Anyone interested in Semi-Dress Brown Chromexcel 12.5EE? Got them custom ordered from White's couple of weeks ago, but they are too large for me. Boots are in excellent condition. Drop me a message.

Other Lasts that Smoke Jumper use, include Standard Smoke Jumper Last, #38 Swing Last (Very Wide Toe), #461 Last (Upturned Toe), and Northwest Last (Wedge Sole Last). And they are mainly different in shape and profile. The #38 Swing Last is the widest of them all.

i got the #38 Swing last. they're wide, but seem to have a lower profile @vamp than my SJs. it's got same upturned toe as #461 [that has a rocking motion when walking] & run bigger than SJ/SD, so sizing down 1/2 to 1 size is necessary.

my questions are:
does the #461 last have a similar high profile vamp like on the Viberg service boots?
how is the toe box?
how should i size on them?

Yes, the #38 Swing Last is the most roomy one, but as for lowered profile, I don't really know that.
The #461 Last, I think it will just feel like the Standard Smoke Jumper Last in size.

not my size but what is your brannock size?

white`s said their boots will slightly draw down in length as it gets broken in. Otherwise most people have had their success sizing 1/2 - 1 size down

Want to order the Baker's Oxford, but I am completely new to White's Boots.

I see that Baker's offers this oxford in brown chromexcel. Any pics of this oxford in brown cxl? Thoughts on such a makeup? I want something that would approximate this viberg oxford (but for a lot less money).

Sorry for the monologue, but I did find a pic of the Hathorn oxfords (same as Baker Oxfords?) in brown cxl with white soles from a shop here in Japan. These look great. I know most on here our into boots, but I'm surprised these oxfords aren't talked about more?

is there any other [distinct] difference between 461 & SJ, aside from the upturned toe?

They fit perfectly...and they put my RW GTs to shame...these boots rock. They are pretty heavy tho- I put my Alden Cordo-Indy's on after wearing these for a while and it felt like I was wearing slippers...

 

is this a bounty hunter or classic work boots ???
