    Those home-made maiden voyage boots look fantastic.

    I would seriously be proud to wear boots that I myself built from scratch.

    "Nice boots! Where'd you get them?'
    "I made them."

    Boom.

    Unless you have big calves, are there any issues with low, narrow shafts? Still thinking of a pair of Wesco engineers like that with the low heel last. Should cut down on weight and make it more wearable with smaller hems too

    I have to laugh at myself here: I see Dav buy boots that are designedc and built to take serious wear and tear, and I'm shocked he spent that much and then, well..... usedc them as their designers intended. I'll be having my jeans dry-cleaned next... :p

    Nice color, Dav! Here is one more shot of the Wesco harness boots, with my massive Morrisons next to them. I am not a great photographer...

    I can see my beautiful cream Wayfarer out of the corner of my eye from here, and I can't help but think 'is that a smudge on the sleeve...?' and panicking slightly.

    Nice boots. Are they the same last as the engineers just with the harness, or...? The two-tone effect is very striking.

    Thanks. I don’t know if they’re the same last because I don’t have engineers. I’d assume so. They’re not the same as the Morrison’s I’d guess.

    They look like Wesco’s western last. Definitely not the standard engineer last and look rounder/pointier than the motor patrol last.

    Actually, in hindsight, I think the Morrisons are using the western last as they are pointier. I think the two-tone ones are using the "narrow" last.

    For some definition of narrow. I have 3E feet. The last is the same for engineers. There’s a choice of toe style. Check the web site. My ideal is that flat front toe. But these were a screamin deal.

    I think their "narrow" refers to the narrow toe shape. Their standard engineer lasts have a much rounder toe. The lasts they typically use for their engineers are their standard round, bubble toe round, and motor patrol. Infrequently, people customize with the cowboy toe (which I believe is what the Morrisons use). The "narrow" toe is one they use for the Japanese market (from my understanding).

    I find the MP toe as narrow as possibly practical.
