White's Patented Arch Ease™ Support
There's never been anything quite like it for all day comfort.
If your feet have ever suffered at the end of the day,you'll find new comfort in White's Boots. Why White's? The reason is generationsold: uncommon workmanship and White's patented Arch Ease™ design. A design that duplicates the natural contour of your foot.
To appreciate this natural phenomenon, take a moment to sit down. Now cross your legs and relax. Notice the angle formed by your legand foot. As customarily believed, it is not a right angle. Instead, your relaxed foot points slightly downward. In fact you can see your foot's relaxed angle detailed in the Arch Ease™ illustration. Observe the high heel and arch supporting the foot in its natural resting position. This critical heel placement affords generous arch support when positioned wellunder the weight-bearing bones of the leg. Setting the heel ahead also shortens the arch, adding dramatic strength.
Best of all, wearing a new pair of White's will allow you to feel the extra Arch Ease™ support missing from ordinary boots. Especially when you lift heavy objects or put pressure on your feet.
Now, at the end of a hard day your feet will feel good! And that's what White's Boots are all about.
Unique Boot Fit
Slip into each boot, fold tongue and lace snugly, following the procedure pictured. Then stand with full weight evenly distributed on both feet and check toe length. You should have 5/8" to 3/4" space between the end of your toes and the boot. The ball of your foot should be positioned at the ball of the boot. Note the loose leather over your toes. This will draw down considerably as the boots are worn.
The fit? Snug. Snug from the ball of your foot back through the heel. In fact, your entire foot may feel bandaged around the middle. It's normal. That's simply White's patented Arch Ease™ design reducingfoot fatigue while providing you with all-day comfort and support. Remember, due to the all-leather construction, White's Boots will shorten in length and widen as worn. Your boots will fit correctly if proper care was taken during your home measurement process. (Do not wear boots outside unless you are surethey fit as suggested. Soiled or scuffed boots cannot be returned.)
