You may not want to put yourself in someone else's shoes, unless those shoes are vintage Keds. These iconic American shoes came to life around 1960. They take the title of first shoes with a solid rubber sole, earning them the title of "sneaker" for their ability to let users sneak around discreetly. The company produces casual street-style footwear along with a line of sneakers for serious athletic use, such as vintage Pro Keds. These sneakers feature the same hardy rubber sole earning casual Keds their reputation, but pack more cushioning into their uppers, which come in thick and sturdy canvas. Canvas gives these shoes excellent longevity, preventing against holes and tears. It also serves as a receptive medium for graphics and images, making it a star choice for displaying cartoons, flowers, and other unique images that you associate with vintage Keds. These shoes grace the feet of hipsters and serious athletes, including many basketball stars. Soft and comfortable, they see frequent use in schools, often comprising the footwear portion of school uniforms. Keds' popularity waxes and wanes over time, coming into vogue with various fashion trends. Some models, like The Champion and Keds Triumph, enjoy widespread popularity and historically high sales. Look for these shoes and more on eBay, where a large inventory gives you many options to consider.
