The first time I slid my foot in the boot, it is buttery smooth. The satisfactory thud of my heel landing and the boot wrapping around my foot felt so good I let out a WOW that’s what good boots feel like. The inner sole is really thick and has great cushion and topped off with leather. Everything about this boot is top notch and I get compliments whenever I wear them. Before buying these a wore basic Ariats, Cody James, Justin’s, durangoes, and many more and these are just next level comfort. I have a higher arch on my left foot and I had to put a boot instep stretcher on that side (which is what I have to do for all my boots not a fault of the boots) and the right foot fits perfectly. I recommend them to everyone that’s ready to pay for a premium boot worth the price. You have a lifelong customer now.
The best boots I have ever had. I have about six or seven pairs of western boots. These by far exceed the quality and comfort of all of them by far. The fit and comfort of the boot is just amazing. the quality of workmanship and the quality of the materials, especially the leathers used is way beyond what I am used to getting from other boot companies.
My feet and I thank you Chisos. Going to have to pick up another pair very soon.
One might see the pricetag and be taken aback. But pull the trigger. They are worth every penny. They are comfortable and look so good.
I tried several belts from the big box store, and they ALL ended up being junk after just a few months, usually because the belt buckle would fail. Others would fray or come unstitched causing delamination of the belt.
I then tried a Lifetime belt from a well-known company who advertise QUALITY. Paid a good amount for it, even on sale, and thought finally a lifetime belt, and it even said lifetime belt on the back. Full Grain Leather seemed nice. However, after a few uses, the stitching started coming out. Looking on the internet I found that they changed from American made to China made, and I guess they changed the thread because almost everyone was having the same problem, and the Lifetime belt was actually a one-year warranty.
Then I found the Chisos belt. I ordered two, and brown and a black one. On the back of the belt there are no marking to indicate where it is made, or the leather type, but from what I can tell it is top grain buffed and stained leather on the front, and full grain leather on the back. The stitching appears to be top notch.
The belt is a two-piece belt that has a heavy duty buckle, two brass screw post attaching the buckle to the strap. This would make it more difficult to change buckles, but if you have ever had a snap quit working you can appreciate the attention to detail.
There is a 5 ½” spread between the first hole and the last hole with 8 holes total measuring ¾” apart. This allows you to have a better fit than most belts that have a 1” between holes.
Now this belt is longer than the typical belt of the same size, so when I ordered mine, I could have gone down two inches and been fine. However, if you order one and it is too big, you can undo the buckle and cut the belt and adjust the size. Not that you would want to with a new belt, but say you lose a lot of weight, instead of having a belt that is too big, and useless, you can change, the size down (you just can’t ever make it bigger). No more putting a nice belt up because it is too big.
Overall, the quality is outstanding belt, and I may have found my lifetime belt.
There is definitely a buzz going around on social media about the Chisos boots. Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical. I ordered the No 1’s in brushed brown and the fit/finish far exceeded my expectations. I own Luchesse Classics, Black Jack, and JB Hill and the No. 1 is on par if not better
They feel like sneakers! Hands down best boot ever! Only thing I will wear now.
After checking out pics, reviews, talking in private with other Chisos owners and in-depth with Will Roman himself I decided recently to give the Chisos No. 5 a try. After receiving them the first thing you will notice is the high-class packaging. The box is unlike any other as it is a slide drawer design. Once you pull the drawer out you will find literature and a useful Chisos branded cup koozie. But what is really great is the boots each come with their own boot sack. They are heavy-duty too and useful! I even received a hand written note from Will Roman thanking me for giving them a try. Now, full disclosure, I had told Will I would be super critical of the boots. The No. 5 rough out has all the right shape of the snip toe, the right color, the right stitching, etc. total package in the looks dept. Then I put on some nice clean socks and slipped my foot in and discovered the sheer silkiness of the full leather lining, including what is the show stopper...the leather lined and bonded insoles. The boots run true to size and fit perfectly everywhere by the way. No pinch at the toes but still nicely snug across the widest part of my foot, the vamp is nicely snug at top of foot and just the slightest of heel slip. But back to the insoles. They are thick! And are not mushy soft, they are not like memory foam. Chisos insoles have what I describe as "soft, yet firm support" with a quick rebound. Just like a great pair of marathon running shoes would have. I wore them around on carpeted areas for like an hour a day for a couple weeks. Again, I wanted to try them along with some other boots I purchased before making any final decisions. At the end of the day I did decide to return the Chisos in favor of a traditionally made boot with a hard leather insole system. My reason is that although the Chisos are extremely comfortable, I found that once trying on more traditional boots that the Chisos insole was keeping me too isolated from feeling truly connected to the earth. Now this is clearly a personal preference and I don't have bad knees and actually prefer to wear low profile shoes outside of boots for example, Converse shoes with minimal cushioning. If I had a bad back or knee issues then maybe I would feel much differently. Bottom line is that the Chisos is not an inexpensive boot, but it is worth every penny if you desire the best in a high quality ultra comfort boot made with love by a small individually run Texas boot company. I highly recommend giving Chisos a try. They offer a free return policy and Will is always happy to answer any questions. I appreciate that Will wants all feedback both positive and negative to help him further refine his boots. Peace!
Great Boots! Supple and beautiful! I keep getting people commenting, Hey! I like your boots!!
So far they seem awesome just a little bit tighter fit in comparison to the #1s. They have become my daily boot. I wear them any chance I get. I also get plenty of compliments on them. These are my third pair of Chisos. I think inhave found my new boot provider. Hopefully I can get a free tumbler lol
The No. 2’s are easily the best boots I’ve ever put on my feet. The construction and fit and finish are phenomenal. Can’t wait to see what Chisos has in store in the future. Thank you guys for making a great boot.
Unsurpassed quality and comfort. Absolutely the best boots I’ve ever owned and I’ve gone through dozens of pairs over the years.
Gorgeous boots. I particularly love the wine red interior, and the Texas outline on the heels. It's like you've left your mark wherever you step. I would've loved a 10.5 sizing option, since it took a bit of extra snug double sock-wearing to wear mine in, but once I did, they were fab. Love that the black is elegant enough for dressing up, while still entirely comfy.
No. 5's are number 1 in my book! The boots, the packaging, and the goodies (who doesn't love koozies and stickers?) that came with them made me happier than a kid in a candy shop. The handwritten letter included was also a very nice touch and proof that the company is dedicated to their customers. I tried these rough outs on and something clicked immediately. The leather is softer than a baby's butt and the stitching on them is second to none. Pair them with some 501's and they're not to be messed with. Thank y'all, Chisos! I'll be back.
Most comfortable boot without having to try it on! Customer service is what attracted to me these boots and had to order! So much appreciative for finally finding a boot brand that made me feel like a family member! And the craftsmanship is the best in the business
The Chisos No. 2 is a really nice boot! It looks great; much better in person than in the photos. But when I really fell in love with them is when I slipped them on my feet. These are the first pair of slip-on boots I have ever tried on that I felt fit me. The materials are high quality as is the craftsmanship. But that fit! I enjoy wearing these things and I'm glad they are built to take on what ever you throw at them.
