    Those turned out good!

    We have a lot of those soles left if anyone is interested - I have a pair in the shop of my own SDs that i'm going to apply that sole to.  

    Also, just so people know, if you have your tracings/measurements on file with White's...we can get access to sales history and sizing with your name and the year of the build. Just throwing that out there. 

    We appreciate everyones business! 

    Thank you -

    Is there a White's boot with a similar shape/last like the Johnson boot from Yuketen?

    @Kyle__ how do i size on the Classic 461?
    is it closer to the SD or SJ?

    ... the reason i asked cuz [from experience] the SD last seemed to run a tad longer than the SJ

    I`d say the Bounty hunter with block heel, and medallion toe cap would be the nearest to these. Try Bakers online ordering - fun to try the various options. And with the buildaboot page you can visualize the boot.

    I find the water buffalo responds better to a cream, as does the bullhide, whereas the chrome excel likes a wax based polish.

    But as I have learned with other shoes, the conditioning creams are best for any leather, even if alternated with wax based polishes.

    i think regular brushing is more important than treating the leather, unless you are exposed to some serious wet conditions. Get yourself a Star brand horsehair brush and brush them off after each wear. Most people over-do the leather treatments. Under normal circumstances, just Obenauf them every 4 months or so and you should be ok.

    Yeah that`s how I got my sd`s to look great. constant brushing whenever I am bored. Also Kyle at Baker has a lot of those thin vibrams I had installed if you guys need them.
