Chippewa

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.

More volume than most shoes. Key tip: Danner’s boot creme liberally applied to soften the leather and wear old socks as the excess grease will transfer back to the sock. Comfortable sole, but slippery

Fit does appear to run a little large compared to most shoes and I followed the advice of a lot of reviews and ordered a half size smaller and they fit well. Will take a little time to break in but so far so good. I got the cordovan and be aware that it’s pretty red right out of the box, not as deep a color as say a penny loafer but I believe as it develops some character and wear it will look fantastic. Still that’s why I took off one star on style. Fit and finish were very good, no noticeable issues or any kind. Can’t wait to get them fully broken in.

I am a size 9 and occasionally a 9.5, but am wearing an 8.5 in these boots with an insole and a moderately thick (think casual athletic) sock. Break in period is a few days--still going through it, but the boots are more comfortable by the day. Overall: loving them and think I'll have them for a long long while.

Right out of the box these boots felt great - I expect them to become even better once fully broken in! Good fit, perfect toe room and noticeable arch support. I needed a basic, uninsulated boot and these totally meet my needs - unfortunately, it appears this specific model is no longer being made - or was replaced by the Cibola lace boot (as determined from the Chippewa boots website). I will look to this manufacturer for future footwear needs!

After reading the reviews I ordered 1/2 size smaller and they fit perfect. Had major surgery on both ankles and need a lot of support. I’ve owned a lot of different boots but these are without a doubt the best boots I’ve ever purchased. 5 STARS.

I first tried a 1/2 size smaller than I normally wear and the boots were still way too big. I went to a full size smaller and these fit much better. I also first tried a wide boot as some of the other reviews had said they did and that was also large. Settled on a full size smaller and normal width, fit is right on. Can't say enough about customer service. They really worked with me to resolve the issues.

These boots are so good. They are my second pair of Chippewa boots, but this boot exceeds expectations in all ways. Comfort straight out, and the silhouette is sleek not bulky or clumsy. I get compliments on them frequently, and I love secretly love footwear jewelry. These boots have me obsessively watching the Chippewa range.

I purchased a 10.5 based on reviews stating that the sizes ran large. I should have ordered an 11, my regular size. The 10.5 fits a bit snugly for a pair of work/hiking boots. The style and construction are great! I think that these may take awhile to break in, but I expect that they will last a long time. I will update my review when the 11's arrive.

I like these boots alot. Perfect fit right out of box. Ordered my regular size. These boots are not heavyweight clunkers, light and comfortable and look great. Do be aware that this boot has a bit of a seuede finish. Products like mink oil an lexall will fix that however. Am very happy with purchase as i was getting very tired of tying laces.

The right boot has basically a hole in the toe instep and is significantly smaller than the left. The right boot causes a lot of pain in my foot. 5 stars on the left boot but the right boot is too painful to wear. I have tried everything to make the right boot wearable but it is not. Too bad it’s too late to return them but I wish I could. Half of these boots are very well made which is a shame.

Boots fit to size. Made of high quality materials. Break-in was very quick (recommend oiling boots once you determine they fit etc. to speed break-in and protect the leather). I spend up to10 hours per day on my feet on concrete, going up and down ladders, and climbing over things. These boots are comfortable, breathable, and very nimble. Far preferable to the monstrously large, clunky safety-toe shoes so common on the market.

I like the style, shape and overall feel of the boot. However, the Briar Pitstop colorway has a more weathered and distressed look than I wanted. On the part of the boot that flexes and creases when you walk, there was a distinctly orange and worn look. I wore the boots around my house for a whole day, and they’re reasonably comfortable. I just can’t get over the look issue. I’m returning them and trying a different color before I move on to other options. I also got a Bed Stu boot for comparison, and it looks a lot better next to this Chippewa offering.

These are my second pair of Chippewa Boots. My last ones lasted for years. I hope these will do the same. My only complaint is that the tongue on one shoe hasn't quite folded in right, so it takes so adjusting. But maybe that'll get sorted out in time.

With medium weight socks my toes were hitting the top of the boot and would be touching the inside front if going downhill with these boots on. Odd shape for toe pocket that was unusually square.

I WANT to love Chippewa boots, but the quality is simply inconsistent. I've had to try and return multiple pairs over time. Never a consistent quality. I wear a size 13 sneaker, a 12 dress shoe. This time I ordered the Chippewa Service Boot (Crazy Horse) in size 12, but they were too big. I got an 11.5 which fit, BUT the right boot was very tight (not even walking, just on. and my right foot is slightly smaller than my left) and was putting pressure into the ball of my foot - the tongue/stitching appeared off-kilter to the left when compared to the left boot. Se the attached pic. Having to return them...again.
