That the standard block heel, not lowered, correct? Also, 269 soles?

Yup, standard block heel. Double stitched edge.
Bought them on ebay from whitesriver so I don't have full info on the features...
They looked way different before this first reno application!
I'll have to beat them on up again... just finished wearing them for 2 1/2 weeks in London, Dublin, Oxford and Belfast.

Brian -- I can hardly wait to see the actual boots. They will look great.

Meso -- Your boots show how nice CXL can look. Hope you got a good price from Whitesriver, but those boots are worth paying full price. I prefer Cuban or lowered block heels, but I can't find any fault with your boots, except that they aren't my size.

@Brian - Is lace to toe supposed to look like this or there's something wrong with the picture?

post #1837 of 4339

Hey, dose anyone hear know about the White's Boots "Vintage" boot? They seem to be a fair starter boot for $319. It looks sort of like an 8'' CXL semi-dress, but with brass rivets.

Thoughts?

The build a boot website does not comprehend lace to toe as far as the photo adapting to your chosen selection.

What?!? I thought that all White's boots were made in the USA. Which part isn’t?

If I can confirm this I will cancel my order with bakers and get SDs in navy CXL.

Thanks for the info b-ewing

@4characters, if I am wrong I deeply regret post that, but from what I can remember these are not 100% "Made in USA" (meaning its made here, but not enough to get the made in usa flag) eg partially assembled elsewhere, perhaps the footbeds, or lasts? If the boots come with the American flag they're 100% legit, if not then theyre partially built here.

Can anyone else confirm or dispute this? I try to stay out of slandering business when I can! smile.gif

Does this picture make any difference? Maybe you are thinking of Hathorns?

I contacted White’s boots and am waiting on a response.

Thanks

That'd seem pretty difinitive biggrin.gif pls update with White's response. Like I said, no mean to slam the company at all. But I did remember Kyle or somebody giving me an explanation as to why they were cheaper (and being because of how they're made)
