I've always had a thing for fluorescent colors, they really wake up my eyes-
so I don't mind neon accents or coloring on sneakers.

I like them but I think some of the colors would most def clash with some of my scrubs with patterns. Not bad, overall though.

I tend to keep my athletic shows for a few years. The neon is too trendy now and in a year or two everyone will see that my shoes are 'so last year'. I would rather buy shows that can last a few years without screaming '2013 trend'.

Some of them can look very tacky; especially when they use two different clashing neon colors in one shoes.
There are some that I like though.

I love it. However, I've always loved neon green and black so I got one in that color combo.

Mine only last a few months!

My current shoes are purple, neon green, and grey.

When the snow's not too deep I wear athletic shoes for work. No, I don't like the bright/neon colors at all! At 67 I'm too old for neon shoes.

Well I actually wear running shoes to run in ;-) I'm pretty sure the brighter and more obnoxious the shoe, the faster I run, randomized clinical trials and everything! So yes, I like brightly colored running shoes ;-)
