    I suspect not much can live off anything covered with concrete dust and residue. You're probably safe from mold. If it does show up, I've had good luck rubbing down molding leather with a vinegar dampened cloth.

    Oh these really caught my attention. Sorry for bumping this but those look gorgeous. I'm flat-footed myself and I always struggle with proper shoes. Thanks to the Willpowerpeak I was so glad to find out that there are brands which have specific shoes for people like me. But where I can find a pair of these as you have? Or can you suggest me a shoemaker? Thanks in advance!

    Bakershoe.com is used by a lot of folks to size and buy White’s boots. You can also check out White’s own website. I bought mine from White’s Ebay front. https://ebay.com/usr/whitesriver

    They have several lasts supposedly good for wide flat feet. The 55, the Northwest, 1970, MP, and 610. I have the 55 Semi Dress. They make specific lasts for women too but I don’t know anything about them.

    it’s going to be a wet one, so I opted for my White’s farmer-ranchers.

    Going with the old standard black harness Iron Rangers: the gateway drug of boot collecting. It’s funny; I have two pairs of IRs, have had both for 8 or 9 years. The amber harness pair broke in almost immediately and are as comfortable as sneakers. This pair took over 5 years of admittedly intermittent wear to become at all comfortable.

    They look good in black, though....almost enough to make me consider another pair

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] pulled trigger on these. These HH Brown made ATF boots still uses the traditional veg tanned, spray painted leather that’s seen on many eBay 50s jackets, by Ward, Sears et al. I really want to know where the leather is sourced & see if one can make jackets out of it the thinner grades of course).

    These ATF boots have one characteristic, the single layered leather sole combined with the Goodyear rubber creates a very stiff bottom. You have to bend it repeatedly to make it wearable

    It’s been awhile since posting these.
    The jumpers are getting some licks.
    I get more compliments on these boots from all ages than any other.
    Be well. Bowen
