Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 153

post #2281 of 4480
A couple questions for some bounty hunters I'm considering.
How does the vibram 430 sole wear? Is it soft or kinda hard? I have a pair with the mini lug half sole and like it but seems soft so might wear quickly.
Also, any body have any navy cxl with some wear on it to see how it ages? I've only seen pics of new pairs.

Jvav, sorry no pics handy. but ive owned some blue cxl shoes and really love the way they wear. like the black CXL, the blue is aniline finished rather than pigment dyed. The surface spray will wear exposing the brown. You can always polish the leather- to add back more blue- but to me itd be like re-dying faded denim. you earn that patina wink.gif

If you don't want that affect, I'd suggest another option

I figured it out for now. This has been holding correctly for a day an a half.

We were not able to find any pictures of SD's in black shark so I am not sure what they will end up looking like.  I guess I will find out in 3 or 4 months. lookaround.gif

B-ewing, thanks for the info, if you take some pics I'd like to see them. I'm considering the blue on the shaft similar to where Brian itzaina has the red dog with a brown lower.

I really like the direction you are going. What other leather are you thinking with the navy cxl?

Brian, I was thinking either distressed or brown smooth for the bottoms. They will be steel toes and will be worn to work in so was wanting a stronger/thicker leather. I have a pair of bh in natural cxl already so would like them to be a little different.
post #2293 of 4480
going with natural CXL on my next sd. so nice when broken in
