Now that is a funny story! Funnier as I can imagine the larger % of boot-loving forum goers having the exact same response. Although you have f&&eked up now by ruining the first sample of leopard print work boots
I've generally had the same and customers with the same initial issue, stick with it, as said previously that will go away and mold to your foot, it's all leather so will shape with the weight and heat applied. Be strong!
There are areas of reinforcement inside White's which make them look lined from above but the only leathers that will come lined in the toe area automatically are the "exotic" leathers or particularly thin one's. If you go non celastic in a dress leather that will also come lined afaik, but any of the above mentioned leathers that I've ordered without celastic toe's I've always asked for lined anyhoo. Toe pokes not a thing of beauty.
Thanks for the responses, they did send me pics but not great angles so hard tell. Coming from mostly wearing US work styled boots the 335 when tried felt like a ballet shoe, like a chunkier look with jeans etc... Thanks though. Will post if I get them made.
Hi all, C&J newbie question. I am wanting a chunkier Chelsea than the current offerings so am wanting to get a custom made one on either the 365 or 224 last (Islay and Chiltern), can you see that working and on which? Much appreciate any responses.
