Summer Classic Sneakers: Keds

When I think of casual summer shoes, sneakers are the first that come to mind.

Like white ones.

Especially Keds.

It takes me back to summer camp when everyone had these cool slim sneakers. I wanted a pair but my parents couldn’t afford it so I got Payless versions and it worked out just fine. My friends and I would take our pair of Keds or look-a-likes and customized them with markers, stickers, etc. The shoes chronicled our ups and downs, from clean suburban streets to dusty camping trails…my Keds went through it all.

By the end of the summer, I would have a pair of battered sneakers filled with awesome memories that I would have to part with because they weren’t useful anymore. But when the next summer comes along, I’d get a brand new pair to start my adventures all over again.

Almost every year, I select a pair of summer sneakers. This year, I received a teal floral pair from Keds and once again, it’ll chronicle my summer excursions.

First stop?

An 8 mile bike ride across the Golden Gate bridge with my boyfriend!

    Keds are difficult to outgrow, they´re simply functional. Nice pair. :)
