The Chippewa Story
Chippewa Boots has been supplying Americans with top-quality rugged boots and shoes for every purpose since 1901. Chippewa boots aren’t just made, they are built with the guts and determination of the loggers and engineers who paved the way, built the roads, and constructed the buildings that have made this country what it is today. They’re built with uncompromising quality and standards of U.S. craftsmen, to be the finest made, most reliable, authentic, and rich in heritage luxury boots available.
Vibram Stockbridge Outsole
The simple fine lines offer a dress profile, while the lug pattern in the center of the forepart and heel offers traction and stability. Vibram Gumlite is a micro-cellular, synthetic compound that combines slip-resistance with the long-wearing characteristics of rubber, yet Gumlite is half the weight. Vibram Gumlite maintains its physical properties and slip-resisting characteristics in cold weather. It is lightweight like EVA, yet longer wearing.
Handcrafted in the USA
In 1980, Chippewa Shoe Manufacturing Company embarked on a new campaign, - "Hand Crafted by people who care". The campaign focused on the skill of the craftsmen who work for Chippewa that are truly responsible for the high quality outdoor footwear by ORIGINAL CHIPPEWA. Over the years, this campaign has evolved into our company philosophy that Chippewa products use only premium raw materials and are hand crafted in USA. To this day, our U.S. made boots still carry the "Hand Crafted in USA" labels as homage to the men and women that have built the Chippewa brand.

These boots are fantastic. They are light enough and breathable enough to keep my feet dry and comfortable even after a long day. The leather has become very soft and improved over time. The soles have held up better than other pairs of boots I have owned. Typically the soles wear and become slanted on my boots at the back of the heel. With these boots there is slight wear, but much less than I have experienced on boots such as Timberland. I get the impression that these boots will be durable enough to last for a very long time which makes them a fantastic investment. I enjoy these boots because they look nice but are also very durable which makes them versatile. I have used these boots for everyday casual use, for going out, and for yard work. I typically wear a size 12 but I purchased an 11.5 and they fit just right.
Update: I love the boots, broke in pretty quickly, maybe after a week, really didn't notice it anymore. Comfortable as hell. The only problem I have now are the laces. Started shredding a couple days ago, and now the lace under the coating is exposed and falling apart. Not a big deal, but just figured the laces would last a little longer then this, maybe a year, but weeks? Still love the boots though.
Addendum: I'll start with the bad and finish with the good. These are a little lower than what I normally go with and they chafe inside the top edge of the boot but they've also only have about five days worth of wear.so I expect it should stop in about a week or a thicker pair of socks might do the trick.
Now for the good. They have the best arch support of any boots I've owned and the insole simply hugs my foot while also offering an incredible amount of support. By far one of the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. The construction seems first rate for a pair of work boots and my initial impressions are that I'm going to get a lot of wear out of these but I'll let you know in a year.
Note about fit. I'm wearing these with padded toe and heel Smartwool hiking socks and they fit great but if I would order half a size smaller than my usual size if I were wearing them as summer boots with lighter socks.
As far as cleaning is concerned, I've tried a few products and so far the best are Saphir Renovateur - Luxury Leather Care Balm -1.7 Fl/oz and 10-Seconds Shoe Deodorizer and Disinfectant - The Only EPA-Approved Shoe Disinfectant effective against Bacteria, Fungus, Mold, and Mildew (Pack of 2).
The boots will not hold up to snow or rain without heavy duty waterproofing, and should not be used on a jobsite, but for comfortable for an office setting or just a day out on the town.
