Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 105

post #1561 of 5897

I cant notice a difference in appearance between the celastic and the steel toe, so I doubt there is any difference with the single and double celastic.

post #1562 of 5897

@The Shivman : Really? Do you own both of those configs? I would love to see pics of steel, single or double celastic toe on SD...

post #1563 of 5897

you should read through the thread, I've already posted pics of the different toes. Suppose I'll do it again.

 

Steel Toe:

 

 

 

Double Celastic:

 

 

Single Celastic:

 

Non Celastic:

How's the non celastic holding up (if they're yours?) Shivman? Interested to see if the toe flattens much. Cheers.
post #1565 of 5897

Those aren't mine, but I do own 2 non-celastic toe pairs and the toe hasn't flattened or caved in at all. It's just a different look.

Check this out. I received two Whites leather samples(one got lost and reappeared in the mail) direct from Whites.

These are the same leather(same color/texture/thickness)but labeled different. I know it's not FC but maybe Brown FC and Dark Brown FC are just the same shit.

How do i get samples too?

Could you give me/us the heel and sole spec on the black steel toe boot in the photo?

That is about the most perfect work boot ever made!

 

Thanks

The non-celastic pair above is mine, they're holding up just fine:

I don't have the full spec's on those, but if I were to make a guess they would be standard height cuban/tapered heel, and a vibram 700, natural edge.

Those look good, Urb. What do you think of the 430 soles? I like the appearance of the soles, but I ordered the 700 soles on my SDs at the recommendation of others. The standard lift block heels look better when the height of the uppers is taller and gives more balance to the bulk of the heels. Your choice of distressed leather on the lower parts and natty excel on the uppers is a good choice and will probably stand up better than all excel. I'll be interested in your thoughts after you have had a chance to wear the boots for awhile.

Thanks, I'm really enjoying them so far.

I love the 430 soles. I've had 3 pairs now with that sole. The 700 looks like it has less traction, but who knows.
