DIY Design Your own Keds

We are big Keds fans, and they didn't pay us to say that. We've just been wearing them since we were kids, not to mention they're comfortable, affordable, and versatile. We hadn't known that Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn,and Jacki O. were all fans of these comfy kicks, too! Something about that makes us feel even more amazing when we wear them.

As of late, Keds has been teaming up with designers and artists to create bold, colorful versions of their traditional lace-ups and slip-ons. It may have been these collaborations that inspired the shoe company to start the Design Your Own Keds program ($60). We're kind of blown away at the amount of control given over the custom design. Up to 16 different parts of your Keds can be different colors, patterns, text, or images if you so please! In the end, you are free to purchase your own Keds or put them up for sale on Zazzle for others to enjoy. Why not make a little profit off your creative endeavors? Thumbs up to Keds for empowering us all to be shoe designers.
