These Are Not The Keds Of Your Childhood: They Just Got A Grown-Up Makeover
July 11, 2011
Keds Shabby Chic Cutie cut out sneakers, $50 at Zappos, and in so many colors.
In the late ’80s and early ’90s, when I was in elementary school, Keds were my jam. The canvas sneakers were a mainstay at the time–but then they went drastically out of style, and for years were a soccer mom staple (along with Mom jeans). Well, kids, they’re back, with a 2011 twist: they’ve got cut-outs! Think of them as the sneaker version of your favorite oxfords. Grab yourself a pair to kick around in all summer. Bonus: extra ventilation, something we can all use more of at this time of year. They’re just $50 at Zappos–plus, free shipping!
