Who doesn’t love Keds? I’ve been wearing Keds almost religiously since high school. In fact, whenever my dad visited my sisters in the U.S., my only request would be for him to bring back a few new pairs for me. I can still remember all of the different prints I had on my Keds shoes back then and to this day, Keds is one of the brands that I run to when I look for both style and comfort in my OOTDs.

Keds is iconic for first introducing the classic Champion that we all love and this year, the brand is celebrating its 100th anniversary! Yes, that’s 100 big ones! For a century now, Keds has been providing women with much-needed comfort, giving us the freedom to do what we want to do and go where we want to go without any hassle or discomfort and while looking pretty and chic at the same time.
I’ve always loved that Keds has always had different styles to choose from, so I could go from classic white to cute prints in no time. They’ve even collaborated with various key influential fashion designers and labels through the years, including Kate Spade New York, Liberty Art Fabrics, Mark McNairy, and Colette. Even Audrey Hepburn wore Keds!

One of the biggest updates for Keds this year is the Utilitarian chic, which was a trend seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week. The Utilitarian style blends perfectly with delicate shapes and a touch of shimmer, creating a balance of masculine and feminine for a look that’s wearable and tells a great story.
To this day, Keds has become the quintessential sneaker brand that transcends time. Check out this teaser video for next week’s event and spot some of our favorite fashionistas:
