My Sneaker Collection Looks Dated So I’m Considering These 28 Pairs

My sneaker buying tends to come in waves. Sometimes I feel like I’m fully stocked and others find me feeling completely uninspired and like I’ve worn each pair a thousand times. Currently, I’m stuck in the latter. I do most of my sneaker wearing in the fall (and winter) as opposed to summer when I really need my feet to breathe, so I’m eagerly shopping for some fresh styles.

At the moment, my sneaker collection consists of a couple of pairs of old worn-out athletic sneakers, far too many plain white lace-up sneakers, and some very colorful styles that aren’t really my vibe anymore. I feel pretty meh about all but a few pairs, so I spent some time perusing the latest styles and selected 28 that I love (and you just might too). All of your favorite brands are present and accounted for so rest assured  Scroll to shop the fruits of my labor if your sneaker collection is feeling a little dated as well (or if you simply love sneakers).

You might want to wear your cutest socks with these.

Fun fact: I just ordered these.

I’m intrigued.

So authentically retro.

APL always gives the people what they want.

These sell out every time they hit the shelves.

This graphic pair feels fresh and modern.


Retro sneakers > all other sneakers.

A fresh change-up from the black-and-white pair.

I couldn’t pick them in just one color.

This Golden Goose pair looks so elevated.

I love these so much that I had to include them in a (slightly) different color.

The kelly green trend isn’t going anywhere.

Lilac is the next big It color. Be prepared.

I can guarantee that this fall-friendly pair won’t be in stock for long.

It’s the cute plant embroidery for me.

I love a pop of color.

Country club vibes.

These will make you look like you know what you’re doing.

These would look great with a cozy sweater.

Introducing the Vans you won’t see on everyone else’s feet.

I like that these kind of look like hiking shoes.

For wearing with all of your cute tennis outfits.

Proof that gum soles are underrated.

And suddenly I need a pair of patchwork sneakers.

If I were to splurge on Gucci sneakers, this is the pair I’d go for.

Can you blame me for being drawn to this color combo?
