I have lost count of all the White's boots you own, have on order, and are getting ready to order, but they all look good to me. The new Classic Work Boots in burgundy chrome excel are going to be very heavy-duty, but will be very attractive too. I noticed you are getting the curve heel in standard height, thus going back to "high heels." That would suggest either that you are not too averse to the greater heel height or you are willing to deal with an uncomfortable boot in order to achieve the look you like. Since I ordered my HH SDs with the standard height curve heel too, I am hoping I won't regret the extra heel height. I certainly don't think that the lowered heel kills the looks of the SDs, and I would gladly wear boots as beautiful as yours with the lowered heels if they were significantly more comfortable. Except for cowboy boots, I have never had heels as high as the standard height anyway. The Arch Ease system may just be a marketing tool, but I was convinced it would be more comfortable. Perhaps I am just drinking the Koolaid by believing the marketing hype. From an appearance standpoint, the lowered heel is almost as attractive as the standard height, and I am definitely not a purist who thinks that if I don't get the standard height heel, I shouldn't being buying White's boots.
I would sure like to see pictures of your various boots now that they have some wear on them, several of them a year or so. There is nothing better than a great fitting pair of broken-in boots, but I haven't seen all that many on here. Lots of new ones though, and I am grateful to those who took the time to post them. Your Classic Brown boots are nice. The dry tanning sounds like a good process for a boot that will gain more and more character over time. I'm happy to know that your horse hide boots are a close second, since they will be my first pair.
Hopefully, no one will break into your house and take the small fortune in White's boots from your closet. You are fortunate to have such an impressive assortment to wear. Enjoy them.
