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.

i sugegst the doube midsoles you wont " feel" the ground. unlike on a single midsole and yes i suggest getting a good rubber outsole like a 430 700 or 705 i dont like the 269 theyre quite slippery for winter pavements

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?

dont get a lowered heel it will affect how you walk. from personnal experience and also dont get a block heel it will drag while you walk ( well depends on how you walk)
