    yeah, White's w/ standard heels have some serious arches going on...takes some getting used to so I can see where the lowered heel could be a good option if you like a flatter feeling boot.

    ^White's makes the best leather laces I've ever felt, that is a nice option. I don't mind the stock Semi-Dress laces myself however, that is what I use on mine still.

    The nylon laces would`ve been nicer if waxed.

    skuirtgun, knucks: nice boots!

    The brown laces make my black boots feel brown.

    Knucks did you order those through white's? Not sure if whites will call when they get my order to get info on what extra's I want. On the order form there was no where to put a toe cap as an option. Anyone order though whites?

    give them a call and specify what other options you want like single row stitch/close trim, etc. and do it before they cut the leather or it would`ve been too late.

    I ordered some custom white`s off baker`s for my brother for xmas that just arrived last week. Turned out he already placed an order that same month I placed it through White`s directly :fu:
    I also have an order arriving for myself off Baker`s. Dunno what to do with the extra pair, I am away from home atm and he`s not sure whether Baker`s accept returns on custom sd`s

    I do believe they take returns,but depending on the size you also would have no issues selling them for sure.

    Hi Knucks!

    Is this double midsole?

    I was once told that commando half sole cannot be used on double midsole, but yours is apparently double......

    No, single. The commando sole is half sole so it may look like i've got a mid double sole
