    Pretty sure White's can do it.

    laces question...i got my black cxl semi-dress last night and absolutely love the boots. i'm not a huge fan of the black nylon laces. what are other options people are going with? waxed black? is there a black option for the leather laces?

    any input is appreciated

    I'm sure you could have requested black leather laces. I picked some black leather laces at a local cobbler.

    I don't think you can go up in width, only down..depending on how much room you need, they may be able to stretch a portion, but I don't know.

    I tend to agree - where is that extra space going to come from!? I`ve had only but bad experiences with the wrong sizes - if it doesn't fit at the beginning, theres only hope that will help change the size - but that never materializes I`m afraid. Good luck though

    Haha, why am I not surprised that the timing gap is freakishly accurate?

    I ordered a week and a half after you (sept 17) and have another week and a half to go.

    Sorry to hear about the storm Can't wait to see em when you can share. Cheers.

    it`s fine with regular socks. but when I go with a thicker wool socks, my left foot starts to hurt where it touches the side of the counter. I look inside and the creases on the inside lining isn`t as pronounced as the other foot. Would stretching be able to target that area?

    I'm sure whites offers a leather lace. You could also get a spool from Tandy that will last you forever.

    Something like this:

    Well, I got them! They are White's Semi-Dress in brown with vibram 629 soles (White's calls them Western Soles). Ordered them directly from White's and honestly they are comfortable out of the box. This is my first pair of Semi-Dress', but not my first pair of White's. I had my measurements taken at the factory in Spokane a few years ago. Thank you for all the info and advice!
