If the Black & Hot Pink Athletic Shoe Fits

Last week I went shopping for shoes for my aerobics class. There were plenty of shoes to choose from, but the color selection freaked me out. I’m talking neon colors of pink and chartreuse and orange on a black or grey canvas mesh. What happened to standard white sneakers with blue or silver accents?

I suppose I’m incorrectly assuming that the resurgence of old-school aerobic dance classes means that white high-top aerobic shoes are back, too. I did find out that Reebok still makes the ubiquitous-in-the-80s Freestyle high-top aerobic shoes. And you can get them in white. But if you go to their website, you will find crazy color combinations that look like the shoes were dipped in rainbow sherbet gone horribly wrong.

Since I had limited funds, I narrowed it down to two choices, seen below.


Want to guess which one I picked?
