The best boots I have ever had. I have about six or seven pairs of western boots. These by far exceed the quality and comfort of all of them by far. The fit and comfort of the boot is just amazing. the quality of workmanship and the quality of the materials, especially the leathers used is way beyond what I am used to getting from other boot companies.
My feet and I thank you Chisos. Going to have to pick up another pair very soon.
I'm sure the boots are great but they're not mine. I purchased them for someone else as a gift, however the service was five-star!
I have had the #5 for a couple of weeks... and to be honest I havent worn them much because they are so good looking I didnt want to mess them up..haha... BUT.. the fit is incredible.. as an owner of Tony Lamas/Lucchese/Tecova/Justin boots... the fit of the #5 is my favorite.... soooo out of the box/cloth bag (nice touch) and on the feet they go..!!!
My only suggestion would be to maybe offer the option of a smooth leather shaft so when wearing slacks, the pant legs dont get hung up on the suede...a minor thing for my new FAVORITE boots
First let me commend Will and Katie for being gracious host . They truly make you feel at home. I love all my Chisos boots . I have the #1's , #2's and just got my hands on the #5's. Out of the 3 pairs I think the #5's are my favorite pair . I just like the snip toe and the rugged looks of the rough out . That being said my Chisos are by far the most comfortable boots I own . I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a great pair of boots.
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!
Great Boots! Supple and beautiful! I keep getting people commenting, Hey! I like your boots!!
So far they seem awesome just a little bit tighter fit in comparison to the #1s. They have become my daily boot. I wear them any chance I get. I also get plenty of compliments on them. These are my third pair of Chisos. I think inhave found my new boot provider. Hopefully I can get a free tumbler lol
No. 5's are number 1 in my book! The boots, the packaging, and the goodies (who doesn't love koozies and stickers?) that came with them made me happier than a kid in a candy shop. The handwritten letter included was also a very nice touch and proof that the company is dedicated to their customers. I tried these rough outs on and something clicked immediately. The leather is softer than a baby's butt and the stitching on them is second to none. Pair them with some 501's and they're not to be messed with. Thank y'all, Chisos! I'll be back.
Like clouds on your feet
