All the classic good looks of our beloved champion sneaker, now in sleek, sophisticated, and oh-so-soft tumbled leather. We lined these leather shoes with soft canvas for breathability and added ortholite insoles for cushy steps.
A true American original, the Champion sneaker from Keds has been updated with a soft cotton terry lining, a more secure heel, a roomier toe, and improved arch support. This classic sneaker is a wardrobe staple that pairs perfectly with casual wear.
In 1916, the Keds brand was introduced by the U.S. Rubber Company as the first national athletic and lifestyle footwear brand. At this time, the shoes were called sneakers, a term invented in late 1916 because the rubber soles made the shoes quiet. Worn by Olympic soccer players, scores of National and International tennis champions, and many college athletes, Keds was coined the shoe of champions because of its reputation as America’s premier athletic brand. Not only was Keds a leading athletic brand, it was also the brand of choice for leading style icons due to its classic, stylish, and authentic characteristics.
