Angie's forum post about the prevalence of sneakers at retail got me thinking. I have three pairs of non-workout sneakers -- black and white patterned, burgundy color block, and a black-and-grey pair. Plus three old pairs of slip-on sneakers (silver, mint green, and snake print).

Loosely in that category, I have a pair of rose gold Sperry topsiders from about 4 or so years ago that I still like, but I haven't worn them because I worry they seem either too preppy or too far out of trend. I'm conflicted, because I do still like how they look on my feet, but I don't see anyone else wearing them.

Should I keep wearing them in defiance of trend? Or do they seem too preppy for my style? Should I look for a pair of lace-up rose gold sneakers instead? I love rose gold footwear in the summer.
