Rated 2 out of 5Â by Hiker05 Changes were made in the shoe so that it no longer fits properly as it had for many years. For example, the toe box was changed so that it is no longer roomy enough for my toes. The length of the leather from the tip of the toes to where the grommets begin was shortened as was the tongue. The shoe is no longer laced as close to the ankle as before. The stitching above the grommets hits may feet in the wrong place as a result of the changes.
I have worn these shoes for many years. I am very disappointed in the changes. The design and construction served me well. Too bad for me it was changed. Perhaps Keds was trying to cut corners on the amount of leather used in the shoes.

Haven't had a pair of Keds since high school and wanted these for a Florida trip. I like the looks of these shoes better than the look of athletic shows with casual attire. I think they are a little more dressy.
The fit is good and the leather can just be wiped off if dirty. I chose leather over canvas for this reason.

I have like Keds for a very long time, these look very nice and are easy to keep clean.

I have purchased Keds for years, my go to summer sneakers. This is the second time I have tried them and noticed that the styling has changed and that it seems that the manufacturer is skimping on the material used to create the shoe. It feels as though the sides of the shoe are shorter and less sturdy and the all over feel is very uncomfortable. I have an old pair that I wear to garden and they are so much sturdier. Go back to the way they used to be, why does everything have to change, and, not for the better it seems.
