No way the guys a genius! I chose them actually, was playing it safe for some more conservative buyers when I initially ordered. Prefer them myself, like the Cuban on a smaller heel but not the standard so much. Next stocks will be of the more varied kind!

Each to their own captain.

Can you tell us a bit about the pebbled grain "Voyager" leather from White's? Is it as strong and thick as cow leather? Need it be lined? Any pics of it in use on a boot? Thx!

No picks of a boot in it afraid, sure you've googled? Have a sample here and will give you a description on the eve tomorrow.

Cheers.

I've googled it but found very little. There seem to be precious few examples in the wild of this leather.

The standard cuban non lowered looks best IMHO. The way it was intended to be.

Work boots such as White's have ample room in the toe box.

The Alden Indy is on the Tru-Balance last. Have you had experience wearing Red Wing on which I can actually go 9D, because there is enough room in toe box. I could also wear 8.5 but E width only. RW are massively oversized though. I spoke with Kyle by phone and as per his advice I will mail the actual scan. Just talking to him I told him I take size 9D in Red Wing Moc Toe and 9E in Alden Indy due to the narrow toe box. He said he was the same size in all three of those shoes.

I apologize if this has been beaten to death, but where in this thread (ie page number) may I be able to find pros and cons of getting a double mid sole + standard height heel?

Thanks,
post #1267 of 4606

pro's and con's dont really apply.  Its more of a personal preference.  Double midsole is raging in Japan, but its not necessarily better.  It just creates a stiffer, more solid (less flexible) midsole.  Same with the heel height.  If you lower the heel, the arch seems a bit less intense, or so I have heard.  It does throw off the boot balance a bit in my opinion.  When I look at mine from the profile, the shaft seems to tilt back a small amount because the heel is lowered.  I will be doing a normal heel next resole.

Jamie, is this boot on a single or double leather sole? It says double midsole...does that mean no sole? What's the difference between a boot with a double midsole and one with a single midsole + single leather sole?

Hi,

It's a double leather sole only, I should change that. A double mid sole is the same but with a vibram/ rubber sole aswell, single mid is single leather with vibram/ rubber sole. Hope that all makes sense.

Cheers.

Jamie.

I believe this is America. We believe in capitalism. If he gets his price, bully for him. Let the market dictate: you are not the SEC.

I didn't not buy them to flip them I was hoping they would fit but the size e just doesn't feel right... What does it matter to you what I sell them for? Custom made they would cost $500 so don't think my price is out of line.
