These are awesome boots. I researched several companies and for the value and craftsmanship the Chippewas engineer boot cannot be beat. I wear a 12 medium shoe and the boots were true to size. They are a little snug around the toes but I used the 50:50 alcohol to water and sprayed them each time I wore them. They broke in about three days of wearing them around the house. Now they are the most comfortable boots that I own.

Well, I've had these boots 8 years. If they were going to break in, they would have by now. On my motorcycle, they feel great. Walking from my bike to the house or inside the c-store, no problem. But, I have twice now made the mistake of wearing these to Bike Week and ANY walking around of ANY distance absolutely kills my feet and gives me blisters. I had to switch to tennis shoes just for my feet to heal. They look like cool motorcycle boots, but are absolutely the most uncomfortable things I have ever put on my feet for walking around bar none. Great for sitting, horrible for walking.

These boots are great. They took no time at all to break in (and I don't often wear boots). They do not hurt my feet at all and feel true to size. I treated them with a leather treatment that is wax-based, and they shined right up again. My only complaint is that, like another user said, the buckles look like something that'd be on a little girl's watch.

First off, I would like to say that I have read most of the comments on this boot, and you have to understand that this is a true all American classic. The boot is narrow, yes, but that is what gives it that classic look that hugs to your feet. To change any of it would take away from that incredible look and style that only Chippewa designed so long ago. Anyway, I love these boots, but I have to also say that I am very disappointed as to why they no longer have leather heels and yet they raise pricing. I'm also not happy with the masculine classic buckles that were replaced by what looks to me like buckles from a little girl's wrist watch.

Do not purchase these without having your feet measured. These are not sized like your average athletic foot wear. I typically wear a 10.5 in a running shoe but these are true to your actual foot size.

American made!! High quality materials and good craftsmanship. These boots are comfortable. I wore the new boots two full work days, and my feet felt great. Impressive for a boot of this type. The boots are a struggle to get on and off which will get easier as the boot is worn more.
