Hello all,

First off... I bought a pair of BRAND NEW yellow 395's from OffTheEdge! Mad props to him for extremely nice boots and thanks for the Riedell Shirt and the East Coast Customs Shirt!!

I need opinions and other ideas please!!! So I want to add black accent colors to the boot. I like the boots, I just want to add something to them. I have experimented with this dye from Germany that works great. I had no issues as I have dyed an old pair of 595's i had laying around and its a dye not a paint. I just want to know peoples opinion on the picture below. BTW the photochop is a 5 min job as there is no real reason to spend time on it as you all get the idea!

Fyi - Plate will be black anodized aluminum with yellow cushions and Wheels will prob be Polished Yellow Interceptors

Thanks in advance!

Let the bumble bee jokes begin!!!

I like all yellow too. Then maybe some black or white wheels on there to accent them.

They look awesome as is. Dye them AFTER you scuff them up.

Forget the black, all yellow looks better.
If you're going to dye them I think the 2nd pic looks better than the 3rd.

I think maybe just dye the sole black like in pic 2, without the other black on the flap.

I wonder how it would look if you dyed those 2 strips on the side (between the stitching)?

I think that color scheme breaks up all that yellow well! If you look at other boots of this type pictured elsewhere around this forum, it's always the very front of those flaps that gets scuffed up & black will be easy to keep looking good. Derrick...:rolleyes:...

I'd say this one with the backstay dyed black also. That'd be pretty nice.

black wheels not yellow with those.....IMO....bling hubs
yellow wheels IMO would be too much yellow
yellow plugs/cushions and bearing covers.......:wink:
