4.0 out of 5 stars Super quality, but a cautionary tale about sizing!, January 13, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chippewa Men's Street Warrior Engineer Boot (Apparel)
These boots are serious business. Buckles are heavy, leather is thick as all get-out (but soft), Vibram sole is the bomb, etc., etc.
Thing is, I ordered my normal boot size (a 7 in most unlined boots, IE Clarks, Red Wing, etc.) and I couldn't even get my foot into the footbed.
This is a huge bummer, because it seems like the footbed would be just right for my foot.
I don't write reviews often, so I'm not sure if I can, but I'd love to update this review after I receive my new order with sizes 7.5 and 8.
Figure if my boot size doesn't fit, maybe my sneaker size will.
Overall, if you're sure of your size in Chippewas and are considering this boot, then go for it. I can't foresee you being disappointed with the workmanship.
EDIT: So I tried on the 8s and 7.5s. My feet got into both of them with limited struggling, with the 7.5s feeling much better.
I still have some room for wool socks, so I guess thats a plus, but I can't help but feel that the 7s would've been a better fit.
Maybe sometime down the road I'll unload the 7.5s and go for 7s again, in hopes that the opening will be a smidge wider, or the leather will be a bit softer, or the instep will be a bit roomier, etc. etc.
However, now that I've got a pair on my feet, I can definitely verify the radness. Much happier with them now.

I'm puzzled why the writer of the review still wants to try size 7, after proving that size is too small for their foot?
"Size" is just a number, the correct boot is the one that fits.
I sometimes have to go up 1/2 size in some styles, or from some manufacturers.
