Let's face it. There's not a lot of ground-breaking research going on in the world of T-shirts these days.
This is your standard, every day T-shirt.
And it promotes one of the best companies making boots today. I have all the colors, but love the red with white letters the best. Each time I wear it, I get a chance to answer "Who's Chisos" and hopefully encourage a new, happy customer.
Plus, it looks great with the magic black No 6's.
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.
Chisos boots are quite soft and supple right out of the box yet the leather itself is very thick. The materials, craftsmanship, and aesthetics are very premium.
Welp y'all. The hype is real. These boots are insanely comfortable out of the box. By far the best I've ever owned in terms of day one comfort. In terms of looks y'all will be happy to know my sister in law was eyeing these boots all thanksgiving wishing her man had boots that look this good. The square toe is super unique. Not broad, almost round but squared off by the welt. Pretty legit take on a square toe. Fit and finish is top rate. Whoever is putting these together has an eye for detail, and that ain't lost on me. These boots aren't cheap... But the value proposition is justifiable. I've paid more for boots that didn't match this level of quality. Enjoy em!
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 ;)
Let me start off by saying I live in Syracuse NY and I have no business wearing these boots. All of my friends thought I was crazy when I bragged about ordering a $500 pair of cowboy boots but every single one of them apologized when I finally showed them how magical they are. These boots are something else. Beautifully crafted and extremely comfortable! I literally haven’t been able to take them off. Everywhere I go I get compliments on my boots and my confidence has gone through the roof. I feel like I can take on anything the world throws at me when I wear these boots and I’m in love. I can’t wait to purchase my next pair in roughout as soon as a couple more paychecks hit the account.
Recently I also purchased Thursday boots’ new desperados to wear as my “beater” boots since they’re $200 cheaper, but any time I slide them on I can immediately feel the price difference and I always end up wearing the Chisos. Unless it’s raining out I’m wearing the Chisos and I have the confidence they’re going to last me many many years.
Just got my No.5’s and get complimented on a regular basis. I bought them because I couldn’t get a different premium brand in the correct size so I gave these a try: WHAT A SURPRISE! Comfortable from the start and wore them to a concert that night. I expected a blister after wearing them for about 5 hours but nothing the next day. I will say the toes take a little to get used to but they are freakin sweet!
The construction and material quality of these boots is exceptional, making it a good competitor to more expensive brands. The only issue that is very subjective for me is the fit of the boot as I have large arches it feels a bit too tide on tops of the feet but I believe this will be better as it breaks to my feet.
I have worn these boots twice since purchase. On the day I bought them I wore them to a 5-hour wedding event. They felt like I'd been wearing them for years. The next time I wore them to work in NYC. I walked from 34th St. to 57th St and back again with a full day of casual walking in between. No blisters, no pain, just a boatload of compliments. I'm loving these boots.
These boots are the most comfortable I have ever worn
Awesome boot, I’m still breaking them in. First delivery I ordered 10.5 wide, which was a little loose. I then received my 10.5 D’s which are snug. Just waiting for them to loosen up.
Fantastic quality boots from a company that cares about their customers. 10/10 will definitely be buying more of these in the future
After watching Rose Anvil’s video on Chisos, I knew I had to give them a try. I was *not* disappointed. They are made from a very thick leather, and the colors really pop in the sunlight. The rich leather lining runs throughout the entire boot, even into the toe box. Just don’t wear light colored socks, unless you want them pink! The insoles are great for walking around town all day, without feeling too spongy. As a pet owner I appreciate that they are removable; not only for the ability to replace them, but also to remove fur hairs from inside the boot with better ease. My only gripe is that the spur ridge is somewhat fragile. Which is to be expected with an all-leather one. So I can’t fault them for that. Altogether I can definitely recommend Chisos to anyone searching for a quality cowboy boot with lots of “wow” factor.
I have two pairs of these boots, so clearly I like them. Sizing is the same as my Nick's, which is a half-size down from my sneaker sizes.
