A runner jogs past you and immediately catches your eye, running shoes blazing past you in neon, kaleidoscopic blur. Aesthetics aside, have you ever wondered why sports shoes and apparel sometimes boast reflective materials and luminous colours? Knowing so could actually save your life.
Dawn and evening are the most popular periods for exercise and understandably so, as the Sun is less harsh and the air fresher. However, these also happen to be periods of dimmer light conditions, inhibiting the vision of motorists and other pedestrians. You may be thinking that this is absolutely harmless, but you cannot be more gravely mistaken. Reports have testified that three-fifths of runner-vehicle collisions occur from 6-9AM and a-fifth from 6-9PM, totalling a staggering four-fifths. The findings are alarming. A senior behavioural scientist at the Washington DC Insurance Institute for Highway Safety emphasises, amongst other precautions, that brightly coloured apparel is of pivotal importance. This is such that incoming traffic and pedestrians can easily notice and avoid you under poorer light conditions. Equipped with reflective 3M taping and presented in an appealing array of striking colours, your mind will certainly be at peace the next time you go for a jog in our AFIYA and JENGO sport shoes.
They offer unsurpassable comfort too. Embrace the wind beneath your soles as the AFIYA and JENGO, precisely engineered with breathable materials, promote ventilation and prevent the build-up of heat at your feet.
Elevate your exercise regime and propel it into the next level with our signature and internationally patented MBT curved soles.
