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!

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

 

Best Regards

Those turned out good!

We have a lot of those soles left if anyone is interested - I have a pair in the shop of my own SDs that i'm going to apply that sole to.  

Also, just so people know, if you have your tracings/measurements on file with White's...we can get access to sales history and sizing with your name and the year of the build. Just throwing that out there. 

We appreciate everyones business! 

Thank you -

Is there a White's boot with a similar shape/last like the Johnson boot from Yuketen?




Thanks,

@Kyle__ how do i size on the Classic 461?
is it closer to the SD or SJ?

... the reason i asked cuz [from experience] the SD last seemed to run a tad longer than the SJ

Thanks,

I`d say the Bounty hunter with block heel, and medallion toe cap would be the nearest to these. Try Bakers online ordering - fun to try the various options. And with the buildaboot page you can visualize the boot.
