    Kyle said the fire season is coming to an end so white's has caught up with the orders with lead times of 3 - 6 weeks.

    Sounds great.

    Sounds good for me, not only can I start to breath fresh air unburdened with smoke at the start of the Montana hunting season but I get my SD a lot sooner too.

    That's cool, my wife has shown an interest in a pair of White's. Just trying to find some pictures of "lady packers" for some ideas. There doesn't seem to be a lot of them out there.


    Lefty,
    That Shark is awesome ! How do they wear ? Where they tough to break in ? My only experience with Shark is on my gun holster and it is stiff as hell.

    Have a search online for hollows natural cxl's, think they look great. Shoe trees will keep them good also.

    Dude, better embrace the flattened toe, it's gonna happen. In my book it's a good thing...

    Zero regrets on that. Considering a classic brown SD with no celastic as well in the future.

    Basically the shoe that i use on the clutch for my manual car always has a deep crease but it goes away after shoe trees. I just have to walk around like that. :fu:

    You guys are getting me wrong i rather the toe be flat. Right now my left shoe always has a big crease after driving. Im just wondering how long it will take and is my use of shoe trees slowing it down.

    They are just too wild (in a great way)! I wonder if the bootmakers at White's all stand around checking out boots made from unique leathers like this, or if it's just another day at the White's boot factory?? Andy B.

    EXCELLENT!
    I am really loving all these cap toes! I have to think about getting them on my next pair.
