Jenny Holzer For Keds--These Are Not Your Mom's Sneakers
June 24, 2010
Introducing the newest collaboration to hit the sneaker market: artist Jenny Holzer and Keds. Jenny Holzer is world-famous for including text in her art, and now she’s printing her sayings on shoes. Her famous quote, “Protect Me From What I Want”, will now adorn both low-top and hi-top original Keds sneakers (below). There’s something about cool sneakers that really put a pep in your step. But when sneakers actually say something and donate money to the Whitney Museum of American Art at the same time, you’ll start skipping.
Starting July 8th, they’ll be available exclusively to Keds.com and Bloomingdales.com for $70-$75. And you’ll feel great about the price because the proceeds go straight to the Whitney Museum of American Art.
