Size and fit

The Ace Leather Gem by Keds is an eye-catching, low-top sneaker that is made exclusively for women. Its sizes range from 5 to 11 in medium width. Half sizes are also available for a more accurate fit.

With its feminine last, this shoe runs a tad small. Therefore, it is recommended to size up when getting a pair of this kick. Fortunately, the leather material used on the upper of this kick stretches a bit after the break-in period. Also, its laces allow for a bit of customization when it comes to width.

Keds Ace Leather Gem History

Keds is a global company that is more than just a sneaker brand. It is also a symbol of women empowerment and strength. Founded in 1916, this company was the first to release rubber-soled canvas plimsolls, which are now known as sneakers. 

Keds shoes were already being worn by Olympic athletes and champions in the 1920s. However, it was only in the 1960s that they became popular among celebrities and fashion icons. Some of them include Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.

As the brand’s popularity continued to rise, its footwear collection also expanded from all-white sneakers to more colorful ones. Today, Keds shoes are not only limited to lace-up sneakers, slip-ons, cleats, high-tops, and sandals are also available for adventurous shoe enthusiasts.

Despite the new silhouettes that were released by the brand, the classic all-whites are still among the most sought-after shoes by sneakerheads. This is evidenced by the many iterations from the Keds Ace collection. 

Users are given the option to express their eccentric personalities with the Keds Ace Leather Gem. It can easily be customized with the help of the removable gems that can be slipped through the laces.
