I'm new to this forum. I've been thinking for quite a long time to get some White's custom SD, but I live in france, so no way to even see one pair in real or try it, only google pic and you guys, to help me make some choices... By the way, this thread has been really helpfull for me, so thanks to all of you, reading your posts allowed me to figure out a lot of things. Now I've made my mind.
But I still have one point to solve, and I'd really appreciate your inputs!
I'm going on:
Leather : all black Horse Hide
Toe Cap Leather: Medallion cap toe
Celastic Toe Box: Single
Leather Liner: Black
Pull Loop: No
Eyelet Color: Antique
Sole Trim: Close Trim
Eyelet Configuration : Hook and Eyelet
Sole: Vib 700 or 269 westerner???
Half Slip: No
Heel Shape: cuban heel
Heel Height: Minus 1/4"
Midsole/Edge Color: Brown
The question left is: I've read here a guy complaining about the 269 sole (wich would be my first choice for aesthetic reason), saying that it's very slippery when it rains. I live in Paris, which is a rainy town for sure, and I'm planning to use my SD for every's day wear, walking by the soggy streets... I would really appreciate some inputs of 269 users in such conditions. Do I actually risk my life? Should I go on 700 or composition half sole?
Thanks! (and grettings!)
