The No. 5 pays tribute to the Texas Longhorn and those great herds that defined the old west. Horns that reach the entire width of the boot dominate the embroidery. Both our magic black and roughout leathers provide full grain strength to back up the loud snip toe.

The tan version ain't suede—our roughout is made by turning a full grain hide inside-out. It's our strongest and most comfortable cowhide leather.

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 provides free shipping on exchanges within the contiguous United States within 90 days of purchase. Product costs are refundable within 30 days of purchase.

For all returns, items must be in like-new condition without scratches nor scuffs. We recommend trying on your boots on carpet to ensure proper fit.

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 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.

A Little Rock 'n Roll

Some call it dressy, some say it's easygoing. But nobody can deny that the snip toe of the Chisos No. 5 makes an impression.

Combined with the steer head embroidery, the No. 5 goes where it wants. Get it dirty and don't worry about maintenance—the patina adds to the allure.

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.

Maybe the best boots I’ve ever owned

I’ve been wearing boots for 51 years and these are as quality as any pair I’ve ever had. The attention to detail is incredible, and the customer service has been touch notch. I can’t recommend Chisos boots highly enough, they are just fantastic.

Simply Amazing!!!

After intensive research for my next western boot, I landed on Chisos. And boy, did it not disappoint! Aside from all the qualities in the craftmanship, and the various video reviews, there is this unique feeling in owning a pair of Chisos.

For those that value curated items, this is a must have. Not only is the style and design timeless, but the comfort is exceptional. There was no holding back in the creation and development of these boots. Time and time, I find myself grabbing the No.5 rough outs as my go-to footwear - whether it be work or play. I know that this will be a heritage boot and it's no surprise that Chisos owners turn into product evangelists.

For those that are on the fence about investing in these boots, I strongly suggest watching all the available video reviews to get a quantitative view. One can also read about qualitative insights online and in social media. Then pick your pair and enjoy! By the way, customer service is also exceptional!

I'm eagerly anticipating new inventory so I can invest in the other styles. This will be the only brand of western boots I'll be buying from now on.

New Favorite Boots

These cowboy boots are the most comfortable I have ever owned.
The blonde rough out leather is beautiful and supple. There is no doubt these boots are from Texas wherever I wear them.

1 year review. Worse quality than tecovas at twice the price.

Howdy, y'all, I hate to write this review but it is the truth and I hold that to the utmost standard. My chisos No. 5 have been a disaster since the beginning. I bought them as a special birthday gift to myself as a boot enthusiast for over 5 years and was bitterly disappointed. I wore the first pair that I got everywhere. For only a couple of weeks, two, until the outsole started to come apart from the welt completely. Not only that, but I also had stitching from a pull strap come completely undone. All this within a couple of weeks on an almost 600 dollar pair of boots!!!! I emailed chisos this and they sent me a new pair. This was awesome! Their customer support beat my expectations. They offered to send me a new pair of boots! Behold... the second pair of Chisos faired much worse. Through less wear, the soles have come completely apart from the welt. It is worse on the old pair than on the new pair! Although this review may be late, it is a genuine, unfiltered, experience of owning a 600 dollar (more these days with tax) pair of chisos boots. For anyone planning on wearing their chisos hard and as they're meant, please memorize the chisos customer support email and phone line. Thank you- Seamus Dewane, Boot enthusiast. (below are pictures of both boot failures in chronological order.)

Not as good as I had hoped

The insole pushed your foot forward in the toe of the boot and this does not fit like a normal cowboy boot unfortunately

True Comfort, Beautiful Design!

These boots, are not just some of the most comfortable boots I have ever worn, they are some of the most comfortable footwear I have ever worn! 6 years in the Marine Corps really took a toll on my feet, and legs. The arch support and fit of these boots make walking in them not just a comfort, but a joy! Thank you Chisos!

No. 5 Roughout - Chisos First Timer

I’m newer to cowboy boots and spent a painstaking amount of time researching brands, and went through a lot of purchase and return trial and error. I started with a more entry level price point, but could not get a size that worked, 10.5 being too small and 11 being clearly too big. Wish I would have started with Chisos, as the No.5 roughout in size 11 fit absolutely perfectly and couldn’t be more comfortable right out of the box. After a couple weeks of wear, they’re only getting better. Can’t wait to see how these things age. Couldn’t recommend more highly - worth every penny!

Eric M Nelson (Connecticut)
The best as always!

What can I say I love these boots. These are my 2nd pair of Chisos boots and probably not my last. They feel great and of very high quality. I look forward to wearing these once winter is done here in Vermont, as strong as they are I would not want to subject them to the state's salt. I do wish they had a few more styles or heel styles only static I have with this company, and that's not a bad thing. Guess I'll have to save up for some of their exotics lol.
Overall I love Chisos as a company and how they do things. I look forward to my next purchase.

2nd pair and hungry for more.

The #5 roughout are my second purchase from Chisos. Out of the box these are even more comfortable than my first pair of #2 Ostrich. Both pairs are super sturdy and feel like they will hold up for many years with proper care. I acquired the matching belts for both pair as well as the roughout wallet to complete the set. The belt quality is consistent with the boots. Thick, sturdy, and built to last. I have my eye on the #1 ostrich next.

I have gotten more compliments on my Chisos #5 roughouts than I can count. Thats is way more than our President can count and I’m on the spectrum. Also I’m a trans male to female back to male so try to cancel this review.
