Size and fit

Following the success of the Keds Champion MLB Pennant and the Keds Double Decker MLB, Keds also made a special release of a Major League Baseball version of its bestseller Keds Kickstart shoe. This unique Kickstart rendition features a breathable canvas upper that conforms to the foot's shape combined with a 6-eyelet lace-up closure for a customized fit. Addition of cushioned insoles ensured a plush fit and feel.  

The women’s Keds Kickstart MLB sneakers are offered in sizes US 5 to 11, half sizes included, in B Medium or Standard width. The fit is generally true to size both in length and width.

The colorways released include Red Sox, Cubs, Dodgers, Yankees, Indians, Cardinals, Cubs Pinstripe, and Yankees Pinstripe. 

As with other shoes in the Keds Kickstart collection, this shoe flaunts an always-on-the-go vibe that you can wear it anywhere, anytime for a day full of errands, casual activities, or anything under the sun. 

Notable Features

The Keds Kickstart MLB is a familiar sight especially to loyal Keds followers because of its base model, a brand’s bestseller known as the Keds Kickstart. While it shadows the original Kickstart’s construction and key features, this MLB special rendition attracts attention with its MLB-themed aesthetics. This shoe dons the logo (either embroidered at the heel or printed all-over the upper) of a respective MLB team depending on the colorway. 

Keds Kickstart MLB History

It was in 2016 when US-based sneaker brand Keds, which was founded in 1916 initially as “Peds” under the United States Rubber Company, first dropped a collection of women’s sneakers that commemorates a famed sports event known as the Major Baseball League or MLB in short. Included in that special release is the Keds Champion MLB Pennant, a version of the classic and iconic Keds Champion low-top sneakers that is characterized by baseball-inspired aesthetic such as baseball stitch detailing on the upper and embroidered MLB team logos with each colorway representing an MLB team. 

The following year, another famous Keds silhouette received an MLB transformation – the Keds Double Decker shoes. Officially named as the Keds Double Decker MLB, the shoe was made available in six colorways with each colorway representing MLB teams, including the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs, Texas Ranger, SF Giants, NY Mets, and Boston Red Sox. 

Following the success of the previous MLB renditions of different popular Keds silhouettes, the brand also made an MLB rendition of one of its bestsellers – the Keds Kickstart. The MLB rendition called officially as the Keds Kickstart MLB was also released as part of the Keds MLB Collection in March 2019. It mimics the original Kickstart model with its low-top construction, lace-up closure, canvas upper, cushioned insoles, and flexible rubber outsoles. In this version, however, the canvas upper adorns logos of different MLB teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, and Boston Red Sox.
