    Chippewa is a separate company that supplies Schott with their boots. They make a very high-quality, durable product. You won't go wrong with a pair.

    Prices are a little high for Chippewa....check Zappos or something for a similar style from the main Chippewa line first, might save you some cash. Used to be able to get plain to Chippewa boots for about $150 but they've caught onto their popularity within the #menswear crowd and recently their prices have crept up to the low $200 range it appears. Still decent for the price but no longer the great value they once were. Getting into Red Wing territory and in some cases I think they put out a slightly nicer product than Chippewa.
