In the 1950's, The Chippewa Shoe Manufacturing Company was one of the first boot manufacture to introduce U.S. made mountaineering boots with the Italian-made original Vibram® soles... In celebration of over 50 years of continuous partnership, Vibram® and Original Chippewa® have collaborated to re-issue cobranded vintage Vibram® soles with the same attention to grip, durability and traction.
In 1980, Chippewa Shoe Manufacturing Company embarked on a new campaign, - "Hand Crafted by people who care". The campaign focused on the skill of the craftsmen who work for Chippewa that are truly responsible for the high quality outdoor footwear by ORIGINAL CHIPPEWA®. Over the years, this campaign has evolved into our company philosophy that Chippewa products use only premium raw materials and are hand crafted in USA. To this day, our U.S. made boots still carry the "Hand Crafted in USA" labels as homage to the men and women that have built the Chippewa brand.
Thinsulate™ Ultra insulation is loftier and thicker than original Thinsulate™ insulation for even greater warmth and comfort, yet still thin enough to allow complete freedom of movement. A mid-loft insulation, it is designed for some of the harshest conditions on earth and retains insulating value in damp conditions.
