    I would go through Bakers and send your foot tracings / measurements to Kyle at Bakers for a sizing recommendation. I'm a 10D on Barrie but a 9.5E on White's. I tried a 9.5D on the Barrie but it was too tight, but a 9.5E there might have worked.

    These have about three months wear. Their configuration is a bit different compared to what I've seen before: brown HH, double leather sole, heel lowered 1/4th... They are by far my favorite boots, looks and wear

    Man... those are awesome! Brown HH looks so rich and consistent. Is this a lowered cuban heel, or block?

    @the shivman: thanks for the answer. Do you think that steel toe on SD would look bulky? I should need it for I want to use my boots as everydays boots, wich means for me use it as actual workboots, but I don't want it to make my SD too heavy. Can't find any pic of this configuration.

    @ tavoz, these are the lowered block heel. On other configurations I think the regular block heel looks a bit funny/chunky. I felt that by lowering it and adding the double leather sole, it would even out the overall look. I actually have another pair on the way, same configuration but with no cap toe and close trim.

    Here is a pic of a bounty hunter with a steel toe. Doesn't look much different then a celastic one. They are quite a bit heavier though.

    Those boots are very sweet. I need to get a pair made. I wear my smokejumpers every day. They will indeed be jealous when I get these.

    Those look damn legit! I can't wait to order some bounty hunters myself. I like the idea of steel toe almost as much as the look. Please post more pictures after wear from the side even for a better glimpse of the steel toe.

    Thoughts on lined vs. unlined semi-dress with the classic brown semi-dress leather?

    Mine are lined, I like it. I've had CXL unlined but never the dress leather. Still, I'd go lined again if I were doing it over.

    My CXL SD's are lined.
    My CXL 1,000 miles are not lined.
    My feet have never been cold even standing in the snow with my SD's.

    the only leather i would get unlined is one of the heavy duty leathers such as the black smooth, brown smooth, or red dog smooth. I'd line the dress leathers as they are about 2 oz thinner.

    Jack -- I'm looking at getting some HH SDs and think yours look great, although I am leaning toward the Cuban heel. Are yours the standard SD last? Since you are getting another pair with no cap toe and close trim, are you doing that because you think the boots would look better in that configuration, or just for variety? Everyone I show pictures of your boots (me included) really like the addition of the toe caps, and the standard trim looks great too. On the other hand, I haven't been wearing your boots for 3 months like you have, and none of us has seen your boots in person. Is there any way for you to show your boots in complete profile to get a better idea of what they look like with your sole/heel combination? Many thanks.

    Thanks for the pic. Awesome... I love the look of the leather too, is this 7-8 oz. oil tanned?
