Chopchop's "Unlucky 310" looks great. I was just getting ready to propose a similar 310 -- except with cap toe, lowered heel, and half sole ("The Millwright Boot"):
But don't want to split the 310 vote, so will hold off.
Telling. Even so, I have to say that IRs are the most uncomfortable bootI have ever worn; though I think they look great. With Chippewas I added an insole and it was perfect. And my pre-katahdin pair of engineers lasted 10 years!
I think it looks great on an Oxford, and that Half-Japanese was hard to beat for looks, which I think hooked folks in. I am just hoping the sizing works for me. (I had a size 10 pair of boots on the 110 that was too big, mostly in the heel, so went with 9.5 on the H-J.) Yeah, sizing is so variable and unpredictable..
^^ Very true that the 110 is quite wide in the heel. I proposed the Half-Japanese work shoe and am hoping it will fit. But I agree that the 110 is not an easy one to fit (with some folks being exceptions of course) and is not the most distinctive-looking last. To me, the best casual boot last is the 2045.
Yes, Iron Rangers especially seemed to me freakishly narrow (even the so called "EE"s felt like C widths) and pretty darn long. Otherwise I'd be wearing them right now (though they have become a bit too ubiquitous..).
