Does anybody have any direct links to 8 inch Wesco Boss Engineers on foot? I want to see if they look weird, I know I don't want a 10" boot but not sure if 8" is too short for my build.

There should be so many more posts in this thread. Wesco is so underrated.

Agree with you, they have really cool long format videos on their IG page where Chris answers questions live.

I just ordered a pair of 8" shorty Boss engineers in charcoal but can't decide if I want the bump/bubble toe or not. If anybody has any pics I'd love to see.

Here are my freshly saddle soaped and VSC conditioned Axebreakers (standard & strange edition Hendriks) in brown hh. Kind of a boring leather tbh but the boots are very comfortable with great arch support.

They're certainly my favorite. You'd have to spend at least twice as much on Role Club or Clinch to find a better looking boot than the Hendrik. Such a well balanced boot aesthetically and built like a tank.

Their MP toe engineer is the best value engineer at their price as well with the possible exception of Moto.

I've got 3 boots of theirs and plan to get 2 more with at least one being essex.

I currently have the black HH Hendrik from S&S on order since I missed out on the brown HH a while back.

I'm pretty sure the next build I'm going to get is a 7" Packer in their regular brown leather to try out the western toe shape.

I have a pair also; agree that the leather doesn't have a lot of character. It is nice, but no pull up nor interesting veining showing through. Compared to my #8 White's HH Bounty Hunters, which show a ton of character, these are far more more muted.

As someone in the UK who is considering a pair of White’s I was also wondering how Wesco compare?

Iron Heart have a selection and I like the look of the jobmaster in British tan.

One of the big appeals of Whites to me is the arch support and I was wondering how the Wesco compare in support and just general comfort?

I hear Wesco are supposed to be better finished off.

Thanks
