They don't make them in multi-colors.  Red or Blue with a couple in black is all that is offered.  The one I have which is thirteen years old needs to be retired, which by the way is red.  I thought I just might be different by going with the black.


 

 

Yes, even more of a reason to go with the black.  Change it up!  It will feel more new that way!  :-)

 


So far it appears the black has it.  Incidentally, have I ever mentioned to you that I am a New York gal.  Born and raised there, lived in Richmond Hill, Queens, spent summers on Long Island where my wonderful father built a summer house.  Left N.Y. in 1965 to live in CA because of my husband's, job.


 

@Lindsays Grandma, I have a soft spot for Queens since much of my father's family lived there and it was a big part of my childhood.  And I was raised on Long Island.  It's always nice to "meet" another NY girl!  :-)


That says we have a lot in common.  Considering how many people post on these forums what are the chances two people lived in the same city and town?  Loved it on Long Island, made lots of friends from Riverhead and Wading River, sure miss those summers at the beach.


 

I feel so fortunate that I had such a great childhood.  Long Island was a wonderful place to grow up.  (Have I actually grown up?  Some days I'm not so sure...... )  :-)

 

I loved summers at the beach, and feel fortunate that I'm able to have the best of both worlds now.

 

(I have family in California, btw.  Mostly San Francisco area, but other parts too.)  :-)

If it were me, I'd get the blue one but since you've eliminated that choice, I'd get what you want....which sounds like it is the black one.  BTW, don't be scared that it will look like all the others and someone may get it mixed up with theirs and take it.  People hang all sorts of trinkets and small stuffed animals from the front bar.  I noticed this at the two nursing home/assisted living facilities I've been in recently.  


To be honest I never gave a thought about losing it or getting it mixed up with others.  I am never anyplace where there are groups of folks with walkers and since I don't plan on going to an assisted living place any time soon I won't worry about it, but thanks for your response.  The black still looks good to me.

I was in the San Fernando Valley for forty years and we moved to AZ in 2005.  I was a wreck for a long time, missing CA for a few years.  Still miss it but won't go back, too expensive.

Re: HELP ME TO DECIDE A COLOR-RED OR BLACK

Whichever color u buy -- u can put stickers (decals) all over it - so u always know that it's yours. I like RED (more cheerful).

Re: HELP ME TO DECIDE A COLOR-RED OR BLACK

I would go with the BLACK walker .... less obvious than the red .... if you want something that you can quickly identify get the black walker & put some colored masking tape on the bottom near the wheels ... not a lot but, just enough for you to see when you need to 😁

If you prefer black, then you should go with that!  I would go with red because that is my favorite color!  Of course, black is classy and goes with everything!!!
