I wasnt letting fashion choices take the lead. I didnt know the chrome exel leather wasnt as durable. I just liked that color the best.

Thanks.

The chrome excel is beautiful. So I don't blame you there! But you know what else is beautiful? Whites boots worn hard for real work wink.gif

100 is a full lug, 430 is a mini lug. Either are fine choices. If you do any work in dirt/snow you'll appreciate the extra traction of the full lug.

And by the way, congrats on choosing some great work boots. You are going to love them. Especially in 5 years when you realize you would have torn through 5 pairs of lesser boots while your Whites are old friends and will be going strong.

Mine are definitely bullhide, and Kyle and White's both said the bullhide needed lining. I think you may be mistaken on the photo you posted, as if the ones in the photo I included are the same as the ones in your initial reply, they are definitely lined. You can see the white lining in the photo.

Fair enough, it didn't "feel" like a lining though, just felt like the back of the leather (i.e it was in no way soft as you describe), and I bought them as unlined. Weird.

Still, I can't see cowhide being stiffer then those things, they were stiffer and more brutal than any other leather option I've had.

Just on that point Mega, it's a recent discovery for me while custom ordering. Any leather that needs lining comes lined and it is built into the price you pay already. I'll be detailing this on custom boots.

Kyle explained to me that a lot of these leathers will tear when pulled over the last if they don't have the extra strength of the leather lining. Not to say these leathers are less durable, but perhaps not as malleable?

I stand corrected, thanks guys. Always happy to learn something new smile.gif

Megatron1505---- Sweet collection mega, those LTT bull hides are insane.

Would have never thought that a toe cap would look good on two tone bull hide LTT SJ’s, but it looks very good.:)

That is interesting, regarding the softness of the lining. I'm actually wearing my lined bullhide BHs right now, and when I put them on this morning I checked the lining and it is extremely soft and smooth. It may be that there is some variation to the lining thickness (it is leather afterall) and maybe that is why your boots felt so stiff? The uppers on my BHs felt almost broken-in right out of the box. Much softer than either pair of my other White's using the standard black and brown smooth leather. In fact I was worried they would not be as durable as the smooth cowhide, but that is definitely not the case. The bullhide uppers look the same today as they did almost 4 years ago. No wear, just a few more wrinkles.

CXL scuffing/brushing demonstration

First major scuff, brushed the boots with horse hair brush and now it’s only a small indentation...

After

Ahh, I remember the good ol days of brushing out the scuffs every time a new one popped up.
