I own Viberg and Attractions HB engineers, both in size 8. I still need bags to put on the Vibergs after several wears and Attractions are easy with that snap. I have a rather high arch.

From reading this thread and other engineer boot threads, it seems Attractions and Lofgrens are easiest to put on? Any other brands that are easy from get go?

Anyone kind enough to proxy them from their homeland to the UK?
Is the sizing advice still go a size down? My assumption is that the sizing is US, so would an englishman buy true to size?

All pointers gratefully received


I had an early run of the horse butt Attractions. The size 10.5 was too big for me, I'm an 11 in White's Alden Red Wing and the like. They are fine looking boots but I didn't particularly like the angle they are build, it caused my foot to slide forward into the toe box. Attractions were fine dealing with through email.

Attractions horsebutt are a great choice. I love mine. I go to Japan twice per year. Next time is February, I've offered to pick up stuff for U.K. Bros before and the offer stands, but you probably wouldn't want to wait so long...

As far as sizing goes: mine are lot269 and I got a 10. I wear 9.5 in red wings and that size may have worked in attractions but the shaft is pretty narrow and I couldn't get 9.5 on in the shop even with the old plastic bag trick.

They are a complete bitch to get on when new, literally I ended up sweating and cursing.

Ah bugger, time to stop fighting it. I'm a clinch size 12, not 11, so these boots have to go (thank god I have some size 12s I'm wearing in the meantime, along with my RMCs!).

A last quick clean and soft cloth polish before they hit the market. Beautiful boots, hate to have to sell.
