Bright pink are the fastest

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!

My orange Mizuno Wave Harriers are way faster than my white Asics...

My off road shoes started off dark grey and blue with some fluorescent trimming.  They are now much the same but with a brown hue... The white ones end up with revolting brown bits due to my love of vaseline!

I love my bright orange Brooks, my asymmetrical Brooks green and blue racing flats and my luminous yellow salomons. Personal preference I guess.

Crikey, someone else bought the green and blue Brooks I thought it was just me.

Just got some Vivobarefoot Breatho Trail shoes - yellow and black - it's like wearing bumble bees on your feet - proper fashion statement.

I had white trainers which ended up a bit grungy looking.  My Nike Livestrong Lunarhazes have a grey foot, black heel with green swoosh, green front sole and white heel sole with some yellow on the tongue and laces and they still look really good; well as good as they ever did.  Bought them when JJB had a 90% off sale because they were the comfiest the guy brought out - I asked for all the mega reduced stuff in my size to compare!  I generally have to take what I can find in trainers as I only wear a size 3 and many brands start at a 4.
