  1. Shoes that look better with age...

    Current line-up: Rolling Dub Trio / Chippewa / White's
  2. Shoes that look better with age...

    Rolling Dub Trios, new and a few years old (with Vibram resoles).
  3. Shoes that look better with age...

    It's White's standard lowered block heel. About 1.25" rather than 1.5".
  4. Shoes that look better with age...

    Bounty Hunters.
  5. Shoes that look better with age...

    Motorcycle damage to my White's heels: oops, couldn't get photo to load...
  6. Shoes that look better with age...

    Rolling Dub Trios, at about 2 years. Resoled from the original triple thick neo-cork soles to these Vibrams about a year ago. Very comfy!

    As those lasts show, the SJ looks a bit "stubbier" in the toe box, which I like. But my experience trying both on is that the SJ ends up feeling tighter than the SD, which surprised me. (It also messed up my sizing because Baker's sent me an SJ in 9.5E as a try-on and it felt tight, but when I ordered 9.5EE in SD it ended up being huge... Though to be fair, it seems that White's sizing can be a bit upredictable.)

    Yes, definitely lighter. Feels a bit weird, cause I am used to heavier boots, but it's nice for a change. I see now what people mean by "sneaker boots."

    And here is the current boot lineup: White's, 3 yrs / Aldens 2.5 yrs / RDTs 1 yr
  10. Shoes that look better with age...

    Just got my Rolling Dub Trios back from a resole by Brian the Bootmaker. I admit that the original neocork sole with the leather toe tap was very cool, but it just never quite worked for me -- the triple midsole with the added heel was too high, and the whole thing was a bit slippery. So, decided to get a Vibram wedge sole put on. (Or as my daughter says, a "squishy" sole.) Pretty pleased with how it turned out, and it's VERY comfy:

    Can i ask how your White's compare size wise with other boots you own..? Thanks!
  12. Shoes that look better with age...

    Did you have the speedhooks replaced with those contrasting ones, or was it a special build to begin with..? (Look great btw.)
