Nick's Boots - Page 44
I'm not sure what you mean by this. My Nicks are stitched through the sole as well as screwed. I have a pair of White's with the double midsole, and they aren't stitched through, just screwed. I think it depends on the sole and midsole options you request.
seems like the better solution would just be to get jeans that don't have such a huge leg opening.
I'm thinking that their stock Ranger is exactly what I'm looking for and no build time. If White's Farmer Rancher was stocked in smooth brown instead of special order only, then I might be conflicted. Sounds like you're pretty happy with the Contender class boots? Looks like you have some of their MTO welted boots, too. In my mind the 12+ week lead time for Nicks outweighs the difference (I would prob get an MTO Homesteader in the same options as the stock Ranger). What do you think?
Maybe it's in the thread and I missed it. I didn't see anyone ask though. What are some of the wait times young's have had after your try ons were backing spokannand had made a final decision on a boot? Lil Background... I am waiting on a pair of Hotshots in Red Dog. They don't have to be customized in any way besides the color, but are lace to toe. My fitter told me they would NOT have a pair like that in stock. I'll probably call them tomorrow and ask I'm just interested in how long u all have waited. Thanks!!!
My new boots arrived yesterday. I paid for them on October 27th. They arrived on April 19th. I specifically requested eyelets because the hooks on my White's have wreaked havoc on the hem stitching of my slacks. I requested black hardware and black edges because I intend to wear them with slacks and suits. I realize that boots aren't "ideal" for suits, but western U.S. culture is remarkably tolerant.
