With puffy, hidden-heeled, larger-than-life sneakers taking over the racks right now, the slim-soled plimsoll fans among us seem to have taken second fiddle. Thankfully, here's something fun for the slim-soled seekers out there — a new collaboration between the quirk-queens at Kate Spade and Keds will launch next spring, and will consist of eight styles that'll range from a slightly pointed-toe pink sneaker to a gingham-printed blue pair — the signature hybrid of witty-cute that Kate Spade does so well.
The sneakers will be sold at Kate Spade stores, Nordstrom, and on Nordstrom.com starting this February. Without the volume, height, exotic skins (and exotic price tags), we'd like to think of these shoes as the VW Bug in a sea of Hummers. (WWD)
