the 269 is essentially a rubber version of a leather sole, meaning traction is at a minimum. I would go with the 430 personally on a bounty hunter, but thats me.
Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 82
Styleforum Top Picks
A lot of folks are saying to go with the Indy boot size for the Semi-Dress standard last. Are you guys wearing dress socks or work socks with each boot? I typically wear wool dress socks with my Indy boot, and planned on doing the same if I bought a boot from White's, but I saw that they recommend Smartwool. Currently I don't have any work socks to wear for a tracing, but I've already done one with dress socks on for another maker.
Wow, I love these non-standard boots.
A few questions please:
1. What is the height? (like the no pull tabs)
2. Is the last standard? The toe seems quite pronounced.
3. Is that a double leather midsole?
4. Its a single finish around the edge is it?
Given me a great idea for a two tone...all in french calf with perforated toe cap!
