White's Semi-Dress shoes were originally designed in the 1930's for desk workers looking for a light utility shoe that could be used during workdays spent on foot. These boots are made to do the job of both a work-boot and a dress shoe, allowing their wearers to move between rough streets and offices.
Just as in the 1930's, these boots are made without the use of synthetic materials. These boots have the "Arch-ease" design that is a signature of White's boots, meaning that they have a very generous support for the arch of the foot to give your foot a good support during long hours of wear. They are also hand welted, a technique that is considered one of the finest in shoe making. For this technique the shoemakers at White's use a thick "Irish Linen" thread to welt the uppers. In addition instead of using a steel shank White's makes use of a stacked leather shank, creating the distinct "bellowed waist" shape on the underside of the outsole.
The construction of these boots makes them easy to be rebuilt if needed - all parts except for the quarter can be easily replaced by sending the boots back to White's for repair. All of these aspects makes sure that a pair of White's will last for a very, very long time.
