I mean, they're not in any way, shape or form dress boots/shoes, but they look nice.
I wouldn't say they look feminine. It looks like a slightly sleeker last compared to some other White's offerings, particularly in the toe box, and it looks like it has more of a straight Cuban heel instead of a curved logger heel, but I wouldn't say they're particularly feminine looking.Thanks for the honest opinion! I really like it. Well, since you are from the UK, do they look feminine? especially with that heel?
I also hope I never get to work in so formal of a place .My thoughts on those as dress boots is: I hope I'm never in any sort of long-running circumstance where boots like that are being frowned upon as unacceptably casual. I imagine in many more conservative offices that would be the case, but I would not want to find myself working there.
Finally got a shipping notification for my Black Friday order! Fingers crossed they arrive before I go on vacation in three weeks.
Would like to see some pics. What made you go for double midsoles? I might not order double midsole again, I think it increases the break in time.7" Lace-to-toe Bounty Hunter, olive waxed flesh, brass eyes and hooks, celastic toe, standard (double row) welt, standard (curved) heel, double midsole, lineman patches. Not sure what the soles will be, to be honest. I originally ordered Dr. Sole red/brown cork half soles but the biggest ones they make were too small for the boots. I told Kyle that if it wasn't too late with the double midsole, I'd like a Vibram half comp sole put on (might result in the fabled "triple midsole"), but if it was too late for that, then I'd go with the Vibram 269. I guess it'll be a surprise when they arrive!
I am a pretty small/average guy, barely six feet tall and 230-240 lbs so I am better off opting for single midsolesI like the look of the thick midsole. My commando-soled bounty hunters and MPs both effectively have a double midsole as well and I like how it eliminates the ground feel of jagged rocks and such. It also allows for more insulation from cold ground. Being not a tiny man, the extra thickness also looks more proportional and adds more support as well. It's definitely more break-in time but I plan on having these boots until I die, so what's an extra few miles?
are those yours loldo they look feminine? especially with that heel?
