Nothing quite like it
The Chisos No. 2—now available in full-quill ostrich. Tanned to perfectly compliment the brushed-brown Chisos heritage cowhide leather you know and love, you will only fully appreciate how stunning it is when you unbox it for yourself.
Selectively-bred South African AAA grade ostrich feels plush without sacrificing durability. Natural variances in leather tone and texture give each pair a unique presence.
Expect your Chisos ostrich boots to feel a little stiff upon arrival. This is by design; the leather breaks in perfectly without becoming floppy (as lower grades are known to do).
The only downside is the time you’ll spend thanking people for their compliments.
Your Chisos boots will last decades with appropriate attention. The vamp (leather surrounding the foot) and leather shaft require only minimal care. Condition this leather about once every three months. Store in a cool, dry location and take a day off between heavy uses to allow the insides to properly dry.
The leather soles of your boots are designed to wear out and be replaced, much like the brakes on a vehicle. Your mileage will vary depending on conditions of use, your weight, and walking style. Avoid repeated exposure to water and excess moisture.
To extend the life of new soles, have a cobbler apply a rubber sole saver upon receipt. When needed, a cobbler can perform a full resole and heel replacement.
I now have three pair of Chisos boots and the new Ostrich have quickly become my favorites. They were comfortable from day one and I highly recommend them to anyone.
Anyone familiar with Chisos already knows the quality of the boot. From its all-leather construction inside and out to a leather stacked heel with a leather Spur Ridge, I might add (one of the only boots that still does this), to a leather heel counter, which way too many boots have now. I could go on, but you can do a search on Chisos and find out all you want about the quality of the boot.
What I like about the new Ostrich boot is how quickly it is broken in. After only three wears, I no longer must wear my boot socks to keep blisters off my calves. The insole is just as comfortable as my past Chisos, except the dye doesn’t seem to transfer onto my socks as the old ones did. Did they change it? It sure seems so.
The color of the brown is fantastic, and the quills appear to be from the Crown and or Groin area. I did not find any skin defects or damage to either of the boots, which indicates this is grade A leather.
I love how the boot feels while wearing it, and the arch support it gives me is the best of any boot I own. This is truly a boot I can wear all day long and is a boot that can go from casual to dress and look good doing it.
If you haven’t given the Ostrich a try, I suggest you do it before they’re gone I don’t think you will be disappointed.
