Unbeknownst to some, Keds was the first shoe company to release the canvas-topped, rubber-soled shoes which are now known as sneakers. This 100 plus-year-old brand was launched in 1916 with the goal of creating simple yet chic shoes for women.
During the 1920s, Keds sneakers were being used in the Olympics by soccer and tennis players as well as college athletes. In 1936, the brand also expanded to creating washable heeled shoes under the brand Kedettes. It also launched Pro-Keds, a collection of men’s sneakers which later became famous among basketball players, musicians, and the hip-hop community.
All throughout the 50s and 60s, Keds sneakers were popular among celebrities and fashion icons, including Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Yoko Ono was also seen wearing a pair of white Keds shoes during her wedding with John Lennon in 1969.
It was in the late 90s and early 00s that Keds branched out to creating more fashion-forward sneakers with colorful designs. The company also incorporated a variety of patterns into their solid-colored shoes. This paved the way for several Keds slip-ons, flatforms, cleats, sandals, and high-tops to be released.
The Keds Ace lineup was launched in 2016. It is a tennis-inspired sneaker in a low-top silhouette. Since then, several iterations also followed, including the Keds Ace Bow Leather.
