Keds has been in the sneaker industry way before Nike, Adidas, or Puma are established. It was officially founded in 1916 when the largest rubber manufacturer in the world, the US Rubber Company, decided to consolidate all the footwear companies under its umbrella and collectively call it as Keds.
That same year, Keds produces the first-ever "sneaker" - footwear with a canvas upper and rubber sole. This shoe is known today as the Original – the Keds Champion sneakers. Since then, the Champion has been the most successful and recognized sneaker model from the brand. It plays a vital role in the history of fashion and women's sneakers.
Joining the intensive lineup of modernized Keds Champion sneakers is the Keds Champion Floral. The new addition to the ever-growing Keds Champion collection shadows the profile of the original Champion low-tops but gets an upgraded upper design. While the original shoe features solid-colored canvas uppers, this version did away with that for a fresh look. It uses twill material printed with floral details. The lace closure system, thinly-padded collar and tongue, and rubber outsole remain.
