^For those with the same size white's and wesco's...Do you have any issues with the toe, or are you getting customized fits with larger toe boxes?

No, not really.  I've had White's Semi Dress with both the standard last with celastic toe box and the Swing last with an unstructured toe box.  No problems for my toes whatsoever.  My Wescos are Jobmasters with a standard last, and if they didn't have steel toes, I think they'd be just fine, too.  As it is, the big toe of my left foot is compressed just a bit, but not horribly so.

My next pair of Wescos will be standard toe and unlined, and will be much easier to wear.

Like Chris I have had White's SD in standard last and swing last, I have had Bounty Hunters with a double elastic cap toe and my Wesco are packers on an MP last. No issues to report at all.

^My fears are confirmed...I must have strange feet that require awkward sizing, at least on Wesco's...Shame!

Hey Aho, I have semi-dress and wesco packers (same factory store one you had). Wesco are definitely shorter in the toebox in the same size. I can feel the end of the boot if I have thick socks on. Had to do away with the insole.

I'm not sure.  There are a load of pairs siting in the factory waiting to ship to me, I'm not sure what they are, I'm waiting for confirmation....

Damn, I missed the preorder on these. Not sure how that happened. I hope there are some left over.

@veloaudio You can still go ahead and perorder.  I'll shut it down in a week or so.  Can't guarantee that they will be here for the beginning of the DWC now though...

looking at all those wesco foot patrol boots leaves me with a feeling of being ten years old, staring up at the top shelf in the news agents at all those big bottles of sweeties  :)

Great, thanks G, I'll be looking for a pair of the brown roughouts in 10.5 E and will try to visit to make sure I get the right size
