Do you have a sense of how they differ on appearance and/or fit and feel?

Thanks.

SJ is a lot more bulky and squarish.


SD is of a more sleek profile.


I have no actual fit and feel experience on the SJ, though.

Bounty hunter is a SJ on SD last.

If I have a high instep and high arch, does that remove the SD from possibility for me?  I like the look of the SD more than the SJ, but if it'll be uncomfortably tight in the instep I will have to find another boot.

You can get a different width, would that help? The arch-ease system is supposed to be very good for arch support.

The Arch Ease in both styles are good for high arches, it's the flat foots that struggle with it to begin with!

i suggest a re-measure and send your findings to Whites.  I had to have my Oxfords brought down to a C in the heel area because they were too loose as a D. (I have a 10 D in a bounty hunter that fits fine)  Because they are a shoe, the heel fit is different.  In my experience at least.

I thought the swing last was wider, but not more instep volume?  My foot really isn't wide, and when I do get wide shoes to account for instep volume my ankle usually ends up slipping a lot.

I didn't realize that the SD's had arch support.  That's good for my arches, but does it cut down on instep volume?  I thought that the SD was pretty low profile.  I just don't want to get expensive boots that are custom and not returnable if they're uncomfortable.  

I wish there was someplace that had some to try on.  There aren't any big box shoe stores that carry the non-customized versions, are there?

Thanks for the advice. The issue I have with Whites though is that they recommended a 10D at first, and after floating around in my boots, I had to place them for sale and now wear a comfortable 9D. But I guess I can mention that in my claim though. I hate it when they err on the large size just to avoid returns - its easier to say `wear thicker socks` than have to replace a tight boot. But as we know with Whites, unless they fit perfectly, they can move from the best boot to the worst boot pretty quickly!

yea, I was sized at a 10 D but after going back and forth, Im actually a C in the heel area.  I can get away with a D in my boots because I can lace them a bit snugger and its totally fine.  With the oxfords I was swimming in the heel.  I even suspect I could go C in the ball area, but whatever.  Its a hard game to perfect.

You can get a C width heel and a D width upper/ball area. White's will do this if you ask, they are two separate pieces.

I dont think they will do this willingly on their Hathorne line though.  I had to get a C heel clamp put in.  They wouldnt just resize it to a C.

Is Farmer-ranger toebox and profile sleeker than SD?
