Keds Champion Animal History

Keds was founded in 1916 by the United States Rubber Company. The company initially wanted to use the name “Peds,” which is the Latin word for foot, but it was already registered to a different company. Then it settled for “Keds,” which is the Native American word for moccasins. The company saw the market potential and proceeded to produce rubber-soled shoes for casual use.
