Can't believe you fell for that toasty.
post #3797 of 5233
So I bought the bayfield captoe boots on the recent lands' end deal. I sized down a half from my typical sneaker size knowing nothing about AE sizing and just going with standard boot sizing being slightly large. Lengthwise they seem fine, but the toe box area is rather tight width-wise. Will the leather here break in and make it more comfortable or do they simply not fit? I will say, though, that they look awesome and I'm quite pleased in all other respects.

the slope on those looks bigger than most SD I have seen. Is it just the angle of that photograph?

Maybe it's the camera angle...here are a couple pics with a better angle.  BTW I'm loving the evo of the leather already, have only worn them 3 days.  These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn.  The leather is soft, the boots are heavy, and the construction is unbelievable!

sorry for ignorance, but i never heard of SD, can you link me to their website i'd like to see more of their stuff,

These are the semi-dress boots from White's Boots...here is the link: http://www.whitesboots.com/index.php?dispatch=categories.view&category_id=446

 

I was not sure about the tapered/sloped heel style myself, but they are growing on me now.  You also have an option of customizing the boots on White's website and order a block heel, which is straight and not sloped.

ivada -- the tapered heel is supposed to be more comfortable than the block one. Is that your experience?

Ah okay much better. Those are great! I'm clearing out some of my boots now due to sizing issues and needing the money, but if in the future when I up buying another pair of boots, I will definitely buy a pair of SD.

Those look really weird ... the shape is so awkward and stumpy. With a heel like that you need a more elongated toe.

Whites are so ugly.
post #3808 of 5233
Real rap they're ugly.
post #3809 of 5233
White's SD are beautiful boots. The camera distortion and/or sizing is making that pair look a little odd.

The proportions look better here:

...they aren't "fashion" boots.
