    Damn, really ?!? The first 7 went by relatively fast, another 7 won't be the end of the world.
    I see Bl@ster's Brown Bison SD's are still available.. it's going to be hard to hold back from buying those !

    I know and just saw the price drop. Oh so tempting. You see it's not that i let my wife dictate what i do. It's just i can't come up with a good excuse for needing another pair of White's while I've got a pair on order and only three month's after buying my first pair of "these will last a lifetime" boots. Along with another custom 1911, the shotgun i just had to because it was on the ban list, some Steel Flame jewelry, some Rev Hartz jewelry, some more add on's our Polaris RZR just had to have and on top of that a damn transmission in my truck. It's been a rough year so far. I just can't come up with a good excuse....


    ah, hell....do you take Paypal?! Just kidding, although if they are still available in the next few weeks i might not be able to hold back.

    Having a shotty is great and all but let me show you the beauty, the suppleness, the downright intoxicating smell, the glorious texture of this Brown bison:

    And yes, I take Paypal.

    I used this to measure the size of my feet which is accurate as long as you print the paper to the correct scale.
    http://www.allenedmonds.com/wcsstore/AllenEdmonds/Attachment/content/size_and_fit_guide.pdf

    I found out that I'm sized between 8 - 8.5, D but closer to 8. Looking to get a Semi-Dress Boot.

    Could someone who finds their White's Semi-Dress super comfy try measure their feet and post your feet size and Boot size?

    So I would know whether should i upsize, downsize or stay TTS.

    My foot is an 8.5 D on the brannock but I wear an 8 in most work boots including whites. Most times, and what i think sometimes gets overlooked is there is a degree of fine tuning which can be achived with something as simple as a thicker or thinner sock and if needed something like a spenco insert. the reason whites and other workboots tend to run a little big is exactly for this reason. Having lived in the Pacific northwest and having worn heavy wool socks I can say that extra room is needed. Here in Texas i tend to wear thinner socks so I'm fine sizing down a little.
    also socks and spenco is way less expensive than trying to recoop your money through selling and then having to order another pair.

    Since I'm going to wear the boots with thin socks, should I downsize too?

    I was fortunate enough to have lived in Eugene and was able to go directly to Baker's boots to get my foot traced and fitted by them. Best sizing advise I can give is to call and talk to them, or message Kyle at baker's, or talk directly to whites. We all have unique feet and though our advice can give you a starting point they actually handle way more boots than any of us will ever see. Talk to them get their advice and follow it. With Whites it's important that your foot sit in the right spot because of their amazing arch ease system (which i love) socks and an insert can help a little to fine tune the fit but are not going help with a total size difference
