Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 41

post #601 of 5116

single is fine if all you want is shape retention.  if you are looking for any sort of protection from dropping shit on your feet, I would strongly recommend double.  Im not familiar with the 9111, but I am familiar with the 3141 chukka, which is sort of similar.  The celastic is about the same, but constructed much better on the Whites.  I cant remember if the Red Wing uses a man made celastic material or not, but the Whites is leather I believe.

can the single celastic toe box be flattened out?

why dont you get a pair without celastic toes, seems less tiresome?

Me?

 

I'm wavering between no-celasitc and single celastic.  I just don't want to lose the toe structure.  What do you mean by "less tiresome"?

 

Cheers

get a single.  It keeps the shape fine.  I only mentioned double because you mentioned wanting some protection, but not a steel toe.

Hi guys,

 

When you orders from Baker's, which way you place them?

What's the different between these links?

 

By http://buildaboot.com/

or http://www.bakershoe.com/shop-by-brand.cfm/brand/whites-boots

 

Thanks a lot!

Are the non celastic toes as durable as single or double celastic toes?

well, the leather wont wear out any faster or break down any quicker.  It just has a lower profile toe with less structure

I dont think it matters as it all ends up in the same place.  FWIW, I ordered through build a boot just because it was easier.  I made small changes to my orders by emailing Kyle with my order number and he executed the changes efficiently with no confusion

My no celastic BH is doing just fine:

If you want a lower profile, just skip the celastic. It's not going to change anything other than appearance.

Cheers, that's definitely the direction I'm leaning in.  

 

Best Regards
