Lina, I've heard great things about the horse strip White's sources for its SDs. Supposed to take on a beautiful patina. You doing lowered block or Cuban heel? Regardless, I think 1/4" would be low enough depending on which sole you went with (269 will get you even lower than double leather, right?)
Btw- saw you posted your HH Vibergs up for sale; sorry to hear those didn't work out as they were grail boots IMO. Nothin beats the comfort of White's tho
Thanks b-ewing. Yeah, the Vibergs got me hooked on horsehide, and now it's hard to go back... But couldn't get the right fit with Viberg, so am going to try White's. I'll go lowered, block heel for sure.
