Standard 6"
Hope you have the turn around time I did. Less than 4 weeks. Couldn't believe it, considering I was told the factory took thanksgiving week off.

Spent my first day of work in them today. Break in won't be that bad. Just a bit of ankle bite but I was able to stay in them the whole day. Awesome boots.

Wow, these Lace-To-Toe Smoke Jumpers are quality boots.  I was worried that the height would feel odd or look too affected for me, but I love them.  Also, as I don't plan to wear them with shorts, people aren't really going to realize they are 10" high and not 7" or 8".  I got these off of Amazon for just north of $300.  They came with two pair of laces and a tiny thing of the heavy duty leather protector.  I look them over very closely and can't find a single quality control issue.  The fit is definitely a little roomier than the Semi-Dress, but the LTT design seems to counter that, so I get a snug fit despite fairly low-volume feet.

 

Regards,

Jon

I wondered if you wouldn't like the height once you tried them on. I've got 12" 10" and 6"'s and I love them all. Each has it's place. Does your SJ's have a celastic toe?

Yes, it has a rather stiff toe box made with, I believe, celastic.  I am neutral on celastic; I think it looks good sometimes, but not all the time.  As for the height, it is satisfying and comfortable for me, though I never thought I would be wearing a 10"-high boot.

a bit of neutral chelsea leather food turns the distressed smooth into a really nice chocolate brown.

Feed back? 

 

Still waiting on my custom pair of White's, but saw these on Amazon and grabbed them. With the holiday sale final price of $335!! I couldn't pass them up. ((Receive 25% off Enter code HOLIDAYS25 at checkout)) to get them down from $447 to $335. 

 

Am I missing something?

I got a good deal, but am I giving up on anything?

Are they the same quality of boot as the Custom boots I ordered through Bakers?

Is the $335 a good deal, or am I just desperate to get into a pair of White's I acted to quick?

 

They have free returns, so not worried about getting refund (shipping is free, i mean) 

 

What do you guy's think? is it a steal of a deal, or am I getting a White's low end boot? 

 

Thanks!! 

(When I get the custom order, I'll post a bunch of pictures with Custom order details)

Mr Burns,

 

Still look really nice! My custom order is 90% close to yours and good see how well they look after feeding the leather. 

 

How are they feeling after another 4 days of wear? 

 

Lucky to get so quickly, I'll have to 8 weeks for them to complete my order. 

 

Thanks.

I have only gotten my White's through Amazon, but I am happy with them.  Certainly, some people prefer other versions of these and give reasons for this, but I am happy.  If you don't feel wonderful about them when you see them, just send them back.  The leather on them is known to stretch some, so they should fit snugly width-wise, when you get them.  You want a half inch up to even an inch in the toe.  The large amount of arch support may feel a bit odd at first, if you're not used to it.

 

Frankly, I so loved my black Semi-Dress, off of Amazon, I then got the brown.  Then, I even got the lace-to-toe Smoke Jumpers...

 

On the other hand, there is clearly something to be said for getting exactly what you want and fitted exactly to your feet.


Regards,

Jon
