See the new Engineer
Boot History section. A recent acquisition of a
1943 Chippewa catalog and a 1980's letter from Chippewa have
shed some light on the origin of the classic engineer
boot. WESCO may also be an early manufacture of this
style. Does this style go back to the depression days or
even farther? Check it out. A 1928 Chippewa catalog
has been acquired.
A pair of 17" Chippewa engineer boots
has just been received that is very possibly from the 40's and
most definitely from the early 50's.
As you look through the next few pages of
jackets and boots that follow you will see just a very few of
the more unique and favorite jackets and boots. Hope you
enjoy the pictures and this brief journey through biker and
motocross history. Maybe you will also enjoy the pictures
of other types of boots including Fire Boots, Army Boots,
Lineman Boots, and Cowboy Boots.
Also check out the facts and trivia page
featuring unique and identifying features of various kinds of
