Just got my No.5’s and get complimented on a regular basis. I bought them because I couldn’t get a different premium brand in the correct size so I gave these a try: WHAT A SURPRISE! Comfortable from the start and wore them to a concert that night. I expected a blister after wearing them for about 5 hours but nothing the next day. I will say the toes take a little to get used to but they are freakin sweet!
I have to say I was unsure how I'd like the snip toe but they have continued to grow on me and have became by far my favorite boot I've ever owned. I receive compliments quite on them also. Little snug the first few days but they have broken in beautifully. I have not worn any other footwear out since. Looking forward to another pair of Chisos in the future.
Let me say I wear boots not because they’ve become ‘hip” lately but because I’ve always worn boots. I own a horse farm but I’m also a businessman and often in suits.
While I own high dollar name boots (Lucchese etc) I ordered the Chisos rough out with sniptoe (pretty much all I wear). I expected a 500 dollar boot, decent quality and not much more. Well let me say I’m shocked!! The comfort is over the top! The quality so far is that of a boot in the 700-1k range at least. I tell you if Chisos offer other sniptoes I’d give them a shot. Time will tell if these boots are as good as I think, but after 2-3 weeks (wearing them 70% of the time) these are shockingly great!!!!!
I am really enjoying the excellent fit & looks of my black #5 Chisos! Couldn't ask for a better boot
First off, a quality natural roughout seems to be a rare find. I never thought I would ever own a pair of snip toes due to past foot injuries and glass toes from past breaks but I had to have these beaut’s. As a lifetime work-boot and boot wearer I was skeptical when they came in. I opened the box and was overcome by the smell of that sweet supple leather. “No bad boot can smell this heavenly” I thought, but alas I was still skeptical. My hands trembled and my s*** kickers clenched in anticipation. My eyes nearly rolled back as I felt the inner lining leather(that spans the whole inside btw Youtube the cheif cutting them in half). But they looked narrow, uncomfortable? “Do it, rip off the bandaid” I told myself. It must be worth the money they look so good. I full sent it...
As soon as I slipped my foot in, epic classical music blared in my ears, my pupils expanded black with ecstasy and I saw flashing images of wild horses galloping, snow capped mountains, an eagle soaring, blooming flowers, a mother holding her newborn, an old man being helped across a street by a youth, all the beauties of life in half a second. Bliss.. They are that comfortable.
In all seriousness I have never had a piece of footwear as soon as I take off I want to feel that comfort again and slip them back on. Every foot is made different but personally I had no break in period whatsoever. Not to mention they are damn eye catching boots. After many miles on the motorcycle and walking they are still comfortable after a long day. Albeit dirty and abused(you know, character). Get yourself some foot therapy, Chisos is worth every penny twice over. Second pair in Magic Black on the way.
I visited Chisos expecting to leave with anything but a snip toe roughout, but the combination of everyday ruggedness, great looks and comfort (that feels like a warm hug to your soles…get it?😏) won over my heart and the 52 bones in my feet and ankles. If you can get to Chisos and try everything on, you’ll be glad for the experience to get to know the character of the boots as well as the Chisos team.
All my childhood John-Wayne vibes are channeled through these boots! At first I was disappointed that a new pair of indigo dyed denim bled a bit on the shaft, but it gives them a lovable copperish patina! And, oh yeah, they’re comfy!
I have all kinds of boots and these are my current favorites. Chisos are my most comfortable cowboy boots. My No. 5 are great in the field and out on the town.
I've fallen in love with Chisos, the roughout number 5's get compliments everywhere I go, it's pretty impressive. A must have!
I'm up to 11 different cowboy/ western boots, from modern to heritage brands. And I seem to reach for my Chisos more then the others. The #5 is refreshingly different from traditional leathers. With out the stress of scuffing up a shine on your boots, these will always look great. From work to Church they are extremely versatile.
It took me about 5 days of at least 8hrs in them to fully break in the sole/cork to my foot. The only place that was slightly uncomfortable during the break in period was the tips/ bottom of my toes. Other than that this boot is a 10/10.
I like to pair them with brown or neutral tones, like these "dark chocolate" Wranglers.
