Not everyone loves the flatness of a flip-flop or a haute summer barely there sandal. What's missing is the coverage and the support. You can get both here from Sam Edelman and KSwiss, who offer an affordable alternative to higher priced kicks like Katie Holmes' $595 Jimmy Choo pair.

Super cute summer sneaks (like the Sam Edelman 'Alexander' Studded Sneaker pictured at left) are a little rebellious and sweet at the same time.

Celebs like Holmes and Jessica Alba wear them so well. Sneakers work with everything from jeans to dresses to shorts. They're the perfect footwear to run around town in and keep on all day long. I love the colors and studs and the cool factor.
