    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    That's excellent advice. I've dealt with toe rub on many boots in the past and my record for a boot with that kind of fit issue eventually "breaking in" and becoming comfortable is at BEST zero for six. The six is probably closer to ten, to be honest. Every boot where I've had this issue lead...

    Viberg Boots

    Wow, 10 day trip to Costa Rica in summer and you're hauling a pair of Viberg shells? That's dedication! They look great.

    Love those tumbled shell boots!

    Embarrassment of riches indeed! All these toe caps are outstanding. And the 4 row stitch adds another great option.

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    Here you go, some quick shots of brown dress in full sun. Yours don't have to look this beat up, of course. These were my first White's and I do nothing to take care of the leather, just wipe with a wet cloth once a century and brush them. I keep the welts clean, though.

    Damn those brown dress bounty hunters are stellar. Did you get them through Baker's? Absolutely love the details and that leather is going to keep looking better and better. I have SD's in brown dress and the patina after years of wear is unreal.

    That bullhide looks like it could stop bullets.

    Viberg Boots

    Good to know. I need 10 on the 2030 to accommodate wide feet but have a lot of extra room in length. Sounds like the 2005 might be a good last for me in that size. I can afford to lose some length anyway.

    Justsayno you have the Viberg x Himel engineers? I've wanted a pair for a long while but can't find a size 10. How do you like yours? How does 2005 last compare to 2030 in your experience?

    Viberg Boots

    For sure. Vamp and toe are paramount and, from what I can see, I like the vamp and toe on this 2030 engineer. I also like most of the other details, including the shorter shaft (but not too short), the rolled top, the heel / sole combo, and the fact that, unlike any of the others you mention...

    True, though I would argue the owner is the only one who counts.

    It works for the roper but it's not a good look for an engineer, in my opinion. Compare it to almost any other well designed engineer (Attractions, Lofgren, etc.) and it's easy to see the variety of other, nicer ways there are to handle that seam.

    Viberg Boots

    These would look nice in every way on the 2030 last...But they ruin the boot with that awkward rod straight vertical seam in front of the heel counter. Not a good pattern for a quality engineer and I'm not sure how such a pattern made it to production.

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    Ah, I now see that Sambam posted several examples of brand new 55 lasted service boots a dozen or so pages back. They look great.

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    Agreed. I'm curious to see how a 55 lasted service boot would ultimately look. My feeling is that it would be fine, and to have the MP with the 55 fit would be so sweeeeet for my feet.