However, my first pair are the roughouts. I'm a huge fan of roughout leather. But the light color picks up crocking from jeans very easily. And while some folks don't care for roughout leather darkening when you apply dubbing to it (I prefer Obenauf's HDLP), this leather does not darken one bit. Good news for those of you who hate the roughout darkening, but as someone who loves to watch the roughout leather darken while applying dubbing (which would help with the crocking), it was a bit of a disappointment.
Now that was the first pair. And as much as I disliked *that* about them, I bought a second pair. So that should tell you how unhappy I am with them. In other words, the comfort is fantastic and the fit is excellent. In fact, the first day I owned them, I wore them for ten hours, on my feet, on concrete, all day with no ill effects.
My second pair, in the black magic, is by far my favorite pair of boots. The fit is even better than the roughouts, they're still very comfortable, and they are nice enough to pair with dark wash jeans and a jacket. Nice enough to pair with a suit, if I could find a suit with trousers cut for jeans.
These boots haven't - and won't - completely displace my Nick's boots for working outdoors and they sadly cannot replace my dress boots for wear with my suits (until I can find a suit that plays well with them), but they are my favorites and what I choose to wear pretty much all day every day that I'm not trudging through snow, bushwhacking in the back country, or need to wear a suit.
What would I do different? Well, I wouldn't have bought the roughouts, if I could do it over again. I'd do the brushed brown, instead, and I'd absolutely do another pair of the black magic (and I probably will buy another pair in black magic to leave pristine and pickup the slack when I have to have my first pair resoled - and maybe I'll buy a pair in brushed brown to alternate with my blacks and leave the roughouts as a beataround pair). And as a fan of roughout, I hope to see a darker brown roughout and, what I'd really like to see, a black roughout.
Finally, the crew at Chisos has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, quickly responding to my emails, even about small and mundane details.
Happy Thanksgiving, guys!
Besides “Allison” calling me Dennis on the thank you card, everything from the shipping to the product is perfect. 10/10 would buy again.
After owning the number 2 for over a year it was time for the number 1. I’m in the process of breaking these now. However the shaft of the number 1 boots are definitely wider. It’s something that I’ll get used to. But my go to jeans (Levi’s 541) won’t be worn as much do to the shaft shape showing with these boots.
If your contemplating getting a pair just do it. I’m very much picky when it comes to boots. But these are legit. They also have a very nice staff and super fast shipping at least to Texas…
They run true to size. I’m usually a 13 in tennis shoes. 11.5 in red wings and I was a 12.5 in these and they fit like a glove.
These are high quality and good fitting boots. I did have to wear a 1/2 size smaller and use boot stretchers to give a little more top space.
I had seen people online talking about how comfortable these boots are and they weren’t lying. These are just about as comfortable as a pair of Nike’s. They aren’t just comfortable but you can tell as soon as you open the box that you’ve got a high quality well crafted boot. They are more than worth the price! I enjoy these so much I’ve already got my eye on a pair of number 2’s to add to my collection soon!
So, a few weeks back I bought the black no. 2’s. Have to say they are a nice looking boot. I was a little apprehensive initially as I am not the biggest fan of wide square toe boots. I tend to be a little more traditional western boot. However, these boots are closer to a French toe and have a really nice look and feel about them. I chose a 9D as that’s my normal size. The boots fit a little more snug than I like, but chose to stay with the size and place a thinner insole in them. Within a few days of wearing them, they loosened up enough where I was able to place the original insole back in and wear them. All in all, a great comfortable boot and will buy more. See you guys in April when I visit Austin. Hope to pick up a no.5
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.
Started with the Magic Black and had to add the Roughout. Great boots that are perfect for my needs. Fast break in and all day comfort. Great all around boots I highly recommend.
My absolute favorite and worth every dollar boot. I still have boots from respected brands that are not as comfortable or built any better than these Chisos no. 2s.
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.
