    So it's a double leather sole with no midsole? What the difference between a double leather sole and a single midsole + single sole?

    They are the same but you replace the bottom leather sole with a vibram/ rubber sole.

    ThArtOfWardrobe: play around in the buildaboot website. You will get a much better understanding of everything

    Anyone here ever try to order a White's boot without any logos on the outside? Typically I prefer logoless, but I didn't want to offend by asking, if it's not something typically done.

    I think you can request logo-less as a custom option (might be worthwhile to ask Kyle at Baker's...or contact White's CS directly).

    That said, I like the logo...and it's fairly subtle, at least on most darker leathers.

    The same as any other Chromexcel? Wipe it off with a damp cloth. Brush with a horsehair brush. Add some conditioner if needed (Venetian Cream, Saphir Renovateur, etc).

    chromexcel is pretty oily, so a good brushing is generally sufficient. The color is irrelevant.

    I bought a pair of 13" a few years ago. They are wonderful - once you get them on. If you need them for all day work this is not a problem - but if you are looking for a snow boot to slip in and out of frequently (or quickly) then go with the 8" lower profile. All in all a really good and attractive winter boot.

    Fostering ignorance? I believe ignorance runs par for the course.

    You are just acting as a bully. When I go to sell something, kindly avoid replying to any of my classifieds.
