I just went back and checked my orders, one was on April 16 and the other April 24. What gives? Still no boots.

How have your feet changed with age? Have you been forced to get your boots rebuilt to accommodate the change?

I feel like my feet have gotten wider. I find this odd. I know it comes with age but I'm only 32.

I ordered two pair, also on the 16th. I am patient though. Quality (and a hopeful flood of orders that day/week) take time.
I have no place to wear them right now anyway. Ha!!

My mistake, I whent back on the site and saw that my order was on April 20th, the 30th was a random circle on my calendar, these days the days run into each other. I apologize for any raised false hopes. Three and a half weeks is still record time for a white's delivery. Six to eight weeks has been my experience.

I placed an order on the 18th of April. I figured there might be a delay since it looks like there was a flood of orders due to Baker's sale. I don't mind the wait.

I am transitioning to a 13ee from 13d. I supposed like most change its incremental but I am moving on from my Iron Rangers and my old Whites Centennial walkers size 13d as they have gotten a tad too narrow.

Well I'm 43 and have always been a 12D on a Brannock.
In a White's 55, I'm an 11.5E
On a Redwing 8 last, I was an 11D, but they pinched a bit, yet an 11.5D felt like I had rubber boots on (sloshy)

So I think it depends on the maker, the last etc.
I'm not sure if my feet are widening or not. I still go to find sneakers in a 12D.

30 years ago I was wearing Doc Martins in comfort. Ten years ago I grew into EE. Now I’m an EEE.

I just tossed my last pair of Doc Martens circa 1991 two days ago. They were still comfortable for about 2 minutes. Two pair of 13EE Whites in process to replace them which I think quite an upgrade.

This is pretty much my story. 10 years ago I was wearing Docs in a 9. Then Red Wings in a 9 EE, now White's in a 9.5 EEE and I feel like those can be tight on the sides in 55, 4811, and 38 Swing. I hate my feet haha.

@sledge - my sizing mirrors your experience. 1/2 a size smaller & a size wider than Brannock.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
