It may look like any ordinary platform shoe from the outside, but it has a hidden internal wedge heel feature that, together with the platform midsole, gives extra 2” height to wearers. A lace closure system, which includes five pairs of metal eyelets and flat cotton laces with metal aglets, provides a customized and secure fit. 

The Keds Rise Denim sneakers originated from one of the recent innovative models from the brand, the Keds Rise. It flaunts a classic platform styling finished off with a durable denim material on the upper that comes in three various colorways, such as Black, Cream, and Peach. 

While some find denim sneakers a bit challenging to style, the Keds Rise Denim could still be as versatile as other popular Keds sneakers. The platform sole adds more flair and edgy vibe, too. Ladies can pair this low-top with a white dress, short dress, maxi dress, or with more denim. 

Innovation meets comfort and style, that is the Keds Rise Denim platform sneaker. From the outside, it looks like another stylish platform shoe from Keds that's finished off with durable denim upper in different colorways. But from the inside, it is anything but that.

It released in many colorways and, over time, in different iterations.
