It’s funny how things come and go in trends. When I was a pre-teen, crazy-colored shoes were a thing — I seem to remember having a pair of teal Reeboks (high-tops, of course) with purple edging that made me feel invincible. Then… I didn’t think about my running shoes for a long time, at least beyond fit, comfort, and when it was time to replace, until a few years ago when I noticed that everyone seemed to have plain black running sneakers and my gray and pink ones seemed kind of boring. So it’s interesting to note now that bright, crazy colors seem to be in fashion again, with a lot of brands either offering bright, in-your-face colors like these fun hot pink ones from Nike, or crazy, garish color combinations that are a far cry from the plain black shoes that were so popular just a few years ago. (For example, this, this, or this.) What say you, ladies — yea or nay for crazy color sneakers? Will you stick with plain black? Just go with whatever’s on sale? (As a runner I’ve often just bought last year’s model of the same sneakers at a discount in whatever color was available and called it a day.) What ARE your favorite exercise shoes (and what are you wearing them for, and are you correcting any foot problems?) (Personally, this overpronating runner with bunions wears ASICS GEL-Nimbus for running, and I’m less fussy about what I lift in.) The pictured shoes are $150, at Nordstrom.

(If you like Nike Pegasus, note that this very similar hue of hot pink is marked down to $70.)
