Ah yep, the plastic bag — know it well :D

Curious if anybody's had a similar experience with Wescos. I love engineer boots but the Lofgrens being my first pair, I've wondered if others are also hard to get on.

I tried the Clinch, which to me are incredibly well made and beautiful boots. I didn't manage to get in this boot. I guess it's not for everyone.

I love these boots. Just a couple of miles on them now. The leather is buttery soft and ages beautifully, although this shifter on the bike scuffs them quite fast.
Sizing can be tricky. In case it helps, the JL are a 10 (stamped inside). I wear a 9 in RW Iron Ranger. They have the same length, but the JL are certainly wider, which is good for me since the IR are rather narrow for my feet. Getting in these JL's however, is quite a struggle having a high arch.
Looking into some Mr Lou's. Anyone has both and could help with sizing?


Here ya go

That’s pretty interesting... I’m surprised he described the Lofgrens as true to size. I wear a 13 in 95% of shoes, and I wear a 12 in the Lofgrens. I was also reading somewhere last night that Wescos are a little more true to size. I think if I ever get a pair, I’ll have to just order from somewhere I can easily return em if they don’t fit. Seems like a lot of varying info out there.

Yep, that’s it. I could fit in a 9.5 Lofgren, actually would be mostly considered as perfect fit for me, but wasn’t available and a 10 is still no issue at all (appr. 3/4 inch from longest toe to end of boot space) The Wescos I would try in 9.5E and 10E. My Brannock is a 10E on the right foot and a 9E on the left.
