9 Chic Sneakers That Won’t Cramp Your Style -- or Your Feet (PHOTOS)

chuck taylor converse shoesSneakers catch a ton of flack come summertime, with all the flats, sandals, wedges, and flip-flops marching around. The problem is traditional sneaks just ain't cute!

Let's be real here, ladies, what's more important when it comes to your feet -- fun and flirty flats or an uncomfortable, bulky pair o' shoes? Yup ... that's what I thought.

But it seems the Sneaker Gods have heard our collective prayers, and much like the world embraced the arrival of jorts (uh, did it?), the universe will proudly welcome fashionable footwear, perfect for chasing tots around at an amusement park all day. I know, I know, it's a bit of a shock on all fronts, but it's true. Big timers in the shoe industry are fighting back when it comes to hideous high-tops & are instead whippin' up sneaks with some serious style. Holla!

That said, I think I'm ready to give lace-up sneakers another try and after checking out nine of the most comfortable, cute and affordable shoes, you'll want to try 'em on too.

What do you wear on your feet when you're running around all day?

I only wear Sauconys, most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Can get great sales so prices range anywhere from 30 to 60 bucks normally. They last forever

7 out of 10 of these are hideous and scream "I'm an American tourist please steal my wallet".

I only like the Keds from this list. I don't wear athletic shoes with my regular clothes.
