Keds Celebrates 100 Years Making Sneakers With Their 1910 Themed Shoe

A little history lesson: Keds were the OG sneaker, created in 1917 and named as such because their rubber soles allowed them to "sneak" around without detection. And to celebrate their upcoming centennial, they've created ten decade-themed shoes, the first of which is like the comfier version of a saddle shoe. Their 1910 Take Flight sneaker retails for $50 and is available exclusively at TheOriginalSneaker (where you can also peek at a style gallery provided by Chictopia of girls and dudes rocking their own Keds).
