    Bounty Hunter is a Smoke Jumper built on the Semi Dress Last. They can be all the same on every aspects, except the Last.

    The block heel looks so much worse then the cuban.

    Thinking about getting this build with a cap toe and a cream liner. The leather here is White's black dress leather. Shit looks svelte as fuck.

    - swing last
    - close trim

    the specs sound great but I really don't dig the swing last; they would have looked killer with a standard last imo

    I'm not sure it's the swing last so much as it is the combination with a single leather sole and lowered heel. The top of the boot looks as though it's crushing the bottom, an effect that would not occur with a double leather sole and a standard heel height. If one were set on the sole combination being as is, I would agree with Slab that the lowest profile last would be ideal.
