Sometimes you've got to give up a few things to be stylsih, it's time to get a little more specific and talk about the item that can make or break a look—shoes. We all have those shoes we hold onto for a bit too long, whether it's for sentimental reasons or simply because we loved them once (probably a little too much, based on their worn-out appearance).

Shoes can go in and out of the trend zone in the blink of an eye, and wearing an "out" pair can instantly make your entire look feel dated. Accordingly, we came to the conclusion that there are nine styles in particular that no longer have a place in your wardrobe in 2017—and that we don't think will be back in anytime soon. On the bright side, we have nine alternate styles that either lean more classic or are current trends that have proven their staying power. Ready to improve your style via your shoe collection?

Find out which shoes to toss and which to keep (or add to your closet) below.
