Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 129

That build sounds pretty badass, man!

No worries, Lefty. That is a great build that will look spectacular. The only things I would personally change are that I would use the plain toe cap (the medallion will look good too), and I would go with the close trim to keep in line with the somewhat dressier look you seem to be chasing. However, that's me and you're you. You will have some incredible boots. Post pics when you finally get the boots.

Allen you raise a good point re the close trim with the cap toe, and I tend to agree. On the otherhand something about these just looks killer IMO, and can imagine that Lefty's in shark would look equally (if not more) badass:

Shark attack!

Your boots are going to look wonderful, nice choice Lefty!

Is this picture the black shark?  it looks kinda brown but maybe it is just the lighting.  the close-up pictures look more black.  awesome looking leather.

Allan - do you know if you can ask to have the stiching in black vs. the normal white?  After looking at the pictures that ewing sent I think you're right - the double white stiching looks like it will detract from the look I am going after.

Lefty -- I'm pretty sure you can only get white stitching, but you can use a Sharpie or other permanent die and color it black. I think the single stitching looks better on a dressier style of boot like you are getting, and looks fine in white, but coloring the thread black would dress up the boots a bit more, although creating a somewhat less traditional look in the process. If you prefer black thread, then go for the dye and make the change. All black will look great!

Can anyone with a single celastic toe comment on how much, if any, it will stretch or form to your toes over time?

Zero, zilch.

Agreed - I think there's a higher chance of your toes forming to the toe box than the box forming to your toes

That would be my preference too, but others could reasonably disagree and want black stitching.

The other question is whether to get black stained soles or not. I say, "Black Over Everything"!
