I needed a beautiful boot I could stand on and work in for 10+ hours at a time and friends had recommended Chisos... they werent wrong! With Chisos there isnt a breaking in period, you put them on and its like they were meant for you. Beyond comfortable, absolutely gorgeous, and 10/10 recommended! Thank you Chisos for my new No. 4 Black Boots! I absolutely love them!
Awesome boots! The most comfortable pair of boots I have ever had. These #2's are #1 with me. I really like the brown color a lot. Also the customer service is second to none! I ordered a size that was a 1/2 size to small. No problem, I knew I could return them for a larger size but I never imagined they would pay to ship them back and for the replacement pair! Great products and great company. I see a black pair in my near future! The next time I'm in Austin I intend to thank them personally. Thanks Will!!
I got my wife a pair of Chisos #4 boots as a gift for my military retirement. She loves them. She wore them while we stayed at a Dude Ranch in Bandera, TX and went to the local rodeo over the Memorial Day weekend. She wore the boots on multiple trail rides and then ran around in the rodeo pit while wearing the boots in the ‘Cool Mom Scramble’. What a hoot!
Her boots got broken-in Texas style, and they cleaned up really nicely.
My husband has been a die hard Lucchese man for as long as I've know him.....I am pretty sure the Chios No. 5 Roughout are his new favorite! I ordered them on a Tuesday and they were here the very next day! They are so comfortable can be worn all day
Love this boot. Comfortable right out of the box, absolutely beautiful. I wanted a pair of boots but comfort was at the top of my list in pair of boots (mostly wear Muck boots because they are so comfortable and easy to clean). That search for comfort is what led to the discovery of Chisos boots and after a lot of research into boots, watching the videos and failing to see anything we didn’t like, my boyfriend and I bit the bullet and each ordered a pair (#2 for him, #3 for me). They fit great, look amazing, and are genuinely comfortable.
Better fit and quality than any Justin brand or Tecovas boot! Customer experience has been awesome as well. The Facebook group really helps add to the great customer experience. I've never been part of a family but this is nearly what I imagine being part of a family is like. Very satisfied!
For years I have been a proud Texan who could not wear boots because of foot problems. Will and Christian worked with me to find just the right fit and I couldn't be more pleased. Not only do they look great with the design and color, but they are very comfortable. I can wear then with anything. I am proud to get complements from people who regularly wear boots.
I'm a diehard Lucchese fan and until a friend of mine called me and said two things; 1 - have you heard of Chisos!? these are the most comfortable boots on the planet, and 2 - DON'T ORDER ONLINE! Come into the shop and have a whiskey to pick out your boots. Boom, I was sold.
Unfortunately, the demand on the King Roper's were so high that I ordered online immediately but I plan on having that whiskey and adding to my Chisos collection. I've hardly taken these boots off since purchase and received a tons of comments.
Lucchese fans... Chisos will rock your world.
I am a ranchwife that needed boots that could go from the corrals, to town and look good.
I had a lot of hesitance to purchase these due to price. I did tons of research and eventually decided to go for it. My deepest regret is not getting these sooner. The look: simply amazing. The magic black is truly magical, with lots of luster and shine fresh out of the box. I love the red accent on the heel, gives it a Knight Rider look (Thanks to another Chisos owner, I had dubbed these the KITT boots) . The lining is very soft and comfortable, right from the minute you open them up. Now the big boom: the comfort. Simply amazing. It takes time to get used to it, because you just can't understand why no one else has thought of this. The arch support, and cushioning of the insole is unreal. You almost feel sore from how much support there is... and when you try on another boot, the first thing that you miss is the comfort of the Chisos. I've been wearing mine every day since I've bought them, and that comfort only gets better as they break in. A tip: I would recommend sizing down a 1/2 size. They will fit snug when you try them, but they immediately start to break in very nicely. A small, and very small con is that the leather lining of the insole is a bit slippery just at first, but eventually stops and your foot conforms to that lining. Will from Chisos was very helpful and friendly to answer questions, and even went out of his way to ship the boots about an hour after I had ordered them. Talk about GREAT customer service. I only have great things to say about Chisos. And if the price point is what's holding you back, just TRY them, and you'll see. Now I see what all the hype is about. And it was right on point. These boots are everything but dissapointing. I'll say it again. Best. Boots. Ever. Thanks Chisos!!! (Future returning customer for a pair of #1's in brown )
The cadence goes that “a new pair of Jump Boots can’t be beat” well, that’s because our Greatest Generation Paratroopers didn’t have the opportunity to pull up a pair of Chisos # 5’s. I’ve never been one to just to wear boots when I had to for work, I wore them all the time. I normally wear a 9 1/2 wide or a 10 D. I had trouble with the 10’s pinching my foot Chris suggested I try a pair of 10 1/2’s (I don’t know why I never thought of that) the pinch was gone no slippage in the heel perfect! I wish I could have sampled some of the whisky at store but being a trucker that wouldn’t have been prudent. The staff at Chisos were great Will, Chris and the young lady that I’m sorry I I forgot her name were all friendly and inviting. If you make a trip to Austin Texas stop by and get a pair of Chisos. The only problem is nowhere to park a tractor trailer🤣
Been in the market for some snip toes for a good long while now. I’d likely have gone with Lucchese if they’d had my size in the color I wanted, but it’s been months now with no restock in sight.
