Chippewa Boots offers three distinct lines of its acclaimed logger boots, with varying features and price points. Billy Lovell of Chippewa explains the differences between each of the company’s logger boots in its “What the Tech” video series:
Lovell described the logger boots as a “good, better, best” scenario. The least-expensive Chippewa logger is from its IQ series.
He says the IQ logger features a rubber lug outsole with a logger heel, two rubber midsoles, a PVC welt, and heavy-duty leather in the shaft.
“But in the gusset and collar, we use different materials to reduce the price point of this product.”
The mid-priced logger is the Sportility line:
This logger boot contains a high-performance Vibram Tacoma logger outsole, a rubber midsole and a leather welt, which add more cost to the boot. It’s also waterproof, is insulated, and is made of heavy oiled leather.
The “best” of the logger line, Lovell says, is the Super Logger.
It also contains a Vibram Tacoma logger outsole and a waterproof insole. It also features a heavy-duty leather storm welt, heavy-duty leather, and higher-quality collars. It features a Dri-Lex lining to wick away moisture from your foot. The boot also comes with heavy-duty waxed laces and heavier hardware. The boots also is specifically rated for electrical safety.
“This is the fully loaded, handcrafted-in-the-USA model,” Lovell said.
