WESCO BOSS BOOTS CUSTOM




Every guy, not matter what their age or occupation needs a pair of Engineer boots. I wasn't happy with what was currently being sold and wanted a pair of 50's looking boots that Brando or Dean would have worn.






So I check out Wesco Boots and found that I could custom order a pair. These are cut to my foot (you get a tracing paper and send it in) and pick your leather, sole and hardware.





I went with a brown with the lowest heel they offered at the time. Brass hardware top and bottom.

I actually just sent these in to be stretched out a little and the Wesco Factory did a fantastic job and it was all covered since I ordered these from them!





The only thing I wish I did to them was get them a tad shorter to mimic the 1950's boots, but that wasn't an option when I ordered these 4 years ago. Now it is and I can send them and have them shortened.


I really love these boots as I don't see others wearing them, they're custom made just for me and they look cool as hell on.

  9. Motorcycle leathers are probably the most important part of your gear, they offer protection for your body as well as adding style to your motorcycle ride. The trick is finding the one that's right for you.

  11. Did you get the inside of your boot lined?

    Also, would I be correct in thinking that that is the 430 vibram? Based from this.

  12. boots are not lined. I don't remember the number of the number of the vibram sole...
