It's just a shitty picture.

At a glance, I'd say red because of the laces.
After a longer view, I'd go with 'dark' pink, because of the sole.

It looks red to me, but I have brought home things from the store before that look red only to find they're pink in different lighting.

It's pretty close to a red, but definitely slightly pink, at least in the image. Though it may not be as pink IRL if the temp of the light was slightly higher than what they were shooting for, which seems to be the case, but just very slightly.

Ahh. Makes sense.
Go check them out in a store?
Or buy them and send them back if they aren't correct? This isn't exactly a difficult situation :)
Lol it shouldn’t be right?

This whole thing started when I insisted I take my wife to a sport store to try Nike shoes with React, since I think the Reacts are the most comfortable material I’ve ever had in a shoe. She didn’t take to the women’s Reacts like I did (they were also a different style shoe than my flyknits so there are a few variables at work), but she absolutely loved the Winflo 5s. The store didn’t have the colors she liked, so we looked online, and these are the ones that speak to her the most - however, we cannot find “real” pictures of the shoe.

This is probably the most first world problem thread Era has had this year now that I’m reading what I wrote. Thank you Era for appeasing me in this small weird matter.

My screen has pretty good color accuracy. For one, I'd be surprised if they even look like that in person. But to me, anyway, especially after staring at the laces, it looks more like a red.



I'd call that pink. Definitely not a typical red.
That color changes drastically depending on where you sample from... you can get bright or deep reds off of it...

I sampled a bunch of different places, and in every case the hue marker was nowhere near the very top (where the "true" red is).

In almost all cases, it was roughly where it is in that screenshot, i.e. about 1/3 of the way between red and fuchsia.

Ones in the OP could be red and it's the lighting of the shot but the ones in the pic a bit up are pink as fuck.

I'm leaning towards the ones in the OP also being pink, maybe a different shade of pink but still more pink than red.

They are pink, the soles are so unambiguously pink that they should have settled this right then and there. The 'red' everyone is picking up with the laces is just an optical illusion caused by the lighting.
