Keds Studio Dash History
When it came to rubber, the whole of America and every industry there was entirely changed by the introduction of rubber. Rubber was crucial, and a significant aspect of life and in 1916, a company called U.S. Rubber changed it all. A merger of nine different rubber manufacturers, U.S. Rubber, began producing shoes under the name, Keds.
Historically, the first ever shoe that Keds released, which is surprisingly still widely popular today and a favorite for many, is the rubber-soled Champion canvas plimsoll aptly known as the Champion Original. It’s also a good thing to know that back in the 1910s, when championing women wasn’t really a thing, Keds marketed its sneakers for women, posing them as athletic shoes. With such a culture back then, it was only logical that women would try hard to get a pair of Keds sneakers. Its increasing demand led to Keds success, its popularity taking it well into the 1960s when celebs like Audrey Hepburn wore the shoes. Considering its strong presence, it really didn't come as much of a shock or surprise when the brand became a household name all over the USA.
Today, Keds still enjoys the popularity and is a favorite amongst the younger generation. Continuing celebrity endorsements such as Taylor Swift has undoubtedly fueled it some more. Through the years, Keds has innovated and adapted to the changing times, carefully curating and adding great shoes to its line up. At the same time, the brand remains faithful and true to its mission; to put women where they want and where they should be, and help them reach where they want to go.
