Love my new NO 2’s super comfortable and built heavy duty! These cannot be compared to other boot brands, they are in a league of their own!
I’ll be honest, when I first took delivery of the boots, I was beyond excited. My heart was racing and I was elated to actually buy my first pair of brand new boots from such a wonderful group of people. The smell of the leather, the texture of the grain, the suppleness that surprised me even after a few times of just holding them; these boots were and still are, a treat for the senses. After the initial excitement wore off, I suddenly had a dilemma. What kind of story could I give these boots. Well, after a couple weeks of mundanely wearing them around the house and admiring the sheer attention given to the overall quality, something fell into my lap. Literally. It was when a friend of mine tossed a voltmeter for a tractor at me and invited me over to his second job so we could see about his purchase.That’s when it all started. Between taking apart the fuel system on a ‘52 Ferguson TO30, to riding shotgun in a half built Packard doing donuts in a field, to having some beers with some grade school friends while their chihuahuas chased their chickens, and finally driving 140 miles through cities and highways. After all was said and done, I hadn’t realized they had been on my feet for over 9 hours from that morning to that afternoon. The “break-in” period in these? Where? I think it took them about 30 minutes of mild flexing to fit my feet. The sizing after standing in them is perfect; once the insole compresses and molds to your foot, it really opens your eyes to how much shock your feet are getting in lesser boots. This brings me to that aforementioned quality. This leather is soft. No, I mean REALLY soft. Like, “butter your hands and season a turkey” or “melted beeswax balm” SOFT. That doesn’t mean that it’s all show and no go. Far from it. The sole on these is one of the thickest I’ve seen on a Cowboy Boot, but about right for a Harness or Engineer boot. If I had to guess, I would say there’s a very stout midsole in these which will be great for longevity. Add the insoles they come with and you can get up to a pretty good stride if you wanted to in these. Those insoles also have a hidden positive that I never thought of. If your feet are like mine and flex easily still, the support gets better if, say, you drive long distances over, say, hiking an 8 mile trail just because you felt like it. So far I haven’t done any mechanical work in these, but I have absolutely no reservations about them not being up to it. I have a feeling I won’t be tired of these boots for a long, long time. Thank you everyone at Chisos. I can’t wait until I work my way through your whole line.
This is MY TAKEAWAY based on what I know about Chisos. I've been searching for a boot that I would love to wear on a daily basis, you know...really be exited about the look, feel, fit and finish. The perfect imperfections, that molded to my foot feel, the slipper experience. Let me say it this way...My Chisos feel the way I was hoping and expecting my Lucchese's to feel after spending hundreds and reading about how special they are. I have several brands now and NONE OF THEM COME EVEN CLOSE. Another important thing to understand is how picky I am, and I dont except anything less the greatness...that goes for myself and my business as well. So please, if you are serious about a great pair of boots, take the time to research not only them but also Will and his approach to life, business, fairness and respect. Understand, these are my impressions and opinions but I feel I am a good judge of character and know quality when I see (and feel), it.
So I was hesitant at first due to the price, but they do offer a payment plan. Plus the fact that they donate some of the proceeds to land conservation is awesome. After trying on the boots for the first time I instantly fell in love. Never have I tried on a pair of boots that fit so perfectly out of the box. I own over 10 pairs of other boots, and now I regret not buying the Chisos first. If you're having doubts just buy them you won't regret it. Chosos has excellent customer service.
This is my first pair of Chisos Boots! All I can say is, this is the best crafted, most comfortable and absolutely the most beautiful pair of cowboy boots I have ever owned! They really feel amazing right out of the box!! Thank you !!!! James Swertel
I bought these as a birthday present to myself, and I absolutely love them! I've been wearing them around the house during quarantine just to feel normal. They are so comfortable, and the design is subtle and beautiful. And aside from that, I love the company's commitment to taking care of their workers and the environment.
They are the most beautiful and most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned! I’m torn between wearing them all the time or displaying them prominently in my home like a trophy. I can’t wait for this quarantine to end here in Virginia in June, so I can show them off to everyone. As a Texas Ex and ex patriot living on the east coast, I can think of no better way to show my love and pride of being a Texan than these boots. I imagine my friends will want their own pair. I love my Chisos No. 2s! Thank you!
From first seeing these boots online I knew I had to have a pair one day. The first thing that drew me to them was the color of the leather (inside and out) and the toe shape. When I eventually placed my order and received the boots, I immediately noticed the quality of the materials, the fantastic smell of leather, the beautifully stitched toe bug and shaft which to me is pure art and not forgetting the personal handwritten note from Katie. I have a number of boots from various manufacturers and was interested but skeptical about the claims about the comfort of the insoles but for sure these are the most comfortable boots that I own even though they are the newest. I have been recommending Chisos to friends and colleagues and am very proud to be a little part of the Chisos story through my first edition No. 2's and very much look forward to seeing what Will and Katie have planned for the future. Great job y'all!
