Chippewa developed their Logger boot for lumberjacks back in 1901. Today, these boots are worn not only by loggers, but by outdoorsmen and other hard-working men. The waterproof steel-toe super logger boot is one of Chippewa’s most popular boots, and it’s one of those boots we just love wearing. In this review, we’ll take a look at the steel-toe Super Logger boot’s comfort, durability and performance
The Super Logger boot features a steel toe cap that meets (or exceeds) ASTM F2413-11 safety standards for compression and impact. These boots also meet ATSM electrical hazard standards.
What does this mean? It means these boots meet the following requirements:
- Impact rating of I/75. Boots with this rating will maintain a 1/2” clearance after an impact of 75 foot-pounds.
- Compression rating of C/75. These boots can retain a 1/2” clearance after 2500 lbs. or greater of compression.
- EH rating. Boots with this rating have electric shock resistant heels and soles that can withstand up to 18,000 volts at 60 Hz for one minute.
- SD rating. Boots that are SD constructed will offer between 106 and 108 resistance when 50 volts are applied by an electrode.
- PR rating. These boots are constructed with a sole and heel area that are puncture resistant up to 1200N.
The Super Logger boot meets or exceeds these requirements, which makes them an excellent choice for most jobs that requires safety boots.
The waterproof features of these boots really stood out to us. They feature Chippewa’s Dri-Lex technology, which uses a unique lining system to keep moisture under control. The lining also makes the boot breathable and quick to dry. And if you’re sure you’ll be working in dry conditions, the Texon 460 waterproof insole is easy to remove.
These boots go even further to keep water outside by incorporating a Chip-A-Tex waterproof membrane to make these boots even more breathable and to keep moisture out. Plus, the seam seal construction keeps your feet comfortable and dry.
The steel toe cap offers that extra protection you need on the job, but Chippewa really goes above and beyond to make sure that your feet stay dry in these boots.

What Customers Are Saying
We loved these boots, but what are other customers saying about them? One thing’s for sure: we’re not alone in liking these steel-toe Super Logger boots. With a high star rating, hundreds of people have reviewed these boots on Amazon. That’s impressive for a pair of work boots.
And you know what really stood out to us? Reviewers talking about how they’ve been wearing Chippewa boots for decades.
We did come across one issue: worn out soles. A few reviewers claimed the soles of their boots starting ripping off after a few months of use. No matter what brand of work boots you buy, there will always be a chance that you might get a fluke pair that doesn’t last long.
But judging from the review (and the photo the customer attached), it looks like these boots were abused – and we mean really abused. So, those who had poor experiences with the soles may have overused the boots or used them for the wrong purpose.
All in all, we give the Chippewa waterproof steel-toe Super Logger boot a thumbs up. They’re comfortable, waterproof and meet safety standards. Made in the USA with high quality leather, these are boots that will stand up to tough jobs and last you years with care.
