An Undisputed Classic
Black full-quill ostrich—paired with our heritage magic black cowhide—is the pinnacle of classic cowboy boots. Tanned to perfection, you will only fully appreciate how stunning the No. 1 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 slightly firm 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.
My 3rd pair of Chisos boots and easily the most perfect. I appreciated the initial stiffer fit of the ostrich vs the slipper-like #1 Magic Black, allowing the substantial ostrich hide to form fit to my feet after 3-4 days. Awesome. Compared to my $1500 Lucchese Ostrich, the trade off with Chisos ostrich tanned leather is much thicker and satisfying while being slightly less refined than the Lucchese expertly tanned but very thin leather. The build quality of #1 Ostrich is just superb, and the feel of wearing these boots is just perfection, so well balanced with less “dive” to the toe compared to the Magic Black #1. Fabulous boots! Note in the photo that my Ostrich heel is 1/8th inch taller than my MB #1s, yet feels more perfect and balanced. Nice spur ridge on the Ostrich as well. I wear a rotation of boots but if I had to choose only one pair of boots to wear to hell to meet Lucifer, the #1 in Ostrich would easily be it. Brilliant execution on these boots and damn comfortable. So well done, Chisos! And worth every penny paid.
Purchased the Chisos black No.1 Ostrich boots, size 11 on a Friday and spent the entire next day in them at tailgates and the game. I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort even after a long day on my feet. No significant break-in required to know these were the best boots I've ever had. My strongest recommendation and great customer service to boot ;)
My favorite boot. Durable, comfortable, and sharp looking. You can go to the Bar, to the Ranch, and to a Boardroom, and it works, really well!
Just picked up the No 1 in Ostrich. They are a beautiful companion to my Brown No 1s. Special thanks to the staff for making sure I got the correct size and fit. The Ostrich is thick but quickly breaks in and are easily all day boots in a matter of just a few times wearing them.
After trying cheaper ostrich boots from other brands that had loose thin leather and just didn’t fit right….these came out right as I sent another brands back. I knew from the cow leather chisos that these boots were a lot better made and more comfortable than other brands so I ordered them. Im glad the other brands ostrich boots didn’t work out because these are amazing. I can’t wait for them to come out with #2 and hopefully #6 in black ostrich too. If you’re looking at chisos and haven’t tried them yet don’t wait any longer. I unfortunately wasted a lot of time trying other online brands and being unsatisfied with them all while I kept wanting to try chisos but didn’t think they would be that big of difference. I was wrong and now I cant praise chisos boots enough. Also from someone who stopped wearing cowboy boots daily because of my back and hip pain. I’m actually able to wear cowboy boots again on the regular. So thanks Will!
This is my 3rd pair of chisos . I recently received my chisos No 1 in Ostrich. You can see and feel that the boot is extremely well made : robust , heavy , premium leather, luxurious lining on the inside , it’s a joy to wear them . Very comfortable and handsome , I can only say that I’m lucky to have them in case they don’t come out again . I will treat them nicely so I can inherit them . Chisos : you did it agin 👏👏
