Ricky, essentially yes. My initial pair were only worn indoors for a few hours. Long enough for me to realize they were too big. The guys at Bakers are first rate. I said, "I'm worried on the fit for these, and just wanted your advice before I wear them outdoors". We had a few lengthy phone conversations, and ended up speculating on the correct size. I then sent them back, and they ordered the second pair at the next size down and a width out (plus addition of leather lining). Bingo, bango, bongo

Hi, does anyone have a picture of the below makeup?

Leather: Natural Chrome Excel
Last: Standard
Hardware: Antique eyes and hooks
Midsole: Double leather midsole
Outsole: vibram 430
Heel: Standard heel, lowered 1/4in
Lining (no)
Edge Stain: Natural
Sole Stitching: Single Row, Close Trim
Toe Cap: None
Toe Box: non celastic
Pull Loops: No

I am trying to see if the soles are going to be too thick, and if the non celastic and sole combo would be too streamlined shoe with a big clunky sole.

I think that a double midsole is going to look weird in that build, mostly in contrast with the close trim. I think double midsole no celastic could work, but double midsole close trim sounds weirdly contradictory.

Inclined to agree with hollows, Boogie Nights Might give you a hint of what they may look like, double leather sole without the added vibram looks fine though or the choices you are looking at with the standard edge.
post #2887 of 3615
Yeah, that sole combo will be over 3/4" thick. You have to wear it like you mean it! Close trim and the lower toe profile with it might look off.

Not mine, nor the same build as asked about, but gives you an idea of what soft toe w/double midsoles looks like

Are there any places in NYC that carry White's in wide sizes?
post #2890 of 3615
Speaking of soft toes; what are your thoughts on the soft toe with the standard heel? To me they sorta look too much like packers


post #2891 of 3615
Don't like the soft toe but you already knew that.
post #2892 of 3615
Hi B, looks quite an extreme looking version but yerp, does look like a wide toe'd packer. Swap out the commando sole and the harvest RO is v nice.
post #2893 of 3615
Thanks for the replies guys, double midsole with the vibram is indeed far thicker than I imagined.

This is Feckin addictive!

Place this Standard build on Semi Dress today.

I like it...minus the soft toe.
