The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka prefers casual shoes over pricey designer footwear.

The actress has no desire to wear uncomfortable, heavy heels, preferring comfort over the latest high-end fashions.

“I don’t wear the Balenciagas – they literally feel like ankle weights, and are a little too big for functioning,” she tells InStyle, admitting she would rather put her funds towards something other than expensive shoes.

“They’re also a very expensive shoe, and I think I’d spend money on something else,” she shares. “But, honestly, I’m all about a sneaker, or a big shoe, or a silly looking shoe. Bring it on!”

Her role on the hit Netflix series allows her to show off dark retro looks and she notes the latest episodes of the series showcase even edgier looks for her magical titular character.

“The fashion definitely gets edgier and darker, and I think that’s something that people are going to dig,” she adds.

One aspect of Sabrina’s style that isn’t changing is her signature black headband.

“It’s not going anywhere,” she jokes. “I think it’s glued down to her head. There are a couple of scenes where it’s not on – but just a couple.”

Off screen, Shipka’s style preferences have earned her praise from celebrity stylist Ashley Streicher, who likes the blonde beauty’s forward-thinking looks.

“She actually has a very fashion-forward mindset,” the style guru tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I take cues from her. She’s one of my only clients that tells me what to do. I feel like she always has a really good direction.”
