    White's, like most work boots, run rather wide in the toe. So if you size mostly by width rather than length you can probably size down a half. I wear a 10 in Alden Barrie last and a 10 in White's semi-dress boots is still quite roomy.

    Those buggers are outstanding!
    That build tempts me to build some SD's of my own.
    I'm typically a heavier utility style boot buyer, but...

    I'd guess 6.5D - why not send your foot tracings in?

    This could be an isolated incident, but my dad wears 11D in most shoes, yet he wears 10.5D SJs and they are a bit roomy on him. SJs seem to be cut pretty big. his 11 packers fit smaller than is 10.5 SJs.

    I wear 13 in most shoes, but I wear 12.5 in my SDs. I tried on some SJs in 12.5 that were too wide, but the length was right. If I go with the pointed toe Packers, I'm not sure what size I'll need, but I'm confident the folks at White's and Baker's can figure it out. I just love the Bison leather in your SDs, [email protected] Your boots really turned my head and got me thinking about a pair of Bison boots for myself. Your disease seems to be contagious!

    Good choice, Bro. The Bison leather is amazingly soft yet sturdy. And the texture is very beautiful... I didn't know what to expect going it, but now I'm a bison believer.

    Those look fantastic. Are they much lighter with the crepe sole? What laces are you running in those; they look great with the black rough out.

    The crepe sole is a lot lighter than other options for sure. I got the laces from Timberland a few years ago but never used them, they were for one of the early Timberland Boot Co boots(used to be pretty nice boot line).

    I wish White's sold black leather laces. Anyone know where to get some that are of equivalent quality to Whites/Viberg laces?

    Nothing a little bit of white out can't fix.

    I am sorry to hear that they aren't working for you. I think you may have even gotten them of my recommendation over on TFL.

    I just double knot them and don't have any problems. They never come untied on me.

    Maybe once broken in they are a bit better? I have had mine for like 2 years so I can't remember for sure. But I can not remember them ever coming untied on me.

    Use the knot found at this link. http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/secureknot.htm I was taught to tie the same knot (but with a different technique) when I was 8 years old and have been using it all my life. Your laces won't slip.
