How many pairs of trainers do you own?

I typed out a long waffle and MN ate it
Probably just as well
Short version - how many pairs of trainers do you own? Do you wear them with anything that's a bit smarter, eg relaxed jacket?
If you wear animal print - I have one jacket and one top - do you wear trainers and if so, how do you make them work? I always wear black boots.
In fact, how do you put together trainers with any print, just pick up an accent colour? When I try to shop for trainers, I could just buy them all!
I used to be very much one for black boots but it does seem to be trainers everywhere now, work or going out. I'm about to start walking a lot more of my commuting route too so trainers all day would be easier. It seems like you'd need a pair for every outfit though - wishful thinking!

I'd say solid white to go with an animal print? I have various trainers but most are specially for running, I have 3 pairs I'd wear with a normal outfit and they're all a solid colour; or as near as. White, black and bright green.
I'm a sucker for converse though...

I wear them with most outfits smart or casual but in the summer prefer sandals.
I would always dress down leopard print.
I do think you need options though, different colours, fabrics, thick soles, thin soles, different ankle heights. I've got Superga, Golden Goose, NB, adidas, converse but the majority are nike

1x trail shoes (Salomon)
2x current running trainers (Asics and Brooks)
1x older trainers I sometimes wear for walking (Nike)
I've also got 2 pairs of Converse and another pair on the way, but I don't think of those as trainers - I certainly wouldn't want to run in them, they've got no support at all!

Nike Air Max 97’s (black and white)
Nike flex (animal print)
Converse black leather
Converse wedge black
Converse rose gold leather
Currently looking at animal print AF1’s.
I tend to wear animal print with black converse in winter and white converse in spring/summer.

I have 12 pairs of converse, mixture of low and high tops. 2 pairs of Vejas - probably most worn after white converse - in cream/gold and sable, some animal print adidas gazelles and then some sports ones, asics I think they are. I wear Vejas with jeans and relaxed blazers a lot for work. White converse or sable Vejas are great with leopard print!

I have clean indoor gym trainers, cushioned outside road running trainers, grippy cross country trainers for muddy runs, water/wind resistant cycling trainers. I sometimes wear these trainers with casual outfits but rarely so. Most are neutral in colour
