    Just like the original with the trim and leather lining. Just wanted something nice to beat on yet a little dressy for places that have stricter dress code

    Bought some shoe trees, saddle sopa, brush, edge color, LP from white`s too

    I am assuming it is since that`s the only edge dye they have on their site.

    I had some crappy shoe brush so I figured I`d buy a new one and turns out the white`s kit comes with a shoe horn too.

    Might go with the classic dress boot with the bull hide. Anybody have a pair of whites with bull hide?

    weather sucks so I am currently breaking my sd`s on the carpet right now. Wow glad I went TTS on these. Actually kyle from bakers measured me on a 7B width but after double checking on a brannock I am actually a C width. I supposed I could get in to the B width as well but as it stands the C width is pretty snug around the instep. Maybe I had sent him an inaccurate measurement as well since I did the tracing by myself. I supposed I could go .5 size down which seems to be the general consensus around here but my toes are about 5/8" to 3/4" away from the top which is about what White`s recommend. I also tried on a D width my brother had and it was just as comfy. My ball is right on the widest part of the boots and the eyelets don`t touch.

    YMMV on the sizing but it all goes down to how someone prefers to wear their boots and how their heel-to-ball/toe length measures as well.

    They would probably be too wide. I'm not sure about smoke jumpers, but semi-dress boots run pretty wide.
