How do you specify that you want the rubber outersole to continue at the arch from the front to the back like it shows here. I thought it was called the Half Slip, but apparently not? A lot of White's boots I see rubber on just the heel and the front, but not always the arch.

Also, has there been a post of the Bounty Hunter with a medallion captoe on an SD last? Couldn't find a pic searching through the thread.

It does look like British tan but Sierra as in the title could be a consideration, think White's do a Sierra leather. My stock British Tan pic attached but the lighting quite bright.

Unless you ask for a half sole, it'll look like mine, which is a standard 430 sole.

Here's an update on that pair:

I don't think it is. It looks too shiny to be British Tan...

Oh, of course you meant that shog[1].gif

I bought them on ebay. White's sells pairs there that I assume are ordered but not picked up for one reason or other under the username whitesriver. I paid about retail but no wait time and shipped direct from White's.

Hey guys, I picked up a pair of Hathorn Explorer Plain-Toe Packers for a decent price awhile back and from what I understand they cannot be rebuilt, which is fine because I only wear them casually. I don't see why they couldn't be re-soled when the time comes though, can anyone confirm?

Ah, yeah. I've been watching there too, but there's only been one pair my size and I didn't like the makeup. You found some good ones, congrats!

I saw those natural semi dress'.  I was about to bid but talked myself off that ledge...regretfully.

Can anyone who has a pair of Semi-Dress in "french calf" leather please tell us about it? How thick and durable is it? How does it age? Does it require a leather liner? etc.

Thx

Is there a synopsis somewhere of all the leather options?

 

Bull vs. Water Buffalo vs. ...

 

So many options...

Wow, are these double leather soles with reduced height heel? Personally, I like the proportions...

They certainly are, my favourite of my stock boots.

Thanks for the update hollowsleather!!!
Is it possible to have a pair of SDs w/o celastic toe?
Can anyone post pics of a seasoned pair of Whites in light brown watter buffalo?

Can't help on the water buffalo but you can have SD's without celastic toe, softens the shape a bit, which can be nice. Here's a pair: http://www.eastwestapparel.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=40&product_id=104
