Checked them over and gotta say they are flawless. I’m really impressed and slightly in love.
Holy hell these are so wild. I love them, only thing I would change is +double stitch welt to make them even bolder. Looks like the leather still has that whitish bloom, very interested in seeing how these patina.

My feet are clownishly large for my frame so I usually try to avoid drawing attention to their width, but I can absolutely see these with double row stitching in my head. Someone should do it!

Is Maryam hh going to be a standard option at Bakers now? Assuming they can either procure the leather or are they starting to stock it? Don’t need to order a pair at the moment, but it’d be nice for a future order.

I committed one of the cardinal sins of White's today. I'm going on a trip to England that will involve a lot of walking, so wanted reliable, comfortable footwear that will work in the city and tramping through the country, with possible rain/snow. My Bounty Hunters seemed the obvious choice, but the heel caps were already wearing within a couple millimeters of the heel stack. I took them in to the local cobbler and the only caps they had to put on them were Dainite. Hopefully I don't fall on my rear too viciously.

@Properwawa your build has convinced me to get a pair of Ramblers. Do you happen to have pics of your boots on feet? I'm debating between 6" or 7" height.

Here’s a quick low quality snap of them on foot at work, not sure if it’s what you’re looking for? The crepe sole is really great for cushioning, I’ll report back on how it does on ice in a bit if anyone is interested. Currently getting snowfall here in Toronto.

I chose 7” just because I thought a slightly higher shaft would help balance the thick sole a bit better visually. In all reality the shaft gets hidden under my pants, so it’s just a small detail that no one else knows or cares about, but it makes me happy at least!

Yeah this is perfect, damn all the elements of this build go together so well. I have the same thoughts on 7" balancing out the chunky sole. Hope they perform reasonably well in the snow for you.

can you post a pic? I hate Dainite, but am really curious to see what the Dainite toplift looks like on a Bounty Hunter...I'm assuming you have block heels?
