I received the ropers the day before I left traveling across the country, decided to wear as my primary footwear, was not disappointed, best fitting boot ever right out of the box, ran from one side of DFW to the other to catch a flight, beat my younger travel guys to the gate, ha,, really nice boot, plan to buy another Chisos style soon. Tevos are marginal at best compared to these, great boot - team.
I’ve had my boots for a little bit over a month. I waited to send my review in because I wanted to make sure I gave these a real review instead of just saying how beautiful they are well, they are beautiful. I love the what I assume is a French toe and not a big fat square toe. And I love the rough out, it reminds me of my dad‘s first boots, and reminds me of cowboy boots. The first word I would use to describe these is …. rugged. And by that I mean the feel when they’re on your feet, you can just tell that they are well made and will last for a long time as I said above comfort and looks great. I was excited to buy some Chisos, as I had had my eye on them for a couple of years. I love Will’s story, and I was not disappointed. Keep on my friends.
I don't know a whole lot about this conditioner, I got it with their deal they had going on. I planed on getting some new boots in the summer. So figure I would try this out and get the boots early. I've only used them on my first pair of Chisos boots. It seems to do what it's for I'm not an expert I also watched the site video on conditioning. Vary informative and to the point.
Only issue I had was after it leaves the boot I little sticky, nothing that's going to stick to anything, tacky would be a better word I guess. Guessing it's the wax, though I may have used to much not sure. But I'm sure once I'm wearing them again it will go away. So thumbs up from me.
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.
Very happy - true to size. Short break in. Would highly recommend the No 6 or the No 2. Both comfortable and very well made. Chisos is outpacing their competition!
My boots look great, no question.
I’ve only worn my boots perhaps for 2-full weeks but they've broken-in and feel much less tight in the width than my first couple of wears. I normally wear a 10.5D in Tecovas but sized up to an 11D for my Chisos (my Tecovas felt a little tight around my toes and were uncomfortable to wear for long stretches). Unfortunately, my right boot squeaks and has more give in the insole than my left boot—it feels like my right foot sinks with each step. This is pretty disappointing especially given the price paid and the quality of materials being, otherwise, superb. There isn’t a sharper looking pair of boots but I cannot stand the sensation of my right foot sinking with each step followed by the aggravating squeak.
I waited about six months after purchase to write this review so I could get a good sense of how the boots hold up. I'm an ICU doc with high arches and I'm on my feet all day. Walking, standing, occasionally walking quite fast. I work days, nights, weekends, sometimes 60 hours a week and 24 hours at at time. Finding shoes that can take abuse and not leave my feet hurting at the end of the shift has been difficult. The famous hospital clogs work but don't look great. These Chisos No. 2's in brushed brown are without a doubt the most comfortable footwear I have ever worn. They were comfortable right out of the box (just order your regular Brannock size!), and have become even more comfortable over time. I put rubber sole savers on the bottom and will definitely resole them when the time comes. My feet are fine at the end of the day/night, and I even wear them in my free time. They also can stand up to being hit with rolling beds, 300 pound x ray machines and the occasional spray of blood. Patients notice and comment on them all the time. Would highly recommend to anyone on their feet a lot, or just for the good looks.
I recently received my third pair of Chisos boots, #1 in magic black. Just like my #2's and #6's, the #1's were comfortable right out of the box for an entire ten hour workday. The quality and craftsmanship will keep me coming back. I can't recommend Chisos highly enough!
I love my Chisos boots. I've had them for about two months now. They are just all around great. There's nothing to criticize about them. They are superior to my other boots in every way. I got the roughout #1 model. I like the style, embroidery and finish. They really stand out and look good. They are very comfortable.
I ended up get a half size larger than I normally wear in Nike athletic shoes. A full size larger than I wear in my tighter fitting Italian loafers. That seems to contradict the advice on fit from Chisos. They recommend to get a half size smaller than your athletic shoes. I tried that size at first but it wasn't going to work. Chisos was easy to work with on getting a different size. They even gave me the fast expedited shipping that I had paid for, on my replacement pair too. I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly they showed up. These boots are a great value and top quality, so I think it's totally worth possibly having to try a different size. Just plan on that possibly happening and roll with it.
