Rated 4 out of 5 by Bassnwhaler well built....
I have a very wide and THICK foot. High volume they say:) This boot is not as full volume as the cap toe version which is my only issue. I wore a 13 ee in the cap toe and ordered the same in this version. It is longer than most 13 shoes and is wide enough for an ee, but it is snug in the height around the forefoot if that makes sense. Wide flat feet will LOVE it. Wide fat feet will do fine but break in is longer.
Great leather, thick and supple. The cordovan color is great...polish-able if you want. Classic Chippewa last and feel. Very solid. I love that. I feel I will never wear them out but if I do they are resoleable which is a must for me.
I have had these for 4 weeks and have worn them almost every day, including a 2 day walking trip through San Francisco. I am a big guy and they feel good for a 265lb man walking on asphalt for 2-3 miles.
Hope this helps.

These cordovan chippewas are a special boot. They're excellent at their pricepoint, beautiful leather, and excellent welting and inseaming. I am an 8.5 in most boots. I probably could've gone with an 8 in these, but I like room in the toebox. They're a tad narrow.
They're fairly comfortable right out of the box, but after a few weeks of wear, they're really working in. There's not a lot of cushion to speak of, but I believe they'll keep molding to my feet over time.
They look gorgeous with jeans, but you can wear them with khakis. They're a Fall/Winter staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dtvt Near perfect
If a less is more boot is what you're after this is the one. Classic and understated in looks, comfortable and rugged against the elements, near perfect so far.

The boots are very comfortable and well made. The only item that could use some improvement is that padding in the ankle area should be added in future models. The laces provided seem a bit short for the boot. Otherwise this is a great boot.

The boots appear to be very well made. The materials look like they are good quality. They were comfortable right out of the box.....a little stiff, but I think they'll soften with age. I like the fact that they don't have "lug" soles, because they track in mud. I am a very "plain" person, and don't particularly like logo's printed everywhere, and I was pleased to see that these boots have "LL Bean" embossed on the tongue....under the strings, where it's not that visible.

I have two pair of the cap toe version, and these make a little more dressy looking addition. I Find them slightly smaller but still good with boot socks in my usual size. Completely comfortable at first wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueHiller Love Them
Initially I thought these would take a while to break in as the leather (and sole) appeared pretty stiff at purchase. I wore them on and off for a day, but never had any tightness or cramping. After 3-4 days I just ended up wearing them and loving the fit, feel, and look. The soles are firmer than Chippewa rubber soles (they can hear you coming on pavement) but I think they will wear better/longer and overall I think they add to the comfort. The color and cut are excellent and in general I am very pleased.

At this price point, these are really the best boots out there. The construction is flawless and the durability is great. Right out of the box, I found them to be very comfortable, with no break-in period required.
