Yes, Your Shoes are Fine
The first rule to having sneakers in your closet is to have multiple pairs. You don't need 100 pairs of shoes, but you need more than 3 pairs. By design sneakers are more memorable than dress shoes, so you need to switch them up. Even if you fall in love with a shoe, try not to wear it two days in a row. Each shoe will last longer with a good rotation.
If you fall in love with one particular style, get multiple colors and give people something new to see and talk about. Don't wear that grey Allbirds shoe (US$95 at Allbirds) everyday for a two months. The interns will think you're cool the first two days and then you're just the 'old' that wears sneakers. Get every color. you deserve it.
Five or six pairs of quality sneakers will keep your rotation fresh and give you plenty of stories to relate to those younger employees and family members. Our recommendations will be timeless as opposed to fashion-forward. You want to look relevant, not obsessed.
Unless, of course, you are obsessed.
