Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 82

post #1216 of 4599

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.

Some pics of my SJ's (8" brown dress on swing last; standard heel, vibram 430 sole).

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.

Are you wearing the same kind of socks on both? Or dress socks on the Indys and work socks on the White's?

I haven't gotten mine yet, but I wear a 10D on the Alden Barrie last and Kyle at Baker's recommended a 9.5E based on my foot tracing / measurements.

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!

post #1227 of 4599
Yes these are double mid
Standard bounty semi dress last
Double welt stichings
Fc leather is delicate
