The Keds Ace Leather is a low-top sneaker inspired by a tennis shoe silhouette. Its minimalist upper features a traditional lace-up closure that offers a customizable and secure fit. The overall hold and support of this shoe are good while the leather upper conforms to the natural feet's shape.

A women-exclusive shoe from Keds, the Ace leather is available in sizes ranging from 5 to 11 in Medium width. Also offered are half sizes from 5.5 to 9.5. The fit is true to size for most reviewers.

With its minimal design and construction, the Keds Ace Leather couldn’t get any better in the casual sneakers trend. The soft leather upper (in either white or black) with matching monochromatic laces is clean-looking, adding a pop of color on the heel tab as its only design accent for a feminine touch to its sporty casual flair. Easy-to-wear, easy-to-style - you can never go wrong with the Keds Ace Leather. Wear it anywhere with anything from shorts to denim, dresses, or anything in between.

The Keds Ace Leather boasts a polished and clean look with its white leather upper and monochromatic laces. One feature that stands out and gives the shoe an authentic Keds style, however, is the pop of color on the heel tab for a feminine touch.

Beyond its stylish appearance are features that make the Ace Leather indeed a comfortable pair to strut. It has a cushioned Ortholite insole and a kiss foam padding on upper and collar.

In 2016, American shoe brand Keds introduced the Keds Ace Leather - an all-white leather low-top sneakers fit for lifestyle use. It presents a cushioned Ortholite footbed, padded collar, breathable linings, and lightweight herringbone-patterned rubber outsole. Indeed, a trendy shoe model, it has been made available in several colorway options that are all in white leather but with varying colors on the heel tab accent. Completing the look are gold foil accents on the sidewall Keds branding.

Also made available later on is a black version of the Keds Ace Leather. This shoe features an all-black leather upper that sits atop a clean white midsole with stitching details accent.

  • The Keds Ace Leather utilizes a cupsole with herringbone pattern for traction.
  • Stitching details are visible on the midsole.
  • A Velcro version of this shoe, called the Keds Ace V Leather, is also available.
  • On the sidewall is the Keds text branding in gold foil. Another Keds branding is visible on the heel and insoles.
