The White's oxfords look fugly to me. I like the Red Wing oxfords much more.

the quality of materials in the Bakers shits on the Red Wings.  I like the RW's as well, but the moc toe looks funny to me from above.

The RW oxfords look like shoes for retarded people.

Sooo, I'm new to this place and was hoping the local White's mavens could give me some clarity on the question of walkability for the various models. I mean distance; I do not own a car and so do a lot of perambulating about the bush. I need something tough, but also something that will not feel literally like walking on sunshine after 10 or 15 klicks on pavement and concrete. 

Opinions?

 

Thanks

Rubber sole + tapered heel = good walkability

These things are heavy. I definitely noticed when walking on hard surfaces, even with the vibram 700.

Oh, that was just on the buildaboot.com site. It always has a 2nd leather option even if you're not using it.

 

So my order has been shipped off to White's. Made a small modification on consulting with Kyle at Baker's. He confirmed that with a half sole (the commando half sole in this case) you'll have about 1/2" less at the heel because there's no sole in there, so I went back to the full heel height.

 

Now I just have to wait 8 weeks for my boots. ffffuuuu.gif
