Contrary to another reviewer's comment, the Chippewa 73020 boot is not insulated. It has a brushed ruby Nylex lining, which is simply a lining - not insulation.

Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. This Chippewa boot is pricey, but is a superior product. It felt comfortable straight out of the box. I had them shipped to my office, and when they arrived, I put them on and wore them the entire day comfortably. Amazing for a high top, steel toe work boot! Good sole stiffness and ankle support. I look forward to many years of use from these boots, yard work, mowing grass, home repairs. Highly recommended.

Wow! Was shocked that I ordered these boots last night, and this morning they are here! Loved it! But, they are too small so I need to get my hubby a bigger size.

I purchased this exact boot back in 2005 for my husband. He worked in the automotive industry for 3 years in this boot, then in aviation for another 2 years! He loves these boots, and we are purchasing another pair. They do measure a 1/2 size smaller, so get the next size up than you normally would get! Great product!

I am very happy with this boot. They are comfortable straight out of the box and need very little break in time. They are slightly more narrow than a normal boot so beware if you have a wide foot but it was not a problem for me. Just one serious warning: They are not waterproof and your feet may get damp in wet weather or deep snow!

Looks good, comfortable but more narrow than expected. Chippewa's were made in America, but this is from China.

I love the way these boots look but they are not that comfortable for walking or standing for too long. The inside heel area feels hard on your feet, not enough cushion on heel.

This is insulated, which I didn't notice in the description. I ordered the extra wide and it was still too narrow in the (steel) toe.

These boots are of high quality, and possibly much larger than they may seem in the picture. The heel is very high, as with many logger boots, and will likely add 2" to your height, which can be strange. The boots are very well-crafted and beautiful.

I have worn Chippewa boots for over 6 years. I broke both my feet in a fall so I have to wear above the ankle footwear. I had been searching for quite a while to find some boots that would keep mt feet supported and comfortable, hard to find both. I always bought boots at stores until someone said try Zappos and I did - great move. I always check to see when they have a sale on these boots, what a savings. When I place my order it arrives the next day - unbelievable. I don't have to leave my home or spend money on gas. The best part is return them no problem. I have never sent anything back. Thanks Zappos for great buys and customer service!

These are a great rugged shoe. I got them for my husband and he said that the only part that needed a little breaking in was around the ankle. He said the arch support is good and if your foot is a regular width they should not be tight - if your foot is wider, then you might need a half size bigger. He has had this shoe before and it lasted three years with rugged use. Great price and a great boot! Will purchase again in the future.

Rapid delivery of the item. Well made boot. Fairly comfortable. Chippewa boots run very narrow so I ordered an E width rather than my normal D width.

Men's size 7 a little big for women's 7.5 but very comfortable! My first pair of Chippewas lasted 15 years of hard wear.

This is my first steel toe boot I have every bought. I work at a year around residential camp for youth. These boots are great the huge sole make easy work of mud and any terrain that you got. Not to mention they clean up nice when u have to go into public (i.e. offices, restaurants, etc). The one down side to this boot is they take a while to break in two half weeks for me.

Great boot. I have been buying steel toe boots for over 35 years (I'm an exploration geologist) and these are the best I have had. I have a wide foot and the E width fit very well. I also wear heavy socks and got 1/2 size larger due to that. Again, they work great. They took a few days to break in for rough terrain but now they fully support my ankles and feet doing the toughest duty. They were on sale so I bought them based on reviews since I have never had this brand and I'm glad I went with them.

Bought these boots a month or so ago for work. I walk a lot on uneven terrain and in wet grass, so I needed something that would hold up to stress and that would be waterproof. So far these boots have delivered. I've worn them everyday at work and they've held up very well. They were comfortable even the first time I put them on and have only gotten better since they've been broken in. I have yet to test them in a very wet environment, but so far my feet have stayed dry. 10/10 would buy again.

I used to be strictly Red Wings until they started making them in China. If I was going to wear a non USA made boot them why pay the Red Wing price, right? Shopped around and found these. Softest and thickest leather of all I saw. The sole, the interior, the grommets, and even the dang laces are of higher quality that the Red Wings from back when they were from the USA. Best part is these were half the price of the Red Wing lineman boots I had previously used. They were so surprisingly good that I bought a second set 5 days later to hold back in reserve since they were on sale. Note: Order half size bigger than you ordinarily wear and get the wide version. None better, you will see.

I recently purchased these boots an fell in love with them as soon as I put them on. The insole was superior to any boot I have owned. All of my friends wear chips and highly recommend them. I decided to try them out and will not go back to my old boots. The shipping options were amazing. I really liked the tracking options with UPS. When they arrived I wasn't able to answer the door but the tracking told me that my boots were delivered and on the porch.

Love the boots and the service. On these boot they run about a 1/2 size smaller than the stated size. I wear a 8 and order a 8 1/2 and they fit perfect.

I typically wear an 8.5 (Adidas, vans). But this boot I need a 9. And you typically wear thicker socks. The boot is nice, not particularly comfortable (sole is cheap) and I'd say it's not worth the price. At best less. What I don't get is why I can't rate these "Chippewa American Handcrafted GQ Tan Rodeo Boot", even thought I sent them back (so I'll write it here). I bought a pair at the same time in size 9. It was huge! So I sent them back for a size 8. Huge! Watch out for those ones. Basically I need a size 7 in them but I am so disappointed with having to return them twice that I am over them. Especially at that cost.

Very displeased with this boot. Supposedly Chippewas are made in America. I recieved the boots today and the inner tongue says made overseas. Not paying this price for an overseas knock-off.
