Agreed. I'd like to see them with black leather laces, actually. Wesco sells some decent ones.

Just took them out of the box, and the White's sloppiness strikes again!  I ordered 9.5EE with mini-lug half sole; what I got was 10EE with 705 composition half sole...  Oof. Really bummed.  That sole option would probably be my last choice (don't like the skinny midsection it gives to the boot), but in any case, they are just too long.  Oh well, another 7 week wait for replacements I guess...

That sucks. Did you get someone else's order?
post #3471 of 5424

you should ask them to put a rush on the order. if they haven't done so already. it'll speed it up considerably

Yeah, like rydenfan said, are you sure you got the right order? That doesn't even sound close. Wrong size and wrong sole.

Lina, sorry to hear. That's incredibly frustrating to go through... Chalk another one up for Nick's biggrin.gifwink.gif

I'll check with Kyle at Baker's tomorrow, but I am pretty sure it's the right order done wrong.  It's still black HH semi-dress on the C461 Last with brown edges, but size and sole off base.

 

Otherwise, they are impressive boots, and I'll try to do pics before I return them.  The HH is not quite as rich in tone as Viberg I think, but I do like it; and the boots feel quite substantial in a very good way...

Just ordered a pair.. Here are my specs.. 

 

1 x White's Semi-Dress
  • Leather 1: Brown Horse Hide
  • Leather 2: Brown Horse Hide
  • Toe Vamp Leather: Brown Horse Hide
  • Toe Cap Leather: Brown Horse Hide
  • Celastic Toe Box: Single
  • Safety Toe: No Thanks
  • Upper (Shaft) Leather : Brown Horse Hide
  • Leather Liner: Black
  • Back Stay Leather: Brown Horse Hide
  • Pull Loop: No
  • Eyelet Color: Antique
  • Sole Trim: Close Trim
  • Eyelet Configuration : Hook and Eyelet
  • Lace: Leather
  • Sole: Vib 700
  • Half Slip: No
  • Heel Shape: Curve
  • Heel Height: Standard
  • Last: Standard

I am going to change the back stay leather to "black" horse hide.. Any other changes??

 

I like how my Redwing Iron Rangers fit and I wear a 9D in them. My brannock size is a 10D. So I went with a 9.5C in the SD as I have seen that they are a little wider than the IRs. Hope it works out.
