Chippewa makes very fine boots. I have several pairs of the traditional 17" black engineer boots. I saw these brown "Bomber Jacket" engineer boots (stock number 27911) on sale, and bought them. They are 11" high, and have a Vibram rubber sole with 1-1/2" heels. The traditional engineer strap has a brass buckle. There is also a brass strap and buckle at the top of the shaft to adjust the fit. The leather is like what would be found on a bomber jacket, thus the name. It is soft and grainy. The boots get dirty real fast, which is fine for a biker boot.
I also own a pair of Chippewa harness boots made of the same leather.
The only thing I found surprising about these boots is that the calf circumference is narrow for a short boot. I had to open the strap at the top of the shaft to pull them on, then close the strap at the middle notch once they were on. They are comfortable boots, but require a bit more of a padded insole than the one provided with them. I wear these boots during hot weather when riding my Harley.
