Unfortunately, when we run out of the colors for stock, we choose black, our most popular color. Often times, we run out of inventory within days and our buyers are upset when they don't receive a hoverboard at all, especially at the discounted price that we offer. That's why we choose to send black if we have no other colors available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I definitely understand that color choice is important so we try as much as possible to accommodate your request. If you still feel upset, feel free to get back in touch and we can arrange for a return.
