Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 210

Although I have the Iced Mocha CXL from Viberg the British Tan seems like a very quintessential White color to me. I also was originally going to do eyelets and speed hooks but thought given the shorter nature of the boot I decided on all eyelets. Yes, I think about this stuff way too much...

If you want a darker burgundy pull-up leather, you should really check out Nick's Boots offerings, one of which is a "burgundy anaflex" from Seidel Tannery.  It borders on black, but any stress/stretch point is a beautiful burgundy.  While I'm not impressed with Nick's non-pull-up leathers (plasticky and/or lacks dept), their burgundy anaflex, brown anaflex, and chrome mexcel (yes, spelled correctly) is some seriously impressive stuff (they sent me samples).

I look forward to looong discussions about which boots are better smile.gif

Ricky,

I've got the fear for you. I already feel for you, what a cock up and yes White's QC is being and does need highlighting and improvement. The fear is that I think you might get back mismatched heel sizes and shapes etc... If you don't send in your other boot. White's are a work boot company without mass produced moulds etc... You can already see quite a big difference in your boots (outsole aside) shape and I fear that unless you send the other boot in with it to be matched to you will spot a difference when it comes back. Maybe not but from experience no 2 White's that are supposed to end up looking identical. Just a suggestion.

Yeah. I've already decided to send both back this time. Thanks for the info.

Honestly there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of difference that I can tell, but the SJs are more broken in than the BHs, so it's hard to compare. They have a very similar toe profile, but the SJs seem to have more vertical room (taller toe box). The arch is supposed to be a little less aggressive in the SD/BH. To me it feels the same as my broken in SJs. The SJs were probably more agressive when new. Fit wise, both boots seem about the same. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the info. I wish White's would simply provide this info. Find it odd that they don't. Funny too because everyone says the same thing... that the SJ are a bit boxier. But when I see photos of SJ, the toe seems narrower. Example. Here's a shot from b-ewing from a few days ago of a SJ. Looks narrower, right?

 

Anyway, much appreciated.

The narrowness will depend on the sizing width (is the photo of a D width or something narrower?). Also, when looking at any angle but straight down, the taller toebox of the SJ may give the illusion of it looking narrower (since it's width relative to the height is less) than when looking at a comparable SD. Looking at my SJ and BH, the toe box width and general contour looks about the same. The SJs are ltt though, which further complicates an objective comparison. The ltt and standard toe are built on the same last though.

Oh really? Good to know. I followed the link you provided and it said it was a SJ so I assumed it was the standard SJ last.

 

Like I said, I really wish White's would provide photos of the differences. Too hard to determine otherwise!

 

Thanks!!

Oh man! You rock! This is just what I'd been wanting to see. These your photos or did you find them somewhere?

 

Thanks!

I'm contemplating either getting a SD in BullHide or HorseHide. This would be my first Custom White Boot. Can someone tell me how these two leathers compare to each other? Would either be considered better than the other?

I have no experience to date with the C461 last but am totally intrigued by it.

Those comparison pics are great!

I was thinking of getting a BH but I saw that the Classic Work Boot is available in 7" height as well, so I'm seriously deliberating now haha. It looks like the C461 is just a little bit sleeker. Does anyone know if the Classic Work Boot has a gusseted tongue as well?
