20 Keds Kicks

From Furried Footwear to Patent Leather Sneakers

— August 25, 2010 — Fashion
Keds' classic canvas shoe, with rubber soles and white laces, are certainly an iconic shoe. As a symbol of eighties fashion, Keds kicks continue to evolve in the style world.

To see the latest in Keds kicks, from furried footwear to patent leather sneakers to military-inspired shoes, check out this collection -- it will get you off on the right foot.

Implications - While some consider the 80s "lame," it's hard to ignore the fact that it's coming back strong. With bands like Blondie and Duran Duran reformed and old trends such as over-sized sunglasses dominating Hollywood, it's no surprise that the fashion community is increasingly inspired by the decade. But rather than regurgitating old styles, creatives are updating them with a modern twist that brings nostalgia to the older generation and something new and hip to the younger crowd.
