Remember the Keds of your youth? White canvas sneakers with a little blue tab reading "Keds" on the back? They were really popular when I was about 11 (in 1989!) but eventually lost their cool. I didn't think they would regain their popularity, and certainly couldn't imagine I would buy another pair. But I have bought another pair. What's more, I was seriously torn between several pair.
Keds have definitely made a comeback. No longer just plan white, they have really adorable patterns in fun colors, many with a 1950s retro look. They have some Keds with wedges, but not in a stupid "I'm wearing a sneaker that has a heel" way. (Great for me, because I need a shoe to walk around the streets of DC in, and can't do that in my typical heels because the grates rip the heels up. But I can't wear flats becase none of my jeans are hemmed to flat length, meaning I have to roll them up. Oh, and I'm five feet tall and hate flats.) They even have Keds designed by Nanette Lepore.
Don't believe me? Check out their site. And look at all of the shoes I have posted here. (The first pair is the pair I bought, the next two were the ones I was seriously considering, and the last two are too low for me, but just super cute. It's difficult to tell, but the first two pair have a white wedge, a little lower than the green wedge.)
