I don't own any footwear in horsehide (from White's or anyone else). That is definitely on my short list of leather options. The Packers are probably the closest fitting pair of boots I own. I don't want to say tight, because they are extremely comfortable, but they have a lot of support in the arch and instep area. When I talked to the guys at White's they said it is because the Packers have a higher heel, and to keep your foot from sliding up into the toe area they don't want any looseness in the arch or instep. I just mention this in case you eventually get a pair of Packers. They definitely feel different on your feet than the BH (or the SD I would assume).
