Chippewa

Chippewa Logo
Since 1901, Chippewa has been creating footwear based on simple, fundamental rules. Most importantly, they use only the best materials, the best construction techniques and the most innovative technology. The result -- unquestionably the best boots around. That's what we mean when we say Chippewa Integrity.

Initially, Chippewa started with only logger boots in its product line. Constructed of double and triple leather midsoles and hand-plugged outsole spikes, the logger boots were designed to assist loggers as they rolled the logs down the rivers to the mills. Based on that state-of-the-art boot, Chippewa gained a reputation for quality and began expanding the product line to include more boot categories.

The past century has brought significant changes in the need for quality outdoor work and sport footwear. Chippewa Boots continues to add new products to its inventory to meet the needs of its loyal following. As part of the Justin Brands, Inc. family, quality and craftsmanship continue to be the leading guides in its development, just as it has been for the last 100 years

Rugged as the land they walk, Chippewa. Live the Spirit.

Boots are great I've had mine for 4 years now and steel is starting to show but over all boots are sturdy and comfortable to wear.

These boots are so good. They are my second pair of Chippewa boots, but this boot exceeds expectations in all ways. Comfort straight out, and the silhouette is sleek not bulky or clumsy. I get compliments on them frequently, and I love secretly love footwear jewelry. These boots have me obsessively watching the Chippewa range.

I purchased a 10.5 based on reviews stating that the sizes ran large. I should have ordered an 11, my regular size. The 10.5 fits a bit snugly for a pair of work/hiking boots. The style and construction are great! I think that these may take awhile to break in, but I expect that they will last a long time. I will update my review when the 11's arrive.

I like these boots alot. Perfect fit right out of box. Ordered my regular size. These boots are not heavyweight clunkers, light and comfortable and look great. Do be aware that this boot has a bit of a seuede finish. Products like mink oil an lexall will fix that however. Am very happy with purchase as i was getting very tired of tying laces.

The right boot has basically a hole in the toe instep and is significantly smaller than the left. The right boot causes a lot of pain in my foot. 5 stars on the left boot but the right boot is too painful to wear. I have tried everything to make the right boot wearable but it is not. Too bad it’s too late to return them but I wish I could. Half of these boots are very well made which is a shame.

Boots fit to size. Made of high quality materials. Break-in was very quick (recommend oiling boots once you determine they fit etc. to speed break-in and protect the leather). I spend up to10 hours per day on my feet on concrete, going up and down ladders, and climbing over things. These boots are comfortable, breathable, and very nimble. Far preferable to the monstrously large, clunky safety-toe shoes so common on the market.

I like the style, shape and overall feel of the boot. However, the Briar Pitstop colorway has a more weathered and distressed look than I wanted. On the part of the boot that flexes and creases when you walk, there was a distinctly orange and worn look. I wore the boots around my house for a whole day, and they’re reasonably comfortable. I just can’t get over the look issue. I’m returning them and trying a different color before I move on to other options. I also got a Bed Stu boot for comparison, and it looks a lot better next to this Chippewa offering.

These are my second pair of Chippewa Boots. My last ones lasted for years. I hope these will do the same. My only complaint is that the tongue on one shoe hasn't quite folded in right, so it takes so adjusting. But maybe that'll get sorted out in time.

Well constructed, good looking boot. A little stiff at first but broke in within a few days. Built on a narrower last so looks sleek for a work boot.

With medium weight socks my toes were hitting the top of the boot and would be touching the inside front if going downhill with these boots on. Odd shape for toe pocket that was unusually square.

I WANT to love Chippewa boots, but the quality is simply inconsistent. I've had to try and return multiple pairs over time. Never a consistent quality. I wear a size 13 sneaker, a 12 dress shoe. This time I ordered the Chippewa Service Boot (Crazy Horse) in size 12, but they were too big. I got an 11.5 which fit, BUT the right boot was very tight (not even walking, just on. and my right foot is slightly smaller than my left) and was putting pressure into the ball of my foot - the tongue/stitching appeared off-kilter to the left when compared to the left boot. Se the attached pic. Having to return them...again.

As advertised, order 1/2 size smaller and the boot will be snug on first wear but stretches out quickly to a perfect fit.

I’ve had a few pairs of steel toed boots before, and figured some discomfort was part of the deal. Not so! I also have some of the best made and most comfortable boots on the planet, costing 3-4 times what these run. These are close, for far less money, and oh yeah, they’ll keep your feet safe if you run a chainsaw into them.

I bought these for my husband to replace a very similar Chippewa boot from about 15 years ago. I wanted to post a photo of the old pair, but he had already thrown them out. They were still in very good shape except for the seam on the toe cap had started to split. These new ones don't have a seam there, so I expect he will get at least another 15 years out of these. The new ones have a lug sole while the old ones had a smooth sole, so that was a welcome improvement as well. Just the fact that they lasted so long, and fit so well, left us no choice but to buy the same boot again. They fit him perfectly with little break in time necessary. As long as they keep making them we will keep buying them. And hey, Made in USA is a real bonus!!!

Bulletproof and comfortable. Great boots. I’m picky, and get blisters easily, but these have been fantastic. I wear them for either working on trees or doing heavier work on my house (just resided one side of it and spent about three days on my garage roof) where I want lots of foot protection and grip. Nails would not go through soles, not that I tried to make them. And surprisingly comfortable and flexible/nimble. Easy to walk in and don’t feel like you’re wearing ski boots. Can drive my small manual transmission car without having to put on smaller shoes. I bought size 10 and usually wear a 10.5, and it was the right call. The leather on these eases up nicely.

I bought two pairs in medium width, one a half-size larger, with the thought of returning the one that did not fit. The smaller of the two was ok in length, but was still too wide for me at the heel, with the result being my heel sliding up and down in the boot, even with heavy socks. Not good. Had to return both pairs. A shame. They're nice boots, even though mine were Chinese-made (!).

I usually am a 'D' regular width in shoes and boots but these were rather on the tight side at the foot end and too loose in the heel, length seemed fine even with thick socks. But I am slender at 6' so was going to try the wide/E but assumed too much heel there too/maybe all cowboy boots are too.

I wanted to like this pair of boots, however the tongue is not designed to fit the contour of the anterior of my ankle, causing the stiff leather between ankle and shoelace knot to fold. Quite uncomfortable. This may sort itself out over time and I do like the rest of the fit and the build quality. However, there are so many other good shoes, at lower prices, from which to choose, that I guess I'll vote no on this pair.
