I had my wife help me re-measure and trace and ended up with some different/bigger numbers so that's encouraging.

Yeah, saw those on White's IG and thought they looked great as well. I really like how the murdered-out look matches with the leather laces.

I have a pair of LTT SJs with black RO vamp and heel and smooth brown shaft. They look pretty cool. They also have the Vibram lug sole and double leather midsole, so they look rather beefy. LOL

@andy b. - how do you like the smooth over rough build? It’s a classic firefighter combo that’s makes a lot of sense.

How do the smooth oil tan leathers age? I am loving how brown dress is aging. I kinda want to try a brown smooth one day but like they would already make my casual 38 swing last boots look even more like a work boot.

The only time I ever ran into anyone else wearing White’s he had black oil tan SDs. They looked super cool, well worn and showing more wear than I expected them to. About three years old I think. Made me sort of want a pair, though I’ve never had the leather myself.

I got a pair of Farmer/Ranchers for work a couple years ago in Brown Smooth/Oil Tanned. I'd been wearing Danders & Redwings all my life up until then. The Brown Smooth has held up great rubbing on concrete/pavement, smashing through the elements (we get all 4 seasons here) and digging up underground gas lines like a madman.

Here's my Redwing loggers after a little more than a year in the field and White's in Brown Smooth after 2+ years and how well they clean up
