I have resisted the bright colored running shoes...until now. I don't find anything wrong with the bright colors, but I am just not a bright colored person. If given the choice, I would choose a more subtle shoe. Unless there is no choice and you are standing in your running store, knowing about all the discounts you get, and knowing that there are two perfect pairs of shoes waiting for you. I had no choice; I went for it.
As I mentioned the other day, I intended to buy the Mizuno Wave Inspires and possibly the Wave Riders. I was open to other suggestions for a neutral shoe, but I figured my feet are used to the Inspires, so the Riders will not be that different. So the Riders are the pinkish (red?) shoe and the Inspires are blue.
I am wondering if adding darker laces to the Inspires would tone the shoe down just a little?
I had a choice between these all red/pink ones and the same pair in an aqua, but with really bright pink trim. I am not really a pink fan, and the pink was more subtle in these shoes (if you can believe that!).
Do you like bright shoes?
I have to admit on the treadmill last night (I was tired of the cold), looking down every once in a while and seeing the blue shoes did make me smile just a bit.
