I wear sneakers with jeans most of the time during the winter.  Just normal Pumas.

I’m not a huge fan of the sneakers and jeans look. I try to wear nice sandals or cute ballet flats, but I guess it depends on the look I’m going for.  I do have a plain white pair of sneakers that I have worn with more relaxed jeans (think boyfriend jeans) when I just threw on a tshirt to go grocery shopping. I could never wear my running sneakers with jeans though.

I have a pair of nikes that I’ve completely worn down with the use of my jeans. i think you should try to find more classic sneakers (with flat bottoms, not especially designed for sports or running) because those tend to look the best with jeans IMO.

@Boston Bee:

Same; it’s like a physical aversion for me. I’ve never done it and never can.

Unless I’m going somewhere nice, I almost always wear sneakers with my jeans. I’m a bigger fan of dark grey sneakers, or any darker sneaker w/ jeans. I’m not a fan of light or white sneakers with them. I have to say that it’s almost always a running shoe too.

I wear Converse with my jeans, I only wear running shoes to the gym.

I hardly ever wear sneakers unless I’m exercising or at the animal shelter– I am a big fan of flipflops or flats with jeans!

I had to edit this after reading the PP about converse! I do have a pair of high tops and will occasionally wear sneakers– gold Air Force One’s (sale section on the children’s rack!) or some high top Adidas neon colored shoes, though I wear these the way I might wear some fierce boots, they’re definitely a focal point when I wear them!

If I wear sneakers with my jeans I wear more “fashion” sneakers than actual shoes I’d run in.

Something like these usually:

I think there is a difference between sneakers & runners.  I would never wear runners with jeans, but often I wear cute sneakers with jeans. 

I classify runners as shoes that I would wear to go to the gym or do exercise in.

That being said I wear my boyfriend jeans, or cropped jeans with these Roxy sneakers that I absolutely LOVE.  Roxy has a ton of cute sneakers that look great with jeans.

I hate hate hate hate hate sneakers with jeans. I don’t even know why because I’m not at all a fashionable person and I’ve been known to go to the grocery store in yoga pants (like… at least twice a month). But for some reason I just canNOT wear sneakers unless they are actually required for what I’m planning to do (like… sometimes I’ll wear cute pumas on vacation when I know I’m going to be doing a ton of walking). From like March-October I wear flip flips (I try to get cute ones though! Right now I’m rocking my wedding flip flops which are platform and sparkly). In the winter I usually wear ballet flats or riding boots (when there is snow).

I never wear sneakers.  All winter/ spring in WI I wear boots (you have to or you’d be all wet).  I wear black knee-high boots.  If someone twisted my arm and I had to, I would probably wear my converse.

ETA: I would only wear dark ones (brown or black converse with jeans) personally.
