An easy on and off entry level engineer boot with a nice shape, a big nod to vintage engineer made with quality components and solid build quality.
Chippewa’s 7” engineer boots are a great, easy to wear and comfortable option for riders and engineer fans. The whirlwind leather is very supple and hardwearing, the Vibram V-Bar sole is grippy and long lasting and the roller buckles are solid.
They are immediately comfortable out of the box, are rebuildable for many years of abuse and will only look better throughout that time.
Black Whirlwind full grain American leather
Brass nickel plated buckles
Goodyear welted construction (rebuildable)
Texon® with Poron® cushioning insole
Vibram V-Bar Black outsole
Steel shank for support and stability
Made in the USA
US Sized in E width (see sizing info)
Chippewa boots are listed in US sizes. As an example a size 8 E US is marked as 41.5 European and 26 Japanese. The engineers are an E fit so there is a bit more room in width. They are similar to UK sizing but fit about a half size smaller so 8 US feels very similar to 7.5 UK standard sizing. For comparison a size 8 in Chippewa fits similar to:
-Red Wing: 8.5 US
-White’s: 7.5 D
-John Lofgren: 8
-Alden: 7.5-9 D Barrie Last
