Default Yellow Anyone?

This is either the ugliest or coolest looking boot Bont makes. I can't decide which. Certainly makes a statement. I think I like it though the more I stare at it. Better be fast if you're going to wear a boot like this.

Black frame with yellow urethane and black hubs to top it off. Are you going to get them?

Saw a pair passing me this past Sunday. Had Herb Gayle attached to them.

That's too cool. I personally would not wear them, but it would make me happy to see people in them.

Now if they were bright green or orange, I'd go for it. Not that I will likely be good enough to justify getting Vaypors...But everyone around me knows if something is green or orange I'll probably buy it. Doubly so if it's shiny. There is probably something fundamentally wrong with me in this regard.

Thanks alx!

Second to last pic can use a couple captions:
"Bont Vaypors in yellow make you fly!"
Seriously, the two skaters in yellow boots are both off the ground

Or "Get back, imma do somethin Crazy!"

Yellow is the fastest color.

I've been on yellow custom Vaypors for about 5 years now. I absolutely love the yellow, but when I get molded for new customs on November 12th or 13th, I think I might go for some of those cool shiny silver Vaypor Zeros. It's a tough decision, though!

After flying into Nashville Tenn. I stopped by Asphalt Beach over Labor day weekend because there is no speed/skating shop in my city(like most cities).... I think they had those in stock on the shelf (no 4 week wait) . I wasn't looking for yellow vaypors but they definitely caught my eye as a very nice looking boot! Here's the link and you can even see them in the background picture!

P.S. Steve, I like your shop I could've stayed for hours! Very nice selection!
