What are the disadvantages?
Day glow the way to go.
Infact If it was a choice between two pairs of shoes exactly the same but one plain black or white and the other a riot of seizure inducing colour but more expensive, I would probably hunt around for the extra pennies.
There is a guy who runs around my way. Always in the same shade of bright orange shoes shorts and vest. He also has a hat and jacket the same shade for the cold weather.
Serious answer here:
I just bought two new pairs of my usual Asics Cumulus, one in white/red and one in black. I usually buy them in white/whatever, never had a black pair before. The white/whatever pairs have layers of colour on the sole which help me to gauge the amount of wear to my shoes - when I've worn through the coloured bit to the darker bit underneath, it's time to replace them. But teh balck pair have solid black soles, which is going to make judging the wear and tear a bit more difficult.
Apart from that, I haven't noticed any difference between the two pairs on especially hot or cold days. I do like the way that the black ones don't show up the dirt though!
Sprint for the line wrote (see)
I love my bright orange Brooks, my asymmetrical Brooks green and blue racing flats and my luminous yellow salomons. Personal preference I guess.
