This info has been deleted - thanks for the heads up! It would sure be nice if they were taking 3-5 weeks
Current lead times are 8-10 weeks but please keep in mind this is a very extreme fire season this year and a lot of demand for smoke jumper boots! We appreciate your patience.

Tigerpack---Maybe you are looking for something like this….
It is Burgundy French calf with half sole and medallion toe cap. Only thing I would do different is get close trim. Also, if you call White’s or Baker’s I’m sure you could get them with an unreinforced toe.

in Japan they sell for $1379... lol
While we are on the subject of White’s boots as dress shoes, I must say this picture is one of my all time favorites. Super minimalistic, unique color, clean looking….. Anyway I’m just sitting here dreaming of my navy CXL SDs with 700 soles, medallion toecap, close trim, and crème liner… ordered them five weeks ago, maybe I’m half way there…

Loving the suggestions so far guys - thanks!
It's an interesting issue, I think I might be able to get away with a dressy build of a SD for most work days but not really sure. I have Aldens that are dressy enough to wear with a suit... don't need quite that level of dress but enough to be able to wear with slacks and a button down.
Close trim, non celastic MIGHT do the trick...
every pair of aldens i own i can wear with denim/chinos/trousers and it looks good i get compliments no matter so dressy yes. you will look out of place wearing whites no matter what configuration with chinos/trousers so dressy no.
for reference i don't consider someone really dressed up if they are wearing denim. i wear lots of denim so no hate.
if you think i'm trying to put him off from buying whites i've already ordered my own pair of non celastic toe in close trim already which i just stated in a few posts ago but i already own plenty of dress shoes/boots. this will be my 4th pair of whites, two i've had to sell, and my first pair after they have been worn by me i have given to my younger brother to enjoy so now i'm buying a new pair.
