Not Your Grandmas Shoes...Oh Wait Yes they are!!!

An oldie but goody, Keds have been a staple of feminine fashion for decades. Started in 1916, these fashionable, sweet sneakers were worn on the tootsies of some of America's Sweethearts. Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroes, Jackie O. Hey, if they are good enough for these ladies they are good enough for me! I do not currently own a pair of these puppies, but there is a pair (or two) that have got my name all over them...Keds new line, Dolce Vita, sport subtle pastel colors like, Ocean Blue, Celery green and Quail Lavender. Some other wear worthy colors are Bubble Gum Pink and Violet. Of course don't leave out the classic White, Navy, and Red. Any Nautical Pin Up girl can be seen wearing these for a day of sailing...or just pretending. Perfect mates for dungarees, shorts or capris. So let your feet set sail in a pair of Keds this Spring and Summer season. Get your pair now on just in time for your Memorial Day Picnic.

About Keds, taken from
"In 1916, Keds created an American Classic: the first shoe with a soft rubber sole, so comfortable & quiet you could "sneak" up on your boyfriend. This original sneaker, called "the Champion" has remained a style icon for over ninety years. Worn by Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O, and consistently celebrated by Vogue, Elle and Women's Wear Daily, Keds continues to attract fashion designers, stylists and top editors in the industry with their classic, authentic style. Today, a new generation has discovered the Keds brand, which is helping to inspire a collective spirit of new American style, youthful optimism, collaboration and togetherness."
