Considering that they also make red and green dainite soles, I'd be somewhat surprised if they didn't also make some kind of blue.
Of course finding them is a different question.

There's blue gumlite vibram sole available but I think it would look pretty horrific for what you're planning to do.

First pair coming Monday- giddy with excitement!

 

Can someone direct me to the "break in procedure"? I've searched and can't seem to locate it.

 

Cheers,

"6-7 months"? I'll believe it when I see it. I asked about the cigar indy boots I pre-ordered in March and was told they just went into production. It will be another four months.

I think OP is referring to the whole "walk on carpet" procedure and whatnot until you're absolutely sure the size works for you... or something like that?

I decided on the PTB in Whiskey. I had just bought a tan chino summer suit and wanted something to match and wear this spring/summer. Seeing those beauts above makes me pleased with my decision!
