Sid Mashburn Nylites

Consider this the most summery shoe that’s ever gone on sale in December.

The shoe started life as a Tretorn Nylite (we’ve gushed about them before), then got a fluorescent dye job from Atlanta trad guru Sid Mashburn to become the glorious creature you see before you. The technical name is Optical Bright Fluorescent Yellow GN—but that’s a fancy way of saying they’re going to be the brightest shoes you own, ideal for the next time you need to out-blare some madras pants.

Or the next time you’re jogging at night.
