I don't "hate' them, but since I think they are both ugly and rather tacky, I won't wear them, nor would I give them as gifts to anyone I care about!

I happen to like them cause like another poster said better for a vehicle to see you with and I also wear neon running and walking clothes so I can be seen better . some mornings it is rather foggy here and we need that extra thing to be seen . So yes really do like them .

They clash with my yoga pants and gym clothes.

Regardless, its pretty neat to look at some of the color combos on the shelves right now.
LOVE!

I hold a job which requires me to walk constantly -- probably do over ten miles daily -- and at the age of 63. I consider myself a user of "disposable shoes"; a pair costs $20-$25 and lasts about 3 months.

The pair I'm wearing (out) right now are black with an electric-blue stipe; but about 4 out of 5 pair I've bought in recent years are white. A couple of my co-workers have noticed and commented (favorably), but next time around, I'll probably go back to "straight vanilla".

I like them a lot. But a neon color and black is my favorite.
