Quality American made work boot.
on January 12, 2016
I bought my first pair in May of 14', just bought my 2nd set Jan of 16', in the last 20 months, I have worn these boots 40-50 hours a week average in an industrial ship repair machine shop. Prior to getting these boots i would get a new pair of boots every 6 to 12 months. I am givin a safety show allowance every 6 months. In the past, I replaced all previous boots not because they word out, but because they made my feet hurt. When I bought the first pair I was generally accustomed to wearing a size 10, I followed the fitting guide on Chippewas' web site and came up with size 11, being apprehensive i compramised and went with a 10.5. I have since learned, after having my foot sized by a boot maker am more suited for a size 11. Even though the 10.5 was most comfortable boot i had yet, I ordered this set a sise 11 and they fit great. This is the first time in 10 years I cam recall replacing my work boots with the same brand and style as my previous set. My old boot, in the pictures, the leather still has lots of life left, the soles are worn though and they have lost a some cushion in the soles. I grew up in and old school logging camp, where it was a ritual to always give a set of new leather boots a thourough greasing prior to use and i still uphold that ritual even though i am not a logger. Very happy with Chippewa- Justin boot for providing this quality american made option, in work boots. To thevextent i actually think about buying a few more sets to stash away in case they quit making them or they get outsourced. Anyway thats my thoughts on this fine boot, thanks for reading.
