I’ve always been a fan of printed, colored, and embellished Keds. I suppose I could trace this back to my childhood when I insisted on drawing & puff painting my KEDS. I ditched my puff paints ages ago, but I still favor my printed Keds when it comes to cute, stylish comfort. I loved when Nanette Lepore started to embellish Keds in printed satin with her first collaboration with the shoe company. The skimmers I purchased from the first Nanette Lepore for Keds collection (pictured below) quickly became my favorite:
The idea of having a satin ballet flat with all the comfort of a sneaker was instantly appealing to me, but within a week of walking around New York City I noticed I had somehow torn the satin! Maybe this is why Keds have stayed true to canvas? I patched up my flats, and decided, I might as well give Nanette Lepore for Keds another go. This time the collection is mixing things up sequins and satin in purple and a feather print. I say, bring it on!
