Mostly Wordless Wednesday

I learned about this yesterday from fellow FitFluential ambassador Kristy. Really Boston and Adidas? Bright orange/coral/red, whatever the heck that color is?

Sad thing is, I’m sure I’ll buy it. You can call me a hypocrite. I won’t mind.

 Mostly Wordless Wednesday

Anyone else find this color, well, heinous?

  1. It’s not THAT bad!!! I would have preferred Nike…and maybe pink, blue, or even yellow!! I would buy it anyway though. I think it’s absolutely necessary!

  3. The color is worse in person! Bring back the blue and yellow!!!

  4. Fugly

  5. I am not a fan (but yeah… I will buy it anyway). You kind of have to right?? I was hoping for green! Or the iconic blue and yellow. Maybe they will still have those???

  6. i think the point of a boston jacket is to be as obnoxious as possible ;) 2009′s was a super bright turquoise. hey, you need to get recognition!

  10. It’s nice but I like the colors which seem to be associated with Boston: blue and yellow well…at least those are the colors I assoc. with Boston.

  11. I like it! I have the 2009 jacket which is heinous. But like you said, you just have to buy it!

  12. Yes and no. If you can find the right shoes to match it would look good, but definitely not my favorite color. :)
    Jessica recently posted..My WeekendMy Profile

  13. agreed! but if I were running, i would get it too.
    Why don’t they just stick with yellow/blue?? the colors of the Boston Marathon??

  14. I agree with the others…at least you’ll be visible and easy to spot in a crowd. ;)

  15. I don’t think that the colour is that bad. I kind of even like it. Sure, there are better colours, but I think if I would run Boston, I would just buy it cause its the Boston jacket ;)

  16. I think it’s gorgeous–of course it could be neon purple or 70s orange and I’d still think it was gorgeous. :^)

    Can’t wait to get one in 2013!!!!!

  21. I actually like it better than the ugly blue/yellow BUT it doest say BOSTON like the blue/yellow so bummer

  22. Not that I’m a fan of the blue and yellow, but really??!! It’s the insignia that counts! :)

  23. That’s so sad. The blue and yellow was signature Boston. Why change it now after all these years???

  25. Spike is so freaking jealous that this is the color for this year’s race. He is the lover of all things obnoxiously colored!

  26. They certainly have had some horrible color combos in the past for their jackets! Seriously they have been worse than this one!!! I lucked out my year and it was navy and white!! You have to buy it….it’s a badge of honor!

  28. I think I am the only one here in complete love with that jacket. If only I could get a million minutes faster and qualify for Boston, I would wear it all the time. Seriously, I love orange and Adidas. Together = heaven. But I love Adidas from my soccer years, so I can see how runners aren’t that into it.

  30. The color is always skewed online. Might not look near that in person. Plus…. it’s Boston. Ya gotta buy it.

  31. Love the color…..the brighter the better I say.

  33. Tangerine is my guess.

    I don’t actually mind it but I liked last year’s green one better.

  34. Um, yeah, that’s pretty ugly!!! I LOVED what Meg does…she has one Boston jacket and each year she runs it, she gets that year embroidered on her jacket. I LOVED the long list she had, way cooler than multiple jackets in the closet!

  35. I have never ran Boston before, but I thought the colors were yellow and blue? But I do like the color here from what I see online.

  36. You are going to call me nuts…but I like that way better than the blue and lime green/yellow ones. I thought those were kind of ugly (but would have bought one if I were running)

  40. eh I am not a fan of the color either. not really red but not really orange.

  41. Teresa Eskew says:

    I like it. (Impish grin) I’m a sucker for anything in the orange spectrum.

  42. I kinda like it! And let’s be honest – if I ran Boston I would proudly wear it no matter the colors!

  44. oh, i don’t think it’s that bad!! what i hated about last years is that they are screen printed now, not embroidered. they look so cheap.

  48. When you cross the finish line you’ll see that color in a whole new light.

  49. I don’t remember who’s blog I was reading but they were saying that this years running colour was “tangerine orange” so maybe that’s why. lol I didn’t even know there were running colours of the year. and I think blue is always a safe choice.

  50. The jacket has grown on me….when I first looked I didn’t like it but now it’s not so bad.

  51. I think you have to buy it. It will be another wonderful memory of your running adventure.

  52. I kinda like it. But I have been rocking the bright colors lately. I was asked the other day if I was trying to be a pack of skittles and another person asked if the 80′s were back. Gotta love preschool moms!

  53. bummer! I don’t like it at all. I think they know that it doesn’t matter what color it is…people have to buy it. :)

  54. I usually like red and orange but this indeed is a weird color. I liked the blue/yellow much better!
