They have more toe spring than my White's, Nick's, or Vibergs, which I think is a good thing...
I am a little bummed about the sizing...for which I only have myself to blame...I am a 10.5 C on a Brannock...White's, Viberg, and Nick's, I am about a 10 B or C. These 10.5 C Wescos are generous on width and, honestly, too short by at least a half size. I tried on some stock Wesco Boss boots at a local retailer and debated between a 10 and 10.5 in them, but knew I needed a narrower size. I am now thinking the Boss last must have noticeably more toe room than the Jobmaster...again, I just have myself to blame...I was cheap and lazy, trying to save the $99 on having Wesco custom fit me. As it is, my conservative advice would appear to be, in the Jobmaster, if you are lazy and cheap like me, to go a full size over Brannock and two widths down...but, even as I type it, it sounds a bit ridiculous, so my real advice is just go through the formal custom sizing.
Also, I wouldn't say there was anything so special about the Wesco, that I would recommend switching to them from White's, Nick's, or Viberg, unless you had a good reason. They are all fairly equivalent quality, as far as I can tell.
