Those are BEAUTIFUL! You are going to force me to get another pair of White's in HH.
I just cleaned, dusted, oiled, polished, and put new laces in my mom’s Hunters and they are looking fine!
I can really see why so many people like the standard oil tanned leather so much.
The White’s boot oil just came today and it has the most wonderful applicator… It’s a fuzzy ball that is really great for getting the oil into the welt and allows just the perfect amount of oil (no drips) to go on the boots.
I just ordered my first pair of White’s!

Thank you, Kyle and Sheryl from Bakers for helping me with my order. Thank you, B-ewing for changing my mind on getting the Semi-dress + giving advice. Thank you White’s boots for helping me out with my order and being so nice. Thanks all, I have the perfect boots for me, my dream boots, on the way and I’m ecstatic.
In 8-10 weeks or so I'll post picures...
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.
