I'd be surprised if you couldn't sell it for retail if you tried it on. I've seen the Leffot x Viberg shell boots go for more than retail on the secondary market.
If you want a pair of dressy boots that can be worn with a suit, White's is grossly inappropriate. I think even more so is roughout with a navy CXL. If you want boots that are dressy and can be worn with a suit in a pinch in a similar price range, look to Crockett and Jones, Alfred Sargent and Carmina. Alden's shell options are good, too.

As far as I know, the canvas ribbing would be cemented directly onto the insole, and any sort of filler materials would go on top of that, but I can't say for certain what that material is without handling it.
Looks like fiberboard in this video:
