Ok, ladies -- and Angie, I would love your input if you have a moment! -- I would like your feedback as I review, edit, and augment my sneaker collection. Ignore styling in photos -- I just put the shoes on with the grungies I wore today to work at the rental house.

First off -- the new contenders for a place in my closet.

Pics 1-4. Paul Green rose gold sneaks. Pricey but PG quality is very good. Neutral and would go with everything, but I do have rose gold Sperrys (in pic 16) which could arguably serve the same purpose. .

Pics 5-8. All Black pointed toe slip-on sneaks. I love the print and the pointy toe but they do make my feet look a little bigger (which doesn't bother me, my feet are quite average in size so I'm not sensitive to this). Interesting that they read more neutral from a distance and make more of a statement as you get closer.

Pics 9-12. Nike Roshe sneaks in black and white cherry blossom print. I fell in love with these online and had to try them. I like that the b&w print is interesting without being too high contrast. Possible replacement for turquoise Nikes from a couple of years ago (pic 18), which I like but I goofed when I bought them -- I should have sized up a little because they are ever so slightly snug.

Pics 13-14. Pug break!

Pics 15-18. What I already own.

15. Slip on sneaks from last year -- DV in silver and mint, and Via Spiga in snake print. All got plenty of wear last year, but I'm craving a little more variety in sneaker style. I'll keep these.

16. Two pairs of old Cons that are being relegated to ranch wear. And the rose gold Sperrys which I want to keep -- not sneakers, I know, but I wear them the same way I'd wear sneakers.The Sperrys are a few years old but still in good shape, and I like them even if they're not trending right now. I know, they're a little preppier than one might expect of me, but the color makes them work.

17. Sneakers but not for summer. I think I might let go of the green Ash wedge sneaks since they are not feeling so current anymore. Not sure. I do wear the black Ash Genials but only with jeans or my moto pants -- I don't like how they look on me with crops. I love the studded Frye high tops, but I keep wishing they were black instead of brown. I'd like to keep but wonder about dyeing.

18 Nikes that are a little too snug that I should probably sell.

So, what do you think of the new sneaker options? They all seem pretty comfortable out of the box, but I will evaluate further.

And if you made it through all that, what do you think about my keep/toss ponderings on my current collection?
