How did Chisos come about?
What's yer favorite thing about being a local Austin brand?
What gives you creative inspiration?
Without hyperbole, Sam Houston put it best: “Texas is the finest portion of the globe that has blessed my vision.” All Chisos boots bear artwork inspired by the natural beauty of Texas.
Where is yer favorite place/places to two-step in Austin?
What separates you from other bootmakers?
The Chisos motto is Do Right, Love Texas. The first part of our motto is not rhetorical; every decision at Chisos gets evaluated through the lense of Do Right, Love Texas. Nowhere is this more evident than the boots themselves. We use our own leathers, hand channel welt our heavyweight midsoles, and refuse to use internal plastics. And every piece is ethically sourced. All of this results in generational durability and unparalleled comfort. The moment you pull on a pair of Chisos, you can feel the difference.
