Keds Anchor Canvas History

US Rubber company founded the Keds brand in 1916. At first, they wanted to name the brand as “Peds,” but it was already taken, so they registered the name “Keds” instead, meaning moccasins in the native American word. The brand manufactured its first shoe, the Keds Champion, which had rubber outsoles that delivered reliable traction.

Since then, the Champion appeared in a variety of Champion designs, materials, and colorways, while keeping the silhouette timeless and classic. It became an epitome of casual and comfortable shoes. In the 1950s, Keds became known because of its minimalist look that mixes well with a variety of outfits. It continues to remain as one of the leading shoes for women today.

In 2018, the brand released the low-top Keds Anchor Canvas which has a lightweight design and a slim style, giving a modern look with a vintage feel. Like most of the Keds footwear, it utilizes Ortholite technology that keeps the feet healthy and fresh, ensuring comfort all day. It has a versatile style that is easy to pair with different kinds of dress up and down outfits.
