    I meant to buy another pair of my favorite Carolina boots only to discover that model is no longer being made. The Carolina boot that replaced it is now made in China. I have nothing against products made in other countries per se, however, I have been very disappointed in the sizing of almost every pair of shoes/boots I have ever bought that was made in China. I wear a US size 11EE as measured numerous times over the years in numerous shoe stores. Unfortunately, this often translated into Chinese-made shoes and boots in sizes up to 12 EEEEE (one brand of well-known boots I tried in size 13 EW was too small for my size 11 foot).

    After discovering the Carolina boots were no longer available, I intended to go by the Red Wing store but looked at their prices and backed off. Red Wings are good shoes but Red Wing really likes them a lot. It was time to try something different. I was happy to find out that Chippewa still makes their products in the USA and continues to maintain a good reputation at a reasonable price. I had never owned any Chippewa boots before but I went ahead and ordered my usual 11EE from Amazon.

    The boots fit well. At first, they felt a little loose. I put on some thicker socks and tightened the lacing. New leather boots always need time to conform to your feet and some heel slipping is pretty much normal until the soles flex a bit. After a couple of hours wear, they began to feel really good. As the leather stretches and molds, it is easier to tighten the laces and the looseness is gone. They feel good and the rounded toes offer plenty of "wiggle room". In other words, they fit true-to-size for my feet.

    They appear to be well made. While the label says "Handcrafted In The USA" it does not say "Made In...".

    I had purchased this as the rebranded version through LL Bean.
    The only difference is the branding (Katadhin Iron Works Engineer), the lifetime satisfaction guarantee, and the LL Bean version also has a toe cap.
    Unless you are sold on the toe cap (as I was) it is a better price here on Amazon.

    The leather is top notch.
    A thicker cut is used unlike many boots on the market, with double and triple stitching on most seams.
    With the oiled leather it is not neccesary to use any additional protectors, but most people will tell you it is a good idea.
    I had applied a layer of Mink Oil first, allowed this to dry and applied Obenauf's HD Leather Protector.
    SnoSeal will do nearly as well as the Obenaufs at a cheaper price.
    All of this darkens the leather, but my preference is a deep brown anyway.

    By doing so not only did it soften the leather to make the break in easier, but the water just rolls off, and any dirt is easily wiped away.

    I mentioned the break in period, as it can be rough going.
    The type of leather used, while wonderfully solid and durable, is tougher to break in.
    Most people recommend a 2 week minimum if worn most of the time, and up to 2 months if worn intermittently.
    So long as you size it right, this will mold beautifully to your foot like a glove.
    The top collar rubbed my right ankle quite a lot at first, but after nearly 2 weeks I only feel the slightest pressure on that side still, and expect this to go away after a short time.

    I typically wear size 11s, and picked out the 10.5 as they are known to run large.
    FYI I wear size 10 Doc Martens, and size out to a 10.5 in the Red Wing Iron Rangers as well.

    I'll keep this short and sweet.

    These were great boots, for just over a month. With normal, occasional wear, the Vibram sole split at the toe and began pulling free of the welt. These boots were worn under normal, casual conditions. The same conditions under which pairs of dress shoes have survived for well over two years. They're not exactly what I would classify as "rugged", as the description claims.

    I contacted Chippewa when I noticed the issue with the sole. They replied with the boilerplate response, "While we stand proudly behind our products we are not responsible for damages due to customer abuse or neglect and cannot guarantee any boot that has been repaired or altered. We do not warrant soles against wear."

    That's great, and totally understandable. But if they would have accepted the boots back for inspection, or at least asked for a picture of the issue, they would have clearly seen that this was a defect in the manufacturing process (probably not enough glue), and not a result of wear, abuse, alteration or neglect.

    I contacted Amazon, as per Chippewa's instructions, and they offered me a partial refund of the purchase price to keep them, or a prorated amount if I sent them back. But not a full refund since it fell outside of the return period. I took them up on their offer to keep them and decided to have them resoled with leather soles at a local cobbler.

    The upper of the boot is great quality. They will undoubtedly last for a long time if well taken care of. Other reviews lead me to believe that Chippewa makes a great product. So I apparently got a rare defective pair of boots. Something that would have been understood and completely forgiven if Chippewa had actually stood behind their product.
