Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 77

post #1141 of 5912

this thread and the one at FL are a must read and see for anyone into some White's boots...thanks to all who shared your pic's!!! but... I'd love to see more pictures!!!! I think the sizing and last's and sole questions have been pretty well answered...the waiting questions will remain I'm sure...haha      

So i'm giving a call out..pic's-pic's and more pic's.. with as many color/leather combo's possible, the build sheet, age and amount of use they get........

I'll post some pic's of my plain dress brown virgin SD's in oh about 5-6 weeks....my first pair...my second won't be so "boring"..or my Nomad's...yes i'm infected...thanks to those who shared and if you have a rare combo..pic's please

The blue pair is a fantastic make-up ... save for the block heel, which to me, seems out of place with the narrow waist

'Here here' to the request for more pics!

 

I'd love to see a good close side shot of Smokejumpers in Black CXL, with either SD or 461 lasts...  (I.e, Bounty Hunter or Classic Work Boot).

 

I know that doesn't count as exotic, but it's what I am thinking of ordering, so the more pics the better as I decide on last and sole options.

 

Thanks!

Just received my White's SJ's (8" brown dress leather) from Baker's. Very happy with them overall. The only issue is this defect in the leather on the inside of the vamp.

 

 

My question: this looks like a natural scar in the leather...and these are boots I plan to use rather than baby (as much as possible with $$ shoes anyway). But is this something that passes muster with quality control or should I contact Baker's/White's?

I have an 8" BH in black CXL.  I will post pics later this evening

Got in touch with Kyle at Baker's. His thought is that it's most likely an issue with how the boot was lasted. He's already contacted White's.

 

I should say that dealing with the folks at Baker's is a real pleasure--top notch customer service.

I agree, unless your look is Marc Bolan circa "Tanx".

I would mention it to them in such a way as you are disappointed, and want the matter settled. You would not mind a credit for a future pair, (if that suits you, as a rebuild will take 6-8 weeks) but you are quite surprised that it passed quality control...I would contact them, but frankly its a non-issue long term. It looks like something slipped in the building, but I do find it a bit unacceptable they went ahead and delivered it to you in that state...

Oh, and give us more overall photos! Great boots...a lowered heel?

Thanks--just talked to Baker's with precisely this line of thinking in mind. I can deal with the defect...my disappointment comes from the fact that these boots come at a premium cost--and that cost should include quality control to catch issues like these.

Great, look forward to seeing them.  as well as more pics from 'kbjack'...

post #1153 of 5912

Pics are on their way after work... I'm done grousing! smile.gif

 

BTW talked to Kyle at Baker's. He'd heard back from White's about the defect--apparently it's just a fatty deposit in the leather, so nothing to worry about structurally. But they offered to discount the boots slightly, which was nice...I'm happy and happily give big ups to the folks at Baker's!

quick and dirty pic.  awful indoor overhead lighting so I adjusted for it a bit.  8" BH with composite sole, heel lowered.  Will most likely get a normal heel when I get them resoled.  Oh, and this was natural edge.

Is that the SD last?
