Wow, what are the specs for these, if you don't mind?
They look great. I like their casual look so much. Was it a bad idea to go with black Vibram 2021 soles instead?
With respect to the contrast, you are right. Your boots would have had a high contrast with black soles. I also have many shoes with white or beige soles as I love a comfort of Vibram christy, 2021 or Red Wing soles. However, as I get older, I feel like wearing shoes with darker outsoles for some reason. To give up those comfortable outsoles is quite difficult for me as I sometimes do physical task at my work. I often wonder why many shoes are not made on darker Vibram outsoles to reduce a little contrast against upper body colour. I've seen black or blown 2021 soles though, not with christy soles yet. Long story short, I simply wanted to see your boots on a little darker Vibram soles. Nevertheless, your boots are outstanding!
