Frequently Asked Questions About Reflective Shoes

How do reflective shoes work? 

Shoes can shine brightly using reflective materials that bounce back light. Shoes are made reflective by using the process of retroflection to help the eye perceive objects in low-light conditions once illuminated by a light source. Retroflection occurs when light is reflected back to its original source to produce a bright, silvery light. These materials work best as the light source gets closer so they are highly effective in providing increased visibility and safety for runners. 

How to clean reflective shoes? 

The best way to clean shoes with reflective materials is to use a damp towel with cold water and mild soap to gently wash off dirt, scuffs and other blemishes.  It’s important to not pre-soak the shoes and you should avoid using high-alkaline products, solvenated detergents, micro emulsions or additional bleaches. Reflective materials should not be exposed to temperatures over 158 degrees Fahrenheit at any point during the drying process, should ideally be line-dried and are not recommended for dry cleaning.   

Does reflective material wear off?  

Reflective material can wear off both in terms of its effectiveness to reflect light and due to exposure to rough materials, terrain, weather conditions and other environmental impacts. It’s important to properly follow the care and cleaning instructions and to try to avoid as much unneeded wear & tear that comes with regular use as possible.
