Who should not buy it

The Keds Triple Decker may work better for you if you’re looking for a Keds sneaker with sufficient support. The Keds Champion Slip-on may work for you if you’re into something more durable. For wider feet, the Keds Kickstart Pennant may be something that fits better.

The Keds Chillax provides peak at-ease style

Those who have bought and worn them love the sneaker’s classic silhouette. At its very basic form, it reminds older sneakerheads of older models, one of whom said that it feels like the original Keds sneaker from the 1960s.

Its look has been so well-received that just having one pair wasn’t enough for several of those who tried them on. Some of them get additional pairs for their colorways, one of whom said that they feel like they are “collecting way too many colors in them.” Another loved the silhouette so much that they already got their 6th white pair.

The Keds Chillax kicks around nicely

Its slip-on feature left a wearer pleased that they got a shoe they can just “run out the door with.” Several others appreciated this feature, one of whom said that it was convenient after their hip surgery. A few pregnant women also loved this feature, one of whom said that although they slip on easily, they like that the sneakers “only come off intentionally.”

A tester mentioned that wearing it “feels like you have slippers on all the time.” It has been proven to be comfortable all day, accompanying a wearer in their 15-hour Disneyland journey, after which they mentioned that their feet “still felt amazing.”

The Keds Chillax comes at an amazing price

The Keds Chillax is priced at $55, making it even lower than the average price of a Keds sneaker at $60. Some wearers think this is a reasonable price, with one even exclaiming that “the price is right!”

Durability doubts?

A few of those who got a pair were dismayed that it only lasted them a few months. They attributed it to holes forming on top of their toes when wearing the shoes.
