Chippewa send over their selection for Fall Winter 2013. Perhaps a little underrated in amongst the scores of ‘Work Boots’ available on the market, the brand has an impressive history going back to 1901. Wisconsin born, their primary product was a top quality logging boot for area camps in the pulp and paper industry. They soon went on to be one America’s top-selling footwear manufacturers, making their mark with both work shoes and their incredibly popular motorcycle engineer boots. So, back to today’s Chippewa, thankfully the brand have kept true to their roots, no fancy-pants updates or unwanted frills and tricks. They’re also damn comfortable, we can attest to that. Here we look at the Original and Reserve collections: American hide leather, Goodyear leather welt, Vibram outsole, handcrafted in USA. You know the score. Find them in stores, including J Crew, soon. Take a look.

    when would the reserve collection be released
    i have a service boot from the original collection and now the ones from the reserve line boast of horween top leather, these would definitely age gracefully and develop a rustic worn in look.
    cant wait for it to be released!!!

    quality is on par,from the original line comparable to the redwings iron rangers and slightly below that of the wolverines 1000 due to the different leather hides being used.
    i feel the reserve collection would fare better.
