    Can someone point me to an example of this theme successfully integrated with Twitter Bootstrap, Skeleton, Foundation, or similar responsive framework?

    Any reason you need those combinations?

    Best bet is to make a list of what you need your theme to do, then hunt for something that does that; don't worry about the buzz-words, just look for solid-looking themes active author participation.

    And if all else fails, you can always do a keyword search in the WP Themes repos:
    http://wordpress.org/themes/search.php?q=%2B%22html5+boilerplate%22+Bootstrap+Skeleton+Foundation+responsive

    Good luck,

    I'm doing this now but basically adding all the bootstrap css into the child theme's styles.css should do it.

    And then
    wp_register_script('custom_script', get_bloginfo('stylesheet_directory') . '/js/bootstrap.min.js', array('jquery'), '1.0' );

    in the child's functions.php.

    Then there will be a bit of grid / template tweaking in the child theme.

    Oh I am actually glad someone followed up on this thread. I never quite found exactly what I was looking for.

    So I ended up just building a completely custom theme from scratch using Boilerplate here and Bootstrap combined with the Navwalker here to get the menu functioning as it should.

    You can see a working example here. The example site is incomplete content-wise but you can see that Bootstrap and the fundamentals of the site's theme functions as it should.

    That said I did find some that were similar. There was one that got close but forget what it was. I ended up just doing it myself out of frustration.
