PRO-Keds, an athletic footwear brand that's a part of the major Keds company, recently diversified its collection of 'Royal Sneakers.'

The design, which is similar in structure to some of Converse's classic Chuck Taylors, is complemented by a thick rubber sole and laces that take up much of the upper. The updated versions of the sneakers come in either a low or high-top variations -- with colorways taken over by elegant neutral themes.

The most interesting part of PRO-Keds' creation however is its use of fur-like suede fabric, which adds more dimension to the neutral tones and spices up the overall appearance. With this, the suede sneakers are still versatile to wear but also offer a flare of uniqueness that's likely to get the wearer's feet a few more glances at the same time.
