Check out these bright options designed to keep you safe in low-light.

Studies have shown that motorists can see pedestrians or runners on the side of a road best if they’re wearing reflective or illuminated features on parts of the body that are in motion. This fall, several brands have released high-visibility shoes — some of which actually glow in the dark! Each of these road shoes has been designed for running in the dark, either late at night or in the low-light conditions at dusk or before sunrise. With daylight savings time ending on Nov. 3 and fewer daylight hours prevailing for several months, now is a good time to consider a new pair of high-visibility shoes.
