Bottom line

Same with cocktails, there's nothing more fascinating than getting a classic with a twist. Keds’ staple summer shoe gets a more summery makeover with Sunnylife's rendition. While the other pieces in the collection receive a more colorful treatment, the Andaman comes in a more muted hue, a navy and white upper, inspired by the waves of the sea.

The Keds Kickstart Sunnylife Andaman sizing is offered in ranges 5-11 Medium. Placed with six eyelets with lace to toe design, expect that these are strapped to your feet without a doubt.

Probably the most neutral out of all the pieces included in the collab collection, the Kickstart Andaman still conveys a summer-ready vibe with its nautical colorway. The geometric pattern in navy and white allows it to be paired with endless outfits. The website suggests to pair these with denim and everything white but don’t be limited as these make an excellent match even with colorful sundresses, flouncy skirts, and colorful capris. 

The collaboration with Sunnylife means that summer is endless. Inspired by the seas of the Andaman islands, these sneakers make the perfect summer piece to add on any collection. Its navy colorway contrasted with leather accents on the shoe strap and collar, not only adds contrast to the canvas upper but makes all more durable. 

Being one of the pioneers of sneakers, Keds had a considerable head start in the footwear industry as it was founded in 1916. Rubber-soled shoes, which is its pioneer product, garnered the term sneakers, translating to the tool that is used to "sneaker around" as it doesn't produce any sound.  

Throughout the history of the brand, several silhouettes were released. One of which is the Kickstart, a summer-ready shoe. Like its other classic models like the Champion, Triple, and Triumph, the Keds Kickstart gets several makeovers and dressed with different colorways and patterns. 

Matching that holiday look at the beach, Keds tied up with Sunnylife. Perfect for the summer and spring, Sunnylife stays true to its name of providing summer essentials from beach floaters to towels. Their playful and quirky designs certainly catch anyone’s attention which is pretty much an excellent addition more than its practicality. 

  • Each Keds women's kickstart Andaman purchased comes with a freebie Sunnylife cactus pin. 
  • Just like other Keds sneakers, the brand suggests to spot wash and let it air dry as part of its caring instructions.
