Katahdin Iron Works® Engineer Boots, Plain-Toe, Cordovan

With a heritage going back to 1901, Chippewa’s have begun to escalate in popularity over the last ten or so years. Priced at a mid range level for built for life boots, their selection represents great value for hardcore durability with a comfortable and quick to break in feel. Do check out Chippewa’s site proper for their full range – but we’re showcasing the Katahdin range.

These beauties are built by Chippewa and outsourced. It’s the perfect combination; the quality and look of a heritage American bootmaker with the legendary customer service of LL Bean.

Hard-wearing and handsome, these Katahdin Iron Works oxford boots are inspired by our original “Engineer Boots,” providing excellent support and stability with comfort too.

“Best boots I ever owned”, “worth every penny”, “good looking comfortable boots” – these are the kinds of comments our Katahdin Iron Works boots inspire in our customers. Is it any wonder they are the direct descendants of boots first developed by our founder, Leon Leonwood Bean? Today they are handmade with passion by the Chippewa boot company in the USA.
