So I have a two gloss pairs of hunter boots and strangely the yellow ones are very stiff but the blue ones i have are much softer and more rubbery? why is it that some colors have a different texture and which ones are soft and rubbery?
I don't think it actually varies by colour. I think it varies by batch - different pairs of green ones I've bought differ in stiffness. I think it is due to inconsistencies in the vulcanisation process
Again, I think you are making a mistake by linking this to colour. I've seen green batches which have the wax coating, and green ones that don't. I think you need to appreciate that hunter are not running some mad colour coding process to create boots with very slightly different qualities for each different colour. They are running a batch process with apparently quite wide tolerances, which is producing variations between batches.
(if it is of any comfort, it's literally a textbook example of false correlation from too small a sample size - you assume that one variable (stiffness) is correlated with another (colour) when in fact both are random through the population._
