Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 251

post #3751 of 4486
I've seen this happen over on some other threads as well. I remember when people use to just post pictures of their stuff and we would all be excited for them. Then we would talk about how excited we were when we placed our orders for items.
Can we talk about White's boots again? I have dreams of smoke jumpers in bullhide, and bounty hunter's in various cxl's, and how bout some french calf semi-dress? Let's get our thread back!

Agreed!

I asked this before to no answer (which may mean I should contact Bakers directly) but does anyone know if it is possible to get the tongue leather in a different color if the rest of the boot is in a different leather?

Speaking of bullhide - have you seen the fantastic (to my eyes at least) olive grey bullhide on this Ultrasound build?

I'm really curious as to how that would wear. Anyone have any pictures of worn bullhide?

^ That would be interesting, also wrt black bullhide - I'm playing with the idea of a black bullhide semi dress with black dress medallion toe caps & backstays...

I have two pairs with bullhide. Let me see if I can find some pictures.

You can get a different tongue colour to the rest of the boot Bingham, good look as well!

Thx man; only about 5mos old. 55 last, brown eyelets and hooks, standard heel and double leather soles. Absolute, hands down, no one can argue otherwise, best bang for your buck boots available on the market

What is a 55 last? Is that the Standard  last?

post #3762 of 4486
Yes #55 last is the standard "SD" last.

Yep, I`d be nice to them, and ask a favor...anything should be possible...

Your brown boots look exactly like mine... and mine has the SD last.

The brown ones are really wide in the front like the Red Wing Beckmans and the black ones are a little narrow like the Wolverine 1000 mile boots. I like the fit and the look of the black boots but the brown ones look more like the SD last. Would really appreciate if somebody here could confirm that.

I will be contacting White's tomorrow and see what they say regarding the heel overhang and the different shapes of the boots.

I think that a good candidate for "most bang for your buck boots" might be the Chippewa engineer boot, currently marketed at LL Bean as the Katahdin iron works boot.  Now selling for $210.  I know that's considered a low end boot by many guys on Styleforum, but it is a quality boot made in the US.  Pretty sure the Katahdins are the same as my old Chippewas, which I remember buying off the sale rack for $45 (!), and they lasted for 10 years as my primary boot.  Now at about 13 years they are on their last legs, but they looked great, were comfortable, and wore like iron.

 

Having said that, I am even more excited about getting my $500 SJ's, which should be coming soon.  But it's hard to beat $210 -- unless it's finding them on sale for $45!
