This collaboration between Keds and Rifle Paper Co. resulted in a high-top sneaker that fits and feels like a classic Keds shoe but dresses your feet with the multi-colored Juliet floral print of the latter. The silhouette and shoe features still shadow Ked’s Kickstart Hi shoe model, but the aesthetics received this floral upgrade.

Footwear brand Keds partnered up with stationary brand Rifle Paper Co. to bring out a line-up of whimsical and romantic sneakers for spring. Their first collaboration took place in February 2017, which included three limited-edition sneakers that exhibit Keds’ classic silhouettes and Rifle’s fun prints. These sneaker models involved the Keds Triple Decker in Wildflower print, the Keds Triple Decker Slip-On in Lively Floral print, and the Keds Champion in Jardin de Paris print. Each pair retailed from $55 to $60 and sold out immediately. A re-release was made on March 9, 2017.

The two brands made another collaboration for floral sneakers in early 2018. The collection includes low-top sneakers, high-top sneakers, slip-ons, and platforms. One of the shoes is the Keds x Rifle Paper Co. Kickstart Hi Juliet Floral. Its base shoe is Keds’ classic Kickstart Hi silhouette, a high-top sneaker with a canvas upper, rubber outsole, 1-inch platform sole, and a lace-up closure. For the collaboration, the canvas received a fresh look with Rifle’s Juliet Floral print.

  • The Keds x Rifle Paper Co. Kickstart Hi Juliet Floral also features Ortholite insoles for cushioned comfort, leather logo and heel strap, 1-inch platform height, and flexible textured rubber outsole.
  • Rifle Paper Co.’s Juliet Floral print can also be seen in another Keds shoe, the Triple Decker.
