If someone, say Alyssa, decided to wear these new colorful boots: she'd have one pair for short, one for long and how many for her exhibition/show programs? Not feasible IMHO.
I've often wondered why the skaters (who could afford it) didn't break in more than one pair at a time. It would sure cut down on the drama when you have a problem with your competition pair - you wouldn't have to break in a pair at the last minute. If a skater has stopped growing, there is no reason why she/he couldn't have multiple pairs, whether in colors or not.
