Keds

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Did you know the work “Sneaker” was created in 1916 by Keds! That’s right, Nike, Reebok etc owe this worldwide terminology to Keds. The iconic brand has been a part of some defining moments in history, making appearances in such shows as Happy Days, Saved by the Bell and movies such as Dirty Dancing (we all remember Jennifer Grey’s character, Baby’s famous dance scene on the stone stairs and bridge in her white Keds) and Twilight. Keds has even been a part of a few infamous moments in celebrity history, remember a shaved-head Brittney Spears and the umbrella incident? Yep, she was wearing Keds. Today celebs and the mere mortals who love them are still captivated by these comfy and iconic shoes. Designers and brands like Tracy Reese, Alice + Olivia, Madewell, and Steven Alan are just a few that have collaborated with the famous brand. The iconic shoes are available in solids and prints, slip-on and laced up styles.

 


The Champion has been the go-to Keds style sneaker since its creation. This season, Keds introduces some fun and whimsical prints which give a playfully modern touch to this classic silhouette. Show your love with the Champion Love Print Slip-On, rock the leopard-print flat trend celebs are loving right now with the Champion Animal Print Sneaker. Not a fan of leopard, try zebra with the Champion Zebra Print Laceless Sneaker, or if you just a print that’s a bit more girly, be like Elle Fanning and go for the Champion Floral Sneaker.

Trend Alert – Jeffrey Campbell Homg Low Wedge Sneaker

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

.From the time they hit the fashion scene, wedge sneakers have been a total hit. Fashionistas (and children of the 90’s) everywhere love the combination of the casual comfort of a sneaker with the style of a wedge. Those of us in the 90’s remember sneakers with huge platforms, a style the Spice Girls and club kids made popular.

Homg Low Wedge Platform Sneaker - Black

As one of the “sneakers” in Jeffrey Campbell’s JC Play Collection, the Homg Low Wedge Sneaker has been seen on several celebrities . In fact, both Miley Cyrus and Carly Rae Jepson were recently spotted in a pair of these flatforms, Miley in the studded version and Carly in the floral print. But don’t let the word sneaker fool you, these are not for athletic activities but then again shopping is a sport. You can rock them with denim shorts like Miley and Carly or really bring back the 90’s by pairing them with a cute summer dress.
