Happy Feet — Keds x American Rag Collection
Even as adults, we sometimes get tired of the whole loop-it-and-swoop-it bunny ears mess, preferring to let our feet slide right into a pair of laceless kicks. Keds has always been a leader in this realm thanks to its classic Champion style, with its fabric uppers and decorative eyelets along the vamp. And now that summer is quickly approaching, you’ll surely be looking for a lightweight, breathable, easy pair of kicks you can slip on and off, something practical and but effortlessly chic, conveying the carefree spirit of the season.
The Keds x American Rag collection, available exclusively at Macys.com, will be the answer to your spring and summer sneaker needs. The limited-edition collection consists of four whimsical, youthful, limited-edition versions of the iconic Champion style — all featuring the signature fabric uppers, rounded toe, and 1″ rubber platform outsole.
Those of you who like sparkle, can make those toes twinkle with the Keds by American Rag sneakers in Silver, which feature galactic-flavored metallic silver uppers with hints of black to add depth and dimension, along with black contrast stiching, and silver-toned eyelets; or Rose Gold sneakers, which feature uppers in this more unusual shade, with gold speckles brightening the fabric and brass-toned eyelets adding a sense of warmth.
Animal print lovers, meanwhile, will flock to the Zebra and Leopard designs, the former featuring black zebra stripes against a white backdrop, with black piping along the ankle collar and tongue, and the latter featuring a caramel brown backdrop, with spots rimmed in a deep muddy brown and featuring a perky red at their center. My favorites (no surprise here): the Keds by American Rag sneakers in Leopard, which take the classic animal print and liven it up via the addition of that red flash of color. All the styles retail for $45 a piece and are currently available at Macys.com
