    That is a bold assumption, indeed. Also, the mods should take care of the in-thread classifieds. Beyond that, the guy shitted on his legitimate F/S thread.

    Those boots that sell on ebay oftentimes go for more than 300, too, btw.

    It's information.

    I know that I'd want that information if I was looking to buy, and so I felt obligated to share it. He can still sell them at that price to an informed buyer.

    If you think that fostering ignorance is going to make a stronger market, you need to go retake your econ courses, it all runs on information.

    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.

    Semi-dress boots don`t have the logo

    I don`t think I have seen a BH w/o the upper logo

    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).
