Can anyone share pictures of unstructured toe box with a toe cap on a BH or MP ?

I couldn't find many photos with a toe cap and unstructured toe. I know @Luscombe recently got a 5050 with unstructured toe. How is that toe cap after some wear ? Did it develop any creases ? Do you like it ?
Black HH- unstructured on 38 swing last. It has a crease that @Legal Eagles might find “unfortunate”, but they still shine up nice. 290FAD93-F7A5-4391-8806-C2A5D1F68D17.jpeg 042D9986-F47E-4274-AFC9-C313BB7996A7.jpeg 754E46BE-0CD1-49DF-A656-1DE8F1338501.jpeg

Thanks for the pictures. This is very helpful. The unstructured looks nice from this angle but tbh the two photo are not fair comparisons as they are two different lasts. But I agree the SD on unstructured toe vs SD on structured toe looks totally like a different boot even though they are on same last. On the 5050 last, not sure if the same is true.

I am inclined towards ordering unstructured toes in future models.
My BHs (celastic toes) in HH have collapsed in the toe box ( right in the medallion toes, like yours) but the "crease" caused slight discomfort in the right foot.
This is the first I am hearing of celastic toe collapsing on a Whites boot. Didn't know it could happen.

I just couldn't catch a break ?
If you like celastic toes' look I think you will be fine, mine could be an isolated case.

My structured(celastic toe) MPs in olive waxed flesh next to my burgundy(colour 8) Main Streets with a soft toe.

Bought the Olive waxed with a celastic thinking a toe cap would look weird without it.

Now that I own both, my most recent order(semi-dresses) were ordered with a soft toe.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the pics. These are very helpful.

Did you order SD with cap toe or plain toe ?

my order started in 2020 thanksgiving sale. then they shipped me a pair of really bad SJs and after talking to Bakers they agreed that should no have left the shop. took 6 months with sizing and fit on pair. then placed another order with i think with English tan Dublin . Bakers sent the leather and Whites misplaced it. there goes another 6 months . 3 months for this pair.
