    Thanks for the clarifications. I did find several pics of the classic work boot several pages back.

    You are welcome! :)

    And the Classic Dress Boot is actually a Semi-Dress built on the 461 Last, plus the option of 90 Degree Blocked Heel and Commando Mini Lug Half Sole.
    The Commando Half Sole is the new thing, this half sole can only be applied with a Single Midsole, which is unique.

    In fact, the Classic Work Boot and the Bounty Hunter, are both just Smoke Jumpers, built on 461 Last and Semi-Dress Last respectively. You can make any of these styles just by selecting the right specifics for a Smoke Jumper.

    I think it should be the Semi-Dress Last. And if you order a Semi-Dress, it is the Standard Last for the boot.

    I believe that is also a boot without any celastic toe reinforcement, in other words a soft toe. It will flatten out like that. I have a pair of rough out smokejumpers that are built that way and they have a pretty sleek toe profile because of it (the rest of the boot is anything but sleek however).

    Yes, no celastic toe box will make the toe much lower, and that doesn't require the change of last.
