Size and fit

The Keds Double Decker Perf Suede is another rendition of the Double Decker silhouette. Like the original model, it boasts a low collar in a slip-on construction that offers wearers the convenience of easy on and off wearing. Elastic side gorings on both sides further enhance the fit of this shoe. Because of its profile, some wearers find this shoe tight in the toe box. 

Keds Double Decker Perf Suede Style

Elevate your casual styling with this perforated suede rendition of the no-fail Double Decker women’s sneakers from Keds. 

This low-top radiates a luxe-meet-sporty façade with its premium, rich suede upper accentuated with perforated detailing throughout the toe box. This fashionable slip-on is available in several colorways that are all as versatile as the original Double Decker silhouette and its other versions. The drizzle gray, gray, light pink, and taupe are just some of the released colorways that suit almost any outfit. 

Notable Features

US sneaker brand Keds is famous worldwide mainly because of its flat-soled Champion sneakers. But Keds did not stop there. It introduced a new line of sneakers that has a sole chunkier than the Champion's yet still comfortable and supportive – the Keds Double Decker. 

Like other Double Decker sneakers, the Keds Double Decker Perf Suede flaunts this distinctive sole unit that’s a lot thicker than the Champion’s material. The Double Decker’s midsole is slightly elevated, textured, and adds a bit of height to wearers. 

Aside from the signature Double Decker midsole, this particular rendition is unique on its way primarily because of its upper material. Unlike other Double Decker sneakers, the Double Decker Perf Suede features a plush suede upper with evident perforations on the toe box. 

Keds Double Decker Perf Suede History

Keds introduced the Double Decker sneakers as a modern reinterpretation of its classic models. It features a basic slip-on construction in varying materials, breathable linings and cushioned sock liners that ensure in-shoe comfort, and thick soles that give extra height and support. 

Over the years, the Double Decker grew into an extensive collection of different releases inspired by the original canvas or jersey slip-on. The famed silhouette instantly gained recognition for its superb comfort, versatile style, and convenience. It became a subject of collaboration between the brand and other partner artists or retailers, and redesigned for a broader market. 

Part of the Keds Double Decker collection is the Keds Double Decker Perf Suede. As the name suggests, it is the perforated suede version, which features a classic Double Decker tooling but with a suede upper and perforated toe box. The shoe initially dropped in several colorways for $50 a pair. 

Additional Info

  • The Keds Double Decker Perf Suede features a Dream Foam footbed for added comfort and support. 
  • Keds brandings are visible on the heel and collar. 
  • The rubber outsole is flexible and durable.
