my 2 cents worth..

I wear 9D all my boots and sneakers... Wescos, Chippewas, Thorogoods, Converse, PF's

Except these, 9D was spot on, and my Georgia Mud Dogs could have been size 10, they seem to be on a smaller size.

@Costch I would second @Appfaff here on the 11.5D. We've got an 11, 11.5 and 12D in stock at the moment. Happy to work with you to find the most suitable.

Appreciate the input friends, 11.5 sounds like the way to go. Will likely pull the trigger come tomorrow!

These arrived yesterday, beautiful boots! A bit snug but the fit should be perfect after some wear. Quick photo with 634S-18:

Those look fantastic @Costch 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
After seeing yours I’m reminded I already have a pair of black engineers but it may be time to add a pair of brown ones; the black ones must be lonely.
The journey is the objective.

Hey everyone, new member here. I was wondering if someone can comment on the heel slip in this model? I own a pair of red wing 2268 engineer boots in 7, which is my usual size in iron rangers too. The overall fit is good, but the heel slip is extreme and keeps me from wearing then more often. Also they're very roomy around the calf. The description of the Mr. Lou's sounds like they are the exact opposite. I'm just wondering if the red wings just don't fit me good or I might just not be an engineer boot guy at all.

Heel slip is always there with engineer boots. some more, some less. You just need to live with it.
Just my 2 cents worth

Welcome. I’d agree with the above that some heel slip is totally normal. In my opinion, a lot of bullshit is talked about heel slip, like it’s a problem, it’s actually a feature. That being said, Mr. Lou’s are designed in a way that heel slip is minimised.

If the heel slips to the extent that you cramp your toes and literally carry the boot, then it’s too much, but as the others stated, there is always a biting heelslip in engineers. The Mr Lou are certainly narrower in the shaft than the Red Wings.
They are grat boots, you will like them.

For sure. If that happens then they’re the wrong size.

@slubbyphil I have a pair of 8' Wesco Boss boots, which has a little bit of heel slip.  After breaking in the boots, the heel slip became minimal.  I also have a pair of Mister Lou's, and the heel slip on those is almost unnoticeable.
