This second installment of the Keds and Opening Ceremony collaboration takes its inspiration from 70s British punk. Available in two styles, these classic Keds come in cheetah and zebra-print pony hair.

If you are salivating over these Opening Ceremony and Keds shoes, you'll have to wait until December to pick up a pair, but pricing is a tad steep at $125 U.S.D. per pair. Check out a sneak peek of the collection above.

Due to the rising popularity of celebrities and fashion icons experimenting with bold and unexpected patterns and fabrics, consumers now want to emulate the risk-taking styles seen in magazines and on television.
