Agreed, you can’t go wrong doing business with Jim/Africa Sporting Creations. Unmatched customer service in all my dealings.

I was surfing the Courteney website this past weekend and came across this interesting picture:

Nothing says "Dagga Boy" like John Sharp emerging from a mud hole.

Check out his watch!

When I was corresponding with John and peppering him with questions prior to booking, one thing he made clear...Courteney boots are his preferred boot for stalking in close to Buffalo.

I bought a pair from Jim at African Sporting Creations and the more I wear them the more I love them.

I have Morton's foot and these are the only boots I have worn that have not aggravated my tendon!

Bought mine from @African Sporting Creations about 4 years ago I believe. I have worn them every season except winter (well once or twice then too just to see). They are my favourite camp, dog walking, hiking and gardening boot!

I bought a pair of Courtney Selous boots from Jim in the spring. Excellent service. He really made sure I got the right size by going beyond what I expected for service. That was much appreciated guidance for my first safari. And the boots got 30+ days of hunting this year in Namibia, Idaho, MT and MN. They really are quiet boots.

I bought a pair of Courteney boots at DSC. I go through 2 pairs of hunting boots a year on average guiding hunts. I bought these Courteney’s and wore them around a few weeks after buying them to help break them in before hunting. I just walked in the door from guiding a Catalina hunt and after wearing these Courtney boots for this hunt I can say without a doubt these are the absolute best hunting boots I’ve ever owned. If these things last as long as people say they do I cant imagine ever buying anything else for a general hunting boot. I am way impressed.

Mine are on the way! From an Australian distributor.
After investing 2 days of reading I found an Agent, Malcom Knott. Trading as Pimlico health
I don’t know anything of his business but he was helpful and has posted my Selous booots.
I hope they Are as good as everyone is saying

I put insoles in mine, as well.

I got wide boots, to ensure my toes weren't squished. But then needed some help in other areas. I also tend to wear mine with thicker, wool socks.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
