Decision: What types of Panama Jack boots are there and which are right for you?

Once you have decided on Panama Jack, you need to decide which boots are right for you. We divide the boots into the following categories:

  • Lining of the boots
  • Heeled Boots
  • Chelsea Boots

In the following paragraphs we will explain in which aspects the boots differ and what the advantages and disadvantages are.

Panama Jack lined boots

There are different materials with which Panama Jack boots are lined. It depends primarily on the season and your activities. Basically, fur-lined boots are the right companions for the cold season; this can be real lambskin or synthetic fur.

They keep your feet warm and dry, so snow can't harm you. If you are looking for a shoe that you can wear all year round, we recommend leather lining. Since there are many different types of lining for shoes, we have provided you with an overview here:

Material Description
Lambskin Lambskin is breathable, regulates moisture and also regulates temperature. Lambskin adapts perfectly to the foot, is elastic and very hard-wearing.
Gore-tex Gore-tex is not only water-repellent, but waterproof. This means that no matter how heavy the rain, your feet will stay dry. Gore-tex is also breathable. This lining is especially recommended for outdoor activities.
Warm lining The sole here is padded with synthetic fur and has a shock-absorbing effect. Keeps feet warm and is perfect for winter.
Leather Leather lining is very breathable and can also absorb moisture well. Leather is also great for summer, for example to wear barefoot.

Panama Jack heeled boots and their advantages and disadvantages

There are also different types of heels for men's shoes, but we would like to focus on the classic heels for women's boots. Panama Jack boots are also available with heels with different linings.

Therefore, the primary question here is in which season you will wear this shoe the most. Heeled boots can restrict you a little.

Panama Jack, however, focuses on shoes that are suitable for a wide range of uses. This is also evident in the heels, as they are wide cut and you can go for a long walk in them just as you can in the very flat boots.

Advantages
  • Stretches the leg
  • Can be combined in many ways
  • Wide sole, therefore comfortable
Disadvantages
  • Not for all activities

Chelsea boots from Panama Jack and their advantages and disadvantages

In addition to lace-up boots, Panama Jack offers a wide range of Chelsea Boots.

Chelsea boots are a classic that originated in England and were immortalised by the Beatles.

In the past, only men wore Chelsea boots, but nowadays it's hard to imagine the ladies without them. As a distinctive feature, these boots have two rubber band inserts sewn into them. This rubber allows them to be put on comfortably, which is also possible with a wider instep, for example. The shaft height of the Chelsea boots is above the ankle.

Advantages
  • Easy to put on
  • Can be combined in many ways
  • Look chic
Disadvantages
  • Not for sporty activities
  • More of a city shoe

Buying criteria: These are the factors you can use to compare and evaluate Panama Jack boots

In the following, we will show you which features you should take a closer look at before buying. These aspects will make it easier for you to find the right boot for you.

In the following section, we will go into these criteria in more detail so that you know what to look for.

Inner lining

As already explained in the guide, there are several different linings that Panama Jack uses in their boots. To choose the right lining for you, think about your requirements for the boot, these questions can help you:

  • For which season am I looking for the boot?
  • Do I want to use this boot for sporting activities?

Once you have thought about this, you can compare the requirements with the lining. You will quickly realise that a leather lining might be right for you, as you will primarily be wearing the boot in spring and autumn. Of course, you can always consult an expert in a shoe shop to help you find the perfect boot.

Functionality

Basically, all Panama Jack boots are designed with functionality in mind. It is not for nothing that they are called "created to travel". If you travel a lot in the mountains, you need a boot with a very good tread and one that is waterproof in case you get caught in the rain during your expeditions.

To make the most of the boot's functionality, it is very important that you wear the boot in the right size. That's why we always advise you to try the boot on first and to break it in before a longer excursion.

This way, the boot can already adapt to your foot and you avoid unpleasant surprises on the way.

Height of the boot

Panama Jack boots have different shaft heights. For more stability when hiking, it is important to choose a boot that goes above the ankle. Otherwise, of course, it is also a matter of taste.

High boots are also available for women, which can be worn very well with dresses, for example. Some models from Panama Jack can be worn as boots and ankle boots.

Leather type

Panama Jack uses different types of leather for its boots. These are also different in terms of care. The following leathers are mainly used in the production:

Type of leather Description
Nappa leather Nappa leather is a smooth leather from calf or sheep. It can be embossed into even leather or have the skin embossed.
Nubuck leather Nubuck leather is sanded on the smooth side, creating a velvety surface.

Facts worth knowing about Panama Jack boots

What is the best way to care for Panama Jack boots?

The care depends on the leather of your boot.

How do I find the best shoe size for me?

Many people wear shoes in the wrong size, which can lead to problems with the musculoskeletal system in the long term. This can lead, for example, to a malposition of the toes or even to posture problems.

It is important to know that not only shoes that are too small can cause damage, but also shoes that are too big and do not provide the best support. In many specialised shops you can have your foot measured to find the optimal size for you.
