The Keds women’s Anchor Leather is available in sizes 5 to 11, which are all in medium widths. This sneaker is molded from a vintage-inspired feminine last, which gives it a perfectly feminine fit. As a low-top with a padded collar, it allows the ankles full range of movement while providing sufficient comfort. Furthermore, a five-eyelet lace-up closure locks in the foot with a secure, custom fit.
Time has been kind to the Anchor’s heritage silhouette as it did not dare affect or touch it, or wasn't able to. Time has given us perspective on how such a silhouette is handed down to generations and fit the generation’s fashion taste or sense.
That said, with its timeless design, the Keds Anchor Leather easily fits in the 1960s or 1990s style as well as today’s style. From Audrey Hepburn’s to Taylor Swift’s fashion era. Mini dresses, tunic dresses, mom jeans, skinny jeans, high-waisted jeans, capri pants, sweaters, blouses, or a cardigan over a sleeveless shirt—feel free and don’t be afraid to mash it all up with the Keds Anchor Leather.
Coming from a heritage design, the Keds Anchor Leather has a classic slim silhouette. Its all clean-white all-leather upper tapers at the toe box area, which takes on the shape of an almond. It is notably sleek, detailed with precision—down to the linings, foxings, and flat shoelaces. All truly subtle, truly feminine, truly Keds.
With the release of the Champion, a laced-up canvas-based, rubber-soled sneaker, in 1916, Keds began their legacy. Since then, Keds churned out many models, which became staples to many women across the world.
