Lisbon II - Olive Chromexcel


Introducing the Lisbon II Service boot in Olive Chromexcel from Horween. To provide excellent traction and durability, we've paired this boot with the #1220 Supergrip Full Sole from Dr. Sole.     

Chromexcel is created using a combination tanned process, which gives it a rich, natural color and helps it to develop a unique patina over time. It is then hot-stuffed with a blend of oils, waxes, and greases, which helps to enhance its durability, water resistance, and overall aesthetic appeal. 

Our sizing range has been expanded to include sizes 7-14 D, E, and EE. For sizing guidance, please refer to our sizing chart found here

Each boot is crafted from authentic leather, which may exhibit minor scratches, blemishes, and non-uniform coloring. These are inherent traits of the natural material and its finishing.

Crushed It!

This is my 3rd pair of Caswells. I previously purchased the Lisbon in caramel oiled shoulder + a pair in grizzly cattail. Both pairs are really just fabulous and even better for the price. The leathers are excellent selections from top quality tanneries, and the build and design quality are worthy matches.

As great as those other boots are, I think the Lisbon II in olive Chromexcel is my favorite. Chromexcel is a classic, super solid tannage. it’s certainly easy to find more exotic leathers and tannages, but if you want a beautiful, thick leather that will hold up for years and years, you can’t beat Chromexcel. And I think olive just might be the best color in CXL, IMHO. It’s just gorgeous. And, again, the Caswell build and design are a worthy match for a phenomenal leather. (That’s not hype, by the way. I’ve got horsebutt boots, kudu boots, kangaroo boots, veg tanned, re-veg tanned, etc., etc. Anyone with a decent sized boot collection will have a dozen combinations of leathers and tannages. CXL has been around forever and there’s a reason for that. It’s hard to beat.)

One thing I love about the Caswells is that they’re fully lined. Most of my CXL work boots and heritage boots are unlined. CXL often uses relatively heavy hides and, I guess, the idea is that they don’t need to be lined for extra heft or support. The full lining used by Caswell gives the uppers a super premium feel. Very thick + the added comfort of a nice calfskin lining.

In another review, I think I compared my Caswells to the three or four pairs of Vibergs I own. The Vibergs are definitely great boots but its hard to justify the price when Caswell keeps putting out offerings like the Lisbon II in olive CXL.

The wait was sure worth it for these GMTO olive Chromexcel Lisbon II boots! I was a CXL fan already, and became enthralled with photos of the Lisbon II in olive. They're perfect for fall with shades of green and brown and a hint of yellow.

The Wayne last fits my feet nicely - they're super comfortable! I went half a size down from TTS for my first Caswell boots (Lisbon in black CXL). They fit perfectly with dress socks. I went TTS for these, allowing a bit more room for thicker socks.

I opted for the Ridgeway sole on these, because I liked them so much on my first pair.

I continue to be a huge Kevin/Caswell fan! Thanks for all you do to produce these amazing, functional works of art for us boot-lovers.

Amazing boots!!

Olive chromexcel is a beautiful color! The boots fits perfectly. I was afraid about the fitting ( my first boots from Caswell) because it is not easy to find the correct fitting between boot makers. The construction and materials are first quality. I’m pretty sure it won’t be my last pair of boots.
