Andy -- You need some of these HH boots. If you think they look nice in pictures, just wait until you see them on your feet. I have never had a nicer pair of footwear. Both the construction and the appearance are astounding! And they are breaking in nicely. I can now wear them all day long, every day, and they feel pretty good at the end of the day. There is still quite a way to go before the boots fully conform to my feet, but in a month or two, I may be hesitant to take them off for bed.

Scott -- Thanks, I sure do like them, although all I did was order them and pay the tab. The folks at White's made them classical and beautiful. It's sure nice to still have outstanding craftsmen in the world.

4C -- You will love those boots and will not be walking around wearing run-of-the-mill footwear like most people do. Congratulations on your order and condolences on the long wait ahead. Just forget about the boots until close to the delivery time. Then you can get all worked up with excitement the last couple of weeks.

Little late posting pics here sorry, but after 13 weeks of production time - here are my red dog oiled bounty hunters with 700 soles - loving em, the heat wave is making for a slow break in period but they'll be ready for the fall!

I am thinking about ordering a pair of black or grey SD's.  The Horoween Chrome Excel look sharp but the Moongrey Bullhide and the Black Shark look really good too.  Maybe there are other options not listed on the Whites web-site?  Looking to get some opinions - bring 'em on boys.

These boots would be worn more for dress than for work

I don't know much about the exotics - and While I like CXL for casual boots/shoes, it ages almost artificially fast and has a sort of dull sheen to it that I don't like for work unless you're going to be polishing them often.

 

Call up Kyle at Bakers and pick his brain, he has more experience with the leathers than just about anybody.

All of you guys are killing me with posting pics!

I don't know how many more weeks i am out; but it's too many...

 

Thank you for the photos everybody.

It is very cool to be able to see varying personality in each boot.
