Re: just bought these from ebay.

nice.........look like they are painted ? hope not paint will rub off, and even anodizing will wear unless they aren't a decent mil of thickness, still a nice personalization

Re: just bought these from ebay.

They look good... BUT. IF they are anodized with the sun and w/time they are gonna start getting purpleish. I dont know about the color fading w/your heels.. Just try them and see what happens :biggthumpup:

Black Anodizing shouldn't fade and shouldn't fade to purple either, but it would depend on what type of dye they actually used and how long they set the parts in the dye, if they fade the easiest way to remove an anodized finish at home would be a product containing LYE, commonly found in household drain openers, soak the parts in lye for 5-15 minutes depending on the thickness and then smooth out the rough finish with 320 grit, wallah ! clean bare aluminum finish.
