I got these in red a few days ago and the colors are very vibrant. the performance of the shoe is amazing and they are the best shoe that i have skated. they are very light of course because of the lunarlon sole. the laces are just up high enough so that i don't catch and tear them, which is awesome because i go through shoe laces very fast. this is also one of the most comfortable shoe ive ever been in. overall, it is definitely worth the price.
