One of the best selling builds for us returns. A classic boondocker style pair of White’s in a heavy duty leather combined with the comfort and support of White’s patented arch ease design makes for a great everyday pair of boots for on and off the track.
The Original Smoke Jumper Boots by White’s were designed for and are still worn by the woodland firefighters of the US North West. Built with the very best components to withstand the harshest of environments whilst offering the wearer maximum support and comfort they are the ultimate work boot and fully rebuildable to offer lifetime companionship.
Construction: Every pair of White’s boots are handmade from start to finish. All leather, no synthetic materials or fillers are used. Stitch-down construction for strength, comfort and ability to resole. Stitched throughout with heavy gauge waxed thread. Flexible oak tanned leather mid soles, optional Vibram outer soles, strong all-leather shank custom shaped to fit your foot and the finest leather uppers that will only get better with age all make White’s a real workhorse of a boot.

The roughout #55 Smoke Jumpers are made on the Semi Dress last so the below sizing info is correct for them.
White’s are sized in US sizes but generally fit quite true to UK sizing, so a 9US is a very similar fit to a true UK size 9 (EU 43). These SJ’s fit quite slim so will feel quite snug for a D width but do ease up after wear. The majority of White’s boots stocked are in a D width fitting which is the US average and comparable to a UK G/F. They have plenty of toe wiggle room and are snug (as they should be) through the rest of the boot.
