My Sneaker Collection Looks Dated, so I'm Considering These 28 Pairs

·3 min read

My sneaker buying tends to come in waves. Sometimes, I feel like I'm fully stocked, and other times 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.
