The Keds Champion Spring is a women's silhouette that is offered in measurements stretching from 5-11 M. Although long-time Keds users may already have an idea of how the brand's sizing goes, it is suggested to stay true to size or go half a size up for those with wide feet. The low-top silhouette and the traditional lace up closure permit an adjustable fit and freedom on the ankles.

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.

During this day and age when a sea of technology-infused sneakers is prevalent, it is surprising how certain sneakers can withstand the test of time, the Keds Champion included. Much like the range, the Keds Champion Spring fuses comfort and style, a winning combination that seems to work well no matter what the time decade is. The breathable canvas upper, which seems to be the epitome of casualness, offers superior comfort, durability, and versatility. The Ortholite sock liner, an open-cell polyurethane foam, boosts breathability, moisture management, and cushioning.

In 1892, U.S. Rubber was established pursuing the goal of harnessing the revolutionary vulcanizing process and produced 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.

  • The lining of the sneakers is composed of a soft and breathable material for additional comfort.
  • For traction and grip, a flexible and textured outsole is infused on the sneaker.
