The No. 1 is crafted from Chisos heritage cowhide, available in either our speckled magic black, gorgeous brushed brown, or roughout. The artwork shows the sun and stars over the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National Park and our signature red heel stripe completes the piece.

Chisos heritage cowhides boast superior durability to juvenile leathers, and our proprietary process renders them uniquely soft. Natural variation occurs by design. Handcrafted in Mexico.

Chisos offers full refunds on like-new items within 90 days of purchase. We also provide free exchanges within the contiguous United States.

Chisos boots fit true to size according to US shoe standards. Simply order the size that you wear most often.

Generally boots will match the same size you wear in other leather footwear, or a half size smaller than your athletic shoes. If you normally waiver between two sizes, select the smaller size.

The conversion between men's and ladies' is approximately 1.5-2 size increments. For example, a Men's 7 D is a Ladies' 8.5 or 9.

The boot that Started It All

Named like oil wells—in the order of development—all Chisos boots owe a debt of gratitude to the infamous Chisos No. 1.

Elegant embroidery showcases the sun rising over the Chisos Mountains, a tip of the hat to our namesake in Far West Texas. And that medium round toe pairs well with pressed jeans or a tux.

The classic horseman's boot, let the Chisos No. 1 anchor your collection.

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 your pickup truck. Your mileage will vary depending on conditions of use, your weight, and your walking style. Avoid repeated exposure to water and excess moisture. When needed, a cobbler can perform a full resole and heel replacement.

To extend the life of new soles, have a cobbler apply a rubber sole saver upon receipt. No matter what, physics is going to win against leather soles and stitching. To slow the process, a cobbler can add some rubber to mitigate.

Chisos Number 1 - Magic Black (Missouri)
Great quality and extremely comfortable boots!

I have flat, narrow feet that has made it near impossible to find boots that fit and are comfortable. After years of giving up wearing boots and reading reviews, decided to give Chisos a try. With the help of a wonderful customer service contact, was able to select the perfect size. The boots are really well made, extremely comfortable right out of the box and feel even better after a week of wearing. The only problem is that now I need another pair in brown! Thank you for designing and making such a good boot Chisos!

Great pair of boots!

Pretty awesome now that they are starting to break in

Got the #1’s in rough out. The left boot fit like a glove. The right one was really tight in the vamp which led to the side of my foot hurting after wearing all day. And I sit in an office. I had to by a baseball to shove down to vamp for a few nights and it’s just now starting to fit right and no more pain. I figure it’s just rough out is maybe that much harder to break in. But was worried about it for a while

Amazing comfort

These are the most comfortable cowboy boots in existence. The build quality is next level and they are great looking too. I own several pairs of cowboy boots from different brands and these blow all of the others out of the water.

Everything perfect

First pair of boots, military discount. Everything was perfect from customer support when I contacted them, to potential change in order. Everything about chisos is perfect, workers, quality, fit, nothing to complain about. I will be purchasing more in the near future

Best boots I have ever owned!!!

I own many pairs of boots but there isn't one that even remotely comes close to the build quality, comfort, and styling of these boots. I was so impressed by the Chisos boots, the owner, and the staff that I ended up purchasing 3 pairs of boots. I love this small business and will support it every chance I get by buying more boots.

All-day comfort in style

I have been eyeing these boots for a while now. I had a pair of cowboy boots from another brand, but I found them quite uncomfortable and would often swap them for other shoes/boots halfway through the day. I saw the reviews for Chisos, but I was hesitant to pull the trigger. Now that I have had Chisos for a few weeks, I am kicking myself for not grabbing them sooner. They are probably the most comfortable boots I own—of any style. Long days out and about, standing for hours, even walking some distance, these boots feel great every step of the way! They are attractive when doing it. I love the design, the brushed brown colorway are versatile. The little flairs are eye catching. Looking good has never felt so great. If you are on the fence, just go for it already. I’m already eyeing my next pair. Only question is do I get the same in another color or go for another design? I know whatever I choose will get me where I am going in comfort and style!
