Argh, that crepe sole has really gotten me thinking. Is the natural color the only option? Could I have a different color crepe? I'd like that idea - give the thing some kick. Maybe a darker shade of grey?
Dear LA Guy,
To my knowledge, crepe rubber soles only come in natural colour, but they should be able to have their edges stained. This would mean that the welt and sole edges can be stained in three colours: brown, dark brown and black. Natural or black edges would be the only viable option for grey suede, I think.
However, if you plan to kick some serious ass with these boots, crepe rubber soles sounds a little on the soft side to me. Commandos would make a much more evident imprint...
