White's Semi-Dress 375 - 55 - Vibram Mini Lug - British Tan CXL
The White's x Division Road British Tan CXL 375 Semi-Dress is a 7" exclusive pattern based off the original and shorter Depression-era boots worn by store clerks and factory workers that were built to face the challenge of week-in, week-out wear required in the 1930's. This adapted high Semi-Dress pattern comes with the signature quarter shape with a stitched-in counter and back stay, yet has been evolved with an integrated pull loop and added height to provide function and durability for the workshop or outdoors while remaining appropriate for daily duty in a modern world. These Division Road White's are characterized by the versatile British Tan Chromexcel with a bronze-brown undertone that will patina and darken through continued exposure as deep scuffs and high wear areas reveal the lighter color of the natural core beneath. Chromexcel by Horween is the original pull-up leather developed from a nearly century-old secret recipe of techniques, materials and finishes and is known for its flexibility, comfort, and durability. This boot is designed in collaboration with Master Shoemaker and now CEO, Eric Kinney, to hallmark the quintessentially Northwest stitchdown construction tradition using White's unique hand-sewn and all-leather builds with our functional design approach that honors the original craftsmanship, history, and lifetime durability with a fresh perspective. This higher Semi-Dress uses the popular Arch-Ease 55 Last known for providing trademark support with a more approachable break-in and having an elegantly classic round toe shape with an accommodating forefoot and moderate profile that matches a wide variety of feet. We exclusively enhanced their hand-sewn welted methods with a tonally corresponding Natural CXL welt to match the natural finished leather midsole and block-logger heel with a slight sculpt that emphasizes their completely unique approach to making lifetime work boots. A multi-paneled upper allows for comprehensive rebuilds, and the low profile Vibram 430 Mini Lug Sole provides high traction and longevity for all terrains, combined with a single row hand-sewn stitchdown to allow for greater flexibly, comfort, and a clean aesthetic for the long-haul. Finally, this exclusive Semi-Dress comes with an outdoor-purposed, fully gusseted tongue for the rugged and is refined with brass eyelets and a leather pull loop, finished with a custom White's collar stamp and WB x DR collaboration insole stamp. Made as a hallmark to White's unaltered, hand-sewn traditions and customized to Division Road specifications, this 375 Semi-Dress has a polished aesthetic for urban environs, built for the workshop and woodlands.

This is a hand-sewn, hand-welted stitchdown workwear boot made to withstand a lifetime in challenging conditions, with a focus on durability first. Irregularity is indicative of this rare boot making process and as such, each pair is unique. We suggest our customers embrace the character, hand grade details, and variation of each pair of boots, as that is what makes them special. This is not the product for those seeking a highly refined or lighter-weight build. For more information on White’s production, see our White’ Factory Tour.
White's sizing is consistent to our old grade manufacturers and the 55 Last is frequently equal to a Viberg, or Tricker's for most feet. As a general rule when sizing for White's, we suggest you select a half (.5) size down from a common US boot like Red Wing or Alden, or one-and-a-half (1.5) sizes down from a common US sneaker like Nike or New Balance.
