I own them all .. except the reserves. These boots are very well made. Probably the best you will find. They wear like iron. The problem, if you consider it a problem, is these boots take forever to break in. If you have high arches it’s brutal. I used a boot stretcher on all four pairs. Sizing up is not the answer as the toe box is plenty big. Just know the boots will last. I relate a good pair of boots to a good baseball glove. The better the product the longer they last. The inserts are not bad but love they are removable and customizable.
This is my 3rd pair of Chisos boots, but my 1st pair of NEW Chisos boots.
Normally, I hold to my hunches and stay at $400 or below for any cowboy/western boot because its a sacrifice; but these Chisos are on a different level and SO hard to find, size and style, on e-bay or elsewhere.
I have over (20) pair of cowboy boots of different brands and types. Most were purchased used and a few custom boots considered even higher end than Chisos, but none are more comfortable or well made than the Chisos. The leather is thicker, the soles are thicker and the insoles on the Chisos boots are the most comfortable, without question. You can tell the owner did design all Chisos boots with that purpose in mind. Style, fit, durability and comfort. Sure I'd like them to be cheaper than $545 but there is an old saying, "you get what you pay for" and considering this, Chisos boots are worth it. Just start saving for your next pair.
I lucked out twice on e-bay to find near-new Chisos boots and I check every day for new listings. You have to if you see them used- they will sell to someone, so move quickly.
Have been wearing these boots (in rough out) for about 2 weeks. I wasn't sure I would like ropers but have been loving the style and comfort. I own many pairs of different boots and these get compliments from people every time I wear them.
I’ve mostly worn boots like Alden Indy’s and Viberg Service Boots over the years but I have an all new fascination with cowboy boots thanks to Chiso’s!!! They are so easy to slip on, are super stylish, and have plenty of attitude!! The roughout is so easy to pair with denim and even give me an added boost in height. I stand a lot throughout the day and I find leather soles are super supportive and breathable. I agree with other reviewers about not sizing down. I went true to size and am very happy with the fit, I have a high volume foot and I can see how going down a half size would have caused instep pain and/or pressure at the toe due to the tapered toe shape. The insert is super thick and comfortable as well, 10/10!!!!
The Chisos no 6 have been a fantastic purchase and by far the most comfortable boot I’ve owned. The brushed brown color is fantastic and looks even better with every scratch it gains! The no 6 was perfect for me due to the shorter heel! Will definitely be buying from Chisos again.
They are most certainly nice boots. But as far as comfort goes, my left boot feels great and snug, the right boot on the other hand feels tighter. And can get a little bit unbearable to wear. Hopefully it will break in.
Classic leather boots. These fit well, look great whether or not they’re scuffed, and feel great on the feet.
Also want to mention that the customer service I got while swapping for a better size was amazing. Not the best customer service I’ve gotten with boots, but with pretty much anything. They’ve got great quality and have earned repeat business.
Before I bought a pair of the No. 6, I read the reviews of folks comparing Chisos to Lucchese boots. As someone who owns over 10 pairs of Lucchese and many other pairs of other brands and even custom made boots, there is no comparison. The Chisos is far superior in feel and quality. The leather is rich and soft and there is no questioning that the quality of the construction is better. The cool thing is that each time I wear them (and I have worn them every day since I purchased them 2 weeks ago), it seems like they get more comfortable. The only problem I have now is trying to determine which Chisos pair I will purchase next.
As I write this review I am wearing my Chisos no. 2's. Not sure which boot I like more but I can tell you one thing, they are both very comfortable. I probably get more comments on the roughouts but they are both great.
