Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 213

post #3181 of 5100

Aw sorry man, I was just riffing on your spelling.

Further to your question, I think that it's not quite dyed through; it doesn't seem to be a bath that they use but a table set-up that allows for multiple hand applied coats.

Check the link.

Kyle told me this too lol. Emailed him to clarify, specifically asking about the example of a Bounty Hunter ordered using the Semi-Dress Last. From some google-fu I did the 4811 is basically the SJ last and the 55 is the Semi-Dress, so it's even more confusing....

It's really not confusing, there is only one SJ last, ltt or plain toe. The SD last or 55 can be used which to most of you becomes the bakers named bounty hunter or a Semi Smoke Jumper wink.gif

I feel like they are getting a little tight in the toe box. Kyle suggested I could have those reubuilt to a 10.5F that should alleviate some of that pinch. He also said the LTT SJ is built on a 4811 last that is pretty wide. Based on this and the tracings I sent in, Kyle suggested I look at SDs in 11EE built on the standard last and 11E on the swing last. Makes me feel much better about my sizing dilema. I now just have to save for my build.

 

Another thing to pass along, Kyle said if you follow Baker on Facebook and/or email them periodically with your size, they might have something on the shelf that you want. This precludes customization obviously, but you might be able to get a deal on them.

You can have a boot rebuilt to a smaller width size? I did not know that...Can they do a shorter length, say 8D to a 7.5D?

I am increasing the size by going up a width from 10.5EE to 10.5EEE. Sorry if I flubbed it, but I thought F=EEE.

F does equal EEE. Not sure why Whites does that.

Yes.  They relasted my SD from a 9.5D to a 9D.

Interesting, thanks. I did not know that.

 

Hmm, I wonder if they could add a leather liner? Probably not.

post #3191 of 5100

I don't think so.  That's a lot more complicated; you'd have to take the boot completely apart, see the liner in, then put it all back together again.  Easier to just buy a new pair.

My new Bounty Hunters were delivered today.  Just a few days over a month since I placed the order.  Here's a few pics I took .

 

 I have a question on  how you guys put on and take off these boots.  I have a high instep/arch and find that my foot does not want to just slide in to these boots.  I end up using a shoe horn and still it is a tight fit.  Once on, they feel like slippers, very comfy.  Getting them off is always quite a pull also. I have a few pairs of boots that offer a larger opening and I can slip right in to and out of  them.  Just wondering if this is a White's boot thing and it will get better with time or  maybe something on the build needs to be tweaked.

They are handsome, what's the intended use?

Do they fit?

 

Seems like there is a lack of differentiation (is the trim close or standard?) between the stitched down areas, as previously discussed.

I plan to wear them for work , as a project manager, so part time construction site, part time office.  I agree on he stitched areas.  I ordered standard trim.  In hind site , I should have ordered close trim.  My bad, as this is my first pair of White's boots.  I need to see some pics of Bounty Hunter boots so I can see the quality of the stitching.  Since I only have this pair, I have nothing to compare them to.

Rick, close trim is for wusses; great job, and fantastic boots, brother!

You gotta post a side profile shot for us though wink.gif
