I just talked to Baker's and got the tracking number for my new HH SDs. Delivery is estimated as next Tuesday, June 25. If the boots arrive that day, exactly 14 weeks will have elapsed from the day I placed my order to the day of delivery. That's a long time, but only a fraction of the time it took me to get my Russell boots on the two occasions I ordered those. If the White's are a good fit and are comfortable to wear all day, they will have been well worth the wait. I'll see how they turn out and will give my comments here.
I only like the block heel when lowered 1/4", but the Cuban heel looks the best to me and generally best at its full height.
