I'd do standard trim and heel, no pull loops, and no leather lining (the cxl is thick enough on its own IMO). Also would consider brass hardware. Makes a beautiful contrast to the burgundy.

These have me digging the standard trim...tough choices

Yup! And in a few weeks they'll be 4 years old. Definitely my favorite pair. I wear them several times a week except in the summer, and even then I can usually get a day a week out of them.

I can see the appeal smile.gif would likely still go #8 CXL as these are lighter leather, double stitch down and natural midsole

Guy, you're Viberging the White's thread. Love those boots, though. They look even better once they're broken in.

Sorry. Was only used in context to discuss my white's makeup
post #3083 of 5376
My 2 cents:
Definitely celastic toe.
Yes to pull tab, block heel , and lowered.
Single row or double stitching either way.
No speed hooks (its a short boot).
I would def get CXL lined, to prevent stretching; Kyle at Bakers recommends it, and I experienced it with my OSB CXL boots.

I am working on a semi-dress makeup and would love some opinions on any possible changes:
  • #8 CXL leather
  • no toe cap
  • single celastic toe
  • leather liner (black or cream)
  • pull tab (undecided)
  • antique eyelet and speed hook combo
  • close trim
  • block heel (possibly minus 1/4")
  • Commando mini lug half sole
  • single midsole
  • brown edge trim (possibly natural but probably not)

Thanks for the assistance as this would be my first White's makeup

No break in needed on cxl compared to black smooth which is hard as wood:)

Have you ever fractured your ankle? biggrin.gif I would have assumed you'd have mentioned that, but I found it funny because many moons ago I fractured my left ankle and I have the exact problem you describe with some footwear. Thank goodness that problem has never manifested itself with any White's 

No,never hurt an ankle.  I do, however, have a problem with gout right now with the right foot which is why I think it's so much harder to get into the right boot.  My right foot is bigger than the left one right now.  Probably not a good time to be breaking in new, expensive MTO boots that mold to your feet but if I have problems down the road I'll deal with it then.  The work boots are starting to feel better every day although still tighter all the way around than the SJ's.  The SJ's are just slightly loose in the heel with medium weight socks.  I bought some heavyweights today and the SJ's are perfect with them which is no big deal since the SJ's will be worn mostly in the winter.

Honestly, I think it always looks way more pronounced in photos than it does on the foot with White's. I have other boots where the Cuban Heel is pretty damned obvious when I'm wearing them, but it's pretty subtle on my Bounty Hunters. It's noticeable, but it doesn't really look out of place.

I dig it, but my vote is a full Cuban heel or a lowered block heel.
