I owned a pair of these for three years with no complaints. These things took a beating and never broke down, you can be working in the rain, mud, snow, sleet what ever and your, feet will stay dry and warm the ENTIRE day, it even keeps them relatively cool during the summer. The soles have great traction, even in the snow which is tough for most work boots as the snow gets packed into the treads and ices up. Don't get me wrong you have to kick them clean every now and then but compared to others their pretty stable in snow.

There was one issue I had with the boot which was a plastic piece behind the heal, it had worn through the fabric. The piece dug into the back of my heal and made it pretty painful to wear, even with the heavy boot sock. I tried to repair it but every time it would only temporarily hold up. The plastic piece was in there pretty tight and I feared yanking it out and ruining the boot. I still have them and plan on someday taking them to be repaired.

The boot is expensive, I used it in a very rough environment and got 3 solid years out it. I averaged about a pair a year before I bought the Logger. I wore Timberline, Herman Survivor's and Tom Mccain, (which was the most comfortable boot I ever wore), None of these could't hold up to the environment I worked for more than 10 to 12 months. Even with applying bee's wax once a month, all of these boots leaked within 2 to 3 hours working in wet conditions, my loggers NEVER leaked.

If you have the money go with Chippewa, the costs averages itself out in the long run. If you don't beat on them and work in harsh environments the things will last forever. If you do work in rough environments you will definitely appreciate these boots right off the bat.

You get what you pay for, and these are definitely worth their price.

Have 3 pairs of these boots ( MADE IN USA ) purchased outside of amazon . The reason i have three pairs?? When you recive the boots they come with a card to have them rebuilt . Everything is rebuilt on the boot for 80 $( i think ). YOu have a broken in boot with new laces , uppers , iners , sole , laces . and they re water proof them .

Theese boots have take a beating I work for the rail road we can be outside in all weather from - 10 to 105 i wear these year round. At work I use them for digging in balast ( wich sucks ) and snow removal i have had many boots while working for the railroad Ive hade redwings ( the heelpopped off in 2 weeks while shoveling balast ) timberland pro ( after 6 months the steel toe came through the inside and cut my toe and regula chippeawa ( wich held up pretty good considering made in china but after abouta year it lost its waterproof and laces broke )

If you buy these boots and are comfortable with the high heel ( takes some getting used to but i feel it sraighten out my back) and the high sides ( i think they are 8" loggers ) you will not want another boot . Do not buy the made in china ones first allthough they held up pretty good they are no where near as comfortable. Buy MADE IN USA chippeawa original .

I've been wearing Chippewa boots for over 20 years, the Super Loggers for about 10 years and usually buy a new pair every two years, keeping the new ones new and the older ones around for the dirty jobs. Overall, they have proven to be long-lasting and just about the most comfortable footwear I own, even more comfortable than sneakers! In the past, I could just pick any pair in my size and be done with it. If I wrote this review a few months ago, it would have been, hands down, a 5 Star rating. However, I've recently been shopping locally for a new pair and I don't know what's happening at the Chippewa company but I've had an awful time trying to find a single pair that's made right. I've seen a few pairs in stores with loose lacing hooks or poorly stitched welts where the welt is nice and tight in some spots the way it should be but over 1//4" wide in other spots (You can see an example of this here with the boots Amazon has pictured on the site: check out the difference in the welt between the photo of the toe box on the brown boot, where the welt area--the stitching around the brown ridge where the leather is stitched to the sole--is nice and narrow, vs. the same photo of the black boot where the welt is much wider). I've seen a few pairs where the upper wasn't sewn to the sole correctly and the leather is puckered where it's stitched to the sole. I don't know how those boots, with such visible flaws, ever made it out of the factory. For the price Chippewa is asking for these boots, there's no excuse whatsoever for the kind of shoddy workmanship I'm seeing. I bought one pair but had to return them because the fabric under the tongue was bunched up into a knot that dug into the top of my foot. The replacement boots the store shipped me had the correct size stamped on them, which is the size I've always worn, but the boots were so tight on me that there was no way the size stamped on the boots was correct. So, my advice is to try on several pairs in your size because each single boot is unique and no two are made exactly the same. One might kill you with pain, and the next one might be the most comfortable thing. I think the company needs to get on top of quality control product consistency because trying to a find a pair of boots that fit right shouldn't have to be a crap shoot that requires trying on multiple pairs of boots at various stores all around town until you find a pair that's made right and doesn't hurt.

Very poorly manufactured. Less than six months of limit wear and the sole has completely separated from the upper. Love the boots, but very disappointed in the poor quality.

Ok men. Be ready. These boots are the real deal. This is not not your made in china plastic work shoe. These are a slice of Americana made by American hands out of materials that last. If you buy these boots be prepared to:
Grow a beard.
Eat steak three meals a day.
Wear double kneed work jeans.
Get hit on by random women.
Walk taller.
Own a 4X4.
Start cutting wood.
Operate heavy machinery.

In short these boots will make you a man and not just any man but an Alpha male. These are not just work boots but leather battle tanks you wear on your feet that will make you walk with confidence. Are they heavy? Yes they are heavy. They are heavy because they are made of quality materials. Your knees will wear out before these boots.

I love these boots! I think I will go put mine on now and bench press a tractor tire...

Take it from me; I put my boots on before the sun comes up and I don't take them off until long after the sun goes down, 7 days a week. From swamps to asphalt, 105 degrees or -30 and 4 feet of snow these boots are outstanding compared to all of the rest. I get about 24 months out of a pair of Chippewa Super Loggers which equals between 8000 and 9000 hours of the toughest wear time anyone can put on a pair of boots.
I was a faithful Red Wing wearer for years but I started having trouble with the toes blowing out and the eyelets detatching and I couldn't get any support from Red Wing so I switched brands.
If you work for a living, pay the money to get these boots. They truly are waterproof, I've never had the leather blow out over the steel toe, the soles last better than any car tire you can buy and they're comfortable. When they're worn out you can pay 80 dollars and they'll rebuild your boots at which time you'll have a like new pair of boots that are already broken in for your feet.
Yeah, you can go to walmart and buy a 50 dollar pair of boots that were made in china, but you'll have soggy wet feet, sore heels and knees and you'll have to replace them every 6 months. Do the math, buy American made, buy Chippewas. You won't regret it.

First off I ordered these just because I liked the look of them and I've seen them in stores and you can tell they are high quality craftsmanship just by looking at them. I had a really hard time finding them in a D width and after reading many reviews came to find out that no one caries these is a D width because they run really narrow. I ordered an E width in my normal size and they fit like a glove! If you are wide width you should probably order at least an EE. These boots make me at least 2 or 3 inches taller which is really awesome and they are comfortable right out of the box. The heel somehow makes me stand up straight and alleviates back pain even when standing for hours at a time and the best part for me is how warm these are. I've tried many other boots, thick thermal socks, heated toe warmers, you name it to keep my toes from freezing in the past. With these boots I can wear normal socks and stand in the cold all day without my toes getting the slightest chill which I find amazing! Sure they are pricey but when you're wearing these you'll feel like a better person, trust me.

I bought these for my fiance who does tree work for a living. We have had a very cold, snowy & wet winter so far in TN. He says his feet are nice, dry & toasty all day....even when he is working in 9 degree weather, along with snow & ice. Two thumbs up & ***** stars from me.

Best work boots money can buy! Bought these for my boyfriend as they are the only boots he will wear. Arrived on time & fit true to size. They usually last him a year of daily use & endure all kinds of abuse.
