The ones you are wearing are starting to look old and worn out. Maybe you have neglected or not prioritized the periodic shoe care that would have prevented them from being in this state. Could be you bought them a very long time ago. Then the model was fashionable and very well-fitting. Today they look dull and the perfect fit is gone since long time.
You have been looking at the hot sneakers that "all" the others are wearing. Even knowing that they will make your knees hurt after a long walk it is very hard to not consider them. Most of your friends got them already and you have to admit they look sporty and fresh (at least when they are new). Then there is the fact that you got a lot of unpleasant comments about your shoes. Especially from the people that never even tried something else than sneakers.
Finally you get back to your own sane conclusion. If you have neglected the care too long it might be best to buy a new fresh pair of shoes, well-fitted with great support for your feet. In better cases it will be good enough to let a shoemaker recondition them. You will be suprised how good they look afterwards.
If you see an allegory in the text above you might be right.
