Okay cool, I guess I just misinterpreted Kyle's post. Cathpah, I've definitely checked out those Distressed Bounty Hunters. Distressed is a popular choice (and for good reason), but it's rare that Brown or Black Smooth show up. I think at least 90% of the black White's I've seen are CXL. I think the Distressed wears a lot differently, at least on a superficial level, than the other two colors. It ain't called Distressed for nothing.
So much discussion about CXL and Dress leathers lately. Does anyone have experience with White's Oil-tanned leathers (aka Smooth)? I'm fairly certain the Black and Brown Smooth are the standard work leathers for the Smoke Jumper, Packer, and Farmer/Rancher boots, as I believe they are the thickest White's has (along with Distressed). I was surprised that when Kyle popped in recently he recommended a liner for them...I always figured they were so thick there was no need....
Hey, come on now! I don't think you guys are impressed enough with Louie's machine. Maybe he's not posting enough images of it. Why would you pay full price for the boots you want that are the correct size, when you could be paying less for ill-fitting boots and forcing them to fit with this one weird trick! Shoe companies HATE him!
Yeah, I think that's your best bet, though I don't think too many people necessarily are making sizing decisions based on aggregated, anecdotal sizing experiences, but people still run into sizing issues occasionally even with foot tracings, with no error to blame. Feet are weird.
People in a Wesco forum were saying to size up a full size from White's. I've also read posts that say White's Bounty Hunters size differently from Semi Dress, despite both being on the same last. All the contradicting info (which I'm sure is all accurate on a case-to-case basis) makes sizing the first pair rather tricky...especially after hearing horror stories about Wesco's $100 custom size feature. Not to mention there are probably 15 different lasts between the 3...
Someone's gonna be bringing in 2015 in style!
...maybe just disregard that pair.
Here's an album.Also, I skimmed / read through most of this thread, and while I caught a few mentions of different toe numbers referring to the last shapes, I couldn't find a lot of info. Can anyone give a little explanation of Nick's lasts and toe shape numbers?Edit: I found the toe shapes in the FAQ. I'm still wondering if the toe shapes each have a different corresponding heel height. Often if you go with a last with a narrower toe, the heel tends to be higher (eg a...
Those look great! The 9" height works well, and doesn't look awkward the way the 7" boots sometimes do. Also, the block heels are really kept in check, unlike a lot of them that extend a good 3/16" out. Has the toe box of the distressed pair flattened out with wear, or are they soft-toes?
Oh, well in that case I guess we're talking about two different things...I am wondering which last White's uses for these puppies:
