Double-sided black retzuos

I have heard and my rabbi has seen many people buying these retzuos recently. Is there a special inyan (from Halachic or Kabbalistic) perspective, or are they just for decorative purpose? Has anyone had good/bad experience with them?

There is no special inyan, besides the additional cost.

Is there any problem adopting a new minhog in such a mitzva as tefillin?

I found an opinion in Rambam that says that this method is actually preferred. My question is: is it arrogant for his chassidim to adopt this hiddur, if their Rebbe did not?

Thanks for that excellent tshuva, T613. The above quote especially sticks out.
