Actually I ordered them by mistake and thought I could cancel the order in time to buy the composite toe version in stead. Need to really pay attention to the descriptions of the same style boot. The rubber toe version is a great boot for the outdoors person,very well constructive ,you get what you pay for in quality,but my job requires steel toe or composite. I wear them on my days off. Since I also got the composite toe for work and unable to cancel the rubber toe in time...even then ,they still feel the same and still protect your feet in the weather environments and still have a shoe that keeps you dry and can depend on.
I use these for work,for trucking. I needed a shoe that could withstand daily abuse,but also doesn't wear out quickly,and still comforts your day. I like the looks and how the toes and heels are protected. The traction is excellent in almost all surfaces. Waterproof, insulated ..ect.ect. very happy about this boot and I would recommend this boot to anyone. Spendy ? Well this is a industrial quality boot and your feet will thank you.
I would have kept these, but I decided that I don't need a boot that's this heavy and warm. These are slightly clunkier than I had hoped and I realized that I probably don't need the insulation cause I won't be trecking through the snow. I originally thought that I'd need super warm boots to survive the winter here in Chicago (just moved here from California), but have since decided that a more general purpose boot would suit me better--I'll just wear warms socks during the winter.
If you are going to be spending a lot of time outdoors in the snow, then these would be great. They're pretty good looking for snow boots and the construction and materials is super high quality.
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®.
