The low-top Keds Champion Micro Dot features the classic silhouette updated with micro-dot prints all over the upper. It has vintage tonal flat laces and the round-toe profile for its sporty heritage look.    This fuss-free sneaker is usually styled with jeans, capris, or cutoff shorts with relaxed tees.

The US Rubber Company was founded in 1892 and first engineered footwear with a rubber sole for various companies. The demand was so high that the company decided to offer footwear exclusively under their brand and called it Keds.

The Keds was founded in 1916 and started to offer canvas plimsoll as their rubber-soled product. This plimsoll is now known as the Keds Champion Original and was made of straightforward canvas upper that rested atop a vulcanized rubber outsole.

The Keds Champion Original was intended for sports purposes, but because of its classic profile, it was adopted as casual footwear that could be matched to any everyday getup. The trend for sneakers grew increasingly in the 50s because of its minimalist look and Oxford style lacing system.

The popularity of the Keds Champion Original flourished and reached the world stage in the 90s and grew steadily until the 2000s. Various iterations and collaborations were molded using the Champion as their base model. The Keds Champion Micro Dot is one of the many variations of the classic profile and displayed the eye-catching microdots all around the canvas upper with brass-tone eyelets and logo on the tongue, heel, and lateral side of the collar.

  • The Keds Champion Micro Dot has textured wraparound midsole for the added style and support.

  • This product weighs approximately 230 grams.
  • The lightly cushioned footbed provides reliable comfort for the all-day use.
