Blaster you're a Seattle guy too- do you find you wear your leather soled boots as much as your vibram ones? Today's sunshine is an obvious (and welcome!) fluke- I love the aesthetic and vintage appeal of double leather soles, but have been hesitant for obvious (at least to fellow northwesterners) reasons.
Yeah, it's hot as ballsack today. I'm not used to it! Because of the usually damp conditions, I get all of my boots topy'ed... so you get the best of both worlds (leather + rubber). I know all the good cobblers in Seattle and Bellevue so if you need recs, I can give them. Also if you want to see any of my White's in person, just let me know. I'm in West Seattle.
My White's collection is up to like like 7 pair. Not to mention way too many Alden's, Wolvies, and Red Wings. I have a problem. You don't want to be like me. Stick to the non-GM cotton, bro.
