I use shoe trees in my dress boots like Aldens and Trickers but not in White's, I'm just not mean enough to em to warrant them.

I am currently breaking in a new pair of SD's, in brown Bison. I'm the one that purchased the pair that Blaster had for sale. I ended up
sending them to Baker's to have the heels changed to a standard height and the soles changed to the Commando mini lug half. So far
they are great ! I did notice that the stitching is white, compared to my other two pairs of SD's. Only one bummer though, when they
skived out the leather to attach the half sole one boot is more flat and the other is more convex. Oddly enough I don't feel it when I walk,
mostly just if I'm standing I can sort of roll my ankle back and forth. It will cause premature wear in the center contact area.. I might wear
them a few more days then make a decision if I'll send them back to fix it or not.
