Is it ok to wear chucks to a job interview?

I'm graduating college soon and will be attending many interviews and career fairs. I want to know if it's ok to wear lowtop chucks with dress pants and a nice top or a pants suit. 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.

No, its not. If I were you I would wear my chucks to it, but definitely change my shoes for the actual interview. Leave your chucks in the car! The first thing a lot of people look at is your shoes and you're (unfortunately) highly judged on your appearance. It really won't hurt you to be uncomfortable for your... More

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.
