    Got one with single celastic toe-imo looks better than with a soft toe. No experience with a double leather sole though. Im sure teh White`s will take whatever beating you give it

    IMO, give Baker a call and ask.

    These are the ones I like the look of. I really like the way the double midsole looks. The owner of these said there was no Celastic Toe Box. I will give Baker's a call to see what they say.

    $332?! You might as well just customize your own pair!

    For all we know he could have an ass-kicking context next week. What good does a purchase order from Bakers do there? Nothing. Nice boots, fair price. If they're his size he won't regret.

    I spoke with Brandon at Baker's yesterday. He basically said the double sole ads alot of stiffness to the boot. It will break-in but not as much as the single. He also said with the double midsole and the Vibram 100 sole they can't stitch through all the layers. They still glue and screw the rubber but it is too thick to stitch all the way through. As far as these Smokejumpers pictured here, they said there was no additional toe box. I am going to email the pic to Baker's and get their input. I think these boots look kick ass! I am totally obsessed with these boots.

    I want a pair too. Let me know how to order once you get the specs.

    There's something sexy about all those thick layers arching up in the middle like that.

    I want a pair of whites classic work boots but can't decide on a size. I wear a size 11 in red wing beckman and size 11.5 in red wing work boots. Any thoughts?
