Idk about Hathorne, but I did this for my semi-dress.

All right, getting ready for an order here, and am trying to decide on Semi-Dress Last or 461 (sprung toe) Last, probably for a 6" Smokejumper, but maybe for a Semi-dress.  I have seen plenty of pictures of the 461 Last, but wouldn't mind some testimony from those that have them or have seen them in person.  how do they feel?  And just how "sprung" is that toe in real life?  is it enough to make it seem "cowboy boot-sh", which I don't want; or just enough to seem classic work boot-ish, which I do?

 

Any feedback is welcome as I figure it out...

 

Thanks!

The Farmer-Rancher is literally the Semi Dress last on the Smoke Jumper styling. I have them in stock and there is barely any difference between the SD and FR last.

Alright, I'm going to post the short version again.

 

Smoke Jumper: Standard last, lug sole

Farmer-Rancher: Standard last, composition or mini lug sole

Bounty Hunter: Either of the above on the semi-dress last

 

There are other last choices (38, swing) for Smoke Jumpers, Farmer-Ranchers, and even the Semi-Dress, but take the above as the basic guide to terminology if another last is not specifically mentioned.

What do you think of the improvement with the natural leather laces to match the sole?

I gave in again. Semi-dress in horween natural chromexcel, block heel, brass eyelets and vibram sole. Was on the fence vs. the oak street trench boots, but opted for these because the sole is so much more substantial on the white's.

Those natty SDs look great, as do the natty laces on those blue suedes!

Wow, those look great.  I might have to get some of those.  I really am interested in horsehide, but the natty cxl keeps looking better and better.  I have natty oak street book makers trail oxfords, but I want a boot in natural.

Can anyone identify the leather on these White's?
