    Very nice pairs! I like the texture of the bullhide, with the toe cap they look awesome, and the B width swing last is not bulky at all to my eyes.

    As you mentioned you are C wideth on 4811, may I ask did you ever try on a c461 last, and if you did, what's the width of the toe area compare to the 4811, say should I go the same length and width from c461 to 4811? Thanks very much!

    We are at about 4 weeks. If all goes well. We do have times when a boot will get ruined in production but we still try to start a new one and get it out on time. Thanks for your business.

    Here is a new prototype we are releasing soon. It will be a Whites Centennial, aka Clampdown construction. So lower price point to try to compete in the crepe boot market. Designed a one peice counter pocket/backstay on a 610 last so not as much arch but will have an ortholite insert for quick break in. At some point I will release this upper for Whites style construction. So be patient. A real comfortable boot.

    It looks like a 7 in farmer/rancher on the C461 last with a double midsole, Vibram 700, with British tan/bullhide leather.

    ^The picture is from Ultrasound Boots – a White's dealer in Hongkong. Always a lot of inspiration on their facebook and website – especially if you like slightly outlandish leather combos. The leathers on the boot in question are Toffee Dress and Mushroom Oil Bullhide – both of which are not normally available. Possibly a limited run or an exclusive leather to this specific dealer? Sambam will probably know...

    Any experiences with White’s Waxed Flesh leathers? I’m interested in an MP boot, probably from Baker’s since it seems to be cheaper, and can’t decide between one of the dress leathers or a waxed flesh. I have a pair of Alden Indys already in CXL so hoping for something a bit different.

    These would most likely see quite a bit of rain/snow/ice so it seems like the WF might be a good option but I haven’t heard much about it. Also, is White’s WF from Horween?

    Nice, but I'm hoping the entry down market does not lead Whites to influence their standard top line models...too often the mass market and volume are tempting...ortholite insoles for quick breaking in already sounds like short cuts and cost cuts...
