Keds Ace of Spades

Match made in heaven? Yes, yes, yes! To celebrate their 20th anniversary Kate Spade has joined forces with Keds creating a nautical meets polka dots meets gingham style (Oh I went there!) meets pink meets CUTE collection. Combining the sleek Keds sneaker with the Kate Spade signature witty and colourful flair, I predict these charming sneaks will be flying off the shelves next Spring.

Come February the collection (consisting of eight styles) will be available at Nordstrom and Kate Spade stores and on, and two Nordstrom exclusive styles will be available in March. Deborah Lloyd, President and Creative Director of Kate Spade New York feels, “It was the perfect opportunity to design a playful and versatile collection of sneakers that features bold graphics and colorful patterns, capturing the spirit of both Kate Spade New York and Keds,” and I couldn’t agree more.

As a girl who loves her cute and colourful ballet flats, I’m tickled pink (no pun intended). These slim-soled plimsoll sneakers are a breath of fresh air among the chunky, high-top, large-and-in-charge sneakers I’ve seen on the market lately. To each their own when it comes to style preference but I prefer a simple kind of life sneaker and think this collaboration is going to make girly girls around the globe fired up.

Will you buy a pair? Are you a Pink Lady or a Polka Dot Queen? Which pair do you like best?
