Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 42

post #616 of 5426

also note that the sole pictured there is not a Whites sole, but a resole by that Japanese guy that everyone goes nuts for.  Cant recall his name, but he does great work...

I'm thinking of building a pair similar to these, http://shop.imogeneandwillie.com/collections/mens/products/whites-boots-black-cap-toe

Are these a standard heel hight with a single sole?

That is standard heel height, block (traveler) heel.  Single leather midsole with vibram composite half sole.

^^Thanks, I'm slowly deciding how I want to build my whites, hopefully I'll finish deciding on the specs by the end of the week so I can get the order in and get them back before winter. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
So far I'm thinking Bounty Hunter style (6in) in the black CXL, with medallion toe cap and natural edges and block heel.

One thing I cant decide is whether to go with a single or double midsole. If I decide to go double can I still get the vibram half sole on? And if I can would the boot sole look super thick with a double midsole and vibram half sole? If I'm going to be wearing them at work I have to have that non-slip sole.

Also is there a place where I can look at or get info on the different lasts? I may still get semi-dress but I wasnt sure about the difference between the standard last, swing last, etc.

Thanks.

Last question and then I'm putting in the order.

Are these a double sole with a lowered heel? Thats what I think, and this is the look I'm going for.

Also, whats the deal with sizing. All I know is I'm an 11 in vans and a 10 in my wolverine 1000 miles and quoddy's. What size should i go with or should I send in a measure?

+1 on cuban heels
Also gnu check the previous pages. gd1944 posted some height pics of the different setups.

Water Buffalo is thiner, smoother, lighter. Chrome Excel is dryer on the inside and does not age in a nice patina is my view...
