White’s Semi Dress Boots – Black Chromexcel Leather


SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , , , , , ,

The classic Semi Dress boot from White’s but this time with close trim for a slightly sleeker and more discreet footprint. Combine this style with the very popular and lustrous Black CXL leather, that will tea-core with wear, and you’ve got a classic pair of easy wear boots that will comfortably see you through all seasons for a very long time. Classics!

White’s Semi-Dress boots have the same superb qualities as shared by all White’s work styled boots in a slightly simpler style for everyday and/ or every-evening wear! Often slightly less rugged in appearance than the Smoke-Jumpers but built to last all the same.

Every pair of White’s work boots are individually hand crafted from start to finish and are made to withstand the toughest of environments.

Construction: 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 makes White’s a real work horse of a boot.

The Black CXL Semi Dress boots fit quite true to our general rule with White’s, which is, go for the same size as your UK size so 8 UK, go for 8 US in White’s. Please see our recent guide here for a more in depth guide on sizing of all the brands we stock.

A size 8 in this boots feels like:

John Lofgren Engineers/ Combats: 8-8.5 US

John Lofgren M43: 8.5

John Lofgren Donkey Punchers: 7.5 – 8 US

White’s Smoke Jumper (lace to toe – standard last): 7.5

Red Wing (majority of styles): 8.5 – 9 US

Viberg 2030 last: 8 (Viberg boot sizing)

White’s are sized in US sizes but generally fit quite true to UK sizing, so a 9US is a very similar fit to true UK size 9 (EU 43). The majority of our White’s boots 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.
