What colour are these trainers?




What colour would you say these trainers are, not exact shades, I mean Red, Pink Orange etc? I have a dispute on eBay over the colour I described, would like a few opinions. Thanks

I mean in more general terms what would you say they are, Orange, pink, red etc? If you bought these from a shop and they were described as Orange would you have agree or not?

On Google, the code for these trainers Adidas S80330 from 90% of retailers who sold these described them as Orange, there actual title was 'Sunglo'. Curious as to how people see these more pink than Orange

Assuming your lighting is providing a fair representation of the color:




Looks like salmony-peach to me.

Looks more pink than orange to me. Either way, they're pretty ugly.

They are a completely inappropriate color for trainers.

Is "ugly" a color?

Re: What colour are these trainers?

Everyone is going to give a different answer, since everyone’s screen is color calibrated differently. I’m viewing this on an iPhone. Someone else may be using a 4K monitor, etc.

The only way to know is to get the Pantone color number (maybe on manufacturer’s website?)

This is a common issue in the printing industry.

Re: What colour are these trainers?

The more technologically advanced a civilization is, the more unique color names it has.

Almost every society has these 11 color names: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white, gray, brown, and pink.

Of those 11, I would say the shoe is orange.

You're just making stuff up. The English language didn't have a word for 'orange' until the fruits were first seen.

"Colour"?

"Trainers"?

What kind of foreign BS is this?!


It's salmon.
