Help with Bootcut

I'm currently looking for a decent jean with a subtle bootcut. After some research on these forums i've narrowed it down to 5ep, Nudie rrds and D'artisan sd-105. I normally wear low profile trainers such as adidas italia, Gazelle etc also desert boots and Red wings. Being at the age of 33 i dont want that silhouette which looks like i'm wearing flares, so basically the bootcut needs to be subtle and functional.
The only thing that bothers me about the 5ep is the "greencast" of the denim. On one hand it sounds unique on the other i dont want my jeans to look like they're covered in biker grease. Also with the rrds and studio dartisan is the bootcut very big or does it look like a straight leg with a small bootcut ?
Any help and comments from people who have experience with these jeans would be great

All three work. If you want a classic look, the 5EP is probably your best bet. The color is hard tp

All three are good jeans. If you want a classic look, the 5EP is probably your best bet, and definitely the best bang for your buck, the RRDS the worst (it is a great jean for under $200, but there are better jeans at $265, unless you want your jeans to fade like crazy, in which case, the RRDS is your best bet - they are designed to do so.) The color of the 5EP denim is hard to describe. It is not really "greencast", but is much more 3 dimensional than that. In has a nearly imperceivable green/grey and purple cast under different lighting. Under natural light, it is a very dark indigo.