I initially purchased the No. 2’s and was blown away how comfortable they are and how good they fit. I have worn them every day for a little over a month now, I just purchase a pair of the No.1’s now and have been alternating between the two. I am now only exclusively wearing Chisos! They are great and look amazing for any occasion.
These No. 2 boots are as beautiful as boots as the Chisos are as mountains. I love the design elements like the pictograph motif fine stitching, the red stripe on the sole, the cactus fruit-colored interior, and the crude stitching on the boot loops. Their subtle sophistication sets them apart from other peer brands. I have used the self-isolation period to get them broken in around the house, and they now fit perfectly. I’m not going to use them for utility purposes like riding horses or working in a pasture, though — they are way too nice for manual labor.
A review from my wife:
My husband bought these boots and checked the front door every day for the delivery like a kid waiting to open gifts on Christmas morning. I couldn’t understand his excitement at first, I mean they’re boots. He had literally bought 3 other pairs over the last 6 months. I had had just about enough of men’s boots at this point when I find out he wanted a $500 pair. He told me all about them for the week leading up to ordering. Handmade. Quality. Beautiful. The way they are supposed to fit. Firm handshake. The Chisos mountain range story. All the things.
And then they arrived. Our little quarantine ray of hope. I thought he was going to stroke out. I toyed with the idea of making him wait to open the box…because you know, the global plague. But I didn’t have the heart for it. He opened the box and glowing, found his personal thank you letter. Then he removed the boots and filled our living room with a heavenly scent of leather with a hint of branding on the shaft and a rare Cuban cigar on the sole. We would find ourselves shamelessly sniffing the soles of the boots for the next week. He wore them around the house for a week not wanting to scuff them in case something was wrong and they had to go back.. We literally found nothing wrong with them. They fit the right way, the arch support was immediately noticeable, he raved about how comfortable they were, and they are drop dead gorgeous. And I’m not a boot gal. It’s been 2 weeks and he wears them everywhere, absolutely loves them.
Seriously guys, this is the boot. The attention to detail, the quality, craftsmanship - all of it. We liked the story behind the company and the charities they supported. Katie helped with sizing over the phone and even gave us a first responder discount. It was quite a lovely experience and in the end, his happiness is worth every dime.
I’ve owned about 10 pairs of cowboy boots and these are the most comfortable by a long shot. Beautifully crafted - worth every penny and then some.
Wearing these boots from the kitchen to the living room has been a highlight of my shelter in place experience. Thanks for bringing some joy to me while I can't get back to Texas and for donating mask covers with my purchase!
Could not believe how good they felt when you put the boots on they had that little pop to it and I never heard of a cowboy boot that had that little paw when you put your boots on it fits perfect and breaking in time very little It's worth every penny and more thank you very much I'm glad about the boots from you .
Chisos #3 are my first pair of cowgirl boots and I was expecting something that would have to be broken in and to my surprise these boots were very comfortable the first time I put them on, and I have a very wide foot so comfort is really important to me. The boots are also really beautiful and very good quality. I highly recommend the boots and will probably gat a black pair too! Hook ‘me Horns 🤘🤘🤘
hats off to will roman at chisos boots! love my new chisos no 2s, they were amazingly comfortable right out of the box and will actually hand delivered them! turned a material birthday gift into an experiential one! we usually go out to big bend/davis mountains for my birthday but can't this year on account of the coronapocalypse so this was right on brand and the next best thing! that's a texas sized 10-4! thanks will! amazing boots!
I must say that I have now worn my new boots for 2 days in a row. I walk quite a bit during the day and I am very pleased to say that they are great right out of the box. Perfect fit first try thanks to Will. I cannot stress how much the insole does for the comfort. I can spend all day in my other boots but the ball of my foot knows it. Don't hesitate to try a pair. I must say that they are everything they advertise. Once you wear them you will see the value. Thanks for the hand written note too!
I’m a huge fan of cowboy boots. I own quite a few pairs and have many different brands. Chisos boots have a completely different fit and feel to them compared to any other boots I own -- in a good way. They’re a pleasure to wear all day, from the moment I slide my feet into the all-leather inside of the boots until taking them off at the end of a day. The boots are extremely comfortable, durable, and cool looking as well! Definitely looking forward to putting a lot of miles on these boots. Customer service is outstanding and love the concept of the company slogan. Can’t wait to see what’s being planned next for Chisos.
Man, from the second I stepped into these boots I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning again and that feeling keeps coming back every time I step into them. They're comfy as heck and I'm looking forward to showing them off once we get out of this quarantine!
