The Most Wanted Kicker Boots
Kickers Kick Hi Core Boots
Kickers Kick Hi Core Boots are a classic, practical and playful choice that have been around since the very start of the brand. Made out of smooth leather and set on a chunky long-lasting rubber sole, these lace-up boots go perfectly with jeans. Similar to other Kicker boots like the Kick Hi Mash-Up or the Kick Hi Tan boots, this design comes in an array of colors and sizes. It’s finished with top-stitch detailing, contrast rope laces, and Kickers branded tabs.
Kickers Legendary Boots
The brand’s Legendary boots are an updated version of an iconic 1970s style. This model is a well-crafted equivalent, with a sturdy rubber sole, an upper made from soft but hardy suede, and edgy contrast stitching. The lining is made out of leather for in-shoe comfort. Like the Kick Hi Core boots, these also come in a variety of colors and sizes.
Kickers Lennon Boots
This moccasin-style boot has metal eyelets, rope laces, stitching, and the trademark leather Kicker Fleurette. Like the Kick Hi Core and the Hi Tan Leather boots, the soles on the Lennon design boasts Kicker's standard hard-wearing rubber.
The Kicker Boots Sizing Guide
Kicker boots use men’s UK sizing, and you can use the below chart to see how this correlates with US and EU sizes. For example, if you normally wear a US 10 or EU 44, you should buy your Kicker boots in a UK 9.5.
If you are still unsure which size to go for, then we suggest measuring your foot and comparing its length with the table below. To measure your foot, grab a piece of paper, a pencil, and some measuring tape. Place your foot on the paper, draw around it, then measure the length of your foot from your heel to the big toe.
Kickers boots run true to size, and we recommend taking your usual size.

How To Care For Your Kicker Boots
Your men’s Kicker boots should last you a long time if you provide them with regular care and maintenance.
To clean your Kickers boots, use a brush or cloth to brush away any dirt on the boot before removing what’s left with a soft damp cloth. The same applies when cleaning the rubber sole.
Regularly polish and/or spray your boots with a thoughtfully chosen leather polish, nubuck, or suede cleaner. Use a polish, foam, or spray that also nourishes the boot and protects it from severe weather conditions such as snow, rain, and sleet. Use a spray protector to shield your shoes against the everyday weather. Double-check that any products you use have dried before wearing your boots again.
Keep your boots odor-free with a specialist footwear deodorant spray.
