Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 11

post #151 of 4334
I think that's either "Distressed smooth" or a well worn "Natural Chromexcel"

Kyle (from Baker's) and I have been emailing back and forth a lot lately. I started asking him a few questions about ordering a pair of Semi-Dress and now I am bugging him about the possible new options from White's. Today Kyle shared some pictures of new sole options he is working on with White's. He said I could post the pics here. What do you guys think?

I like the commando sole! Never understood that half-sole style that's similar to Alden Roys... just seems like it would wear down at the toe really quickly. Also looks like it's visible from the side, which looks a little odd (having a black strip on an otherwise natural side of a boot).

I think the rubber inset into the leather outsole is a good compromise between traction and a lower profile.

The half-commando looks nice too...but why not just have the full lug?

Not a fan of the inset rubber + leather sole. Feels too modern for such traditional boots. I do like the lug half sole though -- looks kinda like the Red Wing GT half sole.

Did you have the heel lowered or is it standard?

That's the standard heel for single leather sole.

anyone care to share their experience with white's in terms of walking on concrete pavement for long periods?

Good shock absorption?


How does the sole hold up?

These look terrific. I was alternating between roughout and distressed roughout and this seals the deal for me.

Note this is the distressed roughout with a coat of Lexol, which darkened it a liitle.

There are many sole options for White's. The Vibram soles hold up like Vibram soles. The single leather soles hold up well, but go with one of the Vibram options if youre on concrete all day.

my personnal expericence use quabaug heel and vibram 430 or 435 on the outsole perfect will help you in cushion and traction
