Not engineer boots but I recently purchased a pair of Finnish army boots, old style (pull-on). The pair I got were unissued and had direct molded soles. They are as tall as riding boots but the leg through the ankle and lower leg is very full. They are a little loose in the foot, so I've had to use some imagination and thick socks so they are suitable for long walks. I don't have a camera, so I can't post a photo. This is what they look like:  https://www.varusteleka.com/en/product/finnish-leather-jackboots-surplus/30216
They really aren't 'jackboots,' since the leather in the leg is fairly soft. They have proven to be ideal for the swampy places I go walking. The shipping was pretty fast, too, considering that they came from Finland.

I haven't worn those boots, but I do have a pair of Motor boots and I take one size down from Brannock with them. I'm a 10.5 and my 9H fit quite well, though a little wide. I tried on the dress engineers and those are a bit more slim, but I take the same size. I would guess that the other engineers would be quite similar.

What’s the sizing like on MOTOR engineers such as the 1st model? I wear 6.5 in White’s and Wesco and I’m concerned about Motor double sole. Is their sole flexible and able to actually walk in them?

Haha! That should be IKEA's new ad campaign slogan.

It was a very pleasant surprise. They mislabeled it though for some reason.



It is actually from IKEA by the way...LOL

My Attractions lot 444 horsebutt engineers came.

I love the design and last on these and the leather is extremely nice. Construction is pretty good, but there are some flaws as I expected. Definitely happy with these.
