Love everything about these boots. The back story of the company, the people running the company and making the boots, the way the company treats the people it's working with, the use of retired dairy cattle leather, and the donation towards wilderness areas from each sale.
These will be hands down, the most comfortable boot you put on. They're a thing of beauty. The stitching is a fantastic rendition of the mountain range that give the company its name. The packaging is as good as you'll get - especially at this price point. The hand written letter included in each of the sales is a wonderful touch. But most importantly, these are really well made, damn good looking and wonderful boots.
Ordered No6 couple weeks ago. Had to send back for exchange two times for the best fit. Allison was kind enough to help me out. The boots are also in perfect condition.
So far the break in with these boots were a cake walk, even though I have worn these to work (landscaping/construction) several times and people are still asking me “new boots?” with a smile. I’m excited to see how these wear and age over the years. Having a leather sole is definitely new territory for me, but I like the ground feel and the sleek look that it gives while still giving the work wear capability. The quality is all there with the stitching and the leather itself, definitely going to get another pair at some point in the future. That ostrich king roper is in my crosshairs or No. 1 in brown. They fit a little snug, that new boot kinda snug that shapes and makes for a perfect glove-like fit when broken in. I wear a 10 D in white’s smoke jumpers (lace to-toe/ plain toe) and 10.5 to 11 in sneaker’s, I always have issues because I like my slip on boots to have enough room for regular middle weight socks without making the boot uncomfortable and these definitely check that box for me. All in all amazing boots that you will find any excuse to wear them all the time.
The process of fitting and buying was bespoke and delightful. The Iced beer enjoyable. One more thing. Boots fit perfectly. Will buy a second pair asap
Blown away!!!!!!!!! They look better dirty
Very nice boots, and are very comforter to wear.
I wanted a quality simple black roper style boot. This boot is #1 quality and very comfortable the moment you slip into them. Buy a set of non-skid sole tapes as the leather sole is slippery on carpet when new. I love this pair of boots and am a happy customer.
I now have the Ropers in both Black and Brown. They are my go to every day boots. Great for business trips and every day wear around the house. They have broken in quickly and feel great on my feet. Walk right through TSA Pre-Check with your Chisos boots and belts…no need to remove either.
I've been through a lot of ropers over the years—all of them eventually failing because of poor build quality (and some of these from the expensive, big name companies).
From the moment I put on these Chisos, though, I could tell they were different. They feel and look solid and the comfort is incredible. After having worn them daily for a while now, I can say that quality is even more apparent.
I think I've finally found a daily-wearer that can take a beating, and look great doing it!
Beyond the boots themselves, what Will and his team have done with this company is top-notch. With great customer service, and an independent and quality-first approach, this is the kind of business I WANT to do business with (and that I will for years to come)!
P.S. I live outside the U.S., but these boots arrived on my doorstep faster than anything I've bought from back home (2 days if I remember correctly). Just icing on the cake ;)
