Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 46

post #676 of 5873

New to the site, here is one of my 3 pairs of White's. I fight fire in the summers when im not teaching for a rappel crew for the Forest Service. These are rough cut smokejumpers, 10inch. I also have brown rough cuts with honey vibram, and black smokejumpers with honey vibrams. Will be ordering some semi-dress for teaching!! trying to figure out what color i want for the semi-dress!

Hoping to not give a fuck when winter comes and just wipe the salt off since I have been brushing daily after every wear over the summer.

 Are those dress brown from white's? great looking!

no, the heel area is quite sturdy. I just screwed up the measurements.  I measure at a C width in the heel area, but ordered a D.  Its just too loose for my liking.  These are great shoes, but I recommend remeasuring, as the fit of the northwest last is different than the semi dress last.  At least that is my experience.

Since after 7 years of hard use followed by a year and a half of no use the leather mid-soles (think that's the right term) of my Red Wing boots that I wore for dress and work (blue berry farm work) is disintegrating. Naturally I'm in the market for new boots but more for dress than anything (Marine Corps provides work boots now). Stumbled upon this thread and spend the past few hours reading it and admiring the pics. Pretty much sold on getting a pair of White's. I do have some questions though.

 

1. Does anyone have pics of what the black otter leather looks like? I googled but it turned up nothing useful

2. Is the otter leather actually otter or is it just a name? (wouldn't affect my decision to buy but I am curious as I've never heard of that before)

3. Are half soles available on the Smoke Jumper or is that something I would have to get a cobbler to do after purchase? (I've seen a couple like that but I see no option on the boot builder)

4. What does a smoke jumper look like with leather soles?

5. As far as rubber soles go what are the ones that they screw on in addition to stitching?

6. Would you go lined or unlined?

 

edit: forgot to spell check my engrish

Semi-Dress
British tan leather
cream leather lining
all antique eyelets
Vibram 269 sole
brown edge
standard trim
standard heel
standard last

Love the sole, I wanted the versatility of rubber but liked the sleek look of my old single leather soles. The tapered waist of the 269 sole makes for a perfect compromise. The British tan leather looks even better then I had hoped.

Anyway, on to the pics.







 Are those soles available throught white's driectly?  Do I just say that I would like the vibram 269 sole? thanks!  I am going to order the same except in their standard dress brown. Great looking kicks!

post #685 of 5873

Well, I just ordered some White's semi-dress in thier dress brown leather, original heel, and vibram 269 leather!!!! I hope it is faster than 6-8 weeks...haha!

That's a very dark, rich brown; at first glance I almost mistook it for black.  Do yours have a celastic toe?

 

Best Regards
