9" Waterproof Insulated Super Logger Posted: 6/27/15
Reviewer: Chris K. from Ohio
Overall: Rated:5 stars! Comfort: Rated:5 stars! Style: Rated:5 stars!

I have the steel toe non insulated super loggers model #25407. This style is the 25405 if I remember right. I just purchased my 2nd pair. All I can say are these boots are amazing. My first pair lasted two years of hard use. Only reason I replaced them is the steel toe was showing and was allowing water and snow to get inside my boot. Otherwise I'd still have them. Excellent build quality and superior comfort. I can't recommend these boots enough. The only drawback I have is the chipatex waterproof liner is a little hotter to wear than say an e-vent brand or Gore-Tex but shares the same reliable performance of those brands. Also these boots are heavy, heavier than some other loggers I've had in the past due to the thickness of the leather and also the fact the sole and heel of these boots are taller than many other loggers by about 1/2-3/4". They do take a little getting used to. But again I can't recommend them enough. And don't be scared away by the initial stiffness. Once they break in it will be the best logger boot you will ever own, unless you go all out and buy a pair of custom Wesco's.

Overall I like the look and feel of these boots. However, I don't care for the quality of the leather very much. For the price, it seems the quality is lower than expected. The leather is fairly thin and stiff when new.

Better than Docs, cheaper than Red Wings, made in the USA. The boots I received had scuffs on the side and dirt on the bottom (from someone else wearing them, probably). They also were missing the American flag pendant, and were seemingly the wrong color (though the correct model of boot as verified by the markings on the tongue). More of a creamy brown than the waxy dark brown in the product photo. Zappos also charges $25 more than Amazon, which is the same company. Why? No idea. Contacted Zappos customer service and they basically told me "yes, we charge more" and "don't know / that's impossible" about the missing pendant, dirt and wrong color. No explanation, no apology, no offer to keep me a happy customer. Basically "we already have your money." Totally happy with the boots, but pretty "meh" about Zappos. Now I remember why I never order shoes from this place.

Always wore New Balance but the 978 didn't fit like the 977, so I was hesitant to try the new 1569. I thought I'd try this Chippewa boot, one of the few choices in a 13 4E. Despite being imported (what isn't anymore) they seem like a good boot and are comfortable enough. I haven't worn them on a rigorous hike yet so time will tell how they feel and wear.

The leather around the toes on one of the boots started tearing falling apart after only a couple of weeks. I was actually able to cut the leather with my finger nail. But I patched the hole in the toe with some jb weld and continued to ware them and all was good for about 4 months now the leather is separating from the bottom sole along the side on both boots. I have never had a pair of work boots ware out so fast.

I was looking for a good riding boot to wear with jeans. A sturdy boot is minimum safety for me if I don't like to wear a full Motorcycle boot. I tried a lot of different brands and styles. I really like Red Wing Shoes but the boots did not fit me. This boot feels good right out of the box. I usually wear size 12 with superfeet insoles on all my shoes and it works well with this boot. To test I ordered 11 1/2 wide and 12 regular to try. The size 12 fits me great in the toe box I could not see a difference in the wide version and the 11 1/2 may even be a bit longer. This boot is well made and the material is nice and thick. Worth the money, actually reasonably priced for that type of boot. I wore it all day straight out of the box.

I loved these boots but when they arrived they had a tag on them stating that they had chemicals in them known to cause cancer... Plenty of boots out there without cancer causing chemicals. No thank you. I only wish they gave me the warning before I brought them into my house and wasted the fuel to get them here and back. :( Chippewa use natural tanning agents so I can wear your boots and you can have less impact on the environment!

This is a very good looking American made boot. So much footwear is Chinese or Mexican made that I love finding US products. It runs a bit long so I ordered a half size shorter for a good fit. The boot is surprisingly lightweight making it well suited to long days walking. I have previously owned their engineers boot before and while they are tough and long wearing, they are much heavier.

First off these are beautiful shoes with great leather, stitching and hardware. BUT the stiffness in the heel backing feels like a blister waiting to happen (not a millimeter of give). Add onto that that the laces need to be cinched up like a fat girl in a corset to avoid heel slip (seriously, the heel has the same waxy smooth leather INSIDE the heel bed but nowhere else inside). Who needs a shoe horn when you have one built I guess... Everything about actually wearing this boot rubs me the wrong way, literally.

