We have a deep and abiding love for horsehide, there's just nothing quite like it when it comes to making up a pair of engineer boots. When we found out that Wesco could get in on a small batch of black Horween Chromexcel, we jumped on it to make these.

The template is early engineer boots, with a nod to the Japanese "Narrow" model, with a narrower shaft. We left the edges of the leather natural, with black topstitching. We made a new custom die in order to have a truly vintage accurate pointed instep strap.

The outsole stitching is undyed white, and the midsole edges are left natural, all sitting on the Vibram 269 outsole. To stay true to our inspiration for the boot, we used the MP1339 last, aka the "narrow" last.

Not surprisingly, the last that these are built on runs narrow, so the E width wears like a D. To size these, you would take the same size as you would in the Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger.

  • Black Horween Chromexcel Horsehide 
  • 10" height from top of shaft to top of heel
  • Stitchdown construction - fully rebuildable 
  • Nordic brass roller buckles
  • Custom pointed strap
  • Vintage triple stitching on uppers
  • #269 Vibram® sole with natural edge
  • Unstructured toebox
  • Take the same size as you would in Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger

Further details

Since their founding by John H. Shoemaker in 1918, Wesco has quietly been building world-class boots at their factory in Scappoose Oregon. Three generations later, they are still owned and operated by the Shoemaker family, despite nearly losing the entire business during the Great Depression.

As with all Wesco boots, these feature a spring steel shank, double layers of leather over the foot and in the heel with leather insoles and midsoles (rather than cork). The leather is "directional" cut, meaning that each piece for each boot is cut from the best part of the hide for that piece, rather than trying to fit the most parts per hide. And, of course, every pair of Wesco boots is fully rebuildable, making them a true investment in footwear.
