“Newton-esque” a Fashion Buzzword?

From a journalist who was recently in Beaverton to preview the new Spring ’09 Nike running shoes:

“And the neon colors in this line are very Newton-esque.”

Is that a new word?

Regardless, I guess imitation is the ultimate form of flattery. Jennifer Abshire is the keen eye behind Newton’s bright neon colors and bold looks. A quick glance through any recent issue of Vogue or InStyle (where Newton was featured in January and May) and it’s clear Jennifer was right in predicting neon is back!

We can’t wait to see Nike’s neon knock-off new shoes.
