Thanks, Chippewa is looking pretty good. I want a pair that I can beat up without feeling bad about it. I have several pairs of boots but for the most part they are to nice to subject to really ruff use.
Size? I saw some really cool Chippewa in a color called “leather jacket” brown on eabay for $90 but only in larger wide sizes.
FWIW, my Chippewas are supposedly an E / Wide fit, but on me (and I'm very much a Medium / D), they're bang on right. In fact, the left boot (my larger foot) is going to take a bit of stretching through wear before I can wear a sock of any thickness in it. Was worried at first I'd bought the wrong size!
