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.
