    Well, dye and Ourys are cheap. Maybe this thread could turn into a fun tutorial?

    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?

    and sure, give it a try. as ADSR said, maybe some interesting tutorial can come from this.

    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?
