    Interesting.

    The challenge is that once one moves into the $600+ range a bunch of other options emerge (custom Wesco, standard and strange collaborations, attractions etc.).

    What are your favorites engineers?

    I only have my attractions now. Had whites and wesco.

    But from what you say, you will not like attractions. They are a sleek shape, low volume toebox etc.

    Good to know. What are the reasons?

    Regardless, I have been eyeing up Wesco 7400 engineers for years now. I have no way to try before I buy which is why I have not pulled the trigger yet. That and I am unsure if my jeans will fit over them. I wear pretty slim fitting jeans.

    They're just not as well made in my opinion, especially the stitching on the half sole doesn't run back far enough allowing it to flap, no matter how often I reglue it. Plus as mentioned the shafts are wider than my others.

    Any experience with real mccoy's Chippewa engineers? I've got an interesting opening for a pair.

    Colin,
    I have two pairs of the 7400’s (brown and black) and they are great boots. I find they run narrow so I bought an “E” width instead of the “D” I normally wear. The shaft on these boots is narrower than my Nomads, but it still might be a bit wide for skinny jeans.
