be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
Bought these because it stated made in the USA and they were under $700, the cheapest or less expensive price I could find for these types of boots. It took about 2 weeks to get used to my feet and started to feel comfortable. I started off slow, wearing every other day. Then for the 2nd week every day. They seem very well made and they look awesome. My only complaint is the sole. It need to be a little more substantial, maybe a lug type or just a thicker type of sole.
Very happy with purchase. Boots arrived quickly and fit great! I did order a half size smaller like it said to do. Normally wear a size 10 ordered size 9 1/2 and fit great.
Perfect boots. Comfortable right out of the box. Schott quality totally. The price is definitely right. I liked them so much, I bought a pair in brown also. American made with American leather. Jerri Reyes of Schott made the whole transaction with grace and ease. Definitely buy a 1/2 size smaller than what you typically wear. You will not be disappointed in these boots!
Needed to replace 10yr old Frye's and stumbled upon these while I was getting a Jacket in the NYC store. I think they're a step up (soles, leather). I was able to try them on before I ordered online and I'm glad I did as I went down a 1/2 size (they run roomy for me and I dont wear insoles). Really great leather, and made in USA!
The leather boots are definitely supreme. One can tell from its smooth surface the quality of the leather and I can't stop feeling amazed by its texture. The boots are a good continuation as the classic Chippewa no longer continues its production. One can tell the boots are carefully constructed.
The online staff is also very helpful in providing suggestions to choose the size.
I also find its lightweight a plus. Without the steel toes, I can wear the boots and walk a long way without feeling tired. The vibram sole also adds good cushion (bounce) when I walk.
Another big plus is the softness of the leather that it requires less training and break-in before I can wear them out.
A pity is that the boots when I received them the right one seems to be tried by previous customers. It has some unnatural sagging on the front. Given the leather is very soft, the boots then fold according to that sagging instead of how I want it to. I hope the company may reserve one or two pairs solely for testing size so that when we receive the boots, they preserve the original way they are made.
A bummer from myself is that I did not notice the cardboard support inside the vamp when I push my foot in it. The cardboard hides very well inside. And I was thinking how the smooth looking boots feel so stiff and rough until I reach my hand inside the boots.
I hope Schott will later consider extending the design to slightly taller boots (14" or 16"), so that when the boots sag they reach the ideal height. Then I will rush and buy!
These boots look fantastic. leather is nice. well constructed. But my feet hurt after about 100 yards of walking. I'm having the same issue with some Thorogood boots I have so maybe its just me.
I tried insoles but they don't really fit in the boot
I'm 62 years old. This is the first engineer boot I have worn that is actually comfortable but still very functional. And it looks good too. I wore engineer boots most of my life, steel toes for work and planes toes for riding, Chippewas. While they were certainly good boots they were never real comfortable and as I get older my feet can tell the difference. Now I could wear engineer boots again they are that comfortable.
Great looking boots and getting extremely hard to find these days. I went with a half inch size down and they fit me perfectly.
I ordered them 1/2 size smaller than my usual size and the seem to be just right. I've had them for 2 days and they arrived 2 days after I ordered them, wall packaged and safely delivered. The color is beautiful & the leather is supple on the shafts and supportive around the foot. They are well made but the true test of that will be determined over time. I will see how they conform once they break in - and by no means are they unpleasant to wear, but they will mold themselves to me with use. The sole is Vibram and it will be durable, if they are like any of the others I own with the Vibram sole. Still, they seem shaped a bit odd - as you can see in the photo, the sole at the toe doesn't contact the ground. I'm not sure of the reason, or if that will change with break-in. Someone else mentioned a preference for a Cuban heel, which these don't have. In general, I also like the Cuban heel, but these seem to be fine and I think they will be comfortable and adequate. I like the contrast the light upper part of the sole gives to the boot. If you are on the fence, I would recommend them and if you ride a motorcycle, as I do, or just like the style, I do think you will be satisfied. Quality, American - made craftsmanship is hard to come by, but these boots are fine examples of it.
These boots fit perfectly
