These Brown Dress Smoke Jumpers are about as classic a pair of White’s boots as you will get. The Brown dress starts with a shine (which can be kept with care) but gives way with wear to a really nice worn brown undertone.
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 Smoke Jumpers have a bit more volume on top of the foot so do feel bigger than other White’s boots but in terms of length and width they are very similar. You could get away with a half size down from the C461 last and Semi Dress last due to the volume in the Smoke Jumper.
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). 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.
