The leather seemed too thin, afraid it may tear easily. Also the buckles were flimsy and light. These were not rugged boots like my chippewa loggers that were like a pair of tanks. Needless to say I returned them and ordered a pair of loggers that were on sale of a different brand, I hope their like my Chipps.
First Online Shoes are the Best. I will wear these Boots all the time. Very Well made and fit Perfict. No break-in needed. Made with quality products. Stitching is Perfict. Thick leather. The Sole is Heavy Duty. Will last a Very Long Time. I recommend this boot.
I've always had problems with my feet and was advised long ago to only wear shoes with steel shanks in order to get the best arch strength in a boot. These have a steel shank and also nice heel cushioning. My only complaint is the leather upper is quite stiff. This will relax with time but it does decrease comfort initially.
Since 1901, Chippewa has been creating footwear based on simple, fundamental rules. 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 it means when they 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.
