That looks like a 8 inch engineer, with brass buckles, single midsole with malt herald sole, and I can't tell if that is black horse hide leather. Hope this helps.

Hi Ed--Is it possible to do something like the engineers you recently posted in the 'Shoes...Age' thread? Sort of the profile of the x Hobo FW10, with a different heel, half sole, double leather, and HH? Thanks!

It's a heel that curves in from the top and then out again.

Kinda like on my SDs. Not that much, though.

Ed we have the option for made to measure right?

If anything email or call Bret and give him a rough idea of what you wear in other shoes, his really nice and replies his emails right away. I'm pretty sure he can help you with sizing.

so are these the same as the boots Kiya has? (last and toebox)

worktoe.jpg?w=614&h=432

or is the toe box less boxy/bulky?

it looks less boxy/bulky from the pic...

would this come closer to the julian boot I posted before or would the new slim service boot come closer to it? (as far as the toebox goes that is)

I'm thinking I would definitely like these with a straight heel and cats paw half sole and heel. A damn shame about the 8-stitch not being an option though.

Would they be willing to work with foottracings for sizing? This would definitely be easier imho.

guess I'm gonna end up going with the worktoe service boot, mocha horween calf leather, straight heel, vibram 705/cats paw heel combo (since I heard the cats paw half soles are not an option from a friend that has just recently ordered a pair of vibergs), all brass hardwear and leather lining...

the 8-stitch is a no go, but is it possible to have the soles stitched and nailed like some of the Japanese boots?

btw, these are the boots of the friend I mentioned (rudyblue)

gorgeous boots!

I think I'm gonna shoot Brett a mail myself too, since I heard from Rob that his boots were made going from measurements of his feet...

Bit of a newbie here, but just got a reply from Brett to an inquiry about a low profile toe on an engineer, and he asked if I could post his response (and the images) here. I'm in for a HH engineer, btw, with the sort of Inventory Oxford toe mentioned below. A 40s-ish look is what I'm going for...Anyway,

"I know if you ordered it with a soft toe, which would allow it to collapse similar to what we did with the Inventory oxford we did, it would change the whole shape. Or we could use a different shape hard toe, basically its fiberglass, a material that is cut out, then dipped into a solution. so if you didn't want to whole toe hard, and only the outside, we can do that easily.

That way the side profile would be slim.

I attached a Engineer last, maybe you can post it on the Superfuture, along with what I just mentioned above.

As well as the Inventory shoe attached."
