The Real McCoy's Chippewa® Horsehide Engineer Boots

In addition to the other new items from Real McCoy's we also received a very special edition Chippewa Horsehide Engineer Boot made for The Real McCoy's by Chippewa Boots® who, aside from having a 110 year history of producing handcrafted boots here in the USA, is also the company credited with creating the Engineer Boot by combining a stovepipe leg shaft over an English Riding boot last. The original Engineer Boots were made of horsehide leather however Chippewa no longer offers horsehide in their regular line-up so to make these boots special they're made with Genuine Horween® Horsehide Leather from the Horween Leather Co, also a company with a 100+ year old history and one of the oldest continuously running tanneries in the United States. All of this, combined with Real McCoy's supplied buckles and hardware and dead-stock Bilrite Neoprene Cork soles, make these one of - if not the - most unique Engineer Boots you can find, anywhere. Also available up to size 10.5 which is seldom seen from our Japanese manufacturers. The Real McCoy's Chippewa® Horsehide Engineer Boots are available exclusively outside of Asia at Blue in Green, in store and online here
