The low-top Keds Double Decker Leather is a women's exclusive release with sizes ranging from 5 to 11. The brand's official site shows that this sneaker is made available in both Medium and Wide widths. This kick's slip-on construction generally fits true to size. However, some have reported it to fit tight in the first few uses but would eventually loosen up and fit comfortably after the break-in period.

The shoe is lined with a soft, breathable textile for enhanced ventilation and comes with OrthoLite insoles for excellent in-step comfort and cushioning.

Outfitted in a classic slip-on silhouette, the Double Decker Leather remains faithful to its predecessor and at the same time offers a modern style upgrade through a taller midsole. Its leather upper provides an elegantly chic vibe while the chunkier sole elevates the shoe’s overall aesthetic and adds height to the wearer too.

The kick’s versatile appeal allows flexibility and freedom to pair it with a multitude of casual ensembles. From a flowy dress or skirt and tank top for spring and summer seasons to jeans, shirt and jacket combo for the fall, the Keds Double Decker Leather could keep you looking stylish no matter the time of year.

This kick’s appeal lies in its seamless fusion of simplicity and modern double decked sole. It would resonate well with consumers who want something fresh from the brand without sacrificing Keds’ signature simplicity and time-tested comfort.

Although officially introduced in 1916, Keds as a company only gained mainstream global success during the early 90s. The brand has since been providing footwear for men, women, and kids, but with emphasis on the ladies and kids’ needs through fun and quirky shoe designs. Amidst their colorful and vibrant styles Keds stays true to their trademark style - straightforward, minimal, timeless and classic.

The brand also introduced countless variations of its classic Keds models through the use of different materials, prints, and styles with some being created through the help and interpretation of famous personalities via collaboration. One of their many reinterpretations of the classic is the Keds Double Decker Leather shoe. It displays a slip-on style with a touch of modern flair through its taller midsole. The sneaker comes in four color options: White, Natural, Black and Cognac.

  • Side elastic gore straps provide a lockdown fit.
  • Its rubber outsole is flexible and grippy.
  • The Double Decker Leather comes in two style variations: perforated or “perf” version and washed leather version.
  • Keds’ branding can be seen on the collar’s lateral side, insoles, rear midsole, and outsole.
