I’m really starting to think my wife is on to something. She had stated several times ‘ I think you have a problem! ‘ after having to ‘collect my collection ‘ I think she possibly might be right.
Does anyone else have this problem?
The last pic is of the engineer I received and posted about a few months back. They are coming along nicely. Love this thread and obviously love me some Wesco. I wonder if they actually sponser goons like myself.. 😂

Ok it’s been a while since I’ve checked in , but had to share that both my custom pairs have come in and I couldn’t be happier. You say , why two pair? Well because I’m truelly a sicko and once I saw the knuckle dragger green horween from S and S, i just had to have them . made the call to Neil and he hooked it up. Mind you this is right after I just put in an order with Kyle at bakers. Both guys are awesome to deal with, and both went the extra mile to make a customer happy. Love this site and this forum ... its nice to know that I’m not alone in this world.... 😂 "365E6C50-6B5B-439F-9CC3-3FD3D23717C3.jpeg""8655D103-6E01-49DF-9147-6F56E2E09EBB.jpeg""ECE40631-8172-4D24-BB83-32CCE06AF972.jpeg""EBF6C47D-B5F3-4DF6-93EE-BA14528A2361.jpeg"

Well hell ,  I never knew this thread existed until @GingerMagician recently enlightened me.
Recently picked up a piece from him and it went smoothly. And in the past I have picked up a few pieces from others as well. @Clint_D @Appfaff and there was one very knowledgeable guy @Giles that seemed to know a little bit about these fine clothes. :)
Thanks to all mentioned above

The argument of reselling possibilities is strong, also they are cheaper than some regular retailed red wings...

I don't like dumping on RW's, they are in no way bad boots and perfectly serviceable in many situations, but the difference between RW and Wesco is about the same as the difference between Levi's and Iron Heart.

I agree with you @neph93 , but In my experience after purchasing wesco and Ironheart... well, let’s just say I don’t have any RW or Levi’s in my closet. 🤪 on another note , has anyone pre-ordered the SandS engineer with the waxed green hide? Omg they look like they are going to be amazing. I’m kinda bummed cuz I saw the boot after I put my order in for a custom. And now the pic wesco just put on IG of the Horsehide. Good lord
I’m going to go broke. Wesco is killing it and also my pocket book. Those HH look a lot like what Brian is putting out without the year plus wait. Oh man , I might be single soon cuz my wife will be leaving me due to my habits. "E7F306BC-D8F2-45A5-9BA7-B49E0B5E31A1.png""837A6857-2074-49CD-874D-DADC98BED656.png"

One down from sneakers depends on the sneakers you wear and probably isn’t a good comparison.

I’ve had Moc toe RW’s in 10.5D that fit ok (a little wide, a little long) and were the same size as my best fitting Wesco’s (10.5E) so that might be a better place to start.

There is a of course a noticeable difference between D and E width but what width you need will also depend on which boot you are looking at. Jobmasters and standard Boss toes have a wider foot and higher toe box than Packers and the MP toe. Personally I like to go D in the former and E in the latter. Which boot had caught your attention?

Overall, I’d say that if you like the boot and the price is right, a 9E Wesco should be close enough to a 9.5D RW that it is worth the risk. But that is how I think about these things.

Good morning, once again I think @neph93 nailed it pretty close , he must have as much stock in wesco as I do...😁
I have always been curious to know the difference in width because I personally have not felt much of a difference with wescos D and E offering and with a lace to toe even more so because of the ability to tighten wherever you need. I measured mine and it looks like at the widest point it only a 1/8 different. I’ve also found that wesco run a bit more TTS than some other brands. Meaning I have not had to size down or up. The MP toe or flat toe is the one that I would go with E for sure. To answer your question on the EE , and assuming it’s another 1/8 making it 1/4 wider than D .... how much are you saving? I’ve found that the ‘defect ‘ wesco is better than some offerings from others that are full retail. And at a 9.5 size you will always be able to let them go to another, ( re coop) And as mentioned above a thin insole actually to me is preferred as I stand all day at work. It might be worth the gamble of saving hundreds. Anyways that is my two cents.

So this is my actual current line up on the engineer’s , I did warn you that I had a problem!!! 😝
Also with a pair in que at wesco.

They are all amazing in there own way . I just recently got rid of the black wesco in previous post because of a slight fit issue I had. They were great but I’m praying the new one will be perfect. Anyways just another comparison of toe choices amongst other options.

Great post @J-diddy ! I'll take the opportunity to ask you several questions.

Great to see your three engineers lined up to allow comparison of toe types. I generally like the low profile toe engineers but I've started considering the other ones as well. What does Wesco call the three types of toe profile? I may take the plunge this year... Related question, do you take the same size regardless of toe type? Do they fit you the same?

Also, are these all custom orders? I see all three have uninterrupted leather heel stack...which I REALLY like. But I usually see heel stacks with the rubber sole cutting through the heel stack.

Your last boot, the olive LTT is beautiful. Would you mind sharing the build details for it? Is it a custom order? Do you size the same on the LTT as the engineers?

Apologies for so many questions but your post hit on several of my Wesco desires!

Yeah so I think @neph93 answered the toe and sole question well , I will add that the toe style really needs to be looked at with intention also. I ride motorcycles so the flat toe is more forgiving when shifting. He is right the Santa Rosa boot has the bump toe which is great looking but I do not ride much with these. I also bought these bad boys second hand and they were new. Previous owner I believed ordered his size but these are marked 8.5, I wear a 9.5 or 10 in most boots. I took a chance with measurements on these and it paid off. But I also believe that because of the bump toe it worked , if these would’ve been flat ...😐.

As for the wesco LTT , I got those just recently off wesco site, no defects but was on the seconds page.
And absolutely great boot that again I scored on. They are breaking in nicely and are the perfect height for me
8’ . The others are 10 and 6 and these are actually perfect. I do have the build sheet on these but it’s the olive roughout, jobmasters , I believe Vibram 100 sole, red stitching which I love , tan liner. Brass hardware.
I wear a 9.5 in wesco but a 9 in the lofgren. The olive are 9.5e and fit perfect. I just ordered a pair on wesco engineer 9.5e also. It will have a flat toe or as they call it the mp.

Those are fucking amazing. Wow, how old are they?

Yeah thanks , honestly I’m not sure but it was my first pair so guessing 15-20 years or so. Had them resoled
Once. They have stuck around , I’ve had a few come and go but these bad boys are mine forever! They have seen some shit!!!! Literally 😝

Thanks for sharing @J-diddy.

Nice Wescos you have and can’t wait to see the new ones.

I love Kyle and I love Bakers. They have always had top notch service and have always taken very good care of me.
Yes he has always been top notch and great customer service as you said. He even went as far as to track down the dark navy cxl for me and shipped to wesco. 👍
