Size and fit

The Keds Double Decker Velvet is available in the women's sizing from 5 to 11, half sizes available. Even though this shoe runs true to size, some found this a tad narrow. Thus, it is suggested to grab a half size up for cozier strides.

This pair has elastic goring on both sides for easy slide on and off suitable for wearers who are always rushing out the door. The brand inserted the jersey-lined Ortholite sockliner with fabric inner lining to enhance the ride and keep the feet feeling fresh and dry all day long.

Keds Double Decker Velvet Style

The low-top Keds Double Decker Velvet delivers relaxed yet lavish look with its velvet upper seated atop a noticeable thick midsole. This model kept the simple details and highlighted the smoothness of its upper, making it easier to pair up with virtually any wardrobe. Ladies pair this up with dresses, shorts, or ankle pants matched with a button-down top. From the glitzy of sequins to ruggedness of denim, this kick will perfectly go well.

Notable Features

The thick white midsole of the Keds Double Decker Velvet gives this model an appealing, relaxed vibe - a time-out from the usual thinned-sole of most Keds' silhouettes. This facet has been lauded several times as it elevates the wearers' overall look while adding an extra inch to their heights.

Also, the soft texture of its velvet upper gives a charming and posh appeal while keeping the sporty heritage and budget-friendly price range. All these and more make this model worthy to be included in anyone's collection.

Keds Double Decker Velvet History

Keds has been unswerving in providing redefined shoes for men, women, and children since it was founded in the early 1900s. This brand was the very first to offer quirky and fun sneakers for women, little girls, and toddlers in canvas and leather materials and effortlessly turned as the favored go-to kick for every generation.

Through the years, Keds remained faithful to their signature guise- simple, laidback, cozy, and timeless. Several iterations were introduced to the market using the classic silhouettes from the archives of Keds as the base models to fit the full range of costumers’ preferences. Keds also collaborated with various artists, brands, and retailers to come up with unique and eye-catching sneakers.

The Double Decker is one of the most famous silhouettes of the Keds that has undergone quite a few revamping. Its 1-inch thick rubber midsole has easy to slip design favored by many wearers with an on-the-go lifestyle. This iteration was unveiled in several variations using different kinds of materials, such as leather, canvas, and velvet.
