Always been a Red Wing work boot fan, but just got some Chippewa work boots and I'm mildly impressed.
Very good arch support and seem well constructed, but we shall see after a few days in the concrete slurry that resides around the hopper of a concrete pump truck. Wet concrete really plays havoc with the stitches on boots, so I prefer a cement weld as opposed to a stitched sole found on higher quality boots, like Danners, etc.    

I've been wanting to try Chippewa boots for some time now. I've got my Muck brand boots for snow and really wet weather. I'm sold on Muck boots after using them in the dismal Ohio winter a few years ago. 

Come summer time I'm going to try some Corcoran boots, I think.

Speaking of boots, I just saw the strangest thing. I looked out the window of my office and saw one of the neighbor's retrievers carrying one of my muck boots around in his mouth. I went out there to get it back and quickly figured out why he'd gotten it out of the garage. The freakin' mice are back and dumped a bunch of dog food in it. Time to set some traps.

Funny how incidents like that end up doing you a favor. Like the idiot up the hill who let a "controlled" burn go overnight last March (illegal here). It really got me to do some serious fire mitigation around the property.

I wouldn't rule a cat out. Have had some good mousers over the years. However, our dog considers cats sport. D-Con for the time being.

Its not a gift. Its a warning!!

Yea like the time my daughter's cat came from the back yard totin a 20" moccasin and dropped it at my feet. Snake didn't have a scratch on em. Why it didn't bite the cat, who knows??? But soon as it saw me it went wild striking full body length at ME!!! Fortunately I was only a few steps from a round shovel. Wanted to hit the cat first but priorities!! After a couple quick chops the cat looked at me like. "wadya do that for???" Reinforces my dislike for cats...............

Our cat leaves a mouse by our garage door a couple times a month in the warmer months.  Pisses me off as I have to clean it up.  But at least he is killing those suckers.

I hate it when cats leave the intestines on the door mat.Then you find them when they squish between your toes when going out the door.

i just started wearing mucks, and i bought a pair of the arctic pro st's, they are pretty nice boots, nice enough i think i will purchase a pair of the much chore st's for the spring time when its muddy. Normally though, i prefer danner's, the super rain forest has to be one of the best boots made...

I won't buy stitched sole boot of any kind, the ones I have bought in the past did not last but 6 months or less.

My only real problem with stitched soles is that wet concrete gets on the threads and starts rotting them out. If I could stay out of the sloppy slurry at the rear of a concrete pump, I wouldn't have any problems. My Danners have held up real well, but if I'm wearing them, I won't get near wet concrete.

Stitched soles as you call them are really known as welted and are far superior to direct attach or glued bottoms. It;s the lime in cement that kills leather boots and there isn't a manufacturer that will guarantee any boots used in cement or for that matter manure either.

Not in my experience.
You'll notice ALL of the top end backpacking/hiking boots have no "welted" sole. The welt its self is a flawed design. Just one example.

I think most high end military boots are stitched.

i know white's and nick's are as well. They are pretty tough wild-land firefighting boots.
 On the other hand, the danner ICH military boot, is not stitch-down construction.

We make boots for the Army and Air Force in the same plant in Merrill Wisconsin that we make some of our hunting boots and casual shoes in. We also make Filson's boots in the same plant.
