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.

Solid product from a solid company

Excellent quality and comfort boots from a company with equally excellent customer service. This was my first pair of Chisos (no 1 in black), but it definitely won’t be the last.

Very nice fitting boots

They broke is quickly. Comfortable all day boots.

Better than I imagined

I was hoping to try Chisos after reading the reviews. Having tried Ariat and Tecovas, I wasn't impressed and was afraid I wouldn't find boots for me. I wanted to try the No.2 in brushed brown but they were out of my size. I got the No.1 in magic black and holy crap I was in love! I have never liked anything but square toes, however these No.1's have changed my mind. I still want the No.2's but my No.1's in magic black are my #1 choice and I wear them everyday!

Gifted to my father and the man of few words wont stop telling me how comfy they are

Yeah, he loves his boots. He wore his last pair for 12 years and finally needed to decommission them. But hating everything he came across he went bootless for 8 months saying "Id rather wear no boot than an uncomfortable one." So I came across these from a youtube video and boom, loves them. Wont stop talking about how comfortable they are and how clean they feel. Once I need another new boot Im coming back to Chisos for sure.

Damn Good Boots

Love my roughout #1s....quality built, comfortable and beautiful . I used to wear nothing but Lucchese and these Chisos are a better boot for the money.... I will be adding the #2s and the #6s to my collection...

Hands Down Most Comfortable Cowboy Boot

I absolutely LOVE my boots!

Been wearing them six days a week for the last month and they fit like they were custom made for my feet (in fact in years past I had a pair of boots custom made for me and these are MORE comfortable!).

I live in Austin so I payed a visit to Chisos World Headquarters and it was a great experience. So Austin, So Texas.

Met Will and the crew and got personally fitted which was probably a great idea as I wear a 8.5-9 athletic shoe but ended up in a size 11 boot because I have very wide feet and one foot is slightly larger than the other.

I could wax eloquent about my boots for days but it is truly hands down the most comfortable cowboy boot I have ever owned.

They look great, feel great, smell great, and are totally Texana.

Don't waste your money on inferior boots.

Birthday gift

I bought these boots for my boyfriend and he loves them! Most comfortable boots he owns. I want to get a pair myself :)

🤩 wow!

So I purchased my boots more out of curiosity than anything. I mean, how good could they possibly be? It turns out these are the most amazing boots I have ever put on my feet. They are incredibly comfortable right of the box and the leather is so soft and supple it is a pleasure to touch. Also, the customer service with this company is incredible. I went back to purchase a leather conditioner, and I casually mentioned that I had a small inconvenience when I purchased my boots. They went back and corrected the small inconvenience even though it had been weeks since my purchase. Incredible! The company was a joy to purchase from and my Chisos no. 1 is perhaps one of the best made comfortable boot I have ever experienced.

Great Boots

Got a pair of these to where at a family reunion and got a lot of compliments on how they look. Looking to get a second pair soon specifically the #5 when they get restocked in black.

chisos no 1

my name is Mark and I am from North Wales in the UK . I could be your first welsh man to wear Chisos cowboy boots in Wales .Before I placed an order , I watched Jeremiah Craig on You Tube many many times . Of all the manufactures I could have picked from , he convinced me that Chisos were the right brand for me .
And they are . The only problem was , what size to order ? It seems many boot sizes vary in America under different brands so all I could do was guess and hope , as to return them was way too expensive .
The only size near to my size was the no 1 s in a 9 D . The boots arrived quite quickly . It was really exciting opening the box after only seeing them on You Tube . The first thing I noticed was the smell of the leather , no exaggeration there . I took the boots out and they looked and felt great , but did they fit?
Just . Very tight at first , they still are, but getting better every day . I have only worn them around the house and as soon as they loosen up a little more , I will wear them more outside . Probably a 9 DD or a 9,5 D might have been perfect right out of the box ,but I have no complaints . The boots are an excellent quality in all departments .
Actually one complaint , I didnt get a personal letter from Will . Other than that , I am very happy and I will try to get the people of Wales to buy Chisos Cowboy boots and make them fashionable over here in North Wales .
