Keds Century Collection Champion “Take Flight”

Cool Hunting reports on the first shoe (in a series of 10) from Keds’ new Century Collection. “The “Champion Take Flight” tackles the 1910s with a look that’s equal parts dapper menswear and ladylike detailing. Washed sateen lends an unexpected touch of shine, while a cap toe, other leather details and a striped lining speak to a classic early 20th century feel. We can imagine Amelia Earhart sporting the gum soled-footwear, though Keds cites “America’s coming of age during Industrial Revolution” as its inspiration.” Keds will introduce a new sneaker from the Century Collection each month, so look out for more. The Take Flight is limited to 200 pairs and available is now as a Keds.com exclusive.
