A True Small Business

Howdy! I'm Will, founder of Chisos. No big shot investors, just lots of hard work, some luck, and a community willing to roll up their sleeves. I'm glad you're here.

How you do something is just as important as what you do

The Chisos Mountains are located in Big Bend National Park—one of Texas’ most unique and profound landmarks. There’s just something about the Chisos; long have they been a source of physical and spiritual renewal for natives and travelers alike.

It was upon this enchanting backdrop that Chisos boots was born and that origin influences how we operate as a small Texas business. A portion of all top-line revenue is allocated to support Texas land conservation. Our boots are made without calfskin. And each boot features artwork inspired by the natural beauty of Texas.

You become a part of that ethos of pride and responsibility when you pull on your Chisos. That red stripe represents much more than just comfort. We like to think that when you see someone wearing Chisos boots, you know what they stand for.

Texas Loud, Texas Proud

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.

Worker's Rights

Positive, safe working conditions and fair compensation are afforded each worker. The lowest 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 farms screened for their animal welfare practices. By doing so, we do not contribute to the demand for juvenile animal harvesting.


In an industry dominated by big factories cutting corners, building cowboy boots that last decades is a powerful tool to enable sustainable living. Additionally we utilize a lead-free tanning process and full-leather construction.
