Ellesse Marathon neon collection

As you may have gathered, I'm a fan of anything with ‘marathon’ in the title, and most things ‘neon’ too – so I was pleased to see that Ellesse has rereleased its Marathon’84 trainer style in a rainbow of flouro colurways. (The Marathon '84 style is named as such, as the Ellesse team wore them during the 1984 New York marathon).

Though it may not have the technology of a contemporary running shoe, it certainly holds its own in the aesthetic stakes. In fact it’s quite nice to see a retro footwear style, when all others seem to be looking increasingly futuristic.
