yes, the color together with the hand-stitched outsole construction (the only other bootmaker doing this is Brian from Role Club afain) made me choose these...

At least for me there‘s a bit too much room in the heel with Clinch, at least for persons with narrow feet like me. I suppose (and have read) that other people with wider feed struggle more with the narrow forefoot, so the CN shape/last from Clinch is certainly not for everyone. Don‘t get me wrong, they‘re great boots but they could be shaped better. Maybe the modified last offered via S&S could fix this issue but I think that the heel design in these is not modified so only the forefoot is less narrow.
In general, I think engineers are not made for walking long distances, the foot is not tied as snugly as in laced boots. But this is a general aspect of engineer vs. lace-up boots...

Yeah, that‘s what I meant! Would definitely jump on if Mike‘s offering these one day.
Also wouldn‘t mind if Giles does some together with Josh  8)

In terms of fit, Clinch mainly offers their narrow CN last (S&S got a series with a wider last) which is definitely narrower than Lofgren.
I have long and narrow feet so their CN last suits me well in the forefoot. So in my opinion the fit of Lofgren and Clinch are not similar. Can‘t tell the rather new US-modified Clinch last for S&S.
In addition, Japanese seem to have more bulky heels... I have some heel slip in my boots and wish to have a narrower heel box or a more contoured heel pocket as in my Vibergs. The Clinch heel is not that contoured...

depends on the last... Viberg‘s 2005 provides more room than the 2030...
The 2030 ist narrow in the forefoot area, the 2005 is wider. If you have rather wide feet, go for a 2005 engineer from Viberg or the Lofgren. Viberg engineers are available in both lasts...
I‘d suppose there‘s not much difference between Lofgren and Viberg‘s 2005...

What you should also consider with engineers is heel shape. Viberg provides one of the best heel „pockets“ thus reducing possible heel slippage to a minimum.

Would love to have a Viberg heel in my engineers...

Don‘t worry!
I‘m the same, XXL in IH Shirts and my Townes denim XL fits great (still longer in the body)...
