Attention all fashion-forward festival lovers. Want the latest in comfortable festival attire for men? Look to the original Chippewa boot, a brand founded in 1901 that manufactured boots for American engineers, pilots, hunters and army soldiers. Chippewa was the brand of choice in combat boots for World War I and World War II, and is credited with creating the engineer-style boot during the 1930s. In an effort to promote American-made products and combat outsourcing of the current manufacturing labor force, Chippewa continues to produce different types of boots for everyday use and only utilizes American laborers.
Chippewa’s goal is to capitalize on American authenticity and to promote “the positive effects manufacturing products in the United States has on our nation’s economy, employment and the environment.” Made for the rugged outdoors and intended for wear for an extended period of time, Chippewa boots are designed for comfort and durability while exhibiting classic fashionability. These boots are perfect for the long trek from stage to stage at your favorite music festivals. So strut your American pride with a pair of these original Chippewa boots while comfortably standing for hours watching your favorite artists.
