When helping a buddy (a motorcop who also rides a personally-owned Harley) with some boot shopping recently, and having raved for years about the comfort, durability, and quality of Chippewa Firefighter Boots, I was shocked when he…
…fowarded me an email from the retailer from whom he ordered a pair of these boots that said,
Unfortunately the Chippewa 8-inch slip resistant steel toe trooper boot 27422 has been discontinued.
We have contacted the manufacturer and they have informed me that they will no longer be making this product.
I don’t use profanity often, but Chippewa: WTF?
Note to my loyal booted biker blog readers, there still may be pairs of these boots available from on-line retailers before stock is depleted. If you have ever considered ordering these boots but haven’t done so, place your order today from a trusted source/retailer.
I do not have a specific recommendation of a boot retailer to use — retailers I have bought boots from before are either sold out or have fallen into a bad state of inventory management and accept orders but put them on extended back-order status.
Man, what a shock. These are really GREAT BOOTS! (I even have an entire category on this blog about those boots!)
Life is short: get your Chip Firefighters before you can’t!
