Once called an American icon of sport, the well-loved Pro-Keds classic Royal silhouette comes back with a stylish flair in low-top built.

Just like its equally adored low-top Chuck Taylors, this Pro-Keds variety ties naturally well with denim, cropped shorts, and minis for an utterly laidback look or tailored pants and suits for an informal shabby chic flavor. If you want to get a bit bold and voguish, you may turn such footwear royalty into a conversation piece by slipping on it with your long dress or gown.

History of the Pro-Keds Royal Lo

Keds is known for its comfy rubber-soled footwear selections from the time it was founded by the American tire enterprise, the US Rubber Company in 1916. With the objective of offering sports footwear intended for on-court games and track and field pursuits, Keds came up with the Pro-Keds athletic shoe collection in 1949.

The Pro-Keds challenged the far prominent Converse All Star basketball shoe when it came out with its high-top version, the Royal. It immediately became a choice of footwear for backyard games to the professional leagues such as the NBA during the early 1950s for its light and breathable upper, non-slip sole, and cushioned insole.

The contemporary trends pushed the brand to refashion some of the iconic Pro-Keds models such as the classic Royal. One of the reinterpreted versions is the Pro-Keds Royal Lo which entirely slashed off the collar height of the original masterpiece.
