Someone from Wesco Japan must have read the replies.  Apparently there is 6 last styles. ???

Six you say? I guess they would be the following:

MP
Morrison (Western)
«Narrow» (MP variation)
Boss
Bump toe (Boss variation)
Harness

It doesn’t help, but Wesco Japan has different names for some lasts/toe styles than the ones used by Wesco USA.

Been working on my deck project in some ancient SRs and my custom Lace Ups. I swear, aside from the toes wearing down kinda fast when kneeling, suede is an idea fabric for working in dirt, sand and sawdust. Just let them dry, brush with a suede brush, and good as new.

After a few weekends of work, gave the smooth out sections and mid soles a little oil too.

Just some mink oil.

I rotate mink oil and leather conditioner as Mink oil has a tendency to cause cracking if the leather gets dry, but I do like it’s waterporoofing abilities.

I bought another Wesco, this time Romeo.  I call it the “Un-Roller”.  Basically the Roller Mag collab without the Roller stamp on the navy leather insert.  Will receive in August.  My other Horsehide boss boot order comes in July.

The Romeo price wasn’t too bad either.

Anyone know if wesco can build a romeo on the 9109? I think thatd look cool but im not sure ive ever seen a pic of one w a bump toe.
I feel like I’ve seen it done but that maybe only because it should be a thing. I see no reason why not. Drop Chris@Wesco and email and ask. Let us know what he says

For anyone that is interested, I contacted Chris about the inquiry of whether a romeo can be built on the 9109 last. His answer was basically yes, they can do it, but it would need a full midsole and half slip. Based on his answer and the photo he sent me, I think his answer assuming that I was going to build a pair using a wedge sole.

I would probably build mine with a honey lug, and he sent me some photos of romeos with honeys but I was still fuzzy on whether the honey lug with the 9109 would still require the half slip + midsole. He was not able to find any photos of romeos, regardless of sole, built on the 9109 so it must be a rather uncommon request.  When I'm finally ready to drop the cash, I'll bug him more about a photo specifically of a romeo on the 9109, as I don't think I would buy a pair without seeing at least one visual.

It took me an awful lot of time to share but I got these romeo's built in fall 2019. Its brown horsehide. The leather is superb (photos do not do horsehide justice) "20200708_085312.jpg""20200708_085410.jpg""20200708_085438.jpg"and the boots are great. It is a helluva lot of heel for an ankle boot - Chris assured me that getting the bump toe necessitated all of it, the full heel stack plus the full midsole and the half slip. Overall very happy, although depending on how they wear in I might go with a wedge sole on the next sole.
