Default Choosing the color of a skate is like choosing a name

Hello everyone again, I have another dilemma with me

So, there are 2 colors for Seba High, black or blue. I can't decide as the type of person to take the most time choosing a name for a profile or character or anything that you can custom choose for yourself. I view the options as a way to express which colors or designs may reflect the type of person you are. Just to be sure, I want to get something that is like me.

I like the blue, but I'm afraid of the color fading as there is nearly always sun in Hawaii (does it fade after a while?). I like black, but I'm thinking that reflects a more mature look onto me, lacking color.

So the thing is, I probably want the blue, but people may view me differently because of the blue hue. Or I could go with black, of the "boring" look to me. I mean, I think the design is neat, but just 2 colors on the boot defeats the whole reflection on you thing. I believe more color gives it more life, excitement, as less doesn't thought again, that's how I think.

What do you think?

You want the blue. Buy the blue. Don't buy based on what others think. Buy what YOU want. That is the reason for the choice.

Don't let what others 'think' or how they 'view' you be a part of your decision. Be true to yourself and make yourself happy. As for the fade factor I'm sure there is some sort of protective leather/boot stuff you could find that would keep em looking good.

Just get blue, it won't fade like you think.

But if you do worry what I think, get black. As it is like waaay cooler.

To be honest, I miss the simple black/white combo now that I have the glitzier silver/black Igors.

Um, is it true that there is a red/white Seba High? because after scanning through pictures on google images, I see them but they aren't available for sale. I read somewhere that they were limited edition too. Does anyone know about this?

They look so.. good *w* I'd take red if there was in skatecrazy lol
Actually I wouldn't mind if they made an orange one O: !!

Orange is cool... but then again, I'm Dutch...

Ron, don't make my friends fight over costumers! Although I don't think skatesupplies will ship to Hawaii... It would be an expensive joke for the buyer anyway, I'd think...

The red ones are sold in Russia cheaper than black or blue as "Chinese internal market model". The reds' price is lower and they are quite rare. The people close to exclusive Seba distributor in Russia say cheaper materials are used for the Chinese model, but that is debated. The same is with Seba FRM.

I don't think the red and white ones are distributed in the U.S., though they are definitely available abroad.

Cool Black

I've chosen black over blue, because I don't really like the shade of blue actually (as an art person). The black shows more value with the white than the blue does with the white, so it is more powerful, stands out. I like that feature, so I will stick with it . Not to mention, when the blue plastic parts are scratched, they appear lighter and less... of what it used to be like. I'm fine with the black being scratched, if not, black is harder to get dirty than blue since it's darker.. ehh well that's pretty much my conclusion.
