BEST BOOTS IN THE WORLD!!!!!! 10 STARS OOUUT OF 5!...
By: Anthony F., Columbia, MO.
I bought my boots in 2004, and they are scuffed up quite a bit but STILL lokk damnn good, and will probably last me the rest of my life. I am in a wheelchair, and needed a pair of foot wear that would support my feet and ankles strength wise, as well as from knocking into crap throughout just normal life. And I needed a pair of shoes/boots that would not cause sores/blisters because of my paralysis as well. I found out that my favorite heavy metal, rock hero, guitarist ZAKK WYLDE, wears Wesco Jobmasters, so I looked them up on the Wesco website, and watched aboutt a 30 min. video on how they were hand made in Seappoose, Oregon (USA, HELLL YEAH!) since 1918, and used onlly 32 employees there to take quality time in the making of each pair of boots. Needless to say, I was hooked. You have I think 4 choices of the stitching you can have being white, black, orange, or red, that I'm sure of, and your choice of brass, nickel, eyelets/hooks. I chose the black stitching and the brass eyelets because they were how they were first made and looked the toughest. If they would have had the black eyelets when I ordered here 9 yrs. ago, I woulda went with the bllack I suppose. To each his own. All more I can say about these insane boots, are that they are the baddest ass looking boot Ive ever seen, other than Wesco's new Composite toe Groundout Style EHBK5710109 boots, which theey sell here, and I am buying next. Whether you are a fireman, police officer, mechanic, biker, construction worker, hunter, or trucker, these boots are for you. AND THEY WILL NEVER DIE! Once you have FINALLY worn out your Wescos, simply ship them back to the company and for 45% less of another new pair thhey will ''rebuild'' youur old boots and turn them into new ones again! Go to Wescoboots.com for the whole info. Yeah. you can go ahead and be a cheapskate, and get some pretty cool looking and sturdy Chinese made boots here, or you can own the HARLEY-DAVIDSON of boots, and not only have some pretty cool bragging rights, for all the reasons I've listed, but, in the end your $374 Wescos will be FAR cheaper than spending all that money on the 3 or 4 pairs of cheaper, inferior, overseas models that will wear out in the time that you will only have ONE pair of Wesco Jobmasters. If you need anymore convincing at thiis point, or not, I would steer you over to the official Wesco Boots webite, and understand quality and superiority in footwear like you have never even thought about in yoour entire life! Iff yoou have read my rambllings up to this point, you are probably an intelligent person, who knoows the long term ramifications of wear inferior footwear, and it's effects on your back, spine, and ankles. Hey, loook, I'm just a guy in a wheelchair that was looking for some good, manly looking boots, that wouldn't reak havok on my feet, given my certain sitation. Now, when someone asks me what kind of bad ass boots I am wwearing, you would think I am a very well payed spokes person for Wesco Boots, which, unforetunately, I am not. I'm justt a good 'ol Missouri boy trying to help my fellow boot loving friends not waste there money, as well as maybe being guilty of promoting some much needed good 'ol American pride and inginuity. From 1918? Well, hell, I'd say that ain't to bad. Now, I will have to conceed the White's Boots are in incredible boot, in their own right, and you might be interested in their American proud, hand made boots, as well, and they've been doing it since before the Ciivil War!!! But tthey're even morre expensive, and foor my money, the buck stops with Wesco Boots. The girls answering the phones here at Working Person, are the kiindest, sweetest wommen you'll ever deal with oover the phone. And delivery is fast!!!! I hope my informative novel helped you out. HA HA!

Worst pair of boots I ever bought....
I bought a custom pair of the Jobmaster Logger Work Boots in September 2013. When I got them around Christmas they didn't fit! The left boot was too short and too narrow in the toe. The right boot was way too short in the heel and I had to struggle to even get it on. I've been back for alterations 3 times, focusing on the left boot because I was told not to worry about the right one, it would wear in. Well, when finally getting the left boot to be acceptable -- not good but just acceptable -- I was finally able to put them to the test.
After many days of struggling with them, I can barely walk on my right foot. My ankle is killing me from being bound to tight, while the heel is hurting too. Very poor customer service, they just kept ignoring my concerns, costing me money and time to drive to the factory for service. Totally unacceptable, they are the worst pair I've ever owned.
