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 White's Nomad boots are made of brown chrome excel leather by Horween. "Chrome Excel" refers to chrome tanning, which produces a tough, durable, but soft leather. My first pair of White's Nomad boots are made with brown smooth leather, which has an oil-tanned appearance.
These boots are unlined. 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.
I have discovered that these boots run large. This pair of boots is 1/2 size smaller than my usual boot size, and I still must install a gel insole and wear them with thick socks. Like my other Nomads, 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.
These boots are quite water resistant, too.
