The Keds Courty is one of the recently released tennis-inspired sneakers from Keds that adds to the growing roster of updated versions of the brand’s classic line-up. Widely regarded as a veteran footwear brand, this US-based shoe company has been in the industry since 1916 and packs over a hundred years of production under its belt. Keds remains steadfast in providing its female market sneaker models specially designed for them.
Tracing the company’s roots leads to a corporation called the U.S Rubber Company which started in 1892. This corporation was originally composed of various rubber companies that are based in Connecticut. First products include tires and gloves and eventually expanded to footwear. In 1916, the companies under the U.S. Rubber Company agreed to combine all their footwear products and sell under one brand.
This new brand set to house all of these companies’ shoes was originally called Peds but after finding out that it was already taken they decided to change the name to Keds, which means moccasins in Native American. After the name was decided for, the brand released a steady amount of footwear that catapulted their popularity and earned them the reputation for coining the term ‘sneakers.’ Their product’s rubber soles were far quieter than previous shoe models and allowed wearers to ‘sneak’ and walk without any sound.
Staying true to its name, the brand’s championing model for a very long time is called the Keds Champion. Crafted with canvas uppers and rubber soles, this famous shoe had been originally worn by a wide range of athletes and eventually adopted by casual wearers. Today the company enjoys a steady success with the help of famous personalities as collaborators. Some of these known figures or brands are Taylor Swift and Kate Spade.
One of the countless products in Keds’ arsenal is called the Keds Courty. It boasts of straightforward design with a Twill-crafted upper. Colorway options include Navy, White, Black, and Light Grey Jersey.