Love my Chisos No2 they are the most comfortable and favorite boot I own. From the moment you slip them on you can tell they are made with care and great detail. Do you yourself and your feet a favor and get you a pair you will not be disappointed. Will keep up the good work you were going to be the only boot company I buy from from now on. And on a sidenote thank you for donating N95 mask covers. As a healthcare worker I can tell you they are greatly appreciated.
These pairs of boots are probably the most comfortable pair of boots I've ever worn. The gel sole is an amazing feeling when you're on your feet all day. Looking forward to future buys from chisos
In lieu of current events, I haven’t gotten to wear them a bunch but they are definitely more comfy than my tecovas and I love the way they look. Definitely good quality. Lookin forward to breakin’em in when everybody can actually be out and about. Thanks and Cheers!
Beautiful. The side of the sole being a color different from the boot makes it more interesting. The petrogliff pattern stiching is nice. I normally wear a size 10D, and so that is what I ordered, and it fit. It is smaller than a harness boot, such as Durango, it fits like a dress boot.
These were love at first try on. Not only do they have the perfect look. They are extremely comfortable! Easily the best boots I have owned!
I cannot believe how comfy these boots are! I’ve been wanting boots for awhile and when I saw the article in the Alcalde I thought I’d take a chance. They did not disappoint! I can’t wait until social distancing is over so I can wear them more!
I love the design and feel of these boots. There is so much detail that shows the craft and quality behind it all. I'll wear them proudly for years to come!
Love my chisos so much! Most comfortable boots ever. Love the vision of Will and his team. The Chisos mountains are my favorite place and Chisos boots are hands down my favorite boots!
I purchased the Texas Boot Jack as a gift and it was a hit! From start to finish, a great experience doing business with Chisos! Many thanks!
Love my Chisos NO.1 they are the most comfortable boot I own. Will definitely be a life long customer of this great company.
Once you wear them enough to allow the boots to conform to the individual contours of your foot the boots are extremely comfortable.
I wear a lot of boots while day tripping through the small towns of Texas. I think I've worn almost every brand. These are the most comfortable cowboy boots I've ever worn. The insole is a game changer. I stay in them all day and my feet keep tripping. After a full day of walking around, old timers in Texas will say "My Dogs Are Barking" meaning their feet are worn out. Well, my dogs stay happily asleep all day.
These boots (Men #1) look great, fit great and feel great! I've gotten nothing but rave reviews from my friends and co-workers about these boots. Also, Will, the owner, worked with me to get them shipped overseas since I am in the military stationed outside the U.S. I am a Chisos boots fan!
These are perfect for the hipster Austin cowgirl on the go! These look nicer than a work boot, but are much more comfortable than a dress boot. I think these boots plus black skinny jeans are my new work uniform!
I bought the Chisos #2s and they and was totally blown away by the comfort and quality of these boots. What people need to know is that you cannot compare these to other cow hide boots that are in the $200 or so price point, These boots, the hides they are made from and the quality of the workmanship are worth every penny, In my 62 yrs I have owned many pairs of boots and only one pair I had were as comfortable as these and those were a Dan Post calfskin boot, but the leather was so soft and THIN I had to be very careful when I wore them, or they would get a nick in the leather. The Chisos boots hides are just as soft but are also thick and tough and can be worn with no worries. Save up and buy Chisos, you won't regret it, and if you do have a problem, Will and his staff will take care of it.
I’ve never worn a more comfortable pair of shoes. The fit is perfect (particularly around the “toe box”). They’re great looking (strangers have asked about the cool red stripe on the heel), solidly built and rugged. This is my new standard for boots. Just make sure you’ve got someone to leave them to!
I wear nothing but cowboy boots every day for my demanding work building stages at music concerts. Many days I walk over 35,000 steps, so my boots better be damn comfortable. These boots knock it out of the park in that regard.
Before my Chisos, I wore a pair of Ariat work boots that did the job, albeit with some complaints. But these Chisos are on a whole other level. As soon as they arrived, I put them on and they were 100% broken in with zero discomfort. I've since worn them every single day for the past three months and have never experienced a more comfortable boot or shoe. As someone who's dealt with foot paint my entire life due to a flat foot, this is an immense relief.
You can look online as to whether they're your style or not, and the quality construction methods are clear to see. But the biggest unknown when trying new footwear is the comfort. Rest assured, Chisos gets it right. Chisos boots are the most comfortable footwear I've ever worn. Nothing, not sneakers or anything else comes close. I wear them every day, and expect to continue doing so for many years.
I now have my first pair of Chisos boots as well as my first pair of square toes. I own a number of different boot brands including custom and by far, these Chisos are the most comfortable and stylish boots I’ve ever had on my feet. I don’t see me ever buying any other brand of boot. Thank you Chisos.
