Thank you for your feedback.
The boot fits as expected and looks great.
I was nervous about ordering online, but the boots fit perfectly right out of the box.
FIt true and are breaking in very nicely.

    I love these boots. I've had them for several weeks, and they are incredibly good boots. The leather is top notch. I expect them to last several years, and then I'll have the sole replaced. They're truly really good boots.

    But there are some negative things.
    Break-in: The break-in period is pretty rough. It took at least two or three weeks of daily wear before they really started to break-in. Once they are broken in, they are really comfortable. Early on I treated the boots with mink oil to soften the leather and the waterproof it. If you treat with mink oil, wear thick socks, and keep in mind that these are probably decade boots, a few weeks of break-in is totally worth it. Now every morning, I set them by the register while I'm getting dressed, which makes the leather nice and warm and soft.

    Sizing: Just weird. I normally wear a 10 or 10.5. Because I heard these usually ran big, I ordered a ten. They were pretty uncomfortable at first, but that's to be expected with a heavy-duty product like this. It needed to break in. So I broke them in over a period of a few weeks, so the leather would be softer, and the sole would have a little flex. After they broke in, the boots just didn't fit correctly. They were too long, and too narrow. So I ordered a 9.5 EE. The 9.5 EE are almost exactly the same size as my Clark's 10M desert boots, and after mink oil and break-in period, they are great. But I'm left with a pair of boots I don't need...

    Arch: They come with a pretty high arch support. It was too high for me. So I bought a heel pad to stick underneath the insole, and it works great.

    Orange welt: I was concerned about the apparent orange leather welt in the sole, but it darkens up nicely, and isn't nearly so orange.

    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.

    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.
