Jump below for a pic from the spread in the September 2014 Elle featuring Kristen Stewart. She's wearing Chanel sneakers and some awesomely weird and wonderful future-jock fashion. I always love this sort of fashion meets activewear thing alot and while Kristen's sneakers are decidedly NOT old school, their initial vibe is very Chucks-ish.

If shoe shopping at Chanel isn't in the cards for your fall casual-wear wardrobe but you want to embrace the look of modern fashion mixed with cool old kicks, then this list is for you.

It's got some of the best of the 70s and 80s sneakers that are still being made today. Let us know in the comments if we've missed any of your favorites...
