I would like these in 11 E. Would that be possible. How wide is the E. Just curious. I have a wide foot.

Just my personal experience so don’t take it as gospel, but I’m an E fitting in just about every shoe and boot I’ve ever tried but with the Wesco MP toe I’m between a D and an E.

Sam,

When are you coming here?  We could make sure what size you are and then make....

@Bulatik85, how they feel, after some good use they should be hopefully comfy by now!

Hi @marlin ,

Yes they are more comfy now, no blisters anymore  :D
I think that I didn't yet used them a lot, since I am not walking a lot  :) and I have to wear some more formal shoes during the work-week. But I am wearing them from time to time  ::)
I will try to make some pictures later...

For those who own these: If you had to guess, what would you say is a minimum leg opening you would want to have? My jeans generally have about a 7.25 to 7.5 inch leg opening.

I think you’re best talking about cuts rather than measurements as shaft width is relative to boot size as hem width is relative to tag size.

I can get the 555 cut over mine (jeans W34, boots 10.5D) I like the result, but it isn’t necessarily a look everyone embraces. If you can be bothered you can do a search under my forum name, with key words IH-555 and Wesco. It should throw up some pics.

One thing I will say, the slightly shorter shaft makes them better for slim tapered jeans than I thought it would. My 11” boots disturb the silhouette of the jeans more than these.

I find the 666 and 888 cuts are perfect for Engineers in general. Slim, fitted silhouette without the boots affecting the fall of the jean.

Great points and info, thanks @neph93

Looks great with the 888 so I think I'll be good.
