Anyone care to chip in with their ¥0.02 worth, if I'm 8.5E in White's (SJ, SD) and Nick's (Robert and whatever the #2 toe last is called), would I go 8.5E or 9E in these?

I really shouldn't... But they are nice... The best dressed hobo in the shelter etc. etc...

I have neither of those brands I’m afraid. I can do RW and Viberg comparisons if that helps..

I'm the same size in White's Semi-Dress, Viberg 2030, and Wesco's standard Jobmaster (10D).  I don't have any experience with Red Wing, though.

I'd go 1/2 size up from your White's size.  I'm a 9.5 in the SD last and 10 in this Wesco last.

Some pictures of my boots.
Could someone advise if this boots are broken in already or not? Just looking to the pictures.

I didn't used them much yet due to weather conditions. When I walk a long distance I still can get blisters. So, I am wondering if they should adapt more or not. Any ideas?

If you haven’t used them much then nothing will change. Looking at the front of the boot, they seem new. The boot hasn’t formed to your foot yet. Ergo they aren’t broken in.

good, that what I was thinking about  :)
I am an office worker, so walking a long distance is a rare situation for me and I have a few more boots in the rotation. + this is the first Engineer boots I ever had and with the double sole...  ::)

so now it is a good weather for such boots, looks like I need to use them a bit more. I see some progress already but looks like they are not yet fully ready.

I guess they should look something like this?

Exactly. I bought a pair in June and have worn mine maybe 30 times. They look like this now:




While not fully broken in they are getting there. This leather combined with the double midsoles takes time.

thank you for the clarification. I have used mine maybe the same amount of times, but I very often have just 5 minutes of walk during the workday(of cause I walk in the building, but I am changing footwear to office pair of shoes), so this is not a real use... need to continue...
