Our second special collaboration boots with our good friends at Wesco. This time around, we build one of our personal faves boots model; no other than the Engineer Boots style. Still with the same energy as the 1st edition, where we utilized a two tone based leather; Horween Burgundy CXL Horsehide and the Wesco’s Signature British Tan Cow Hide.
This particular build takes many favorable details from the recent Wesco’s build, the Mister Lou Boots. Some of the most noticeable features are the slimmed down shaft, the triple needle stitching throughout, and the V-stitch on the backstay. They’re also equipped with solid brass roller buckles and a couple of Wesco’s Customized Dr. Sole half-sole and heel combo. The Motor Patrol 1339 Last runs quite narrow ~ our default width will be an E width.
