Watch: Our Story
A True Small Business

Howdy! I'm Will, founder of Chisos. No big shot investors—just a hardworking team, a little luck, and a community passionate about craftsmanship.

You probably also believe that quality work still matters. That doing the right thing is nonnegotiable. And that we should be good stewards of what we've been given.

Those principles form the foundation of Chisos.

And we've learned that the people who own a pair of our boots believe in those values, too.

I'm glad you're here.

Our Workshop

Nestled in the gorgeous state of Guanajuato, the same family-run workshop that mentored Will is the one we still work with today.

People First

Safe working conditions and fair compensation are afforded each worker. Apprentice pay is more than twice the region's living wage and all roles receive state pension contributions and health care benefits.

Ethically Made

Chisos heritage leathers come from hand-selected dairy cow hides, sourced from regional farms and ranches. They are unique, durable, and we reduce the demand for juvenile animal harvesting.


In an industry dominated by mass-production, building cowboy boots that last decades is a powerful tool to enable sustainable living. We utilize a lead-free tanning process and are conscious of our impact.
