As mentioned Japan Blue is an experimental brand that wants to come up with new concepts and produce products that can be universally appreciated and adopted into folks’ everyday life. One of the most interesting things I have seen from the brand has been the Hand Dyed Indigo Adventure Boots or Adventure Blue Boots as they are also referred to.
These boots are solid, I mean heavy duty cow-hide boots that should be well fitted to your adventurous life, no matter whether you’re a lumber jack or a city slicker the boots will keep you going. From what I gathered from our friend Katsu, the boots are first very tough due to the heavy duty leather, but adjust to your feet nicely and actually get very comfortable after some wear.
I guess majority of leather boots take some time to adjust on your feet and these are no exception. What makes these shoes different from the rest of the work boots around is the hand dyed finishing. That blue we have grown to love with our jeans adapted and applied on the leather surface of the boots. Just imagine the fading these shoes produce.
On the downside, the shoes don’t come cheap. For 800 USD you can cop a pair of the Japan Made boots, which are available in sizes 26 cm up to 29 cm.
What do you think? Is this the way to go with work boots or should the blue stay on denim? I’m out and once more, thanks to everyone who came to visit us at the Gallery CPH. It was an awesome trip. Cheers!
