there actually are dyes for rubber, vinyl, and plastic. I know they're used quite frequently on boats. just google "rubber dye" and lots of options will come up. some aren't cheap though...

what are aggressive skates?

Or at the very least some kind of cautionary tale

I already know what dye to get ETC. Just wondering if anyone has done it, I can make a tutorial its actually super easy. Boil the dye in a pot you dont need, Or a Dyepot. Then drop in the grips. Let them dry. Condition them and RTR

As long as the thread stays on topic and doesn't compare anyone to a group of mid-20th century germans I think we're ok.

I didn't understand how fulfulling a conversation without free thought could be until the BF Mods showed me the way.

$315 for a pair of skates? Really?

Why not buy some grips in the color you want?
