My first pair of Keds were given to me as a present from my mum, she brought them back from her Queensland holiday as a ‘sorry you had to go to school and didn’t get to go to the theme parks’ pressent. They were so comfortable and the I still have them in my wardrobe (it was about 5 years ago). Now Keds is helping to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Kate Spade New York with a capsule made in preppy-pep heaven. Gingham, polka dots, chevron, and nautical stripes adorn Keds’s classic canvas sneaker silhouettes and come in snappy hues such as orange, blue, and bubblegum pink.
“There is a fun whimsical aspect to [Kate Spade] and it relates to Keds,” explained Stephanie Brocoum, Keds VP of marketing. “[The shoes] are right in that sweet spot of everything feminine, fashionable, versatile.” Ranging from $75 to $85, the collection will hit keds.com
