Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 208

If you're confident you have the right size, then just keep wearing them. They'll settle in, over time.

We'll see.  I'll give them a couple more months and if they don't fit right I'll make a phone call.  The biggest problem is I don't do very much walking.  Not near as much as the average person.  I am paid to sit so it will probably take me about 3X longer to get these worn in.  I can already tell that this oil finish leather is some tough stuff.  It's been like strapping those hard plastic moto-cross boots from the 80's to my feet.  Those moto-cross boots, by the way, were FAR more comfy but then they didn't stretch and conform with time as I'm sure this leather will.

Mainly on the left side of the left boot.  The leather on the upper left shaft is just pushing in on my leg.  It has been so painful I have had to take them off after about 5 hours.  As you can see in my other posts.  That problem has just about gone away.  they are still a little snug in other areas but they seem to be breaking in quite well.  They are still quite stiff all around though.

Is it in the spot where you fold the gusset of the tongue?  If so, that'll smooth/flatten out in time.

I've had my bison bounty hunters since October, do a lot of sitting, and wear them a couple times a week. I usually measure E, but Kyle at Bakers measured me at a B and D. They were brutal at first and felt slightly tight when I first put them on for a long time. A couple weeks ago, they clicked and are absolutely perfect in every way. Give it time.

My natural CXL SDs arrived yesterday…





My older pair in black cherry water buffalo. Same make-up except for the leather and the brown edge stain.

Call me crazy, but those don't look to be quite as Cuban (i.e. shaped/tapered) as what I've seen in the past.  Maybe I need to reassess the Cuban Heel on my next boot.

Doesn't seem to be tapered from the side, which is strange

I like it a whole lot more that way.  Not quite as extreme.

 

I wonder if it differs because of boot size?

They did not put the black tongue i requested and even called Baker's about before placing my order, not a deal breaker as i like the outcome of the boots but make me suspect about their MTO which 3 weeks only.

Ben those guys have been dropping the ball on your orders! First, the sloppy counters. Now, the wrong MTO makeup??

That said, they are sharp as hell looking, bro!

You are correct B-Ewing, I think they only check their shelves for stocks and  just pick the closest to my MTO and wait for 3 weeks and shipped the boots.:satisfied:

The heel is definitely tapered. Compared to the heel on a cowboy boot, I wouldn't call the SD's heel a "Cuban" heel. When compared to a block heel, the taper is more apparent. The tapered heel is one of the features that give the SDs their distinctive look; and one of the reasons why I prefer them over other boots like the Alden Indy boot. Since I already had a pair of SDs, I was about to get a pair of Indys but I'm glad I went with another pair of SDs. They turn more heads than any other boot or shoe I own.