Been curious about @chisos for a while so I decided to pull the trigger on their No.5 in roughout. It takes a little while to adjust to the silhouette of a snip toe for the first time - that said, I wore these around the house enough to know that they were the dance partner I was looking for and now I’ve completely adjusted already.
They’re extremely well made - I’d say on par (if not better) with my Lucchese and other nicer boots I have. Enough so to fully justify the slightly higher price point than Tecovas, at least in my book.
Comfort is their pitch and to that end, they come with a very thick and soft insole, which made it almost unwearably tight on my foot but sizing up would have made them way too long. I replaced their insole with a simple flat cushion insole and I’m happy to say they’re still genuinely easy on the feet from the get-go and they stay comfortable all day.
This kind of suede really looks best when you’ve abused and neglected it so it’ll be a while before these really have the character I’m looking for, but suede is the fabric of fall and these should be just about right by the time really cold weather gets here. Looking forward to the miles I’ll put on these between now and then.
I've worn boots since I was a baby, and these are the most comfortable, best made boots I've ever worn! The ordering process was easy, and the boots arrived quickly. The packaging was perfect and they arrived safely. I love that the boots were in their own individual travel bags. Thanks so much!
Borracho, my dog, and I drove up from San Antonio to attend the Two Year Aniversery party. I wanted to see if there might be some rough out leather boots other than the No. 5 available. I was not a fan of the snip toe. Well, we wandered around the grounds and went in the store. It seemed to me that several people were trying on the No. 5 boots ant they look pretty good, especially if your jeans were not too faded.
Borracho and I went out on the back porch to listen to the band. Borracho met several other dogs and some young ladies. That's his job. I went over the the
9 Banded area and helped myself to and sample of bourbon and apple cider they
were offering. I noticed quite a few people were wearing the No. 5 boots and they looked pretty good. I asked for another sample of bourbon and cider and went back in the store just to try on a pair, kind of hoping they wouldn't have my size. Well they did and they also had a belt to match. After trying them on I left them on. After we had been there about two hours Borracho was ready to go home. Since it was a bit of a drive home I thought that was probably the right thing to do.
I could not believe how comfortable those boots are. I did not believe prior reviews by others who had purchased those boots. They are home now and in my daily rotation.
One more thing. Thank you Will for inviting us up for your party. What a nice group of people and dogs. Its a good dog who brings their owner out to a good party.

I've been wearing the Ropers for three or four weeks now. Just like my #2's, the roper is unbelievably comfortable to wear. Will, you've done it again!!!
For 8 years, my regular boot was a pair of Lucchese Classic Ropers, L3515, purchased from Allens Boots on South Congress. Those boots were, and are, soft, supple and quite comfortable. Enough so that I’d wear them often, and sometimes daily, for weeks or months at a time. So that’s my baseline.
The King Ropers are at least as comfortable, though will probably be less supple than other ostrich boots you might have tried. Will told me this is because he used a thicker leather to keep the boots from getting “floppy” as they break in.
