    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.