The Chippewa (55160? 55161? style but before the "comp toe") boots were the best I have ever worn. They lasted three years in a brutal sand-casting foundry environment walking over steel, gravel, rough concrete, hot sand, oil, grease, water, etc., and even then the soles did not wear through. Then I tried to order another pair and alas, the "comp toe" was instituted and gone were the shoes that fit and felt great. I can't say enough bad about the "comp toe": The boot may still be true to size, but the "comp toe" apparently comes in one narrow skin-shredding toe-rubbing unyielding size. I have tried several sizes through Zappos, but alas, Chippewa is ruined until that miserable "comp toe" is removed. I wear a 9.5 5E although I managed to get by with the 3E from Chippewa without discomfort. Chippewa is far superior to Propet in durability and quality of the seal between the sole and the leather upper (Propet starts coming apart within a few months of squatting and the Propet sole only lasts about 10 months before the sole wears through). Please remove the miserable "comp toe" from the best boot made! At least give us a choice, there are still some of us who tell OSHA to go to hell where they belong. Sincerely, David Parker

This is the second pair of the same shoe that I've ordered. They're holding up extremely well, fit perfectly, and are very comfortable. I walk 4 to 5 miles per day in them. Zapped delivery was extremely quick. Will order from Zappos again.

I have had this boot for about 5 weeks, and there appears to be delamination from the welt and the sole, which to me even for a cheap shoe would be unacceptable, I've read about these types of problems with Vibram soles before but was not expecting it to still be happening, will be contacting Zappos shortly to see how to resolve this, I expect most shoes, specially work boots to perform for at least 6 months, this is does not lend Chippewa a good name. Will look at other brands in the future.

As soon as the boots arrived I tried them on with excitement. They fit pretty well, I ordered a half size up and wide and there were no issues. Went I went to the remove the tag I noticed a warning label "Warning, this product contains materials known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity". After reading the warning I packed up the boots and washed my hands. The boots are made in China and are toxic! Don't buy them. Shame on Chippewa for producing such a cheap product! I am returning them today. I am very disappointed...

Great boots, just a little big initially. Sized about 1/2 size bigger than my other Chippewa boots I've owned for several years. Returned first purchase of size 12 and purchased size 11 1/2.

This Homestead Boot is fantastic. I originally chose the Red Wing Iron Rangers due to their popularity and reputation, but I found the width to be terribly narrow--my foot is anything but wide. The IRs are offered in a 2E width, but I opted to have a shot at the Chippewas and I'm glad I did! These are exactly what I wanted: hand crafted, made in USA, classic, timeless, resole/heel-able. If this silhouette and description is what you are looking for in a boot you will be well served by these.

I bought these boots because I needed a steel toe for my workplace activities. I am super pleased! The leather uppers look great, and the sole won't pick up mud when I'm outside. I first ordered the 10.5, but returned it for the 10. I wish it was a bit wider, if so I may be able to use the 9.5. I am still breaking them in by wearing them every other day, but it's going great. They are a bit heavy, but they are a lot of boot. I had some Finnish shoe grease I put on them and they darkened slightly and look even better. These aren't make pretend boots, I highly recommend them!

Best boots ever! I took the advice of earlier reviews and ordered them smaller than what I'd usually wear. I wear a 11.5 D in everything and ordered these in 10.5 EE and they fit perfectly. There was no break in time for me at all. Solid construction throughout the boot and with a heavy sock I can wear them all day without any discomforts at all. I'd absolutely order more from Chippewa and am deciding what pair(s) I want. They are absolutely expensive, but these are going to last me for years.

I have three different pairs of Chippewa boots.The original pair needs to be resoled after four years of almost daily wear. Well worth the money.

By far the most comfortable shoes I own. They have great arch support and a comfortable insole so you can walk/stand/work for long periods in them without your feet hurting. They are surprisingly light weight while still feeling strong and durable. They have pretty good traction. I wore them out in the ice/snow and didn't have any problems with slipping. They take a few wears to break in. I usually wear a 10 and sometimes a 10.5. I ordered 9.5 in these and they fit just right.

Just got these boots a few days ago. First of all they are much more stunning in real life compared to the photos. Excellent craftsmanship. They look and feel tough as nails. I own a couple different pairs of Chippewas and mostly they run true to size. These though I'd say run half a size larger. I usually wear a 10.5, but based on other reviews of other Chippewas, I bought a 10 in other boots and came to find out they were indeed too small after a lot of wear...so I did move up to 10.5 and found that was much more comfortable. With these boots, I wore the 10.5 round the house and it really felt like it was a bit of a clown shoe because the end was much longer and I felt like I was going to trip...so I ordered the 10 and those are a better fit. Chippewas are tough and reliable. I use them to work outside quite a bit. They feel very comfortable after the break in period, but then most boots do require that. I wear a light or medium weight Smartwool sock or thick Dickies socks and those really help with padding and support. Whatever sock you will wear most with your boots is what you should wear when you try it on. Stick with USA made boots! There are several brands out there like Chippewa that make quality, reliable boots as well.
