Light Up the Night in Reflective Running Shoes
Running is our time to reflect—so make sure your shoes are paying their dues! These styles boast hi-vis fabrics and shiny detailing to give you one more layer of safety when you’re eating up miles before breakfast or taking a spin at dusk. Light up the night in one of these poppin’ bright picks.
Brooks’ Nightlife Shoes
This collection takes three Brooks styles and gives them a little extra pizzazz to really make you a stand-out. The Ravenna 5, Glycerin 12 and PureFlow 3 all boast an upper that works its hardest when the sun goes down (plus laces that are fully reflective). And what’s great about this collection is how encompassing it can be of all runners looking to run happy. The Ravenna is a guidance shoe, perfect for mild to moderate overpronators. The Glycerin is a neutral shoe that still packs plenty of cush underfoot to keep feet protected. Finally, the PureFlow, also a neutral pick, is more of a minimalist style that brings the runner closer to the road for a more nimble ride. No matter which is your solemate, you’ll find hi-vis protection ready to light the way.
ASICS Lite-Show Series
New for the fall season, the Gel-Kayano 21 has a Lite-Show style that comes equipped with mega wattage. ASICS’ iconic shoe was updated for its big 2-1 with the newest rendition of the brand’s FluidRide midsole and Orthlite sockliner. This winning combo promises a light and stable ride for mild to moderate overpronators. The upper is also a touch more secure because of the improved FluidFit material that stretches every way to give you a glove-like fit mile after mile. And with the Lite-Show detailing, the shoe becomes an even bolder pick! Not only is the upper reflective, but also the gel in the rearfoot and forfoot glows in the dark. You can also find Lite-Show detailing in the Gel-Nimbus 16 and GT-2000 2.
Ready. Set. Glow in two of Saucony’s most iconic styles. The Kinvara 5 and Ride 7 are getting the star-studded treatment with Viziglo uppers. This material gives the shoes all around visibility without compromising the buttery smooth fit and feel the styles are known for. Both are for neutral runners, or those whose ankles don’t collapse inward upon footstrike. Whether you want the stripped-down feel of the Kinvara or the extra padding of the Ride, Viziglo will help see you through miles to come.
