Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 40

post #586 of 5392

I personally don't like Wesco`s stitch interval...it seems too wide. Whites also have a great color and custom range...

but when you wear whites they feel like your waring old shoes .
while wescos feel like modern shoes

I think I do; good description.

Thanks for input guys. They seem very comparable.

One thing that has always had me favor Whites is that stitching on the Wesco`s...too course in my opinion. Wesco`s harness boot is fine though, and I haven't seen enough of White`s new harness boot to compare...

This thread is full of shiny new Whites so I figured I'd give a little update to the post above.  Here are mine after ~3 months or so of daily work use.  They get cleaned and oiled every couple weeks depending on conditions.

what was the original issue?

Hey guys,

 

I'm looking at a pair of White's Insulated Hunter boots for winter.  The three toe options (excluding the steel toe, which I'm obviously not interested in) are Standard, Celastic and Double Celastic.  I really don't know what to get.

 

I understand the Celastic offers some degree of reinforcement and helps the toe box keep its structure - but I'd like to know what any White's Boots wearers have to say.  I wouldn't be using these boots to carry around great piles of lumber or other heavy stuff I would drop on my toes - but I also don't want the toe box to collapse and lose its shape.

 

Clue me in.

 

Thanks!

go for the double if you are at all concerned.   The single celastic on mine are only good for shape retention.  I can totally flatten the toe out if I put enough pressure on it with my thumbs, so I doubt it would protect much against errant lumber.  It does provide a bit of protection from the front, just not the top.

Hi fuzzy,

 

Thanks for your thoughts.  Are you by chance familiar with the Red Wing Round Toe (9111) 6" workboot? I have a pair and they have some degree of reinforcement in the toe - though when I phoned Red Wing to ask what it was, the guy told me he'd never even heard of "celastic" - though I have read the term on a number of sites.  Anyway, the amount of reinforcement on the Red Wing boot's toebox is the most I'd want; I don't want them to be too hefty upfront.  I guess I can crush it fairly flat with both thumbs, too.

 

If you - or anyone could compare the celastic on the White's to, say a pair of Red Wings, I'd much appreciate it.

 

Cheers

single is fine for what you're talking about I think, I have had single celastic in a few pair and all have been plenty firm to hold their shape well without flattening.

Hi slide,

 

Thanks for your input!

 

Best Regards
