These USA-made boots are 12 inches high, and are hand-constructed by White's Boots of Spokane, Washington, USA. White's boots are known for their rugged durability.
These boots are made of thick, durable leather and are unlined. The leather is "brown smooth" which has an oil-tanned appearance. I have a second pair of White's Nomad boots in brown chrome excel leather, shown here.
They have a 2-inch heel (made that high by specifying an added heel lift) and a Vibram® 100 big lug sole for superb traction for use when riding a motorcycle. The sole is both sewn on as well as screwed in. The boots have one buckle at the top of the shaft for adjusting the fit, but they have a naturally wide calf circumference, so no adjustment is required. The single strap with buckle across the instep defines engineer boots.
The only downfall is that these boots are darn heavy -- even heavier than their Wesco Boss competitors of the same size and height. Wearing heavy boots can be difficult if a lot of walking is required. But for casual, every-day motorcycle riding without much walking, these boots are fine. They are exceptionally well-built and will last forever.
Pics above how these boots are worn with jeans over them. Pics below are how the boots look at their full 12 inch height.
