A Southwestern Sole — Keds Champion Tribal Collection
Cross symbols, thick stripes, single and double dashes, geometric lines resembling rows of staggered bricks, and arrowhead icons all reference the Navajo-steeped culture of Southwestern textiles. March to the beat of the fashion world’s ongoing love affair with Native American iconography by slipping on a pair of Keds Champion Tribal ($45 at Keds.com) sneakers, a new limited-edition style available online only.
These streamlined kicks feature cotton canvas uppers, a lightweight twill lining, four eyelets with basic white laces, and a flexible white rubber outsole, making them idea for warmer spring and summer days when you’ll want your feet to breathe freely. If you want to capture the rich sepia, russet, coral, khaki, ochre, mud brown, and turquoise of the desert landscape, opt for the brown colorway, which features the most traditionally Southwestern combination of hues. For a more fashion-forward, bolder, more kaleidoscopic take on the tribal motif, opt for the navy pair, which feature touches of incandescent fuchsia, vermilion and cyan blue. Last, for a crisp look that will complement khaki-colored capri pants and white sundresses alike, choose the white sneakers, which incorporate pops of chartreuse, seafoam green, and royal blue.
