Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 139

post #2071 of 4558
None of the White's lasts are very dressy. Unless your business casual office setting is industrial chic, I'd stick with Alden's for this type of thing.

This info has been deleted - thanks for the heads up! It would sure be nice if they were taking 3-5 weeks biggrin.gif

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.

Thanks blaster - wearing some Alden's at work right now as a matter a fact --- can't wait to get home and put some white's on for the night though cheers.gif


And thanks daizawaguy - agree with you on the leather choices, really mixes it up

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.


more can be seen at: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/zodiac/item/10022838/

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…

4 - A build like that keeps me on the fence about which boot to buy... that might just work - I'll just have to bother Kyle and see if they can do the toe without the reinforcement like you said

Tigerpac, go for the soft toe!! You ever seen Hollows natural cxl bounty hunters? F^cking sick, man!

And like his, I'd go with standard trim- i personally only like the look of the close trim on cap toe SDs.

If he wants a dressy boot i dont think he should be looking at whites.

Tiger. You can get the non celastic on pretty much any boot being made for you.

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...

its not a dressy boot at all because you'll never be able to wear it with trousers let alone chino's. your stuck to basically denim only. if you buy it like that and think your dressed up even in the slightest your kidding yourself. wearing really nice boots though most likely dressy nope.

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.

White's can only be worn with denim? That's silly.

No normal humans will look sideways at a clean White's build in a dressy scenario. Unless you're hanging with stuffy, guffawing, old money gentry, you'll be just fine.

I'm still very happy with my no-celastic BH.
post #2084 of 4558
Seconded. Any chance of stealing that pic above then Mr Hollows? Please?
post #2085 of 4558
ever see those guys wearing workwear boots with suits trying to make it look dressed up. never works out right does it. thats all i gotta say. they are nice boots period but i would definitely not call it dress boots.

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.
