Who wears extreme color running shoes?

Posted on: September 27, 2012

Extreme color on running shoes are lining the shelves of stores across the world.   Runners wearing the crazy colors are as bright as a psychedelic rainbow or stick out like a sore thumb.

The consensus is mixed on the yellows, greens, blues, and oranges that catch your eye.

The Running Store, Gainesville, VA reports that:

1.  School kids love them

2. The fun 30-40 year olds like them

3. The over 40 crowd shy away from them

Nike, Saucony, and Asics are popular brands that are popping with color.  New Balance is more conservative with the traditional, blacks, grays, and whites, with an occasional splash of brightness.

Neon, glow in the dark, and reflective accents are safer for running, however some people find them distracting.

About two years ago, my daughter, who works in the fashion industry of New York City, told me that the neon was coming.  NYC can start the trends that may take years to hit the rest of the world.  

Well it’s finally hit the rest of the world.  The London 2012 Olympic Games displayed the hot fashion in the summer.

I hate to admit that I prefer the white shoes with just a tiny hint of color.  My daughter would call me boring.  

What do you think of the bright and neon colors of running shoes?

When it comes to running shoes, I just go for the ones that feel the best… My current pair is fuscia and orange. I try not to look at them too much;)

When the shoe fits — just run in it. I have tried on many brands and Nike running shoes will make me “just do it” (great ad campaign). Thank goodness they still have a few boring colors!
