Great build man, pics when you get em' :)  PS: You can change the leather choice on the Tongue-Gusset? I didn't know that.

I have wide duck feet, normal-low arch, work as construction site manager, tropical rain and hot weather country. Plenty of walk thru rain,  mud and sand. I planned to have a real workboots with some good looking and able to get along with formal dress pant if required.

 

1. not yet specified model, but quite lean to BH 6". is there any better choice for me?

2.does double celastic toe strong enough for accidental 5-10 kg box dropping on? If not, I may consider composite toe option.

3.Considering Brown CXL, Brgundy CXL, Dress brown but might changed to oil tan if composite toe is the way to go

4.What is the benefit of leather linging? will i cause more sweaty feet in my climate?

 

My current plan:

Bounty hunter 6"

All Dress brown

Double celastic toe

Plain toe

double stitch standard trim

standard heel

leather lace

antique hook-eyelet

standard height

cream Lining

Sole 100R

pull loop

nat edge

no toe cap

 

Any advice about required are very pleased, I'm a non-asthetic brain man :P


rethink getting the double cel toe it will be very stiff......lining to tan and think about double mid soles...you will be much happier

I actually agree with Louie on his first two recommendations- fancy that! biggrin.gif

Thanks you for your comments, still dont understand what benefit I will get from double mid-sole. I'm 6'1, quite big man for my country.

by the way, I plan to have it as real workboot-safety toe. Single cel is strong enough for accidentally drop of 5-10kg box?

I think if you are a big guy the double sole will give you more support and stability.  The single celastic is strong, but I`m not sure a 10kg box would not cause some damage. I mean to the celastic initially - my guess is it would dent it.

Double mid sole with Vibram outter layer will prevent nails from penetrating into foot box 99% of the time......steel toe for that drop req

I am a fan of the big, strong looking boot.  Depending on what style jeans you wear, can make the boot look a tad larger.

you mean you'll actually use these for work???!!! 😄😜 in that case, double celastic is probably in order. But keep in mind that even single is pretty stinkin heavy duty (especially if you get leather lined). My SJs are single celastic and I would imagine it would take a Volkswagen to flatten the toes

is it bad idea to use it as workboot? I currently use hiking boots but sole's glue start to separate after just 4months, so that I am looking for something suprr tough to replace it. is there bettrr choice?

No Whites specializes in making work boots the new fad youngsters called HIPSTERS are attempting to make them into a fashion statement. The boots are heavy duty work boots........

I wanted to wait until mine were broken in to post any pics.  They aren't quite there yet but are real close.  They are the Classic Work Boot, Block Heel, Standard Heel height, Brass Eyelets, Double Celastic Toe, Leather Lined (Tan)  and since these pics are taken when they are dirty although I did brush them first you can see I use them for work.  They are 4 months old.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They've been Obenhaufed 3X and oiled once or twice.  All I do now is wash them with plain water every week or so and when the water doesn't bead up I oil them.  They are going to get washed tonight or tomorrow.

You're right.  They are heavy duty work boots.  There was a recent post referring to these CWB's a little pillows.  That's not the way I look at them.  They are VERY substantial and when one "bolts" them to their feet there is no mistaking that you're wearing a very heavy duty boot.  Sure, after a couple of days wearing them for 14 to 20 hours i don't even realize how heavy and stiff they are but if you've been wearing some "minimalist" foot wear like sandals for a few days and then strap a pair of CWB's to your feet you definitely know you're wearing something else and mine certainly don't feel like pillows.  On some days I forget I'm even wearing them but on others when they may have stiffened up I sure do.  Mine aren't fully broken in yet.
