Looked at several stores for this type of shoe, but was not satisfied. So glad I went with Nisolo. As other reviews have indicated, the Chukka is extremely comfortable. Excellent customer service to top it off.

These Chukkas are simple and classic and comfotable. A great value for the price. But what is really impressive is the Nisolo customer service. Outstanding.

Literally bought and returned about 6 pair of chukka boots before I found these. Soft but stable leather, comfortable around the ankles, clean design. Just a great pair if shoes.

Very solid shoe, worth the price. Like other reviewers said, 1/2 size up is recommended. I have fairly narrow feet, so I wouldn't go a full size up though. 1/2 is almost too much, but I know that my regular size would have been too snug.

These are the best shoes I have owned in a long time. Very comfortable, well-crafted, good looking boot. The shipping was also quick. I love Nisolo's personal touch.

From the first time you slide your foot in you know these are well crafted boots - even the laces are high quality. Like everyone else says, the sizing is a little off; I usually wear a 9.5 and ordered a 10 which is just slightly larger than I hoped, but still fits very well. Minimal time to break them in. Absolutely recommend these boots, and well worth the wait if out of stock - they are in high demand for a reason!

Another great purchase from this wonderful company! I first bought the Emilio LE Chukka some months back. I love them, but I wanted something with a little more durable sole and a little more casual. These boots are the perfect compliment to my first pair. I love that the sole is sewn to the boot, too! I've also emailed these guys a couple times for advice in caring for my boots, and they always get back to me promptly. I'd also like to mention that I appreciated the little handwritten note I received in the box with this pair :-) I will most certainly be purchasing from them again in the future.

The second all the positive feedback. I would suggest ordering true to size - I have a narrower foot, and found that my true size fits best. Great shoe, and amazing feel.
by Nick – 1st Apr 2013
Went with full size larger than norm which works but I'd bet a half size larger than normal would be perfect. I've got a somewhat wider foot and that adjustment seemed to pay off. Great classic looking footwear.

I have to admit this was my first online shoe purchase, and I was a bit skeptical. As suggested I went a half size up, and was amazed at how comfortable these shoes are. The feel and fit are amazing! The breakin time went much faster than recommended. I would purchase online again.

They seem excellent so far. Have almost worn them every day since I broke them in - oh, yeah, they needed some old-fashioned breaking in. The only question remaining is durability; they seem to be doing great, but time will tell.
As other people have suggested go a full size larger if your feet are normal to wide and maybe a half-size if they're narrow. I went half a size which is one reason they needed that breaking in, but they seem to have opened up nicely.
by Greg Magner – 14th Dec 2012
I agree with all the complementary things that have been said before, great fit and look. I recommend a full size up if you have a medium +.width.

This is one of the best shoes I've ever owned. Fantastic look/feel. And you can just tell these shoes are quality. The leather is soft and comfortable, and the outsole is fantastic and obviously durable. Looking forward to wearing this pair as my go to shoe.

You have been out-of-stock of this item for a while, and now I know why. what a comfortable and good looking chukka! Dont change a thing!
by Chris Smith – 9th Oct 2012
Ive been searching for the perfect boot for a very long time. The Chavito Chukka is it. The craftsmanship is incredible. There is not a single glue mark or missed stitch. I agree with the other reviews to order a half to a full size bigger than what you normally wear. If you have narrow feet I would say just a half size. If they are snug when you get them hang in there they stretch a lot. As long as I live and as long as this company produces this boot I will always own a pair. Thanks for the great shoes and wonderful customer service.

A good looking and comfortable version of th classic Chukka. Great looking color, leather, craftmanship and comfort.

I ordered one size larger and happy I did. The Chukkas are stylish, comfortable, and well made.
by Zach M – 26th Jun 2012
All of the leather used on this shoe is exceptional. The outer leather is soft, yet sturdy and the inside leather is extremely comfortable. I wear these shoes with jeans as well as dress pants. They fit almost any occassion.

I'm very happy with the purchase! Shoes look great and feel great. I want these shoes in black!
by TSM – 22nd Nov 2011
Straight from the hands of a skilled craftsman, I expected quality materials and a fine finish. When my Chavito Chukkas arrived I was pleased to find that these Chukkas not only look great; they are also extremely comfortable to wear. The finish is clean -no loose threads or stray glue tracks. The materials are high quality - soft leather and good rubber on the sole. There is clearly pride put into these shoes. One suggestion to would-be buyers: see the recommendation to go 1/2 to 1 full size up.
by WJN – 17th Nov 2011
These are great shoes. I was excited about the look of the shoes but I wasn't sure what to expect as far as comfort goes. They have been so much better than I could have expected! I've had mine for about a month now and they have easily become my favorite shoes that I own. I've worn them most days and the more that I wear them, the more comfortable they become. I am so impressed with the quality.
I would definitely encourage following the advice to order a size up. I ordered only a half-size up and before I really broke them in they were a little tight.
But, no complaints here! Best shoe purchase I've made in a long time.

These Nisolo Chukka boots may be the most comfortable shoes I have ever purchased. The quality is excellent and the handcraft design is superior. I want one in each color...They get more and more comfortable every day I wear them. Awesome footwear!
by JJ – 2nd Oct 2011
These shoes are the best I have worn. I wear them out with jeans or casual pants and have had a ton of compliments. They are comfortable and sturdy. Great shoes. In Hoc
