Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 128

post #1906 of 4570
Those oiled red dogs are sick!!! I love smokejumpers so I do like the Bounty Hunters more than the semi dress. Whites sure makes some fine boots. I have standard smokejumpers that are 9 years old and still are in great shape. I also have red dog insulated hunters that also love. Both have soft toes which I really like as well. The soft toes flatten out in time and don't end up looking like clown toed shoes.
I'm thinking about ordering some bounty hunters myself. Might have to go with the oiled red dog myself.

4characters,

You have to love how a little oil brings the White's right back to life!

bl@ster,

I think your pair look better than the originals! I don't have any White's that are all eyelets, all of mine are hooks and eyelets. The more I see of pairs with all eyelets, the more I am starting to like them. I like yours because they seem to have twice the eyelets as normal. NICE!

tigerpac,

You are going to love the Red Dog. It ages beautifully. My Bounty Hunters have the Red Dog heel and vamp and I think they are my best-looking pair of boots. I get tons of compliments on them when I wear them. I just had them on yesterday in fact.

Thanks Chief. I'm a fan of the all eyelets because I think it makes the boot just a touch dressier.

BTW, the laces I'm using are available here:

They are Made in USA and pretty reasonably priced. Lots of colors available for some extra "pop."

Would like those laces in my Vibergs - anyone any ideas where those colour laces they use are available ?
Just ordered a pair of baker's Oxfords that are very similar. $300 and you can custom order them any way you like. From bakers boots in Eugene Or

Your boots are so cool!

My natural cxl SD's are begining to crease badly as in near damaging. The color is wild, my toes are almost black with natural light spots in the flexing areas.
My point is I'm worried about what any oil usage for avoid any leather damage will make them look like.

Anyone use oil on natty cxl? I have redwing boot oil handy.

I've used Pecards on natural CXL before, and had no problem. but my shoes in no way ever looked like that. If I were you, and I'm not smile.gif, I'd wash thosed puppies down, let em dry then add a modest coat of some boot dressing. Yes they may end up a bit different color, but consider it part of the evo process of your boots! Even hardcore denimheads need to wash their jeans from time to time wink.gif

Brian,

As b-ewing said, you really should put something on them. I would use one of the products recommended throughout this thread (I use Obenauf's). If the leather starts drying out, it has to be restored, there is no way around that. It will probably darken the boots somewhat (at least temporarily). That is just a part of owning leather footwear.

White’s boot oil is pretty light oil, I’ve used it on a few boots and they have turned out a little darker, but I have enjoyed how they changed. White’s boot oil also doesn’t make the leather super greasy like some of the other oils. It also smells nice.smile.gif

On these I did a heavy coat, but you could try a light coat of White’s boot oil.
