Jim Green African Ranger - Black
Sorry, this product is out of stock from L'Atelier Monsieur but we’ve found some alternatives for you.
The Boot that Puts Boots onto Rangers
Each year hundreds of buffalo are removed from our local reserves for diseases and population control measures, with everything on the animal being utilized but the skin we decided something needed to be done.
We sent out a skinning and salting team into a conservancy (logistical nightmare) to gather and prepare these skins for our tannery.
These skins were purchased from the reserve, raising much needed funds for a by-product that would have been disposed of.
Not only do we raise funds for the reserve by purchasing the skins but we will also through the sale of the boots donate a bunch of boots to rangers in need through our Boots for Rangers Program.
A full circle process from start to finish.
50% of Rangers don’t have access to sufficient Boots and Gear and over 40% are required to purchase their own Boots.
With the future of our wilderness areas in the hands of those with boots on the ground, Jim Green Footwear and The Game Rangers Association of Africa (GRAA) have come together to make sure this issue is addressed.
Inadequate gear for rangers leads to a low morale and effects rangers wellbeing. With Rangers being on the front line of our conservation areas, a quality pair of boots is essential for everyday tasks
We put out a survey to Rangers from Across Africa and from that pulled together various focus points as to what is needed in the ultimate all round Ranger Boot. From that we give to you the African Ranger – A Boot Designed By Rangers For Rangers
NB: Due to the extreme conditions African Buffalo live in, the leather will vary from pair to pair, every boot will have a unique texture and look to it. The product images used show the difference between what you can get.
Longer break in period compared to the original leathers we use as African Buffalo skin is very tough and rugged
For every 10 pairs sold, Jim Green donate a pair to a Ranger
