Nick's Boots - Page 25

post #361 of 365
I got a pair of Nick's a few weeks ago. I guess they're Roberts in natural CXL (lined). Here they are next to my White's BH. I wish I had either gone for a cuban heel or a lowered block heel.

Man, they both look great!  That's a lot of boot in that pic..  I agree with you that the heel seems a bit too much as is on the Nick's, but otherwise the proportions are great and construction seems right on.  And I like the slightly rounder toe on the Nick's.

Yeah, the rounded toe is spot on. But when I look at that heel on the Nick's all I think is how that lift has got to feel good on the legs back and feet. I did the lowered heel thing for esthetics at first but quickly realized there is a reason they do a higher heel

A preface; I've been a lurker on SF for quite some time now. Of late most of that time is spent on the boot side of things (read: White's/Nicks/Viberg), but this is the post that drew me out of the shadows so to speak. ;)

 

Those White's are gorgeous, and exactly what I've been in search of for awhile now. I'd love to get the full details on the make-up. I'm guessing Bounty Hunter on the Semi-dress last, 8 eyelets antique, double-stitched, single midsole, lined, mini vibram outsole, pull tabs, natural edge, 1/4 lowered block heel... I can't quite figure out what the leather is though. It seems too dark to me to be CXL, but too light to be brown dress. I'm thinking it might be the british tan? If it is, I think this is the best example I've seen yet of how the british tan can age :drool: Also, are those BHs soft toe or single-celastic? I can't decide, they seem to have some definite structure, but I've always associated single-celastic toes with a more prominent/higher toe box.

 

Anyway, awesome boots dude. I've seen a ton of different makeups, but there's something about yours that just calls to me. White's work in mysterious ways :rolleyes:
