are FANTASTIC, and these are no different...just be wary of the sizing on this particular style. My husband normally wears a 9.5, with an average width, but he needed to exchange them for the 10 WIDE. This style is QUITE narrow, especially when they are new. If you have a narrow foot, buy the "average" width; if you have an average-width foot, buy the "wide"(and if you have a wide foot, I'd say try a different style.) The boot does stretch a bit after a week or so, but if you are going to use these for winter work, you'll need that space for an extra pair of socks
: these boots
are NOT insulated. (We knew this when we bought them. My husband's last pair of Chippewas WERE insulated, but when Chippewa
insulates something, boy do they insulate! His feet were so hot in the summer! He decided that it's easier for him to have cooler feet in the summer and add an extra pair of socks
in the winter. Lol!) Hubby says these boots
are VERY comfy, and the 2" heel is nice in case he steps on a nail. Note about Zappos exchange/return: They are very good about their returns, BUT the boots
can NOT have been worn outside or used at ALL! Make sure they are what you want BEFORE you wear them outside, because they must be "re-sale ready" in order for them to accept the return!
