Keds Champion Spring Style

As a brand that has catered to women for more than 100 years, it is evident that the brand has captured the formula for their delicate taste. Still donned in almost the same silhouette as its original model, the Keds Champion Spring gets a slight tweak, making it more appropriate for spring. With five colorways to choose from, natural, dark teal, dark blue, dark taupe, and eggshell blue, users can still benefit from its versatile style and can pair these with almost any outfit imaginable.

Keds Champion Spring History

In 1892, U.S. Rubber was established pursuing the goal of harnessing the revolutionary vulcanizing process and producing a wide range of products like gloves and tires. Including rubber-soled sneakers on their roster of products, the company decided that to serve the best interest, the shoe manufacturing will be served under one name, as opposed to several like how it used to.

Originally naming the brand "Peds," a Latin term for foot, Keds became the next-to-best option after knowing that the former has already been taken. Keds produced its first shoe composed of rubber outsoles and epitomized the ultimate definition of sneakers. Soon after, its first model was rebranded after seeing its popularity among female tennis stars. Keds Champion, being the shoe of champions, became the apt name for the sneakers. Since then, the model has spurted in a variety of colorways and materials. Its silhouette, however, remained timeless and classic.