If you know the Chisos fit, you’ll know generally how these boots fit, but the traditional roper heel gives a different feel. And the shaft is is narrower than my other Lucchese and Chisos boots. I can still get these boots on and off with ease, maybe not quite as easily, though, as my others. And this does mean the King Ropers can be worn with more narrow legged pants.
And of course, these boots have that Chisos quality you’ve come to expect.
I really like the look and feel of these boots, and will enjoy wearing them for years.
Remarkably comfortable, beautiful boots. They get tons of compliments. I was able to wear them all day right out of the box. And the construction is appreciably a cut above.
These boots are stunning and the most comfortable cowboy boots I have ever had the pleasure of gracing upon my feet. With that they have a problem and that’s when I was walking out in public I had trouble taking my eyes off of them leading me to run into a pole. You have been warned these are the most beautiful cowhide boots on the market today, just be sure to marvel at them when you are not walking with them on your feet!
Well constructed boot. Great leather, looks good. Definitely buying more pairs.
Love the way they feel and love the looks. Im considering wearing them to my nephew's outdoor wedding, north of Austin.
I was looking for a new pair of boots. Mostly based on Facebook sending me ads. I had originally thought I would buy a pair of Tecovas since they have a store near me. But I’m the type of shopper to do research and since I’ve only ever owned big name boots (Justin’s, Lucchese) I wanted to see what was available similar to Tecovas’ marketing style.
Chisos popped up along with Alvies and a few others. It became clear to me that everyone was making boots in Leon, Mx.
However only Chisos had videos showing the difference in THEIR products. The “cut in half boot” video was enlightening and sold me on the reason for the higher price point.
I’m completely satisfied with what I got. They are really comfortable, much more than any other boots I’ve owned in 30 years actually.
The customer service is very personal and that’s a huge plus for me.
Will and the Chisos team have done it again! This time their quality product, a full-width cowhide belt, is something to wear everyday, just like their boots! This belt has the heft and feel of great of a well-made product. I really like the 3/4” spacing in the belt holes.
After checking out pics, reviews, talking in private with other Chisos owners and in-depth with Will Roman himself I decided recently to give the Chisos No. 5 a try. After receiving them the first thing you will notice is the high-class packaging. The box is unlike any other as it is a slide drawer design. Once you pull the drawer out you will find literature and a useful Chisos branded cup koozie. But what is really great is the boots each come with their own boot sack. They are heavy-duty too and useful! I even received a hand written note from Will Roman thanking me for giving them a try. Now, full disclosure, I had told Will I would be super critical of the boots. The No. 5 rough out has all the right shape of the snip toe, the right color, the right stitching, etc. total package in the looks dept. Then I put on some nice clean socks and slipped my foot in and discovered the sheer silkiness of the full leather lining, including what is the show stopper...the leather lined and bonded insoles. The boots run true to size and fit perfectly everywhere by the way. No pinch at the toes but still nicely snug across the widest part of my foot, the vamp is nicely snug at top of foot and just the slightest of heel slip. But back to the insoles. They are thick! And are not mushy soft, they are not like memory foam. Chisos insoles have what I describe as "soft, yet firm support" with a quick rebound. Just like a great pair of marathon running shoes would have. I wore them around on carpeted areas for like an hour a day for a couple weeks. Again, I wanted to try them along with some other boots I purchased before making any final decisions. At the end of the day I did decide to return the Chisos in favor of a traditionally made boot with a hard leather insole system. My reason is that although the Chisos are extremely comfortable, I found that once trying on more traditional boots that the Chisos insole was keeping me too isolated from feeling truly connected to the earth. Now this is clearly a personal preference and I don't have bad knees and actually prefer to wear low profile shoes outside of boots for example, Converse shoes with minimal cushioning. If I had a bad back or knee issues then maybe I would feel much differently. Bottom line is that the Chisos is not an inexpensive boot, but it is worth every penny if you desire the best in a high quality ultra comfort boot made with love by a small individually run Texas boot company. I highly recommend giving Chisos a try. They offer a free return policy and Will is always happy to answer any questions. I appreciate that Will wants all feedback both positive and negative to help him further refine his boots. Peace!
Very comfortable, even for someone with a fractured spine. Unfortunately, some of the stacked leather heel layers split apart the first time I tried to remove these with a boot jack. Very disappointed, and not sure how to fix my brand new ridiculously expensive boots.
