you can give the truman a shot and just return them if they don't feel right, but i think you'll run into the same issue as me desu. your toe splay looks almost identical to mine. the length and ball width was perfect by going down half a size from brannock on length and true to width, but the rubbing on the big toe was ultimately a deal breaker. i unfortunately didn't figure it out until i tried to work in them and realized every time i did anything besides normal walking it was rubbing on the knuckle of my big toe.

i see what you mean, without the insert it just feels like a solid counter. the insert raises my heel up just enough that it causes the lower part of my heel to rub against the top of the counter when walking. i'll just wear them without inserts for a couple days and see how it feels after that.

>The issue that I had with the Wescos is that even with the “perfect” size, the shape of the boot was extremely uncomfortable
I bought Wesco Mr. Lous off the rack, and they're without the slightest hint of irony the best-fitting boots I've ever owned.
The best-fitting leather shoes I've ever owned, period.
I have a size 13-14 US (46-47 EU) and apparently my feet are pretty wide at the front of the foot. I bought size 11.5 E Wesco Mr. Lous because that was the biggest they had, and they fit like no other boot I ever owned.

Before the Wescos, since boots in Europe tend to have narrow lasts and pointy toes, I always had to either:
1) deal with the fact that the front of my foot and toes are getting squeezed from the sides
2) buy a larger size for the extra width; which obviously fucks up the look and rest of the fit, and I could never find those sizes anyway.

Not so with the Wescos.
I don't have any experience with other makers, but it's almost impossible to imagine a better fit.
With some thicker socks they fit like gloves, but are a little harder to get off.

Somewhat related to boots. What the fuck is the difference between the various socks from Darntough? I mean those for example that are all "midweight cushioned". I can't really find a difference between lets say the Darn Though Hiker Boot Midweight with Cushion and Tactical Boot Midweight with Cushion, except for the colors.

don't go for leather soles on PNW boots
leather soles wear out really fast and need frequent resoles, stitchdown/handsewn stitchdown doesn't lend itself well for frequent resoles so you want a long wearing sole on them, any of the vibram rubber soles should be fine
you can add toppies aka sole savers on leather soles by a cobbler and have that wear out instead of your leather soles, but it's a hassle

also if you don't really know what the options on custom boots mean or what the purpose is, it's best to skip over them
i know it's tempting to go all out with options, when you get the opportunity, but it's better to stay simple, because you can ruin a boot without knowing

unstructured semi dress is on the left, celastic on the right, but its the 4811 last with has a taller toe than the semi-dress last

the one without celastic the toe collapeses, sometimes in really ugly and unpredictable ways, but it's more comfortable and less restrictive on your toes

>> No.17901534

If you have sized correctly / the last works for you, then you shouldn't notice the structured toe anyway. I actually hate how my big toe pushes on the leather on unstructured toes.

>> No.17901541

Thanks I’m leaning structured toes. Last thing I’m split on is the price difference between hand stitch semi dress and stitch down 350. I do prefer the lower cut semis and like that they’re hand stitched but don’t know how much important the leather options are. Here are the options
>semi dress
Hand stitched, hawthorn chromexel leather $560
Stitch down, double shoot leather $460
Stitch down, hawthorn horse rump $560
I’m thinking brown or British tan for the color

>> No.17901543

Anyway, where is the outcry when PNW makers use celastic toe stiff? Stop being a cuck and use leather like Viberg.

>> No.17901546

Not possible for me because my right big toe is giant, so there is not enough volume for it without structure.
who care, i have boots with both and i don't notice the difference.

>> No.17901548

the double shot leather is similar to chromexcel but nicer, just pick that for the semi dress if its MTO.

>its cucking to give the required information to complete a sale

This makes me lean towards getting the 350 cruisers in stitch down to save $100. I don’t have anything against 6” boots. That’s all I’ve ever worn for work. I thought the price difference went towards a better quality leather with the chromexel.

I'm good on Soller 10.5
I'm good on TLB 10.5G

All of these are wide lasts

I bought Forest EEE 11 and it's actually a little narrower than all of the above, despite being half a size up and "EEE".
I bought 11 to use it with thick socks. It's not too narrow or anything, it's still a good fit but definitely not an EEE last at all.
I like how the instep/facings close, it's a near perfect fit there.

get the semi dress in british tan cxl if you're buying stock models
handsitched is the better option and it's worth the extra money
chromexel and double shot are pretty simmilar, it's basicly the same thing offered by 2 different tanneries, generally double shot is the more hipster version of cxl and people generally prefer it for more consistent creasing patterns

Yeah, I’m not going to assert that the Wescos are inherently bad boots by any means, but they just were not the best last for my feet. Since I live pretty close to Scappoose, Oregon I even went to the Wesco factory to get sized perfectly. After purchasing a pair of Mister Lou’s from Bakers and wearing them in for 6 months, they never really became comfortable. The most uncomfortable part of the boot was the heel counter. It just has very little shape and volume, and it is in fact made with thermoplastic material. Apparently they never used to do that with their counters, but I guess they’ve more recently been using inferior materials that way. I really wish they fit me because I like the Wesco look and I like how robust and tanky they are, but when I was still getting aches and blisters on my heels after completely breaking them in, I had to just sell them

interesting because that's my exact complaint about my john lofgrens, the heel doesn't fit as well as on my wescos

>> No.17901688

Yeah, it could be a many different things. Perhaps it’s the fact that all of our feet are shaped differently, or maybe I just happened to get a pair of Wescos with shitty QC. If I didn’t have the heel cup issue with the Wescos, I would have immediately sold the Lofgrens. The Maryam horsehide was awesome on those things

>90 degree heel
What does that mean?

In my experience, all commando and even ridgeway soles (including OG ridgeway and Carmina 'ridgeway') are clickety clackety EXCEPT Carmina's "country" soles which are made from hevea milkers.
These soles are dead silent, even more than sneakers. But you can squeeze them with your finger, I'm not sure they will last very long.

All low profile soles like dainite, Carmina's 'not dainite' and TLB's City are very clickety clackety.
I have no shoes with leather soles but I do have loafers with leather sole + topy. Also very clackety.
Pic related, it's the Carmina milkers sole.

i am 9.5e, but closer to ee. i got a 9e, and while the length is good, the width is still too tight after breaking them in. i can wear them fine if i am not doing any major activity, but even just walking around town for a full day leaves me feeling sore. i maybe could have gone down to an 8.5 for length, but i prefer a roomier fit and feel like it would have left me too tight in the toes.

go half size down
i'm 11D on brannock and have size 10,5D MPs
the fit is perfect
going full size down and E, just means you get the same width as half down, but shorter in length
personally i don't have excessive toe room in length in mine and if i did what they recommend my toes would be touching the front of the boot

don't fuck around with sizing when ordering custom

>> No.17901863

I had a similar recommendation from baker. I had a similar recommendation from another American boot company like Carolina’s and the boot was too tight.

If I order from whites is it possible to return them if they don’t fit right?
