Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 70

post #1036 of 5004

Thanks for the help and the beautifull pics, daizawaguy, this is helpfull. By the way, I see that you're from Tokyo, and I'm going there in february for buziness, I was thinking to take the chance to seek some White's SD... Couldn't find a dealer on White's website, but I know that there are some dealers in Jp. Can I ask you what is the best spot in your opinion?

Arigatogozaimasu!

Welcome! There are dealers (Free and Easy is the name if I recall) but they go for Yen 98,000 - thats Dollars 1200 or so!! With those prices, all mine obviously are from Bakers!

 

You will love the Jeans selections here though - the made in Japan selvage are not cheap, but the very highest quality...enjoy

Read up on White's here and got me some SD in dress brown ordered today. Hope to have them shortly after i get back from Greece, makes the wait easier...thanks for the info

Thanks! I was planning to order through Baker's anyway, but I'll go and check and enjoy. "Being on diet doesn't means you're not allowed to read the menu..."   plus the fact that I've also been seeking japanese denim here in France (like Flathead for ex), with no success till now. So definitely a good help. Thanks again!

Absolutely Tavoz - you'll see some nice original leather combinations there. It`s near Jingumae subway station, just up the road from the BMW shop opposite the rugby stadium.

 

Here are some close ups of my Whites `denim edition`...

Wow... thanks, both are really awesome. This is real craftmanship. And the dark cherry buffalo is just amazing! Is the sole on this pair a 269? And standard height for the heel, right?

post #1043 of 5004

No the sole is the standard 700. I believe the other would be a slightly thinner profile. Yes, the heel is standard. It`s also a two tone, the cap and back is dark cherry, and the middle is dark brown, although the difference is too small to notice - I guess they did some grading to match the tone...

Well I spent the whole day going through all 73 pages of this thread. Wow a lot of nice boots with lots of colors and choices I must say. Are any of you guys on your feet 10 plus hours a day? I currently wear the ecco track 2 boots and I usually plan on buying a pair every year I have had great luck with them and it is hard finding a size 14. I like the whites boots and was wondering if the best way to get the best fit is to go to the factory. I was thinking the the vibe 269 sole would be the best sole for this much walking and being on your feet all day I dont know much about these boots so Im thinking of going to the factory Im sure they can show you all color combos etc there. Thanks for the information

If you get the right fit, you`ll be fine. They have a highish arch, so its crucial to get the fit. I went through 2 par before I found my perfect fit. Fortunately there is a good second hand market!

Def. get the fit right. IMO and I know somebody else has similar experience, if it hurts when new (esp. on non-cxl leather), chances are you`re in the wrong size
post #1048 of 5004

I would definitely try them on somehow, from someone who has stock, or has experience in fitting them. A good fit, and they are the best boots in the world. A bad fit, and they are a regret. But with all those widths available, you should be set up pretty soon. Welcome to the world of Whites

post #1049 of 5004
If you need arch support and are on your feet long periods, these boots are for you. That all said, I've bought and sold two pairs of semi-dress boots. They fit very comfortably, but the high arch support gives a quite different feel than most other work boots and are rather bulky/heavy. Hard to describe, you'd have to try them on.

I like them in theory, because their aesthetic is perfect for my wardrobe, but didn't really wear them that much. On a daily basis I preferred something lighter and less bulky. However I will likely swing back the other way and pick up a pair if I found one at a good price.
