You must be dealing with a really inept dealer. Or someone that wants to sell you what is on his shelf. My price list (Dec 7 2015) shows the redline w/ white or black kangotan leather and red EVA foam midsole as an option. Not all the color lab leathers fall into the "nice" category, although I have seen most of them and they do. You will have to do your homework to find out if the colors you want are available in the really soft leathers.
