    Here is a confusing pair of White's Farmer-Rancher boots, that are "tried on new" with detached tags & black nylon laces, but no original box. Catch & release on this from ebay, details were scarce on original ad, so I will try to provide as much detail here as I can.

    $275 Shipped CONUS - Pay Pal "Normal" - what I have in them

    Details:
    • Not stamped with size; this is not typical for White's.
    • Stamping instead says: "255 5 11 18" - suspect the "11-18" is a date code (see photo)
    • Left Boot seems to be "11 A" - I can get it on and laced, it's very snug, but can be worn (my feet are typically 11 C in White's to be comfortable).
    • Right Boot seems to be "10.5 AA" - I can just barely get my foot into it, much too tight in the width, and the boot appears slightly shorter too.
    • When received, boots are in good condition however leather seemed dry but not cracked at all.
    • I oiled these several times with Fiebling's leather treatment that soaked in well, they have softened noticeably.
    • Have mini-Vibram soles and Quabug heels - in new condition.
    • Hand lasted, Hand bottomed, stitch-down construction boots
    • Boots both outside measure ~4.5" wide at widest part, and LH ~ 13.75" long, RH ~13.5" long

    I had a pair of white's boots made with left and right boots in different sizes. No size is stamped on the boos. I went through Backer Boots and paid no upgrade for using two different lasts

    I suspect that is what happened here. I tried to ask what the size was of the boots before buying them, the seller could only tell me "11" I took a chance at the price point.

    Now listed on ebay too, but a better deal here:
