I really wasn't overjoyed with this trend when it began but I've grown to like it. I'm alittle surprised it has taken off the way it has but would rather wear neon running shoes over a pastel any day. It might be nice though if there were a few more options for people who work in athletic shoes and still would like something with color but a be more conservative.
Regardless, its pretty neat to look at some of the color combos on the shelves right now.

I like the trend, but it isn't super practical for me. I tend to be colorful in my clothing choices. Neon can clash.

I don't care on way or the other... fit is what is most important, not color.

I like anything that makes me more visible to motorists.

If the hot pink on my shoes clashes with the neon green of my top ... Oh, well! Better to clash than to get hit by a car.

I mostly hate it. I've seen too many people wearing them with clashing colors, in an attempt at a fashion statement. I'm cool with seeing them on runners at night, regardless of if they clash or not.

Hubby just got a new pair of Nike that came in grey and navy blue combo. I like them better than the totally white. The neon I am not too fond of except maybe for teens.

The neon blue and silver. (not together!) That's pretty much it for me and neon colored shoes.

I hate being the center of attention, and those are certainly attention getting, so I won't consider buying them.

The colors don't bother me as long as the style is cool.
