    Default Warrington 6000 USAR boots

    I got these boots on a recent deployment, and love them. I was wondering if anyone know about dyeing the yellow portion of them black. Would this hamper the barrier effects of the fabric? I emailed Warrington and am waiting on a response. Anyone know anything further?
    Thanks.

    Dunno about the changing color stuff but as a USAR guy myself I do have a couple of questions.

    How heavy are those bad boys? Are they comfortable for extended wear? And if you know are they somewhat resistant to slag and spark fallout?

    They are much lighter that the Iron Age boot, and I think alot more comfortable. Don't get me wrong, I like the Iron Age boot alot, and always have, but this one being lighter and just as if not more comfortable, that is why I want to change the color of it, so I can wear it at the fire station.
    As for the the sparks and slag, I'm not sure, the fabric almost feels like bunker gear material.
