Spending his time in jail after being in debt of a significant amount of money to almost everyone in Philadelphia, Charles Goodyear began doing some experiments on rubber. It was then he discovered the vulcanization process in which increases the resistance of rubber and makes it last longer.
The discovery that Charles made pulled him out of the bankruptcy status and also transformed the production of rubber goods. Merging various rubber manufacturers in Connecticut, the U.S. Rubber Company was established in 1982. An extension of its product range was made by the company in which includes the release of rubber-soled shoes under various brand names. It was in 1916 that Keds was born as the U.S. Rubber made the decision of releasing their footwear products under one brand name.
The year 1949 was when the Pro-Keds was introduced for athletic purposes with different professional basketball players wearing the shoes. It was in the 1950’s that the Keds acquired high popularity with its minimalistic appeal on its designs and its reputation went on for years to come.
In 2016, Keds celebrated its 100th year anniversary. As part of its celebration, the brand embarked on its new Ladies First Campaign in which offers women’s shoes that are designed for stylish modern lifestyle. One of the silhouettes from this campaign is the Keds Scout Splash which is a “weatherized boot” minus the heavy-duty structure. The silhouette delivers comfort and a lightweight feel to its construction with a smaller image compared to bulky rain and snowshoes. The boot was made to be weather resistant to allow women to enjoy a day or night out without worrying about the weather and while still being in style.
