Hello, just thought I would contribute a little bit after having read the forum for quite some time. The styling on these Chippewa Originals particularly interested me and this thread was a key factor in my decision to purchase these boots.

It looks like a few of these can still be had at various and sundry locations on the internet. I recommend these as a solid, more budget-friendly alternative to Red Wing Iron Rangers.

My first pair was in black, size 10D and they were very tight at first. I have been wearing them for about a year now and they are loose with thin socks, perfect with heavy socks (or thin socks plus thin inserts). I am really thrilled with these!

I actually put a wax polish job on the cap toes at first for a unique dressy look, did my best at a mirror shine. More recently I stripped the wax and oiled the cap toe to match the rest.

I ordered the second pair in Crazy Horse leather and found much better price on them. Went for a 10.5, which was perfect at first but now fits well with an insert and thick socks - very comfortable. If you haven't experienced the hard insole trust me when I say that cushioned inserts will be appreciated. The leather looks much darker than the original color after using Filson's boot oil on them several times.


Please excuse the lackluster photography!
