Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 288

post #4306 of 4471
the oxfords pictured above are natural cxl, double leather sole, 1/4 lower block heel. no celastic toe, brass eyes. I really liked what style forum was doing with their make up but I love the way White's fit my foot so i decided to work with bakers boots and see if we could come up with something similar. These nailed it plus the fit is perfect for my foot. These will be my go to summer shoe from now on. I am extremely happy with this purchase.

Those Oxfords are fantastic. Makes me want to order a pair immediately. Sadly, that money will have to go in my car first (which is made in Italy and has an unquenchable thirst for repairs;-)
Congratulations on your build. As others have written above, it's made me consider oxfords for the first time.

I understand that point, my concern is over-stretching. I tried serveral brands, all end up with over-stretched in about a year. I went to the shop last week, tried serveral pair. dont have any real WOW.

Wide size is also scared to find in my country. Last year I went to the shop, made some try 9.5D 10D 10.5D. I thought that 10 is too narrow and 10.5 is too long. I decided to ebay 10EE. And that's wrong, it came too large. my foot can twist inside, that made the shoes over-stretched in very short time.

Beautiful Oxfords! Natty CXL is really growing in popularity...Love the look :)

What are some good leathers that would go well as the leather for the upper shaft on the Red Dog BHs. I wanted something a little more comfortable on the top but at the same time something that is long lasting like the Red Dog. How about Brown Chromexcel or Brown Dress?

 

I love @andy b. 's boot below but looking to see if there were others that were good.

Thank you.. Cool website to try out the different features of the boots. However the colors on the website are not even close to the actual colors of the leathers Whites offers.

So this is the "Retro Oxford by White's Boots" on Baker's website? I always wondered why they're so expensive - roughly 150$ more than a Semi Dress, right?
How's the fit and sizing? Like an SD, just lower?

And not nearly all the leathers are there for options. I thought they would have fixed this by now.

What would be cool would be either red dog bullhide or red dog rough out. It doesn't fit your 'more comfortable' criteria, but I think it would look boss.

I think these oiled leather break in to be comfortable enough anyway, don't they?

Maybe burgundy french calf or red milano water buffalo would fit well?

I actually like the Red Dog Bull Hide very much. Is Bull Hide a hard leather too? I actually thought it would be comfortable but not as hard wearing as the Red Dog.. 

 

Also BuildaBoot has Red Dog Smooth and Red Dog Oiled. I am guessing it is the same leather. Am I right..

^ I don't know the answer to either of the questions, sorry.

 From what I can tell bull hide is much softer and more flexible than the smooth leathers, but still quite durable… Red Dog Oiled is Red Dog Smooth with Ober oil...

Yup, the retro oxfords from bakers, from my understanding they are more difficult to last than boots but I can't remember where I heard this so not really sure about it. For me what sold me on them was that whites fit my foot like no other. These fit the same as my semi-dress and my bounty hunters and just as comfortable. I've tried other brands but I'm pretty much done buying anything but whites from now on. They are all I want to wear.

One aesthetic I love about these boots is how wide apart the rows of eyelets are...




Here's a closer pic of this back shelf. Some people prefer that to be trimmed closer, but I like it as it is biggrin.gif
