Flashy Flats

If you’ve been in a runner store recently you probably noticed the big trend in running shoe styles is super bright colors. My newest trainers, for instance, are a solid florescent orange. It’s a little weird slogging along at recovery pace in florescent shoes, because nothing says fast like flash. (Or should I say nothing says look how huge my feet are like florescent shoes. Ok, that’s probably just me.)

Because bold colors symbolize confidence and strength, no type of shoe wears flashy better than racing flats.

So, whether foot flash helps you run faster, flatters your feet or is just something you love this season’s bold and bright flat offerings will not disappoint!

With all running shoes I recommend you head to your local running retailer to be properly fitted. No matter how adorable a pair is, they need to fit you right or they won’t be worth much as a running shoe. That being said, here are links to online retailers for more information on each model and to buy if you’re confident you know what size and style is right for you.
