Yeah. Very versatile color.
More depth than black, particularly after wear!
Had a pair, sold em (were slightly too large - before I figured out my size), bought a pair back a few months ago and have worn them regularly since.
I finally placed my order tonight (thanks to everyone here, Kyle at Bakers, and Mark at White's), so now the waiting game begins.
At the last minute I almost went with the brown dress leather, but because I'm buying these to work in (architectural photographer who works in muck/nasty conditions outside) and because I'm buying them specifically for support (blew out my ankle on the top of a mountain last year...had to walk down a boulder field to get out, which certainly didn't help the damage done), Kyle advised me to go with something thicker than the dress brown, even over the dress brown with lining.
My boot is as follows:
9" Smokejumper on Semi-Dress last (Bounty Hunter)
distressed smooth throughout
single midsole w/ natural edge
block heel lowered by 1/4"
antique hooks and eyes
Now I wait. Patience is not my strong suit, but I'm also waiting on a Teranishi Daytripper bag, also slated for 6 weeks...so late Jan/Early Feb should be great.
Custom White’s boots just ordered!
I’m very excited!
