    Shoes that look better with age...

    I have had my smokejumpers save my ankle and possibly more when carying doors around on construction sites. I'm likely to replace mine with Wesco Jobmasters when the time comes since I like a lower arch in my boots and my other pair of Wescos have been getting used way more for work lately.

    Sweet sounds similar to mine. I got a pair of the 7400 in the wider MP toe last.(I had to ask if they would make it first as it is supposed to be a "stock" build)

    May I ask what build you went with for your boss boots?

    If you are interested in the offerings from Wesco they do offer making a custom last for your foot. Also Role Club offers custom sizing. While the cost of the Role Clubs are higher in pricing up front Wesco's are likely to cost similar if you do go the custom last route.

    Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    I recently got the Flat Head in XXL and the rite stuff in XL as well as Merz B. Schwanen in XXL. I found these ones work for me. Also the IH 2017 model is 46-47" in the chest in XXL. All of these are all tubular. I also like the Whitesville pocket T but, I don't know if they are loopwheeled.

    The soft unstructured toe on mine looked similar prior to them resoled. They were a custom order that I got measured for.

    I think is just the way the soft toe is sitting was giving him that idea. I also broke inn my smokejumpers on construction sites.

    Ahh. I never seen that collection before myself. Typically I see Chippewa boots in general work boot shops.

    I they are still around. They seem to be a more budget friendly made in USA brand like Throgood but, seem to be more geared towards work boots only.

    That is the reasoning that lead me to going with the SRP779. The balance of utility and aesthetics as well as the robustness.

    I have herd that you can insure pretty much anything granted your are willing to pay for it and a person who can write up the policy. I have herd of high end glass art that is used for smoking being insured as art.
