    I did. And, while I am not renowned as a fashion maven, I thought they clashed horribly with the red uniforms.
    Actually, I would call them fluorescent greenish bile yellow..
    I assume the neon shoes were Nikes way of putting a stamp on the Olympics.

          If you look at old photos/films where they were starting out of holes or makeshift blocks, I believe the low-butt crouch was predominant.
          When I got to college, some actual coaching and real starting blocks, we were taught the high-butt, crowding the line, toes touching the track start, the theory being, presumably, that when you pushed off you were in a standing position and all you had to do was start running.
          I dunno, worked for us..
