You really gotta hand it to Keds - they've done an incredible job at an image makeover in the past several years. Kids these days may not even know that they used to be viewed as shoes that should never, ever be touched by anyone trying to be remotely stylish. But here we are in 2014 and they're collaborating with one of the hippest brands around (and also Taylor Swift, but you gotta sell shoes to teens too, you know?) We're a big fan of these Champion Mesh ($75) beauties, which are a little edgier than most kate spade offerings but still right on trend with the year's continuing perforation/mesh/sheer panelling leanings.
