Is it ok to wear chucks to a job interview?

I hate wearing heels and other kinds of dressy shoes are ugly. I know I have seen other people doing it but do you think it will make the wrong impression? I am 24 and looking for a media job, preferably for an online publication.

I wouldn't. Your objective is to impress these people, not to wear the shoes you want. Sorry, but maybe wear them FROM the interviews to make you feel good.
