The Keds Anchor Nubuck is a low-top sneaker from the Keds Anchor collection. Its profile permits wearers mobility or flexible foot movement, while its padded collar and Dream Foam footbed ensure comfortable in-shoe fit and feel. Designed with a lace-to-toe upper, it has a 5-eyelet lace closure system that offers an adjustable or customizable fit.

This women’s sneaker from American footwear brand Keds is available from size US 5 to 11 with half sizes in between, in B Medium or Standard width. The fit is true to size with a tapered toe fit.

This Nubuck edition of the vintage-inspired Keds Anchor silhouette stayed true to the original model's heritage but received an upgraded upscale appeal, thanks to the rich and buttery nubuck uppers in place of classic canvas. Your trusty pair of everyday shoes shouldn't be limited to a comfy canvas after all, right? Further elevating the glam look of this Keds kicks are subtle colorways of Light Peach and Sage that screams casual and elegance rolled into one. Wear them with shorts, skirts, or summer or midi dresses to level up your everyday style game.

If there's one thing that stands out in this particular Keds Anchor version, it surely is the entirety of its upper which gives the women-only silhouette a fresh and glam upgrade. This version of the Keds Anchor sneakers flaunts a luxe-looking nubuck upper that replaced the signature comfy canvas of the original model. It retains the clean-looking and minimal design of the Anchor, but the use of nubuck adds an instant boost to the shoe’s overall style.

Aside from the iconic Keds Champion sneakers, American footwear brand has other frontrunners that offer its followers the ideal combination of comfort and style in sneakers. The Keds Anchor is one of these.

Marketed as "a new classic," the Keds Anchor shoe is a modern reinvention of classic Keds silhouettes from the brand’s archive. It boasts a design that mixes the best of old and new into one feminine, vintage-inspired sneaker suited for everyday comfort.

Joining the lineup of other Keds Anchor variations in the Anchor collection is the Keds Anchor Nubuck. Like other iterations such as the Keds Anchor Chambray, Keds Anchor Brushed Canvas, Keds Anchor Cotton Sateen, and more, the Nubuck version shadows the original form of the core model and only differs in the upper material. Instead of the signature canvas material used on the original Keds Anchor (otherwise referred to as the Keds Anchor Canvas), the Keds Anchor Nubuck utilized luxe nubuck upper for a fresh look and elevated style.

  • The Keds Anchor Nubuck features cushioned Ortholite insoles, vintage-inspired last and foxing, and rubber outsole.
  • The shoe comes with two lace options – tonal laces and classic white.
