially somewhat tight over the ball of the foot, but after some consistent wear, they became much more flexible and fit very nicely. The wide toe box is great. They darken quite a bit over time and look better as they age.

These came in and had no QC issues that I noticed. Very good budget option to get into the boot world. Some finishing details could have been improved, but overall I had no complaints about their condition upon arrival. Wear has been relatively minor, with scuffs causing an interesting highlight to the deep brown color of the leather. These are primarily worn in the office and for light outdoor use/walking. I like the fit across the middle and the ball of the foot, but the heel could be a bit more snug as I still have some slip and there is no rough internal counter material to hold the heel in place.
