Hem or cuff?

I wanna wear these new jeans I got lower than I usually do (prolly not advised since they are already low rise -- 9" rise, if that -- and looks like I took a dump, not anti fittin', just ain't fittin'. They sit ok on my Puma RS-100's (with a 1/4 inch 'flip up' at the heels), but then I gotta roll 'em up twice to sit right on my chucks and Tigers.

Should I just hem them? Continue cuffing them when I wear flat shoes/sneakers? Only wear them with bulkier more athletic kicks? Whut??


PS: How much cuffing is too much cuffing?

I wear a 31-32" inseam and I usually hem jeans that are 33" or longer, otherwise it just gets caught up in most of my flatter shoes or sandals. Most of the time it's not really noticable and you can have them use the original hem if you'd like.
