This model of Chippewa boot seems to be very high quality, but it is made in China. Unlike the other Chippewa snake boots, this one is waterproof. Another difference is that this boot has a thick, comfortable cloth lining inside, instead of a leather lining. I'm 6' and the boots come up almost to my knees, but they are not heavy. The tread is not extremely deep but should give enough traction.

Very nice boots...
These are beautiful boots that appear to be very well made. Chippewa has a solid reputation that can be trusted, but I will note that this model of boot is made in China. I'm 6' tall and these boots come up almost to my knees, but they don't feel heavy. The leather is very high quality. I've only walked around the house, but they feel comfortable. Unlike the other Chippewa snake boots, these are supposed to be completely waterproof. Another difference is that the inside lining is not leather, but a thick, soft, material. I ordered a size 10 which is my normal size, and I believe that it is the right fit. I did think about trying a half size smaller, but some slipping in the heel is normal before they are broken in. The tread on the bottom is not extremely aggressive, but should be fine in slippery mud.
