Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 160
Styleforum Top Picks
They are just too wild (in a great way)! I wonder if the bootmakers at White's all stand around checking out boots made from unique leathers like this, or if it's just another day at the White's boot factory??
My first pair of White’s boots arrived today! Happy just doesn’t quite say it.
Specs are as follows:
Custom Semi Dress - Chrome Excel Leather
Last Standard, Sole Vibram Composition Half Sole, Size - Length 10.5, Hardware Brass Eyes & Hooks, Edge Natural, Upper (Shaft) Leather Navy Chrome Excel by Horween, Midsole Single, Pull Loops Leather Pull Loops, Leather Liner Cream, Sole Trim Close Trim, Toe Vamp Leather Navy Chrome Excel by Horween, Size - Width D (medium), Toe Cap Medallion Toe Cap, Celastic Toe Box Single Celastic Toe, Heel Base Standard
BTW: The White's Semi-Dress blend coffee is the best, it's smooth and has a wonderful rich flavor!
Here are some more pictures, but now with leather laces.
Thanks guys for all the help and advice. I couldn’t be more pleased with my boots, they fit well, they are comfortable, and I think they look rather nice. This thread was a huge help for my choice, as well as, Kyle and the good people at White’s. Thanks all.
I was sort of curious why some of you seem so particular about your boots having exceedingly minor imperfections in the leather? Leather is from cows and cows rub against barbed wire fences, fence posts and trees, they get attacked by wild animals, they sometimes gore each other with their horns etc. I always accept the possibility of minor imperfections. Sometimes I think it adds character to the leather.
