20065 6-Inch Lace Up Review:
Durable and comfortable work boot without being overly bulky. The Vibram sole is excellent in both comfort, support and slip resistance.
Comfortable after 2 weeks.
25220 Chippewa Country 6-inch Waterproof Review:
Took 2 weeks to break in. The tongue is unnecessarily too big and sticks up too muck keeping my pants legs bunched up.
Very Nice boot - but Made in China
L73045 8 Inch Ins Logger Review:
One of the primary reasons I purchased this boot was the comment on the website at the time of my purchase that these boots were made in the U.S.A. Unfortunately when the boots arrived, they said "Made in China". I needed the boots sooner than later so I kept them. I contacted customer service at onlineshoes.com and was told they would get back to me but they never did. Regardless of all of this, I did keep the boots and I am happy with them although a boot made in China should not cost this much. I've worn the boots for over 25 miles now. I use these boots for mowing. I mow several acres with a push mower up and down hills. Usually clock in about 3 or 4 miles each time I mow. My first wearing was 30 minutes - about 0.5 mile to break them in. When I first put these boots on there was a hot spot on my right ankle. I was going to pad that spot before wearing them but thought I'd see how they felt walking up and down hills. I found walking on the hills relieved the hot spot so did not pad my foot. After 22 miles the hot spot no longer existed. I usually wear a size 8 Medium or Wide depending on the shoe/boot. I wanted to wear a thicker sock with these boots so I purchased an 8 Wide and I am glad I did. They fit me perfectly. I especially like the profile and shape of the toe box. There is enough room in these boots for me to wiggle my toes while wearing thick boot socks. These boots provide enough arch and ankle support and are very well balanced making walking the hills very easy. The traction is exceptional. I have not worn these boots in the winter, I cannot say how warm they are but they have kept my feet dry in the wet grass. I do wish the laces were longer. They are 63" in length. I will be replacing these with longer laces. I would recommend these boots to someone that did not mind buying imported boots.
i would buy this boot again one with size smaller

Almost perfect!
L73045 8 Inch Ins Logger Review:
I broke my foot and missed 6 weeks of work. To return, I had to show my doc footwear that would protect my injury, but that I could still work in (a nurse on my feet running and gunning all day). He was impressed with this boot and said it would be just fine. I also got back on my motorcycle much quicker because of it as well! The only complaint I have...one of the "pleats" that are on each side of the tongue that provide the water protection presses very uncomfortably on one ankle bone. I cut a very thin, dense can coozie and made a little patch to put in place under my sock. I may go ahead and sacrifice the full waterproof design and cut the pleat in order to flatten it. My ankles give me trouble in lots of shoe designs, so this may be a very isolated incident. The boots are very much worth trying, despite this!

About Chippewa

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.

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