The Keds Courty Women’s Leather sneakers are available in sizes ranging from 5 to 11, in both medium and wide widths.

This low-top model is equipped with a soft jersey lining, a nicely cushioned footbed, and a padded collar. All of which work together to deliver superb comfort and unhindered ankle mobility. Moreover, a traditional lace-up closure, with five pairs of metal eyelets, provides the foot with a snug and secure fitting.   

The Keds Courty Leather exudes that classic female preppy style. Jeans, A-line skirts, dresses, skimpy shorts, and the sort would match this sneaker seamlessly.

As a tennis-inspired model, the Keds Courty Leather does equally well with sporty outfits, such as joggers, leggings, and yoga pants. So look like an on-the-go woman when you put on this versatile pair.

The Keds Courty Leather is most notable for its clean-white leather upper and midsole, subtly accented with navy blue and brown colors. Apart from that, two lines of tiny perforations vertically run along the vamp, and the rounded toe box has a T-toe overlay. This whole structure sits atop a durable, grippy rubber outsole.

When Keds arrived in the sneaker industry in 1916, no sneaker market for women existed. The only choice for women were heels. Seeing the potential market, Keds started becoming one of the first accessible, fashionable sneakers for women, who soon flocked around the new outing shoes, such as the Champion.

One hundred years later, Keds wrote in their special centenary campaign ad, “Ladies first since 1916.” The Keds Courty Leather is one of the brand’s newest offerings, stamped with the brand’s long-running white sneaker heritage.     

  • The sneaker has a trademarked Dream Foam Memory, featuring a thick layer of soft Memory Foam enhanced from underneath by a Dream Foam, offering optimal comfort.
  • Keds branding details are in the tongue, side, and heel area.
