Received my Wescos a few days ago and have been wearing them non-stop to break them in. I have small feet so they're size 7.5 D I found at Big Black Boots. The size 8 D boots I got directly from Wesco were too large and are now FS here and on the Bay. The 7.5's fit nice and snugly with thick socks and seem to be breaking in well. But, they are heavy, and the sole is so stiff. Just wondering from those of you with these or other high quality engineer boots, how long it took for them to truly become comfy. Just so you know, I was so taken with them, i ordered a custom pair from Wesco in Brown. Oh, BTW, what socks do you all use with high boots? I have over the calf socks from Darn Tough, WigWam, and Smart Wool. None of them stay up. I hate the feeling of the boot shaft rubbing against my shins. Thanks all.
