White’s C409 Smokejumper Stitchdown Construction NFPA Boot


SKU: C409V Category:


A Stitchdown Smokejumper Built for The Season at Hand or Ahead

A boot backed by the legend of the Original Smokejumper, but now available in an NFPA-certified, stitchdown construction model. As a part of our initiative to stock more ready-to-ship styles in inventory, this addition to our fire line makes it so mid-season mishaps or last-minute needs can be quickly met with the confidence you have in a White’s boot. The stitchdown Smokejumper is hand-lasted and hand-bottomed by our master bootmakers with Vibram’s® Fire & Ice White dot sole on our 4811 Arch-Ease Last. A century of history and research, available now, so you can get to work sooner.

  • 10″ Full Grain Water-Resistant Leather Upper to absorb high impact.
  • Leather Midsole & Shank for a custom fit and feel.
  • Vibram Fire & Ice White Dot Sole for increased safety and security in harsh environments.
  • 4811 Arch-Ease Last with a high arch for optimal comfort.

Stitchdown Construction

Our stitchdown construction type offers a more secure fit and feel than a Goodyear Welted boot, but takes much less time to manufacture than our true hand-sewn stitchdowns. Still hand-lasted and hand-bottomed, the liner of our stitchdown boots is glued down to the bottom of the insole. Then the vamp is turned out, and the midsole and bottom are machine-stitched together through the vamp. Removing the hand-welting process shortens the production time significantly, allowing us to offer a rugged, comfortable boot without the high price of a truly hand-sewn boot.

  • Built to Last

White’s boot last run large. This means most people should take a half size down from their natural shoe size, or Brannock measurement. On our highest arched lasts, a full size may be necessary as the arch support shortens the overall length of the foot during wear.
