When Keds came out with shoes that were similar to the Vans style, I got myself a few pairs. These shoes have proven to be a satisfactory buy!
With so many different styles and material patterns to choose from, I found it very difficult to limit myself from not buying several more. I had to pull and eenie-meanie-miney-mo! There is so much character and personality in the shoes design, I love the expression they give off.
Of coarse this is an artistperspective. I like unique personalizeditems. Plus being slip ons, they are so easy to put on and go. It's easy to wear them with jeans or shorts, which many shoes seem to be unable to go both ways. I love my Keds and they are quality, style and comfort all in one shoe-and of coarse something that can fit in my minimal budget!
