    Thanks guys for all the help and advice. I couldn’t be more pleased with my boots, they fit well, they are comfortable, and I think they look rather nice. This thread was a huge help for my choice, as well as, Kyle and the good people at White’s. Thanks all.

    How do I care for horse hide? Is it ok if I use Obenauf's leather protector on horse hide?

    I was sort of curious why some of you seem so particular about your boots having exceedingly minor imperfections in the leather? Leather is from cows and cows rub against barbed wire fences, fence posts and trees, they get attacked by wild animals, they sometimes gore each other with their horns etc. I always accept the possibility of minor imperfections. Sometimes I think it adds character to the leather.

    Flood away! :D
    I think I like them best with the leather laces. They're thicker than the nylon ones.

    Yup, leather laces and cuffed jeans is the best look.

    These are my soft toe SJ's. Seems like the soft toe doesn't get much love. I thought wild land fire fighting boots had to be soft toes? My boots here are 6 years old, and built like a tank. Whites are the best.

    They can't have steel toes- dangerous heat absorption. Most have celastic for protection.

    No they don't, Smoke Jumper boots come standard with a soft toe.

    I just tried on a smoke jumper last weekend in Denver that was soft toe and the salesman told me that was the preference for the wild fire firefighters. I was surprised as I thought they would want some protection with at least single elastic.
