The Jobmaster is the workhorse of the Wesco boot line. Five configurations of this boot are kept in stock.

Combat boots: We're now able to build a custom version of this Jobmaster logger boot as a combat boot with black eyelets, black lacing studs, black stitching and black laces to comply with military uniform regulations. The combat boot version comes with a lower heel as well.

Of course, we can also build them with rough-out desert tan leather (Wesco Color=Burlap) with low heels and a tan Vibram lug sole. These options can be specified on any custom order and are available to anyone... you don't have to be in the military to get these. Click here to see our page on these custom combat boots.

There's also a special version of this boot called the Firestormer™ which is widely used by wildland fire fighters. Click here to go the the Firestormer boot page.

If you can't find the combination of size, width, height, color, sole etc that you want in the stock boots, then we'll make a custom pair to your specifications. For the same price as a "stock" boot you can have a custom boot made to your personal specifications. And there are many option choices and add ons on the custom versions. You just have to be a bit patient while the bootmaker builds your custom boots. Current production time is about 13 weeks .

The Jobmaster Boot:

Redwood lace-to-toe Jobmaster

This is the classic boot worn by loggers, park rangers, forestry workers, wildland fire fighters, engineers, surveyors, oil-field workers, ranch hands, hikers, motorcyclists and mild-mannered systems analysts. If you've ever watched forest firefighters at work, you've seen these boots in action.

Wesco builds these boots on special lasts expressly designed for producing high quality work boots. The foot area is lined by a smooth inner leather layer which contributes to the strength and comfort of the boot. This extra layer of leather complements the careful fit and excellent arch support. Our new customers are often surprised when they discover how comfortable these sturdy boots are!

What's the Difference Between Lineman & Logger Boots?

The Lineman Boot is essentially a Logger Boot with 4 added features which customize it to its job of protecting the boots from poles & trees and from the climbing irons worn by linemen.

Leather Side Patch & Steel Side Plate
Protects the boot from telephone poles, trees and motorcycle shift levers
Steel Breast Plate
This recessed plate in the heel protects against climbing irons
Leather Half Slip
This extra insole component provides additional support in the arch

About ordering from BIG BLACK BOOTS

How do I know what size to order? ( clue -- order the same size as your feet )


About the boots' sizing - how they fit:

Wesco boots are designed to be worn with boot socks. When worn that way they are true to your US men's size as measured on a Brannock measuring device. So order these boots in your true size or ½ size larger to accommodate multiple or extra heavy socks. It's OK for these lace-up boots to be slightly large since the lacing system will help ensure a proper fit. Being slightly large also gives you more latitude in choosing thicker or thinner socks.

About the boot's height:

To determine where the top of the boot will be on your leg, measure up from the heel of your stockinged feet along the back of your leg. This should be done while in a seated position with the knee bent at a 90° angle.

The initial height of Highliner lineman boots and Jobmaster logger boots will be 1" shorter than specified. e.g. if you order a 16" boot, it will come up 15" from your heel.

As they break in, these boots will stay very close to their initial height.

To convert from centimeters to inches, divide the height in centimeters by 2.54

Sizes available when using Wesco's low heel last with the sleeker toe and 1½" / 38mm low heel This is the last used when you request a low heel. Low heels are 2 lifts (½" / 13mm) lower than Wesco's standard 2" logger heel. Boots made with this last fit about a half size large. So you need to order boots made with this last ½ size smaller than you would normally order for a Wesco boot made with the normal logger heel.
