Western Chief products are thoughtfully dreamed up and designed in Renton, Washington and are produced in China.
Our footwear generally comes in whole sizes only. If you are a half size, we recommend sizing up. i.e. a 9.5 would select size 10.
Our boots typically run slightly large to accommodate weather-appropriate socks. However, our garden clogs, slippers, or other non-rain boot items run true to size. If in doubt, please contact our customer service team who will help you determine your perfect fit! You may also view our detailed size charts here.
All our boots are unique because each one is handmade. Most of our women’s and kids’ boots are predominately rubber. The remaining rain boots are the kids’ ‘Light-Up’ boots that are made with PVC and some women’s PVC boots.
Yes! The material is weather proof and helps keep you dry and insulated.
They must be very new, meaning fresh off the production line. A bit of smell is normal and definitely will dissipate over time. The smell is part of vulcanization and is normal and safe for wear. You can’t wash off the smell, it just needs to be ventilated for a few days.
For rain boots, we recommend using a damp, warm cloth to wash boots with a mild liquid dish soap. Mild soaps will not break down the silicone coating on the boots. Additionally, a silicone rubber conditioner can be applied. Silicone conditioners are available from shoe stores and some hardware stores. Air dry all boots and rain gear.
For your sandals, we recommend using an antimicrobial soap and warm water. Hand wash your sandals or use a soft bristled brush to gently scrub away debris. Rinse and air-dry, do not machine wash them.
We recommend storing your rain boots in a dry place, away from direct sunlight. Boots will eventually breakdown and discolor if left in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
If we mark down the price of an item you've already purchased, we will adjust and refund your order accordingly for the difference within 14 days of your original purchase date.
