Chippewa Logo
Since 1901, Chippewa has been creating footwear based on simple, fundamental rules. Most importantly, 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 we mean when we 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.

I bought these for my husband over a year ago and they still look great. They are very well made, sturdy and heavy duty. They are wearing very well also, keeping a good color and not looking ragged at all. They are primarily weekend wear but do get a work out. I can tell these will last many years. For someone that works in construction or similar, they would be a great choice. I highly recommend!

These boots look nice and felt great. But they didn't last as long as I thought they would. I took good care of them, but the shoe separated from the sole. Annoying. Maybe that's common?

No matter what you use them for they will be up to the task. Toughest boots I have ever owned. Best warranty in the business and when they are old and worn out you can send them to Chippewa to have them “rebuilt” to like new conditions.

I bought these in 9.5 and they fit perfect. I wear size 11 in new balance and nike sneakers. These boots are great and much easier to walk in then I thought they would be. These are quality boots for sure.

I have been buying these boots for a few years now and absolutely love them... then they stopped making them for awhile and the ones I did buy from another company were nowhere near as comfortable as these! Yes, unlike the former pairs, they do need to be broken in and the lugs on bottom are deeper than the old, which in my profession as electrician don’t really need, but all in all they fit true to size... would like to see the insulated water-proof comp toe brought back.

I wear size 8 in tennis shoes and the size 7 fit me perfectly. I did not add an insert to the boot. The heel is already beginning to separate. If you pull on it, you can see the separation I'd say about 2% of the surface area has detached, but the remainder seems very strongly holding on - this was mentioned in many other reviews on this site and Amazon also but I figure if and when it falls off it will be an easy fix. I like that the boot has lace holes all the way up - no lace hooks at all. The boot looks very good and smells amazing. It fits amazingly right out of the box. Would be a 5 star if the heel were not detaching.

Good fit out of the box, took a few days of wear to break in proper but totally comfortable now. I gave them my usual boot prep -- heat in a warm oven for 10 min or so, apply a liberal coat of Huberd's Shoe Grease, back in the oven for another 10 or so then rub down with an old t-shirt. Then I give them a weekly coat of leather conditioner. This treatment results in the boots being practically waterproof, and it makes the upper supple. You can't wade in a lake for 30 minutes, but walking in 5-6 inches of water for a couple minutes will not get your feet wet. I work on a concrete floor all day now, and my feet are usually OK after 9 or 10 hours. I'm planning to add an insole for a bit more padding, but I'm not unhappy with the comfort. If I were working outside they'd be completely OK. You can find cheaper boots, but I'm happy these are US made and can be resoled. If I'm not still wearing these in 10 years I'll be surprised.

I loved these boots the moment I first tried them on - great style, material and workmanship - and being made in the USA is a huge plus. I had noticed a few reviewers saying they fit big, and to size down one size. I normally wear a US size 10, and I always put an arch supports in my boots. Knowing this would take up some of any extra room there may be, I went with the size 10 and they fit perfectly. As always, Zappos provided super fast shipping and delivery - much appreciated!

Size description seems accurate. Fit my narrow heel/wide forefoot well. Well constructed work boots - and I’ve worn a lot of work boots over the years. Great support. Seem to be breaking in easily despite the stout leather they are made of.

I've worn them all, Wolverine,Red Wing,Duluth Trading..these were perfect from the start. Only had them 2 weeks so longevity is a ?, but I have Chippewa engineer boots that have held up well. I'm buying another pair immediately before they are discontinued. No better review than that.

Couldn't be happier, reasonability priced, a fantastic style, and quite comfortable. My only recommendation for anyone that's interested is to try at least a half size smaller than you normally would, maybe even a full size smaller. They do seem to run a bit large.

Looks rough and mean. Size is good. Little Toebed rubbing when breaking in. Nothing serious. Only part I didn’t like and took a star off it says might contain cancer causing materials. Probably lead and if u like these shoes you’re probably already touching lead lol.

When reviews say they were great right out of the box, and I think that's BS, because it never happened to me. Until now. Great boots, fit perfectly (12EE) and they look great. Wore them 8 hours on the first day. Can also wear them with shorts in summer. Buy them.

Boots run about a half size large. I typically wear size 9 and 8.5 worked well. Out of the box they felt good and I could tell that with some leather softener, the break in period would be minimal. Arch support was decent compared to my 10 year old Dr Marten's. All that being said, I am returning the Crazy Horse color as it is not the brown shown on this web site. The left shoe is tan renegade, the right shoe is crazy horse.

I have to echo other feedback about lacking quality control . The boots I received had a cut in the upper part of the sole (see pic) and the leather stain was so thin in areas that they appeared gray.

Wow! What a quality boot. It fit perfectly right out of the box. They are a little bit heavy but you get used to it very quickly. The boot is built solidly like a tank. It's worth the investment to keep your feet safe while you are doing your business. Congratulations to Chippewa and Zappos.

Great pair of Chippewas! I own a few pairs of the Service Boots, but wanted something that I could wear specifically in the snow and winter weather. These fit the bill. More of a work boot than the Service Boots as expected, but still sharp.

These boots are very comfortable from day 1. I’m usually on my feet 10 to 12 hours daily and by the end of day my feet don’t ache. These are lightweight yet offer the safety protection I need. I’m a fan thus far and most likely will stick with this brand next time around.

Great boots, old-school quality. They take forever to break in and run about a full size larger than normal shoes. I normally wear an 8.5, with these I had to buy a 7.5.

These are my second pair of Chippeaw boots. These are very well made boots, nice quality leather and stitching. I love the first pair I have for over two years now and I know I will love this pair the same! I took all the advice of the other reviews on here, and ordered a half size smaller and they fit perfect! I always wear a 10 1/2. I ordered a 10 and they are a perfect fit! I definitely recommend these boots and feel confident they will last years to come!

I looked far and wide for a pair of REAL LEATHER Work SHOES for under $200 that were not "waterproof'. Seems nearly all the shoes in this class are now-a-days lined with some synthetic material designed to make them waterproof but in reality trap sweat and water inside causing the lining to breakdown before the shoe wears out. Kind of like wearing a shoe with a plastic bag as a liner. At least that's what it feels like to me. Hard to beat a shoe made with a decent grade of leather like these and no weird lining inside. There is however what appears to be a calf skin lining in the heel and toe areas right where its needed. These shoes seem altogether a decent value for the money. I have only worn them for two days but after standing and working in them all day I hardly even thought of my feet all day. That's a good thing. I would have preferred a more shiny brown leather than the "chocolate" colored leather which has a rather dull finish to it but after applying some leather conditioner they look good. I did notice some slight chafing up around the ankle collar but it went away after wearing them a few hours and adjusting the lacing. Still need some breaking in before I head out on any long treks but I'd feel confident that these will hold up and provide the traction, support and comfort needed for walking in rough terrain. The vibram soles are perfect for my use and the moderately sharp heel allows one to dig into the ground just enough to ensure resistance to slipping when walking down hill on snow or muddy ground.
