So my current sneaker rotation consists of:
1. Spring Court b2 White
2. Spring Court b4 White
3. Common Projects Gray (close to white) desert boot
4. Common Project Achilles Patent White
5. Adidas Stan Smith White

As you can see they are all white! Obviousally I think this is the best color for sneakers and looks the best but I would like a change. Also from my list it is obvious that I favor mid-high tops. Up until this year I hated mid-highs but tried my first pair (the CP's) and fell in love, pretty much wont buy anything but mid-highs now.

I am looking for something other than white though, no crazy candy colored shit. I am guessing that leaves me with brown leather, silver, black (which I dont really like the look of in sneakers) ...? any suggestions or preferences?

I was thinking something like:

any rec's for the black or reds (red might be too bright for my style/taste). As far as black goes, I have never really thought of sneakers in black but I would try some out if I could find a pair that didnt look too blah.

sooo which non-white mid/highs would u consider non-yuck, I am trying to get some ideas, I dont particularly like the look of those better than a number of other mid/highs in whie but as I said above I already have a number of white sneakers and would like something to change it up a bit.

Red is too bright but you picked out a silver shoe?

I would say silver is not bright at all but rather dull, when I think bright I think red, yellow, some shades of green and blue, on the other end of the spectrum I think you have white, gray, silver, beige, etc.

I actually like those silver CPs, but they look hard to pull off.

I usually clean mine once or twice a week with white leather sneaker cleaner, stuff works great, there are also almost polish like products you can buy that will cover up a scruf or mark if a cleaner wont take it out, nvr used any before but have seen them. A friend of mine uses "the magic eraser" by mr. clean, says it works rgeat as well.