Top notch craftsmanship, and very comfortable!
All of Chisos offerings are a demonstration of hand crafted production of superlative quality.
I’ve been eying Chiso’s for a while before I pulled the trigger. I had done plenty of research on their construction. I don’t think there’s another western boot that can compete at this price point. I was hesitant on getting a square toe and how they would look overall on me.
I have got several compliments on them so far. I clock in at 12.5E on the brannock. I purchased the 12EE and it turned out perfect with my Darn Tough over-the-calf socks. These are the best fitting pull-on boots outside my Redwing 1155’s
Hopefully more styles are offered in wide eventually. I’d be in trouble if the ostrich boots had EE options right now
Very well made comfortable cowboy boots
Great looking boot. Haven't worn boots in over 50 years, took about 2 weeks to break in so can wear them all day. Very comfortable boot to wear.
This belt is thick and sturdy, but still feels luxurious. I conditioned it right out of the box and the leather immediately began to show more character. It fits true to size. I have lost a lot of weight recently (currently size 32) but I purchased at my usual size (34) in case I put weight back on. I have no problems fitting into it. The 3/4 inch hole spacing keeps from stressing the holes as much. I love that the ostrich hide in this belt is in 2 segments. I have an exotic belt from Tecovas that runs small and is patched together in 5 segments which detracts from the aesthetic. I greatly prefer both of my Chisos belts.
I’ve been wearing the Brushed Brown No. 1 for over three weeks, and it is by far my most comfortable and favorite pair of boots. Thank you, Chisos.
This is my first, but not my last purchase from Chisos. With full transparency, I did have a quality control issue with the first pair of No. 6 roughouts that I was sent, but I chalked that up to Christmas rush and closing down for the holiday. With an assist from Will, the return went through and I got my new boots today. (I do wish they came earlier, but they were worth the wait). They are comfortable, have a great fit and look awesome. Looking forward to my next pair. Also, shout out to Avery for all his help on the initial purchase.
I am really enjoying my new Chisos #2 boots. They feel great!
My Chisos look incredible and definitely turn heads but I was expecting them to be much more comfortable based on the reviews alone. I am hoping that they’re going to break in after a few more weeks.
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'm not someone that has always worn boots. I had a pair of Justin gypsies in the past but always wanted a pair of quality, leather boots. I accidentally got a size too small at first and was amazed by the quick and kind customer service. I was able to get an exchange twice until I finally got my correct size. After wearing them indoors on carpet for a few weeks, I finally wore them outside and found that having an extra half insole for my heel helped give me the perfect fit and comfort. I'm still getting used to wearing the boots but I couldn't be happier with the look and quality. Thanks Chicos team!
I spent 2 years wanting a pair of #2's. I have a family, kids, etc and couldn't in good conscious just buy them outright. So after a year of wanting the boots, and talking myself out of spending that much money on myself, I decided to start saving up. I started saving up spare cash, from change, to birthday money, gift cards, whatever. About a month ago I was finally able to order the boots.
They arrived, the packaging and entire experience was perfect. The boots fit snug, and have since worn in to a perfect fit. They still smell amazing.
Absolutely live you guys at Chisos, don't ever change how you're doing things, it's absolute perfection!
THANK YOU CHISOS!
Look good, sound good, and feel good all you'd ever need
I haven’t owned a pair of boots in years, incredible quality and very comfortable right out of the box.
While the whole construction of the boot is very nice there are a few problems I ran into. In the Fitting guide card that came it wasn’t a true fit. When putting on the boot it just slides right in with no “thump” so it considered big? But the part going across my foot feels a little tight and does hurt a little and still in the process of breaking it in and does feel slightly better. However my toes feel fine not really cramped or anything. So it’s a mixture of fitting big, small and just right. With that kind of fit I feel like this is not ok for the high price. I don’t know what size is the best for me if I ordered the size 8.5 D. Hopefully if I order a different style it’ll be better.
