Running shoes inspired by tropical fish

I'm a runner. I'm also obviously an aquarist, so these new shoes by New Balance caught my attention. NB released three limited-edition running shoes in their classic/retro 574 silhouette with fashion inspired by fish scales.

To be honest, I'm not sure I see the resemblance to fish in any of these shoes other than perhaps the pair above (called Scorpionfish, though your guess is as good as mine why they called a pure silver shoe Scorpionfish).  But I admit they are rather snazzy designs that I wouldn't mind sporting on my 10Ks.

For $99.99, you can own one of these limited-edition New Balances that come with the tagline: "Mysterious. Hypnotic. Deadly tempting. When you step out in the Limited Edition Tropical Fish 574s, you’ll shine in a sea of boring."


Lionfish (apparently it's a military camo phenotype)


Dragonfish (whatever that is)
