Kristen Stewart is one of Hollywood’s hottest young stars and she has turned up on a slew of red carpets lately. While she always looks gorgeous, there seems to be a common recurrence each time, her sneaker swap! We know Kristen is more of a tomboy at heart and much rather strut around in her Converse or Keds, but she isn’t simply slipping off her sky-high pumps for comfort! It turns out, there’s another reason she does it — and it’s so sweet.

Kristen recently gave an interview with the WestAustralian/YahooAu and explained why she ditched her fabulous Christian Louboutin heels for her beat-up sneakers at the Australian premiere of Snow White and The Huntsman. “I just don’t like teetering over all those young girls,” she said. “I want to be able to run around and talk to them. I acknowledge the heels do look better, but that’s OK.”

Watch her sneaker swap for yourself BELOW! Do you think it’s awesome that Kristen is putting her fans before her style? Or do you think that they would understand and she should just stick it out with the heels?
